religion in america

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , on February 19, 2009 by gothiclg

like any oter day that a teacher has become absentee for one reason or anouther many of the students in my sixth period biology class finished their work a lot earlier than expected and started socializeing with other students within the class. my small group of three talking to mostly each other as always. also, like normal, while the group had decided to split itself up a friend of mine brought up my pagan beleifs and asked if there was any specific gods that i choose to follow. one christian student in the room (who happened to be within earshot of said conversation) turned around and almost automatically started questioning my faith.

I got the usual set of “christianity is the one true religion and its god the one true and only god” speil that many christians have in their minds from the day that they begin the faith, both from the bible they choose to read and the pastor they choose to listen to. my rebuttle was “god hates gay people and i’m bi, why would i want to believe in a god that hated me?” as usual for all christians, he could give me no answer to this question that would make me beleive that the above statement to be false and come to his religion as he (and many others with a shared faith) had tried to do.

in all off the time i have spent asking this question i am yet to find a single christian that was able to give me the answer i seeked. one pastor had even tried “god loves all his people” but was, again, stumped when i asked “then why does the bible that he dislikes gays?”

as time passes it seems even more unlikely that i will ever find an answer in christianity since anything they would try to say would contridict something said in the bible and, having my sexuality always getting in the way of any possible monothiestic beiefs for me, would never be able to convince me to hold my faith in the “one true religion” and the god they wish to call “their one true god”.

the german halocaust: not just for the jews

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on February 5, 2009 by gothiclg

everyone has heard at least a little about the halocaust in nazi germany, even if it was just a small peice in a history textbook during school. many have also heard that one of the main groups targeted by adolf hitler was the jews. they were not the only ones targeted.

hitler also targeted the disabled, old, gay, and criminals. all of these were added to the list to help make a more perfect arian race as hitler had set out to so. “pink triangle prisoners”, which included homosexuals and anyone convicted of a sex related crime, where often used as target practice by ss officers in the camps. each prisoner wore an identifying triangle (to show they were jewesh, homosexual/sex crime, ecetera) making them easy to pick out from the group.

even after the end of the halocaust, when most were being compensated by germany for their suffering, gays where not. because they were on the same level as sex crime convicts they were considered to be on the same level as the criminals. this is shown with the words of  Heinz Hegar: “My request for compensation for the years of concentration camp was rejected by our democratic authorities, for as a pink triangle prisoner, a homosexual, I had been condemned for a criminal offence, even if I had not harmed anyone. No restitution is granted to ‘criminal’ concentration camp victims.”

religion in america

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on February 4, 2009 by gothiclg

for many americans, religion plays a major role in life. even lack of religion is importnant to some. something that still comes up in this “land of the free” is religious intolerance.

many people follow christanity, catholisisum, jewdism, mormonism, and many other monothiestic religions. many of these claim that all other gods are false, that their god is the real god,nd any other religion causes you to go to hell. all of these religions look for people to convert while all contridict each other. there are also pagan religions (multiple god religions) and athiestic veiwpoints that get thrown into this mix, most of which contridict each other.

while all (with the exception of pagan religons and agnostics) say that their god is the only god or that god doesnt exist it will often cause problems between people and may cause jokes from various shows such as american dad where one charecter will beleive in god while trying all means possible to convert an athiest because of his beleif that the friend will go to hell without beleiveing in the christain god and accepting him as his own.

with many pagan religions showing opposite beleifs and being misunderstood by people due to the media their often looked at as evil and bound to cast “evil spells” on anyone who crosses their path and many other myths. they tend to be less accepted than many of the other religions. none are considered equal here and many will face some sort of adversity because of their religious beleifs, no matter what god (or gods) they choose to beleive in or for a lack of.

Choke hold

Posted in Uncategorized with tags on February 3, 2009 by gothiclg

I keep old pictures

In a box in hopes

That the past wont

Come back to

Haunt me worse

Than it already does.

 

I know the image

Of him remains there

And wounder when

The choke hold he

Has on me will

Release and life

Will return to what

Others call normal.

 

I know I should

Be cautious given

History but when

Is it going too far?

veiw on womens weight in america

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on February 2, 2009 by gothiclg

we’ve all heard about how being too heavy or too thin is a bad thing. things such as eating disorders pop up all over the place from the lower class ot the top celebreties we see in the tabloids today. one thing that drives up the desire to be thin is that many women are expected to be thin and are often critisized, even by their own family, for being “fat” even when they are at a healthy body weight. many women who are already “thin” or at a healthy body weight will diet or turn to an eating disorder to become thiner, often to impress many men that find this attractive.

isnt it time for a change america?

super bowl

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , on February 2, 2009 by gothiclg

another year with another super bowl. we get to hear about the 3-million-dollars-for-thirty-seconds commercials and many watch to laugh at them. they range from “this makes total sense” to “what the hell?”. football fans will even watch the game and others watch for the halftime show.

i have to be a fan of the etrade commercials that started up next year. the babies are cute and they come up with the coolest things to make them do. renting clowns with the extra cash, talking on a blackberry, pukeing and saying “woah”, this year, they even have a baby that raps! it makes me giggle every time that they can come up with such funny things to make adorable babies to do. not to mention, when it comes to clowns, the baby can “really underestimate the creepiness”.
