38 “You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’[a]39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also.40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well.41 If anyone forces you to go one mile, go with them two miles.42 Give to the one who asks you, and do not turn away from the one who wants to borrow from you.
I saw this anonymous person on someone's page on tumblr. They were talking about gay marriage. This is what she said, "I went to church with my family tonight...pastor: now according to a few passages in the bible, homosexuality is a sin. Couple of older males in the audience: amen! Pastor : now wait, I'm not finished. You know what else the bible defines as a sin? Divorce. -uncomfortable silence- pastor: there are countless passages that talk about how divorce is wrong and that there are consequences to getting a divorce. Such as the wife being stoned. Yet i witnessed a divorce this morning. I gotta tell you, it was heartbreaking, but I definitely didn't attempt to throw rocks at the wife. Even though she was the one who filed the divorce. We choose to overlook the consequences of divorce because time has proven that they are inhumane and cruel. The bible doesn't say any consequences of the homosexual lifestyle. Yet we seem to be spearheading a campaign to ruin the lives of people we don't know. The bible states to love thy neighbor. That's it. There's no other restrictions to that passage. So we as a church family have to support equality with a smile on our face.
So today at lunch my friends and I were talking about stupid One Direction fanfics. Me: There are all of those stupid fanfics that start in Starbucks and you spill coffee on them then they deside to take you home and you fall in love and all that jazz. Then you end up getting married. My friend: Or they just randomly come up to you because you're so beautiful so they just take you home and you fall in love. Me: Obviously these are not realistic because if I ever saw the boys in public they wouldn't come up and tell me I'm beautiful. They would grab a stick and poke me wth it and be wondering what kind of creature I am.
If bombs and weapons didn’t exist this wouldn’t happen. Like just think, if no one owned bombs or weapons they couldn’t hurt anyone. If no one was hurt no one would think oh we have to hurt them back. And you know how much money we have to help people instead of hurting them. With that weapon money we could end world hunger. We could save enough money to end slavery. We could do enough research to cure cancer! I just…
To This Day by Shane Koyczan When I was a kid I used to think that pork chops and karate chops were the same thing I thought they were both pork chops and because my grandmother thought it was cute and because they were my favourite she let me keep doing it not really a big deal one day before I realized fat kids are not designed to climb trees I fell out of a tree and bruised the right side of my body I didn’t want to tell my grandmother about it because I was afraid I’d get in trouble for playing somewhere that I shouldn’t have been a few days later the gym teacher noticed the bruise and I got sent to the principal’s office from there I was sent to another small room with a really nice lady who asked me all kinds of questions about my life at home I saw no reason to lie as far as I was concerned life was pretty good I told her “whenever I’m sad my grandmother gives me karate chops” this led to a full scale investigation and I was removed from the house for three days until they finally decided to ask how I got the bruises news of this silly little story quickly spread through the school and I earned my first nickname pork chop to this day I hate pork chops I’m not the only kid who grew up this way surrounded by people who used to say that rhyme about sticks and stones as if broken bones hurt more than the names we got called and we got called them all so we grew up believing no one would ever fall in love with us that we’d be lonely forever that we’d never meet someone to make us feel like the sun was something they built for us in their tool shed so broken heart strings bled the blues as we tried to empty ourselves so we would feel nothing don’t tell me that hurts less than a broken bone that an ingrown life is something surgeons can cut away that there’s no way for it to metastasize it does she was eight years old our first day of grade three when she got called ugly we both got moved to the back of the class so we would stop get bombarded by spit balls but the school halls were a battleground where we found ourselves outnumbered day after wretched day we used to stay inside for recess because outside was worse outside we’d have to rehearse running away or learn to stay still like statues giving no clues that we were there in grade five they taped a sign to her desk that read beware of dog to this day despite a loving husband she doesn’t think she’s beautiful because of a birthmark that takes up a little less than half of her face kids used to say she looks like a wrong answer that someone tried to erase but couldn’t quite get the job done and they’ll never understand that she’s raising two kids whose definition of beauty begins with the word mom because they see her heart before they see her skin that she’s only ever always been amazing (part one)
In comm. arts we are doing a research project on the Holocaust. We get to pick what we are doing, but it has to be Holocaust related. I chose Auschwitz (a concentration camp). I was done with all of my research so I was just going to watch videos about survivors of Auschwitz. I found this video so i started watching it to waste time. The video was about a man who found his love in Auschwitz. He met her in the concentration camp! They both ended up surviving, and they got married! After watching this video I realized anything can happen. Like a great thing can happen from something really bad. You just have to look at the plus things of situations.
