Okay, do yourself a favor and don’t ever rent Incredible Creatures That Defy Evolution. While he animals were interesting, which was the point of me watching this piece of crap, I find it hard to believe that in a universe so expansive and diverse that some higher being chose to construct a solitary planet to populate with living organisms. Is God or whoever it is who supposidly made the earth just getting his jollies out by creating creatures he thinks won’t stand a chance? Really? What kind of sadistic God is that?

Point of fact, if believers of Creationism in it’s various forms believe this crap, that’s fine, let them waste their time – but why, if they have such strong convictions, do they feel the need to try their damndest to find scientific proof then stick it in a DVD? And P.S. – Why bother going the scientific route at all if they obviously refuse to believe in hard science by calling evolution (something that makes a hell of a lot more sense than a sky creator with a lot of time on his hands) a myth when they don’t have any real proof? Isn’t that a bit hypocritical?

At any rate, this one’s really only worth the rental if you burn Dixie Chicks albums or are into weird animals. The animals are cool and interesting. This is one to watch with the sound off.

Hope everyone had a great holiday season, I’ve still got 6 pagan holidays, New Years and Chinese New Year to look forward to so I’m still truckin’, lol. The nice thing about being a heathen, well amongst other nice things, is that we really never run out of holidays and so I can buy stupid things I don’t need ( hah, as if I don’t need the entire Enchanted Worlds collection! :P ) and call them holiday purchases, lol. I seriously need to make more cash, though, I rarely actually buy anything, so everything I DO buy I feel bad for buying, but since it’s the holidays I tried to put that out of my mind so I could indulge in presents for friends and family.

I may be working in the capital, though, come this spring or summer. They have an assistant job open that pays upwards of 30 large a year, maybe 35 depending on who, exactly, I work for. Either way it’s over triple what I make now, for less work, and I’ve practically been promised the job so, it’s just a matter of transportation.

Oh, funny. I’m having a silly, funny good time, lol. First of all I’ve got what the average Xtian would call ‘Devil Music’ playing in my headphones – a traditional Hawaiian song, very pretty – and secondly I’ve got yet another thing to bitch about, lol.

It’s not even a gripe, so ‘bitch’ is the wrong word, more like rant about something hilarious – and that hilarious thing is the W.O.S., which stands for War On Solstice. It could just as easily have been a war on Halloween, since it’s just as funny. Josh, Nan and Jon have decided to ( and rightly so ) ‘fight back’ against the Christians stealing our holidays. Not only do they steal them, but they later claim that we’re corrupting our own holidays but celebrating them the way they’re meant to be celebrated. Apparently we’re somehow waging war on them by not bowing down and kissing their asses.

An example of this is the fact that they can not give a $h1t about your personal beliefs or feelings with a “Merry Christmas” around this time of year, and let’s be honest Pagans, Jews, Muslims, Aethiests, Agnostics and Heathans – we eat it, don’t we? We just let it go, for the most part. Why? Because we know there’s room for everyone, even if some Aethiests, Heathans and Muslims can’t get that through their head ( you know who you are ). There are more of us just chewing it than are making a stink about it, and now I’m starting to regret my part in that fiasco.

You see, for years and years when someone would say “Merry Christmas” to me, even though I celebrate Solstice – one of the many Pagan traditions from which Christmas has it’s origin – I’d return the sentiment with a “Merry Christmas” right back to them. Why? Because it’s not worth fighting about. After all, the point is still the same, right? I hope you have a wonderful holiday this time of year is how I’d chosen, in the past, to take it. I didn’t really realize that “Merry Christmas” is almost literally a smirk and a rude, patronizing pat on the head from a dominatrix.

Did I just lose you? Let me explain. When someone says “Merry Christmas” to you, they assume that you’ll say it back because there’s no chance that you don’t agree with their beliefs. How do you find out if this is true? The next time someone wishes you a “Merry Christmas”, answer back – wish them “Happy Holidays”. Nothing makes a God fearing W.A.S.P. madder faster than someone who doesn’t fall in line. No, no, Christians don’t just want you to wish them peace on earth and good will towards men – they want you to cower.

This may sound like a big leap to you, and if it does you’ve probably got a Bible in your bedroom. I’m not saying that’s bad, what I am saying is that you don’t understand – and you never will. You aren’t on this side of the black leather cover, you don’t realize what it’s like for those of us trying to keep a foothold in a world that doesn’t want us. And that’s ridiculous because, and let me be perfectly clear about this so there’s no misunderstanding, we were here first – oh yes, first – and most everything you believe is based on what you took from us. Not just pagans, in fact the great majority of your beliefs come right from Judaism. I don’t get how you can think you’re God’s chosen people when he most clearly states that the chosen are Jews – and he does so often. Whatever, what you believe isn’t important to this story, it’s how you act that’s the problem.

