Anti-abortion killer executed in Florida; “I expect a great reward in heaven,” he said in an interview Tuesday, during which he was cheerful, often smiling. “I am looking forward to glory.”

What a fucking dink. I mean really. I'll kill you and God will reward me for killing you because I stopped you from... killing? Fuck off, just FUCK OFF!! And a great big fuck off to The Army Of God for glorifying this asshole and making a tribute site in his honor (like he had any) and for the other bullshit on that site.

Again, to all of you Pro-Life women: If you would never have an abortion, that's great - you made a choice and I respect that. It's your body, you do what you want. That is the entire point of the Pro-Choice movement. To all you Pro-Life men: The next time YOU get cramps, I will personally buy you the Midol. Go piss up a rope, you stupid fucktards, the lot of you. Being male and Pro-Life automatically makes you an idiot. To heterosexuals everywhere: If you would use effective birth control every time you screwed, abortion would usually only be an issue in extreme cases. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your own body, ladies. Don't expect that he's thinking about responsibility, a stiff one has no conscience.

There is an article on Fox News about "Christian Feminism" that is worth the read, but leaves you thinking that it is an absurd notion altogether - which clearly it is. Christianity is inherently sexist, I have found sexist assertions throughout both old and new testaments. The idea that you could assert your feminine power and maintain it was in the name of being a Christian is ludicrous. Then they bring up Margaret Sanger and link her (yet again) to the utter bullshit about her being a racist and that was the whole reason why she worked so hard for reproductive freedom. You can be a Christian and you can be a feminist, but you cannot be both at the same time without being a walking, hypocritical contradiction. Oddly enough, those ideals are all about personal choice as well. Go figure.

I feel tons better today, I slept REALLY good last night, the antibiotics are finally kicking in and I'm in better spirits as well. Who know all it would take is amoxicillin and the execution of a tard to do the trick!

i dont know how i feel about christian feminists. granted i am a Christian, yet i also call myself a feminist- i think i like to keep the two seperated...*shrugs* i dont know...

but i do know that mean isn't being glorfied in heaven...he's lucky if he got in...
4th-Sep-2003 06:54 am (UTC) - Re: yeah
Kelly, it is really impossible to keep those two things separated. One has to compromise the other in order for either one to be plausible. You can't be "kind of" Christian and "sort of" feminist, you know what I mean? Not to say that you cannot believe in God and be a feminist at the same time, but Christian principles are VERY sexist. Christianity historically does not favor women and women's rights. It's a very oppressive world, isn't it!

4th-Sep-2003 07:16 am (UTC) - Re: yeah
yeah but thats also like saying you can't be a boy and be feminist when i believe you in fact can be. it depends on a bunch of shit because i think that my feminism comes from the Bible in the principle that "God created all equally" and what not...because if people would actually read it they'd see the verse about "husbands and wives" says the same think about husbands being submissive as well...preachers love to manipulate the word...but anyways since there are all types of feminisms i think im good for now besides im still young and still forming opinions which are subject to change at any moment....

especially if i find out what the SBC had to say abotu this cock dying. :)
4th-Sep-2003 09:25 am (UTC) - Let me clarify my earlier statements
I do agree that you can be both a Christian and a feminist in the sense that Christianity is not a religion but instead an ideal, what I meant was I don't see how one can be a Southern Baptist and be a feminist. The SBC voted against ordaining women, are rabidly homophobic and sexist, and that at best is enough reason. That's the point I should have made originally. Sorry for not being clearer!
4th-Sep-2003 09:39 am (UTC) - Re: Let me clarify my earlier statements
well yeah the SBC has alot and i do mean alot i disagree with but so do other denominations- besides lately i have a friend who wants me to be a quacker. im still young and impressionable in some ways. who knows. even if i'm not a SB i'll still maintain that I am a Christian who upholds alot of the ideas in feminism- we talk alot about this stuff in my Feminist Theory Film class and stuff. Its great to help people like me figure out stuff. But yeah I totally understand your point. And damiens- he pretty much describes how i feel about things. I'm simply put a Christian who doesn't agree with how things are percieved via the Bible in concern with women. I'm just rambling now because i jsut had a WILD encounter with an ex-friend of mine who is a total ass and I'm trying to calm myself down :)
4th-Sep-2003 10:49 am (UTC) - Re: Let me clarify my earlier statements
I'm still not sure you are seeing my point, but I really can't describe it very well in this medium. Take me for example. Hypothetically speaking, I agree and follow a lot of the 'rules and regulations' of your typical religion. Look at the Ten Commandments. I don't believe in killing (Thou shalt not kill). I don't believe in adultery, lieing (though to a small degree, sometimes it's necessary), stealing, etc. So by believing and upholding some of these beliefs and values I could technically be described as 'sort of Christian' because these are generally considered 'good Christian values'. In fact, were it not for the whole believing in god thing, trying to recruit others thing, giving money to a non-profit organization thing, I might in fact BE a Christian. After all there are a lot of good things that church organizations do (feed the hungry, women's shelters, parenting classes, etc). Keep in mind that I'm anti-organized religion. I feel like if you believe in god, that's great, for you. I don't think it's necessary to attend church en masse just to worship your deity. But I'm getting off the point here.

To take your definition of being a Christian and apply it to society as a whole would mean that a Christian is something akin to Santa Clause. Neither really exists. There's no such thing as a pure Christian, in my book. Nobody is perfect. Anyone that says they adhere completely to all the rules of the bible and Christianity is lieing, which is a sin in itself. (Kind of a catch-22. Damned if you do, damned if you don't.)

This is why I believe in the theory of grayness. No one thing is either black or white. Nobody is either one thing or another. In fact, I think the idea of Christianity in and of itself is merely a model that everyone works toward being. Nobody can ever actually get there, because the model is unreasonably perfect. To achieve the model completely would be to BE god himself. A blasphemous thought in itself! ::chuckle:: That's really all religion is, when you think about it. A set of rules and goals that guide the believer toward becoming as much like it's 'ultimate model' as possible. Kind of sick sounding when I say it, for I'm totally against conforming to the model. I celebrate my diversity as a strength as I feel like everyone should. The world would be pretty dull if we were all perfect and the same.

Anyway, I hope some of what I've tried to explain here makes sense... It's all my opinion. Take it for what it is... and feel free to disagree! I'll just beat it into you later... (Just kidding! ::gay man noise::)

4th-Sep-2003 07:35 am (UTC) - Re: yeah
I disagree. I think you 'can' be sort of Christian and sort of feminist. Just like you can be kinda Democratic and sorta Republican. It means you subscribe to some of the values and beliefs of that particular sect, but not all of them. I don't think the world we live in can be described in an all or nothing point of view. Despite some people's avid disapproval, there are always some grey areas involved.
