i’m supposed to be getting ready for work. and yet, here i am. 😉 i am going to put down my immediate reaction to something, and i don’t usually do this. mostly because when i have done this ‘trigger-reaction’ responding, i’m usually wrong. i fail to look something up, and comment harshly on the thing, and lo and behold i was completely off base, or didn’t have the whole picture.
well hell, i’m human. it’s what we do.
so my response today is to something i saw here on wordpress, a video clip. i don’t know if the author/group is called this, or if it’s the title of the blog, ok? but it said “only God forgives UK”
so i’m assuming this is a group.
i hate this. i used to be a Christian so i’m not bashing all Christians, and i sometimes understand where they are coming from. but seriously? (sorry Kiki, stold your word) only God forgives? seems to me that a lot of people have to forgive things; indiscretions, abuses, failures. forgiving is something we have to do on a fairly regular basis. every time someone does me a bad, i don’t go around with a bat and smack em a black eye!
now ABSOLVING might be a better word. because where i can forgive – or pass over – someone’s mean spirited behavior toward me, ABSOLVING them of “sin” or their wrong doing is not in my power. not that i necessarily believe in sin. but i can’t ABSOLVE anyone of anything. i tried that once, and only ended up with a lot of honey and a can of miscellaneous motor parts. very bad idea.
anyway, rename your group, stupid! the Bible actually TELLS us to forgive, so if it wasn’t possible, why would your God tell you to do it in your magical manual? and stop telling the world what to think and believe!
OK. rant over. put clothing on. go to work.
whew. being a bitch is exhausting. i think i’ll take up gambling instead.
