Quote for Discussion: Gomorrah

As soon as Linda, one of the girls in our group, saw the dead body slide out from behind the steering wheel, she started to cry and hid behind two of the boys.  A strangled cry.  A young plainclothes officer grabbed the cadaver by the hair and spit in his face.  Then he turned to us and said:

“No, what are you crying for?  This guy was a real shit.  Nothing happened, everything’s okay.  Nothing happened.  Don’t cry.”

Is This The Dole God??

On a visit over to VetVoice in an open thread there was a reply with this link that you should visit, which had this photo:

We are going to intercede at the site of the statue of the bull on Wall Street to ask God to begin a shift from the bull and bear markets to what we feel will be the ‘Lion’s Market,’ or God’s control over the economic systems. While we do not have the full revelation of all this will entail, we do know that without intercession, economies will crumble.

Do You Know You Sins?

I will make this short and sweet, since I do not do much posting about religion unless I see something that I feel needs attention.

Do you know your 7 deadly sins?  Pride, envy, gluttony, greed, lust, wrath and sloth; there is so much I could write about each one of those, but why?

Recently in the Vatican newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, has listed addition to the age old list of sins.  These are polluting, genetic engineering, being obscenely wealthy, taking drugs, abortion, pedophilia and generally causing social injustice.  The Catholic Church has violated at least two of the new sins.  Just my opinion.

If you live by the old list ans now you must live by the new additions.  I want to see how this works out for the church.  There are a few in the church that as of this writing are violating many of the taboos.

Just thought I would see if there are any thoughts on this.  Personally, I do not care! I am a Gnostic.  Your thoughts.

Internalized homophobia without the fancy words

I’ve never forgiven myself for being gay.

That’s not too surprising.  I’ve never been able to forgive myself for much of anything.