Is it so hard to just take that “Happy Holidays” as the well wish it’s meant to be? Why do we have to celebrate only Christmas? Jesus wasn’t even born in December, for Odin’s sake! And if you do a little research – which I know is sort of anti Christian – you’d find out pretty quickly how Christmas came to be on December 25.

While I dislike Christians, I’ve got no beef with Jesus ( I’m not going to correct the name, I’ll just leave it, lol ). I’m not going to pretend he was king of close-up magic, or that he could bend spoons with his mind or anything, but he’s your main man and you should definately get to celebrate his birth whenever you see fit – but, honey, we had dibs so long ago that your Bible claims you weren’t even created yet, so take the hint and let us have our holidays, too, okay? And that goes for Halloween ( Samhain ) and every other holiday you don’t won’t stand for – well, stand for it, because there are a lot of us and we’ve got every right to be here.

So, I’m joining the fight against the War On Solstice officially, woo hoo! Lol.

Unless you’ve been living in a shoe for the last three years, and your abundance of children made paying attention to the media impossible, because frankly, with that many children you wouldn’t know what to do, then you’ve probably heard that the amazing, sacred and epic poem of Beowulf has been adapted to the big screen.

When I first heard about this, I was, as I always am, a giant angrypants. See Beowulf was my first access to the Viking world, even though it’s entirely fabricated, but it introduced me to a lot of things that eventually ended up in my study and adoption of Asatru, although it’s in no way a religious story. It’s writers were obviously Christian if not well versed in that faith, though, but that’s beside the point. It’s also one of the greatest stories ever told, it makes virgin birth look like a sweeps arch on a bad network TV show, and it paints the picture of Grendel, savage and tragic monster of the fen, the polar opposite evil to Beowulf’s goodness and maybe the single most frightening monster ever created. Needless to say, this poem means a lot to me.

Now I find out that the epic has been warped to give She, portrayed by Angelina Jolie and credited just as “Grendel’s Mother”, a lot more airtime than she should have, which is, of course, screwing with the Divine to give Jolie a vehicle. This is something akin to making a porno reality show out of Pygmalion. I’m sorry, I can’t write anymore, I have to rant later or I’ll put my fist through the screen, lol.

I got the worst text message I think I’ve ever gotten in my life. It said “Something wrong wNan check email”, which is the only reason I’m not sleeping right now.

Nan, one of my best and oldest friends, was checked into the hospital at around midnight, but lost conciousness in the ambulence on the way, I still don’t know all the particulars of what’s happened but atm all I know is that she collapsed in the kitchen getting a glass of water. I keep thinking it had to be something cancer related, since she’s been in and out of hospitals for the better part of a decade, lost both breasts and spent obscene amounts of money due to lack of health insurance. At any rate, she’s still not concious according to Jon‘s last text report and there’s a real threat of her losing her baby.

I just want to throw something through something else. Why do things like this happen? Why do horrible people like Tinus and The Pope live to ripe old ages, and spoiled ass people like Paris Hilton, Kristen Winters and Dale Davis end up even more spoiled assed while people like Nan and Wil have tumors eating them alive? What the fuck is the point of that? I swear to all that’s tangled and sticky in Odin’s beard, if there IS a God, and he’s not me, make him do something about it! For shit’s sake, he listens to you people, right? Well, Jesus, do something already! I’m tired of waiting and hearing about ‘belief’ – I don’t want faith ( Unless it’s me ), I want results, damn it!

Odin doesn’t even know I’m here, it’s not like I can invoke him to do anything more than eat everything in my fridge and write a poem about how weird it is to see with only one eye. But if there are Gods and Goddesses who can do something about human suffering, why aren’t their followers banding together and doing something about this? We should hold you all responsible for the problems of man that aren’t created by man. No merciful God with any real power would let people suffer and die like that, and no it’s not a matter of faith, and yes I AM questioning GOD. The fucking charleton.

And P.S., if God made people, I’ll eat my hat. And if he can raise the dead, then why can’t he obliterate cancer? I’m not saying nobody should ever die, what I am saying is that some suffering is USELESS, and if God allows it, then it’s because he’s a sadist and enjoys it somehow, or he just doesn’t care. Or, my personal favorite, he’s made up and there are only cloud-parts and geese in the clouds.

If she dies…I may snap someone’s neck.

