I shouldn’t even think about posting when I’m in this frame of mind. 1) I have too many things swirling in my head to even THINK, let alone compose coherent thought. 2) I’m too angry and irritated because of different parts of the swirling eddy of my thoughts.
#1: Snide comments about Michael Jackson.
First off, I’m not really a fan. I never owned Thriller, and honestly I get annoyed everytime the video is named greatest video of all time. Mostly just because I’m sick of it. The man could sing. The man could dance. He was an exceptional entertainer. He brought a lot of music into the world, and I think he did a lot of good in the world.
Was he a child molestor? He was acquitted of all charges. I don’t know. I do know that there are some people who got lots of money and publicity just for raising the question. Was he jacked up? duh. Was he creepy and strange? obviously. He also lived his ENTIRE life outside any kind of range of normalcy and most, if not all of that circumstance was beyond his choosing or control. How could you expect him to not be at least creepy and strange? Does that make him a monster? Instead of your conviction that he’s a child molestor (since, obviously you have inside info that the jury didn’t), or comments about his misguided beliefs (Jehovah’s Witness and or Islam) and condemnation and declaration of where he must be right now (as if it were your place to decide), maybe you should take a sec to repent of your own self-righteousnees and judgement and the putrid, disgusting, ugly glee at the demise of a severely broken human being who is just as much a child of God/Allah/Jehovah as you are.
#2: “Gayby Boom: Children of Gay couples speak out” (click title to follow link)
Just found this article. Got me all fired up about Arkansas’s prohibition of unmarried cohabitating couples from adopting or caring for foster children. I know it was passed like 9 months ago, but it still pisses me off. Wouldn’t it be best if orphans/foster children were raised by heterosexual, married couples? Well, maybe. I know a lot of hetero/married couples that suck at being married and suck at raising kids. It’s not difficult to imagine children would be better off with a loving homosexual couple. And it’s just plain stupid to suggest children would be better off in an orphanage than with a loving family whatever the gender/makeup/orientation.
God, save us from our pride. Save us from our ugly self-righteousness. Teach us to love. And for those who have it all figured out (except the loving part) at least shut them up so they stop representing you in such a horrific way.
