At the beginning of class today, I explained my view of “Judge not, that ye be not judged.” I finished the class with a tirade against Bill O’Reilly’s right to defend Christmas since he’s such a horrible person.
Man, do I feel like a hypocrite! Next time, I’ll just have to deal with his awful logic. It’s much less hypocritical and a lot more compelling. Sorry Jesus. Please forgive me.
I was asked to take an interest inventory the other day and guess what? I need to become a flight attendant. Oh well. Wish I had known that before I got my PhD in Theology!
Anyway, the results had to go through someone at the University before they got to me. Homan and I were a bit concerned because we both answered that we dislike religious people. I’m not sure why the question was on the test, but at least I didn’t answer “strongly dislike”!
It’s a shame really. The folks that have given me the most crap in my life have been religious folk. Of course, some of my dearest friends are religious too. Yeah, they’re not all bad (religious folks, not my friends) but I wish they could be less judgmental and more loving. It’s a shame really.
Scientists in Columbia have discovered a snake that lived about 60 million years ago. So what? You ask!
It was 42.7 feet long and weighed 2500 pounds! Back then, it was about 10 degrees warmer in Columbia than it is today. That’s partially why the snake lived then. Guess I’ll ride my scooter more!
Iceland’s ruling coalition resigned Monday, three months after the collapse of the country’s currency, stock market and several major banks, and following months of public protests, Kristjan Kristjansson, a spokesman for the prime minister told CNN.
I really don’t know what the heck this means, but I wish folks like our own David (AKA Diaper Dave, Vitty Cent, etc) Vitter would follow suit.
I just had an email exchange with someone who is praying for the salvation of President Obama. You guessed it….it was a waste of time. However, the discussion has reminded me that I must continue to “Kick against the pricks.” (I know it’s a bad use of the text, but it’s funny.)
My only problem is that I want to continue to speak out against harmful stuff that Christians say and do without looking as judgmental and arrogant as they are. Pray for me. I need the prayer and you need the practice.
But be forewarned:
I don’t have money, but what I do have are a very particular set of skills…skills that make me a nightmare for people like you.
I made the pledge to spend some money locally for Christmas. My trip to the Quarter was really cold the other day, but because I was visiting my friend, it was worth it.
My oldest and I headed down to Magazine Street this morning to finish up my local-buying fest. The present I was looking for had been sold out (totally my fault for waiting so long!) so I bought an over-priced item probably made in China anyway. I had to walk up to the counter where the two pretty girls were sitting on their butts and ask for help. Then I went down to the Dirty Coast shop to fill up on T-Shirts. Not open until noon. It’s Christmas freakin’ Eve guys! I know you probably had a big party last night. It’s Christmas freakin’ Eve!
Then I noticed that I got a parking ticket. Funny, but I still had ten minutes left on the receipt that was on the dash where it was supposed to be. Oh, heck yeah I’ll pay it because it’s not worth my time taking a day off! Besides, It’s Christmas freakin’ Eve! Why should they be writing tickets anyway!
