Why friends are good, and also difficult

November 12, 2010
In the thick of the street festival, some demo...

I’ve had a lot of mixed reactions from friends since starting this blog and ~spiritual journey~. Some Christian friends have been extremely supportive of me, and even said that by questioning God I’m showing more reverence for him than the people who blindly believe. And then again. Not that many of my friends have been abrasive to me. Only my parents have shown their discontent at my new life change, at least up until a few days ago. Now, I…

Secularism? There’s an app for that.

October 26, 2010

Recently, the house that I moved to received the internet, which meant (amongst other things) this to me- that my iPod touch would once again me app-able. I was extremely excited about this, as I had heard about an anti-Creationism app and had been eager to try it, but it wasn’t available in the Android store. And now I have one. “Creationist Claims Index” is an iPod and iPhone app that takes every Creationist claim that certainly I can think…

Harry Potter: My Personal Rebellion Inspiration

October 21, 2010

As a young girl, I hardly ever rebelled against my parents’ wishes. When I did rebel (such as when I saw, or rather heard, my first Rated R movie at the age of 11) I felt extremely guilty about it. In fact, when I went to family therapy for one session around the age of 12, I cried over simply having cussed at all. I was clearly a delicate child. The one rebellion that I never felt guilt over? Definitely…

A Public Apology: I Am A Dick

October 7, 2010

I would like to publicly apologize to anybody who has been hurt by my words that I have put on this blog, or anybody who feels that my lack of faith has personally affected them negatively. I would mostly like to apologize to my parents and my brother for my hostile attitude this summer; I wasn’t myself, and I wish to be able to share with you my new, improved, medicated, much healthier self soon. I’m not religious, but if I were,…

Thank You, Grilled Cheesus!

October 7, 2010

Now that I live with my sister and my brother-in-law, there are certain things that are expected of me. One such thing is that I wait until my sister gets home on Tuesday nights to watch Glee with the family. This is a rule that I clearly broke when I found out that the episode was going to be about religion. In the first minute and a half, one of the characters (Finn, for those of you who watch the…

Real Time

~so thoughtful of me~

Before you read: just so you know, this is an extremely long rambling post meant mostly for me to figure things out for myself. If this is all tl;dr: I WILL PROBABLY WRITE MORE PERSONAL THINGS HERE IN ADDITION TO COMPLAINING ABOUT CHRISTIANITY. For those of you who know me in real life and have an interest in the inner workings of my brain (I’m looking at you, Knowlsey) read on. Obviously, it isn’t a huge secret that I have…

Royally Pissed

August 26, 2010

 Well, finally! A place where little girls’ dreams and ambitions go to die. Okay, that’s probably a bit harsh. I can understand that this ministry is seeking to help children by telling them early on that they should be focused on God, and that their identity is in God. But in my own personal opinion, not only does this perpetuate and indoctrinate young girls into the idea that their whole life is dependent on God, but it also uses feminine…

Worst. Christian. EVER.

August 18, 2010
People Praying

I’ve recently (as in, within the last 24 hours) discovered Stuff Christians Like, a website that aims to both poke fun at Christian clichés and aks- do the clichés get in the way of worship? Being me, I decided to quickly read through as many of the archived 500 posts as seemed appropriate to my life. Oddly enough, it was significantly easier for me to find out that I am a huge cliché of a white person according to Stuff…

Rock me, sexy Bible

August 17, 2010

It’s no secret that I use StumbleUpon to find the majority of my blog content. And StumbleUpon usually does me a great service by providing me with many thought-provoking websites and articles. And then I get this. I love whoever submitted this verse, and this verse alone, to StumbleUpon: 20 There she lusted after her lovers, whose genitals were like those of donkeys and whose emission was like that of horses. Ezekiel 23:20 Sexy! (p.s. I Google image searched “bestiality”…