I’m in the midst of an arguement with a girl I barely know on a forum I won’t name. She’s pissed at me because my forum signature bashes Mel Gibson – as if I need to apologize for not liking a bigot – and she let me know, right away, that I’m going to hell for my beliefs. Well, that explains a lot.

See, I’d always wondered how Gibson’s traffic ticket turned into “Jews blow”, and now I see it. It’s a Christian thing! This girl is pissed at me for not liking someone she likes, so, rather than say she disagrees with me and cite examples for why she thinks I’m wrong about this, she immediately she attacks my religion and character. Because, if I’m evil and I’m going to hell, then anything I say or feel can be immediately discounted, right? Is that encoded in the Bible somewhere? Discredit people with heathanism instead of offering a rebuttle? To quote a famous idiot, no wonder I think they’re evil, lol.

She actually told me, flat out, that Hitler practiced my religion ( Asatru, er Odinist is closer ) and that my people are responsible entirely for the Halocust which she has claimed in the past couldn’t have ever happened because there would be “A lot less Jews on TV is Hilter killed them all”.

First of all, if you believe everything Mel Gibson says, you’re a fucking moron. Great, Christians love him because he made religious snuff film, that’s nice for you, but to take his word as fact when his ‘historical’ films like Apocalypto are so predjudice, racist and have so little historical accuracy is insane.

Secondly, there is no way in hell that Hilter could have worshipped Odin. It’s just not possible. Let’s set aside the fact that Hitler, on more than one occasion, said that Christianity was the future of the Nazi Party and also set aside that he used up a lot of beliefs and different religions to get what he wanted, that doesn’t mean he actually believed in them. No, those facts pale in comparison to this one. Hitler committed suicide. Suicide! No Odin worshipper in their right mind would do that! Do you know what you have to do to get to Valhalla? It’s sure as hell not blow your own head off like a fucking coward! You have to, have to, die bravely in battle and then maybe the Valkyries will take you to Valhalla. Odin has no use for a coward, and Hitler wasn’t a stupid person – anything he practiced he would’ve known the rules to, inside and out.

It’d be nice if people did their research before opening their mouths.

Okay, I came across maybe the funnies thing I’ve read in a very long time on a blog I was pointed to by Despair.nu. I’m not going to mention the blogger’s name or url, but I am going to bitch a little bit.

Note: The following is a tangent rant, this girl only claimed that her being a good employee was based on the fact that she was Christian, the rest is ranting from me about this sort of attitude from other Christians as well. She didn’t say all of this, she just gave me an excuse to bitch about it, lol.

This blogger had the balls to flat out say that, because they are Christian, they’re automatically a better employee than they would be were they not Christian. That’s such a handful of dog shit, I can’t even begin to comprehend it.

Since when do your beliefs automatically make you better than someone who believes something you don’t? So, since I say this fork is silver and you say it’s metallic, does that mean I’m obviously more competant than you or that I can flip hamburgers better than you? Are you out of your fucking mind?

Let me give this to you as straight as I can muster it. Both my mother and my stepfather were devout Christians for as long as I’ve known them and they were both abusive – physically, emotionally and verbally – controlling and sadistic, and they aren’t the only Christians like that. In fact the great majority of the Christians I know or have met are absolutely the most incompetant, abusive, spoiled-ass bitches you’d ever want to meet. We’re talking people who bitch about homosexual marraige being immoral while wearing short shorts and falsies and toking up in their parents garage.

Is this stupid, wrecklass behavior because they Christian? Of course not, they’re just stupid. You’ll find the vast majority of people are. The point I’m trying to make is that your beliefs don’t make you a good person or a bad person, the life you choose to lead does. If you’re incompetant at work it’s your fault, not your God or lack therof’s fault.

I’m tired of Christians using any excuse they can to put down people who aren’t exactly like them. I swear to the Gods apples that if hear one more stupid Christian making one more stupid remark I may send them to their beloved Sky Jew, lol.

Tammy Faye

Jul. 20th, 2007 02:22 pm
bento_box: KFC Christmas (Default)
I don’t know how many people saw this, but last night Tammy Faye Messner(sp?) was being interviewed on Larry King Live. I was actually shocked. I don’t pay as much attention as I should to the Christian Nazis Corporation, obviously, but I had no idea she was so sick. She’s something like 65 pounds, can barely talk and, honestly, I don’t see her getting better.

