A lot of southern states keep trying to adopt the display of the Ten Commandments in public arenas, including state buildings and school classrooms. Of course, backlash follows, and rightfully so.
This goes against the First Amendment, but so should placing your hand on the good book of rape and murder before swearing an oath in court.
In any event, there are many more disturbing commandments in the bible. I plopped five of them into a fun video, but I have to point out the most screaming hypocrisy.
Religious institutions, especially Catholicism, have not been kind to women. Nuns are very much on the decline because they weren’t taken care of as well as the men. Women also complain that the opportunity for rising up in the ranks is poor.
Having women in charge might fix a whole lotta messes.
Yet, it is beyond me why women would want to claw their way to the top of an organization that views them with less regard, is overly concerned with their vaginas, extols money, and molests children.
As per my last blog, I promised my creative efforts improved when it came to video making.
Since I am making a comedic stab at the bible, I would like to quote from my book at the end of chapter one, which is called Nudity and Incest. This not only shows the humor you are in for, but the not so one-sided approach I took upon representing the juiciest tidbits regarding sexual relations in the bible.
Since the creation of man, there have been issues involving nudity, gender roles, sex, murder, incest, genocide, and drunkenness, which unfolded in that order. All we really know, and a sound argument against evolution, is that not much has changed.
Hopefully this is the closest I will ever come to having this type of footage available online. My book, Sex in the Name of God, is complete and available for purchase.
After looking into some options, I felt an explainer video was needed. People need to understand this book covers real bible passages in a humorous fashion, because scripture is often ridiculous when it comes to the subject of sex and human relations.
Off to a cheapo website I went looking for entrepreneurs. After contacting a few folks who said, oh hell no, I posted an inquiry. Out of the responses, I purchased several, knowing full well my money might go down the toilet.
Religion intrigues me because a small group of people who follow a leader, and ascribe to certain practices, is often viewed as a cult. Add in millions of people and suddenly this is a norm.
I had never read the bible before. Besides wanting to know what people were really following, I was curious to learn about the basics. How would sex and politics be treated within a religious guideline? Well, I found out.
The bible: Wow. It’s disturbing.
Putting all murder and mayhem aside, I can now say that if you like sex, and lots of it, then the bible is for you. There was more than enough material to write a book about the juiciest parts; a whooping 197 pages.
I read A Brief History of Time many years ago and loved it. Making physics make sense to the layperson isn’t easy, and it was a fascinating read.
After his passing, I very much enjoyed the tidbit on Stephen Hawking and paradoxes by Michael Guillen.
This amazing scientist certainly was a paradox. He lived most of his life with a severe disability, was incredibly smart, but he was also famous for being smart.
What is very remarkable about Hawking was his celebrity-type status. I have seen footage of him scooting around in his wheelchair with throngs of paparazzi. You just don’t see that outside of celebrities and politicians. We’re talking Michael Jackson and Lady Diana crowds.
State Representative Jessica Farrar has introduced a bill for Texas legislation making male masturbation illegal, as every single sperm is a potential child.
True that. And, you go, girl.
Abortion is a controversial subject. The people are evenly divided.
As a man, I can’t entirely comment on the female perspective: the circumstances, the decision, the how and why.
For the con, I have seen abortion animations where a baby is pulled apart limb by limb. It is disturbing.
For the pro. I don’t believe a woman’s decision should be subjected to oversight by a legal system, including professional opinions or otherwise.
The stages of grief: Anger, denial, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
I want to lash out in anger, but where?
I’m angry about people politicizing the issue. Democrats are blaming Republicans and making unbelievably incendiary comments that are painfully hypocritical. I could go on and on and make some great points specifically to the likes of Hayley Geftman-Gold who is now fired. But I really have one thing to say, because I’m angry.
F**k you and your kind.
I am also angry with the insane shooter. I want revenge and justice, both of which can’t be found with a dead guy.
Scientology is all kinds of weird. It is based on a lying, wife-beating, mad-man’s sci-fi delusions of grandeur. We’re talking L. Ron Hubbard and Dianetics. Watch the movie Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief. If you are interested in expelling aliens from your body, or if you would like pictures of Tom Cruise all around your home to worship as if he were the Supreme Leader of North Korea, then this is the cult for you.
Scientology claims they are a religion. They fought and won religious exemption status from the IRS by filing thousands of lawsuits. Yes, they actually took on the IRS and won. In return, as promised, the lawsuits were withdrawn.
