Flash Flood Warning

I have nothing, or rather, very little.

I have drank just a wee bit much lately, (really?) and then commenced to Drunk Facebook, which, in some ways, is much better than Drunk Dialing, but still. My inhibitions get thrown out the window and my nontheistic, my non-tolerant self, gets pulled to the forefront and I end up starting groups and replying to offensive posts in offensive ways. Then I wake up the next day and worry that I have pissed off dear friends and new friends.

I delete what I can.

I don't want to piss off people, but even my sober self gets tired of the rampant christianity that is out there. And the fact that they don't worry, or care, about mysensibilities at all. Sigh. If my friends want to believe in invisible entities, should I sit by quietly when they ask for prayers, or worse, spend bandwidth praising Jesus? Should I just not read and delete? I don't know. I am normally not combative.

(for example:for ALL MY FRIENDS I WOULD LIKE TO SAY THANKS FOR ALL YOUR PRAYERS OUR SON DILLAN CRASHED HIS CAR EARLY THIS MORNING AROUND 430 ON WESTPORT ROAD. THE CAR IS A LOSS BUT GOD WAS WITH DILLAN AN NOW WE HAVE HIM HOME AFTER 6 HOURS IN THE ER HE IS OK JUST BRUISES AND A CUT ON HIS NECK THE AIR BAG AND SEAT BELT ALONG WITH JESUS PROTECTED HIM.)

Airbags and seatbelts and a good ER team are what worked. Hope he wasn't out drunk at 4:30 in the morning. I don't think Jesus really gives a crap.

Raining lots this weekend. Flooding everywhere. Livestock is drenched, but fine, and this is better than just-above zero temperatures most any day. Sweetie has made a second attempt to get into Louisville to work. Early today, all the roads around were flooded and he returned home to sleep a few more sweet hours. Haven't heard from him, so I am assuming all is well.

This sort of stuff is why I *have* a facebook page but don't actually "facebook" (the verb).. I just check in there once a week or so to see if my friends posted anything interesting.

Ok. Wait. Must. Delurk.
*I* had a car accident, was trapped in the car for 2 hours before anyone saw me, broke many parts of my body including losing an entire leg, and was in the hospital for 6 weeks. I now FINALLY GET IT! It's because I was raised jewish and now practice buddhism!!
(oh wait maybe I only survived at all because word got out to some church going friends...they all told me later they prayed for me...hmm. Perhaps I should reconsider my belief system)
ROTFLMAO

Facebook THAT.

Yeah. This is why I tend to avoid places where I have to read things like that, and/or quietly stop when they do come up. Maybe that's cowardice, but there it is...

There's been a lot of fuss here about a Christian couple who run a bed-and-breakfast and refused to allow a gay couple to stay. What puzzle me is, I thought Christians were meant to be better than the rest of us, more generous and more charitable. Does this mean that they're not?

Ah Facebook. Mine is dormant because of other than religious folk and mostly religious folk are not even living up to what they take communion... nice word, communion, for.

They forget about the cautionary tale of the "Eye of the needle" and the admonition to "be thee perfect, even as your Father in Heaven is perfect," and here Jesus was speaking of perfect, unconditional love. For everyone.

Christians can love money and fame just as greedily as anyone else and still think that's how they are wending their way into a perfect afterlife. The gentlest of souls who never tells anyone else how to live is the one that they should be learning from "by example." Think of the gentleness and kindness that was the calling. Money doesn't even speak in a human voice. *cue music*.."Who do you love?"

How's that for a late night medicated rant!? I am going to hate myself in the morning! hehe
