When you start to notice a real pattern in your life, it’s probably time to take a look at yourself, you know? Like, if you are constantly getting in fights with your friends but none of your friends are getting in fights with each other, maybe you are the problem! That’s not a great example, because who even gets in fights with friends anymore? You just stop POKING THEM BACK on FACESPACE! The point is, take a look around. Maybe everyone else is the problem, sure, but maybe actually you are the problem. Like, I feel like Christians often complain that they are getting mistreated and misunderstood and maybe they are, I don’t know. Perhaps in the aftermath of the Great War on Christmas, when the smoke clears and the rubble has been swept away, maybe then we will finally know what was what. But maybe they can stop making low budget mail-order DVD parodies of reality TV shows providing married women with inspirational bible stories to help guide them through their relationships with both husband and GOD. Just for awhile. See if maybe that was part of it?
Oh, so it’s still the gays and the Jews and the women who would like to be in charge of their bodies and the people who feel that the very concept of a God is so vast as to be unknowable and so maybe we should at least stop pretending to be so self-righteous about our impossible knowledge and give everyone the chance to live their lives as best as they know how without the constraints of our personal belief systems that are being weird? Got it. (Via WarmingGlow.)