Now, if you know me at all, you know this is true – I hate Christians. Yes, I realize that the blame for this hate is squarely on me, and that it’s something I need to work on so that I can get over my not-unfounded, yet stupid predjudices. But, predjudice and all, I felt so bad for her. I kept thinking, “How is she even moving?”, “How is she even talking?”, and the fact that her faith seems entirely and enthusiasticly unshaken amazes me.

It also confounds me. It doesn’t even look like an act for the camera and, let’s be honest, we’ve all seen people pretend to be possessed and have their demons ‘cast out’. Sometimes their acting could win an Oscar. I just didn’t get that vibe off Tammy Faye, even though I always get that vibe off of her.

Here’s the thing that pisses me off. She’s obviously dying. I mean, come on, if there were a Christian God, he could easily stop it. So if he is real, he wants it to happen or he’s just being a dick. I prefer a third option – he’s not there, and therefore her faith is a square peg in a round hole. But, back to my point.

She’s dying. She’s suffering. You’d think her fellow Christians would rally around her, wouldn’t you? Um, apparently that’s too much to ask for.

Last night I looked up Tammy’s name in Google ( I may be an evil, sin-doer, but I can at least leave well wishes in her guestbook, right? ), and what I found amazed me. 6 of the websites I visited based on search results ( all claiming to be conservative Christian websites ) were publicly bashing her for former wrong-doings and passing judgement. This is a dying woman, where’s this Christian compassion you preach? And, while we’re on the subject of preaching, since when is it your job to pass judgement?

That annoys me. This is why that bullshit “Not A True Christian” runaround from Christians pisses me off. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, go out, find a Christian and say, “Hey, if Christians are so great, why did _Fill_In_The_Blank_ Christian commit _Fill_In_The_Blank_ horror in the name of God?” and your answer will almost always be, “Well, they aren’t a true Christian.” no matter who you ask or what the circumstances of the question.

See, Christians like to run us around in circles. They’ve developed this idea that if you sin or act againt what the Bible preaches, you’re not a ‘true Christian’. The problem with this is that not one of them follows anything in the Bible. If this were true, there would be no Christians. And I’d do a happy dance.

Yes, it’s review time again. The reason being that I just saw the fabulee, splendiferious, gorgemous Brian Flemming religious documentary The God That Wasn’t There, and I strongly recommend it to anyone who’s been through the Jesus Freak scene and come out of it alive. Actually, I recommend it to anyone, period.

The films is chock full of fun facts to learn and know, including the time travelling Satan defence ( The Devil went back in time and switched things around to make Christians look like they’re lying when things don’t add up ) and the Rapture, which was an endless source of amusement.

One of the best things about the film is that the film maker, Brian Flemming, is a former Christian himself, and lets us peek into what his childhood was like in sad, snarky and touching candid moments when he turns the camera on himself.

I don’t have much of a lunch break left, but I just had to gush about it, lunchtime be damned, lol. Seriously, go see it, it’s farking fabulous.

I can’t believe I almost let Solstice go by without a “Merry Solstice”! I do that all the time, I remind myself 27/7 that a holiday’s coming up and then, last second, I forget to blog about it. On account of how smart I am, lol.

For those who don’t know, today is insanely important in most pagan and heathen religions. I hesitate to say all, because there’s likely no absolute, but for all of those who observe this holiday, have a good one! I’m off to Odin’s Blot, wish me monsters. :P

My consistant and never-ending rants about religion wouldn’t be complete without Wiccanism. Granted, this is seemingly out of nowhere but I’ve had this debate time and time again with everyone and anyone, and I thought it was time I bitched on my actual blog instead of at random people, lol.

Wiccanism, for those of you who don’t know, is the Christian’s bridge into paganism, the gateway drug, if you will. The devout few ( probably 10% of the Wiccan population – note: percentage is made up, lol ) know their stuff. They study, work, observe and shoot praise in the right direction. I have no problem with these people, in fact, they’re some of the best people you’ll ever want to meet. But they’re also few and far between.

The rest of the Wiccan population falls into one of two main catagories.

1. I live in a tree sprinkled with glitter.
These harmless assholes associate being Wiccan with being a “Witch”, in the traditional sense of the word, and have created some kind of weird, Evanescence, striped-leggings fairy world in which they’re special because they’re on some kind of higher plain with the elves and fairies and…well, you get the gist. The problem I have with these people is that they’ve devoted themselves to religion in order to play dress up when they could’ve gotten the same high by renting Ferngully.

