Sometimes people suck (and other uplifting thoughts)

I’ve been struggling with negativity again as frustrating events cause stress. From Facebook jerks to random vandalism to the expected stress of an ex, the negativity compounds until I can conclude that sometimes people suck. The move from home to home is on-going. We have the old place through the end of November so we’re … Continue reading

God offers a cup of STFU. No, really.

Let me start off by providing John 3:5-6, 9-12: Likewise the tongue is a small part of the body, but it makes great boasts. Consider what a great forest is set on fire by a small spark. The tongue also is a fire, a world of evil among the parts of the body. It corrupts … Continue reading

The Catholic Country Club

Something that I find ironic is that when I was Catholic, I felt on the outside due to the person God matched me with, who wasn’t a born and raised Catholic like I was. Now that I’m Episcopalian, I only feel on the outside with my Catholic friends. My best friend is a devoted Catholic … Continue reading

No Drama Zones are childish

It never fails that the people who cry about being “NO DRAMA” are the ones who whine endlessly about drama on their Facebook walls. Good Lord. If you want no drama, stop being dramatic. Just live like a fucking adult where you’re cool about some things and get upset about other things. We’ll understand. That’s … Continue reading

Tea bagging is undignified for the GOP and I don’t like Facebook jerks

Very recently, I was randomly personally attacked by a “right-wing conservative” on Facebook. It was someone else’s facebook and this other person just started in on me when I wasn’t even talking to them or saying anything particularly specific or offensive. The guy was so full-throttle in his argument that he had the whole argument, … Continue reading

One woman’s imaginary choice should negate any woman having a choice, says a famous guy

So Tim Tebow, a top 2010 NFL draft pick, and his mom Pam want to take some time during the Superbowl on February 7th to talk about her getting deathly ill back in 1987 when she was pregnant with him in a context that states that her choice to keep her pregnancy somehow justifies denying … Continue reading

State of the Union: It’s Complicated.

I watched the President’s State of the Union Address like I always do. I watched all of George W. Bush’s State of the Union Addresses, as much as they hurt to both listen to the disjointed speaking and the disagreeable talking points. The fact is that this is my country, I’m interested in what the … Continue reading

An excuse to hate

“Hate the sin, love the sinner.” said Mahatma Ghandi (1869-1948). Most of us are aware that this quote was not Christian based, despite being seized and used repeatedly to articulate the manner in which many believe it is permissable for Christians to hate. “Hate” is the operative word. From hate comes fear, exclusivity, discrimination, and … Continue reading

Godly Sorrow?

Having grown up around fairly negative people throughout my childhood, I’m acutely aware of my own negativity and make conscience choices not to get too carried away with that focus. Even now, I’d had the intention of writing this post with a list of things that annoy me and couldn’t bring myself to do it. … Continue reading
