In the Garden of Eden, God allegedly gave Adam & Eve the choice to taste the forbidden fruit. So why wouldn’t he also give us the right to do what we want with our bodies?
I walked past a planned parenthood today and saw 3 picketers whose signs expressed, what they presumed, is God’s disdain for their business practices. My reasons for not debating the picketers themselves are two-fold: a, they have every right to be there and b, they are fucking insane.
In order to seek change rather, the conversation should be with those who are incorrectly translating that book of stories and lessons, aka the Bible.
Spreckled throughout that book are many examples of how God has “gifted” us with free will. Let’s suppose for the sake of this blog that the stories are true…ehem…then when it comes to the topic of Abortion, wouldn’t it make logical sense that Christians would be Pro-Choice? Leaving the personal choice, for the “Christian” to walk in the path of God and oppose evil by choosing to maintain the pregnancy. Rather than a forced decision by the community?
Translation and teachings of the Bible have become less about creating good citizens and more about manipulation and control over the weak for financial gain. I find Christianity, as an organized religion, similar to the likes of Communism. On paper, it is fair and reasonable, but when executed, far too many cases of operator error.Leave A Comment »
Marriage as a construct, is believed to have originated from a religious foundation with monogamy being one of the core values…although historically, or rather biblically, not one notable figurehead in the number one selling book has been reported as monogamous. Take Solomon for example…he not only had 700 documented wives, but he also kept over 300 concubines. Most men have a hard time satisfying a single woman, so imagine how dissatisfied all of those women probably were both emotionally and sexually. Resulting in an unstable cocktail of a high rate of marital failure, confusion and general loss of hope. Making me believe it might be time to review how necessary it is to sign your single life away on the dotted line.
We live in a time where human beings battle their wiring against the modern emotional and digital age. An age which doesn’t allow for monogamous relationships to even be sustainable. Men biologically are wired to provide, protect and produce, women are wired to make babies, nurture, and be dependent on antidepressants. A foundation fighting against the juxtaposed, ego-driven, social media culture, a culture where expression of emotions, flashing material objects like unnecessary eyewear to increase ones appeal. And BECAUSE this ultimately leaves people unfulfilled, masses have turned to validation sought out in an adulterous, physical manner.
Then there is society’s issue with the legalization and recognition of same-sex marriage. It holds a very essential weight in a conglomeration of power trip issues over bedroom antics and not love. So, what do we do to resolve this issue? Should we redefine marriage, giving it a whole new title? Lady slavery was the original choice, but it needs to be more gender neutral, so maybe we should just consider calling it condemnation? I believe it better suits what you are signing up for, but it’s definitely going to change the ratings of the Bachelor.
