“The institution of marriage is not under attack as a result of the President’s words. Marriage was under attack years ago by men who viewed women as property and children as trophies of sexual prowess. Marriage is under attack by low wages, high incarceration, unfair tax policy, unemployment, and lack of education. Marriage is under attack by clergy who proclaim monogamy yet think nothing of stepping outside the bonds of marriage to have multiple affairs with “preaching groupies.”—
Rev. Otis Moss III, Senior Pastor of Trinity United Church of Christ (via touchoftea)
Can I get a pastor around here that speaks this truth?
“I have nothing against film, but “Friday Night Lights” is the kind of show that makes me glad to be a television critic. Over five seasons, we got to know the residents of Dillon so deeply and so well that saying goodbye to this show inevitably led to tears and lingering homesickness. We can feel homesick for a place that never existed because five seasons was long enough to make that place seem absolutely real. The “FNL” writers, cast, directors and production crew made Dillon real, as real as “The Shield’s” Barn, as real as Tony Soprano’s McMansion, as real as Pawnee’s City Hall. We shed tears with the residents of Dillon, we shared in their triumphs, we knew their hopes and dreams and we got glimpses of the darker corners of their hearts. “FNL” made us better for having known these people. Full hearts.”—
An informant in contact with Libya 360° has confirmed that the Lord’s Resistance Army leader, Joseph Kony, died two years ago. He was captured during an…
reason number 700 why I have issues with the whole Kony 2012 bull. NO ONE DID THEIR RESEARCH! yet again it’s just a bunch of people letting one person tell them whats up so they can in turn lord it over everyone by “being aware” and hip and tell them whats up. In reality, people probably don’t know whats actually going on, or better yet how the war was even started there. I wish to God people wouldn’t get so up in arms about this shit without researching. To ever change anything in this world we need to attempt to see and understand both sides, that is the only reconciliation can be made. Rebel armies generally have a reason for doing what they do. Peace agreements cannot be reached until we realize all sides have been hurt, and all sides are human. And I’m just going to keep on going. I guess what I have to say is if you are going to “be aware” please do so with true knowledge to back it up and grace and humility.
“Here I love you.
In the dark pines the wind disentangles itself.
The moon glows like phosphorous on the vagrant waters.
Days, all one kind, go chasing each other.
The snow unfurls in dancing figures.
A silver gull slips down from the west.
Sometimes a sail. High, high stars.
Oh the black cross of a ship.
Sometimes I get up early and even my soul is wet.
Far away the sea sounds and resounds.
This is a port.
Here I love you.
Here I love you and the horizon hides you in vain.
I love you still among these cold things.
Sometimes my kisses go on those heavy vessels
that cross the sea towards no arrival.
I see myself forgotten like those old anchors.
The piers sadden when the afternoon moors there.
My life grows tired, hungry to no purpose.
I love what I do not have. You are so far.
My loathing wrestles with the slow twilights.
But night comes and starts to sing to me.
The moon turns its clockwork dream.
The biggest stars look at me with your eyes.
And as I love you, the pines in the wind
want to sing your name with their leaves of wire
“Give all of us gathered here tonight the strength to remember that life is so very fragile. We are all vulnerable, and we will all, at some point in our lives… fall. We will all fall. We must carry this in our hearts… that what we have is special. That it can be taken from us, and when it is taken from us, we will be tested. We will be tested to our very souls. We will now all be tested. It is these times, it is this pain, that allows us to look inside ourselves.”—
