I'm a little tired of God getting all the credit.

This is just a rant.  But it was brought into the front of my mind by something I saw recently.  It was "Letters to Santa" at the post office, and they were reading letters of some of those in need. It was heart wrenching, and one story in particular stuck in my mind.  It was a man, former military, unemployed, and struggling to feed his kids.  He talked about how he was scrapping for any small job he could take to make a little money, and then he thanked God for keeping his children…

Chapter Two; MAKING THE SPIRIT REAL part six

Other adherents will offer this option to me, “If you only would trust your heart, then you would know that God is real.” To this I say, “I have followed what I felt was the Lord's leading in my life for many things as surely as you feel that you are now.”   This also includes for family, friends, in jobs, relationships, where to go for trips and much more. There is not a single area that I didn't try to “bring under” the power of God.  Even my marriage.  But the facts of reality must be…

This is the nativity scene that's at the #Tcsgrv manor. Despite protests... it is staying.

Actually, I have long ago grown tired of the offensive, unimaginative, and repetitious 'nativity scenes' that pollute both public and private lands.

Thus, I have hastily drafted my own version to counter the mediocre versions.

Enjoy.

Mondo Diablo Episode 289: Lassie's Christmas





When I was hunting for something to chop up for you, I realized I hadn't really, truly included a depressing Christmas Special for you yet, so here it is. Every year that "Lassie" was on, there was a depressing Christmas special episode. Some more depressing than others. I assure you, however, that Lassie's getting injured is not part of this particular episode. This one involved rather the true spirit… Continue

I Need Some Advice Please Read

Two months ago I met a girl.  We get along really really well.  We went on a date and talked, it seemed like, all night.  When we got to our respective homes we called each other and kept talking.  Throughout the week we talk to each other and meet up for drinks, but sex has never been a part of it.  I think we both want to see this relationship start slow and build into something beautiful.  I have never met a woman who isn't turned off by my confidence (I can get a little cocky, okay, a…

Porqué cada vez que dices "medicina alopática" haces llorar a un bioquímico.

Por G.P.Plascencia

Repitan conmigo: "No existe la 'medicina alopática', solo existe la medicina moderna".

El término "medicina alópata" tiene diferentes significados dependiendo quién lo utilice; personalmente me parece correcto apropiado dividirlos en de la siguiente forma.

Las iglesias... tremendo negocio

 

Cuando estaba en el cristianismo, creía firmemente en el asunto de diezmar para poder ser bendecida por el dios de los cristianos. Según dice la biblia, tienes que traer tus diezmos al alfolí para que haya alimento en la casa de Dios. También dice que pongas a Dios a prueba, pues él abrirá las ventanas de los cielos para derramar sus bendiciones sobre ti (si es que diezmas).

 

Como yo era tan fanática del dios de la biblia, le daba énfasis a ese aspecto de la religión…

Eran muchas las preguntas que cruzaban por mi mente, pero lo que más me molestaba era su silencio

 

Cuando era cristiana fui convencida de que los que estábamos en la iglesia o le servíamos al “Señor” no teníamos porqué estar enfermos o vivir en la pobreza. La enfermedad se consideraba un castigo y la pobreza una maldición. El pastor predicaba siempre que teníamos que estar en victoria, pues Jesús había llevado nuestras enfermedades hasta la cruz y también se había hecho pobre (siendo él el rey del universo) para que nosotros fuéramos ricos.

En mi trayectoria, en…

Chapter Two; MY MORMON MISSION part five

When I recently visited a Church of Jesus Christ and Latter Day Saints in Ponca City, Oklahoma, this was shown not to be the case. To give a little background, before I proceed, would be helpful. While I was serving in the Army, one of my roommate’s was a Mormon from Idaho. I think our commanding Sargent thought it would be a “good” idea to put the more outspoken religious believers together to make sure they wouldn't mess with the men that wanted to go out, party and have girlfriends, while…

A Beautiful Billboard Indeed

This billboard in the Carolinas is just right, in my opinon.  Nobody can say anyone's "forcing" anything on another, yet nobody can say free-thinkers don't care.  It's just right.  Hail truth, mythology be damned.  And don't forget the upcoming Solstice Eclipse, another awesome wonder of our universe.

The crazy keeps on coming...

I find myself in the odd position of being the one in the house defending Christmas. A little background first.



My wife is a fundamentalist Seventh Day Adventist, or more accurately they seem to be some branch of the Seventh Day Adventists. My wife joined another fundamentalist church known as the ICOC about 10 years ago. This turned out to be a cult and they managed to indoctrinate me as well. While it was a truly alarming experience to go through, I think the net result was good. I… Continue
