Isn’t it nice how people twist their religious scripture to suit their weds but when it’s used against them it’s suddenly not okay
I talked to a monk about this quote once (we have mutual friends, and he came to a New Year’s Eve party at my shared art studio). He said this isn’t even talking about homosexuality. That the bible never actually says homosexuality is wrong. What that passage means is this:
Women were treated as subservient and it that you shouldn’t treat other men as subservient, like they are beneath you. It is not talking about homosexuality. If it was, it would say it outright since the bible lists other things outright.
I take the word of a monk who have studied the bible extensively more than a self proclaimed Christian.
I’m a Christian and I approve this message.
A skeleton of a mother, and her baby, who both died during her pregnancy.
this is so fucking cool
how on earth is this cool this is literally the remains of a mother and a child she never even got to see. have some respect smh
its cool because its an intact skeleton within an intact skeleton. sad sure, but still cool, get off the pedestal.
This is cool in a gross way. But this isn’t sad at all. Death is normal, for all you know the mom could have been a heroine addict and the baby the next Hitler. Don’t add emotional emphasis to everything.
This is so cool
Italian Journalist Uses Tiny Rainbow Heart To Make A Big Gesture. And, In Turn, Defy Russian Anti-Gay Law
Whenever I read anything about LGBT rights in Russia, it just seems to get more and more chilling. The struggles LGBT Russians are facing right now are horrendous. It’s easy to forget this - or dig your head in the sand - if you live in a nation where LGBT people are protected by the law.
So, I continue to applaud the bravery of LGBT folks and their allies who live and travel to Russia and fearlessly put their neck on the line by trying to encourage some dialogue around LGBT issues. Some months ago, you may remember actress Tilda Swinton posing with a rainbow flag outside the Kremlin in Russia. Well, her brave gesture seems to have inspired Italian journalist Enrico Procentese, who took to the streets of Moscow’s Red Square to hold up his own banner, stating “love is love”.
The tiny little rainbow heart dotting the ‘i’ in ‘is’ was enough for him to be confronted by police and told to remove the sign. Ironic considering the multi-coloured palace behind him (which is easily the campest castle I’ve ever seen).
