So, I started my Ethics class two weeks ago, and it's getting kinda hairy. There is only 22 of us, and there is already a line in the sand. On one side, there are the "so obviously atheist/agnostic it is not funny" and "The bible says it is the good book so I am going to agree with it.".
The question for Wed. was "are you a relativist or an absolutist?". I, either misreading or just not really explaining myself, stated that I was an absolutist. There are things that I…Continue
In Crawford,Tx an 11 year old girl was gang raped by 18 adult men. I call them adult men because I'm sorry, if you are a young man(age 16) and you willingly rape an 11 year old girl, you are now an adult.
What makes me angry is the fact that there are honestly people playing the race card. An 11 year old girl has been brutally raped, and people are just so selfish and self-important that they just HAVE to remove the responsibility that is firmly on the correct shoulders, and…Continue
A lot of things I can overlook, or just scream saying "You idiot". But this...this...just...
Let me give some background. I'm an Anne Rice fan(ducks), and she posted this on her fan page on fb basically like "What in the name of God"...
Today, my friend Sonia posted a link on the avertisements(I suck at spelling this word, must look it up) and how they affect women. They stated that 70 percent of the women who looked at the fashion pictures in mags of women in various postitions like laying on the ground..on their knees...eating a corn dog(kidding on the last one) within three minutes felt guilty,shameful, and depressed.
And I guess in some way I'm part of the 70 and 30. I see the women there and want to be…Continue
I'm a bit hungry, but I can write this out...
So, I've been noticing lately that I have become that sterotype that is dangled over the head of every newborn christian: the angry atheist. I've tried to count to 10, breathe deeply, and just relax...
But I still want to smash someone's skull in. I'll explain.
The boyfriend's grandmother on his mom's side is what one would call "Jan Crouch". The only difference between them is that her husband…Continue
So, I have a few friends from my "pre-atheism" days. Well, one of them has been *unknowingly he says* been pissing me off.
It's not good for my health to be that filled with range when someone says a dispariaging comment about heathens. It's not good that I see red when he "muses" about the fact that the medical folks calling a fetus a fetus making it easier to kill.
But I did. Oh dear sweet tapdancing Jesus I did. I would pull him aside and explain in detail…Continue
I spent the day with the boyfriend's aunt. And she's sweet. But she really really really really really really hates Obama. I mean, I'm not a fan, but I just don't know how to respond to a woman who gets HOSTILE about Obama.
It makes me want to hide any kids that occur from my relationship from her just in case she thinks one of them looks like Obama and she eats them.
I guess what it is for me, is just the surprise that she isn't liberal as I thought she…Continue
