you know, i’ve gotten a little bit annoyed with this, so i thought i better say something.
i just hate how catholicism or christianity in general has become the go to place to hate on or make a joke out of.
i personally really can take a joke; i am the innapropriate joke logbook, but really, sometimes it really is just not appropriate.
stuff like this, and especially this (which made me a bit ill tbqh) i understand are supposed to be a bit of a joke but its honestly just rude. its picking the shit out of something that people have died for. its a religion, a faith, something that may be true or may be not. im not here to convince or convert or finger point, but im just saying, have some respect, please. as a catholic-
oh wait, i bet everyone is thinking, shes a catholic so of course she is being a stuck up pain in the ass, whining over a little joke. tbh, im not really that devout. i rarely go to church, and i have sworn and done mean things before in my life. but yes, religion has a place in my life, excuse me for having an opinion because some of you think i might be a bit biased.
-anyway, regardless whether i am a catholic, a muslim, a hindu, or a buddhist, i would be defending any faith that was copping this kind of ridicule from people who are honestly better than that. everything and everyone deserves some respect, especially considering those who thoughtlessly do these things probably do not realise that they are making absolute fools out of those who believe in any sort of religion.
it is not right. it is hurtful, and heartbreaking.
my grandmother who is getting towards the end of her life, prays so often she sometimes forgets she has done it before, simply because she wants some relief or some love or even some mercy from her God. is that really so funny? a woman who cries because she loves a deity who she believes tried to save us all, who feels loved by someone who can help, i really dont think thats funny. i think its heartbreaking.
please, please at least have some thought before you try and be funny. no ones beliefs deserve that, never ever. have some respect for what other people think/believe in.
look at my awful tan line
The real meaning of “I’m not like the other girls” is, I think, “I’m not the media’s image of what girls should be.” Well, very, very few of us are. Pop culture wants to tell us that we’re all shallow, backstabbing, appearance-obsessed shopaholics without a thought in our heads beyond cute boys and cuter handbags. It’s a lie – a flat-out lie – and we need to recognize it and say so instead of accepting that judgment as true for other girls, but not for you.” —
Excellent article. I always end up thinking this when I see reblogs like that. Female competition is a horrible, poisonous thing (that I’ve only recently gotten over engaging in, and I am much happier for it).
