Venting Session #1

So, I just need to vent this really quick because it really really makes me angry...

 

My sister and I are home alone earlier today when all of a sudden a man neither of us know rings the doorbell. I was on my way to answer the door when he just tries to walk into our house--luckily the door was locked. I then made the decision that I wasn't going to open the door to a stranger who thought he could just walk into my house univited. He then stood there for a little while, rang…

The Book of Solicitation

So, I'm watching The 19th Wife on LMN--a movie with murder and Mormons--when the doorbell rings and a couple of young Jehovah's Witness bible thumpers want to read me some scripture and give me a booklet. This isn't the first time this group has visited my house, but it was the first time I was home alone and the one to answer the door. As soon as I knew what was about to happen I regretted my decision to answer the door immediately. They were very young--I'm 22 and they were noticeably…

Ann Coulter Should Take Her Own Advice

 

 

While discussing the individual mandate in the new health care reform, Ann Coulter claimed that not only is the mandate unconstitutional but Republicans should come out and impose a mandate that all citizens should be forced to buy a gun and a bible and that "there's a lot more evidence that owning a gun and a Bible is better for society than owning health Insurance."

 

Where to start...

 

Ok, first off, no.…

The WAR on CHRISTmas!

I'm so sick of hearing about "the war on christmas" and seeing any

non-christian (or anyone willing to stand up for any non-christian)

being vilified in the news. Tonight there was a segment on one of my local news affiliates (WTAE Pittsburgh) about a nativity scene being moved from in front of the borough building in a local town after one woman (bravely) wrote in and asked that it be moved. It was moved a whole 20 yards from it's original… Continue

Thank God for Allowing Me to Send Another Tweet

Because I have a Twitter and a Facebook and am connected with those who are religious, I constantly see posts that follow this theme: "Thank god for allowing me to see another day."



After my initial reaction of a slight chuckle of amusement and I really start to think about the "rationale" behind these posts, I get really annoyed. How arrogant do you have to be to thank god for allowing you to live another day? Like he personally goes through a… Continue