2. I hate my family/church/peers and I want to be special.
Oh, how I hate these farging iceholes. These are the worst “Wiccans” you could possibly think of. They don’t know what they’re doing, unless knowing what you’re doing means shopping at Hottopic and proclaiming yourself to be “Wicca” or part of a “circle”, of which no other member can be identified. These bastages get their information on the occult from films like Teen Witch and The Craft ( actually not a bad place to get some info, but please don’t take the damn thing seriously ), and think that wearing a studded leather wristcuff makes you hardcore. These people also confuse Wiccanism with Hexcraft, assuming that just by stating that they’re “Wicca” now, they have the ability to put curses or spells on people. I hate people who don’t do their research.

These people, however, are generally not dangerous, they just burn my ass with brimstone. Rant over for the time being, lol.

Okay, if you’ve, you know, been alive you’ve heard about Left Behind series about those left on earth after The Rapture, right? Well, I’d like to be left behind, if that’s cool with everyone?

I’ve been talking to a friend of mine who’s recently converted to Christianity ( who shall remain nameless, unless she pisses me off, lol ), and we were chatting about Numb3rs and how Peter McNicole(sp?) must feel so old working with David Krumholtz now considering he worked with him in Addam’s Family Values when he was, what, 12? 13? Anyway, not the point. We were talking about this and, as is becoming a habit for her, out of nowhere she tells me, all broken up, that she feels like I’ve ‘become very dark’ and wishes I could turn to God to help me.

She also explained to me that I’ll be ‘left behind’ when the rapture happens, and that she’ll miss me but she won’t have to if I let her SAVE me. WTF kind of friend is that?

First of all, I haven’t ‘become very dark’, I’m just sardonic and a bit bitter, but I’m generally fairly easy going so what she said is, more or less, bullshit, lol. See, she’s not concerned with weither or not I’m okay, she’s concerned with weither or not she can ‘save me’.

For those of you who don’t realize it, the majority of people who want to ‘save’ you aren’t doing it because they genuinely fear for your soul and want the best for you. These people, more or less, just can’t stand that you don’t think the way they do – it drives them batshit.

That being said, there are people who agre genuinely looking out for your best interest. These folks are probably in your immediate family and don’t like the idea that they’ll go to Eternal Church and you’ll be left here, to party hearty while the world goes up in flames. ( That’s my bitch speak for they’re going to Heaven and you’re not, lol. )

At any rate, I’m sincerely tired of hearing this and I don’t know if I can keep hanging with this chick…she’s gotten weird. And not that neat, spanky weird I’m so fond of. Every time I talk to her it’s God this and Jesus that, but if I either don’t wanna talk about it or say anything at all about my own beliefs, she acts so put upon. Like I’m harassing her. WTF?

First of all, let me say Happy Easter for those who celebrate! I’ve finally kicked my bkg images ass and frelled with header accordingly and now it looks the way I originally intended it to. Yay! Now, onto my rant, Zombie Jesus-style!

I’m sleepy when it comes to people who refuse to do their homework. Seriously. It’s Easter and I know all of 10 people who know anything about the holiday other than baskets of candy and a Semetic zombie. Look, if that’s the way you choose to believe, then fine. I’m not gonna get up your ass for it, to each his own, right? But is it possible that you could lay of MY religion just a little bit?

Seriously, I don’t need you to save me. If by following Odin, I’m automatically going to your hell, well, Honey, it’s a risk I’m not only willing to take, but I can’t wait to take it. In fact, since I know you’re a sinner against your own beliefs and God(s), I guess I’ll see you there! We can drink lemonade and chit chat about that one time when I had to kill you for hounding me to get baptized and calling me a “sinner in the eyes of the Lord ( who’s Lord, exactly? )” and referring to my belief system as a “cult”. P.S., Didn’t you cover the meaning of the word “cult” in grade school? I don’t remember the word referring to heathenistic practices spread all over the world with no uniform religion. Please, for God’s sake if not Odin’s, crack a damn book!

What really pisses me off is that these comments are ALWAYS, as in WITHOUT FAIL the pure definition of uninvited. They come from either people I don’t know or people whose beliefs I’ve always tried to respect regardless of how retarded and asinine I feel them to be. Please, I know people think I’m a moron for worship of Gods, which I don’t mind but keep it to yourself, okay? This isn’t like valid coding or how big my header image is, this is my chosen religion and your comments are NOT going to help me, damn it!

That being said I realize there are a few who’ve contacted me who truely believe they’re helping in some way, and to them I want to extend a thanks for the effort but think of it this way: What if you were in the minority? If only a handful of people believed in Jesus? Would you still believe even if it wasn’t popular? Of course you would. Understand that I love my Gods the way you love yours and please, let’s just co-exist in peace, okay? We don’t have to like eachother, or agree with eachother.
