Post for the Public Good

Having reviewed certain circumstances relating to a recently posted advertisement for a movie around town and school, I must encourage my readers not to go and view the Left Behind movie--unless seeing it as a fictional work.

This is not to say that the Book of Revelation and Salvation are not completely true, but this is to say that the movie depicts both in a very Hollywood manner. I discourage seeing this movie because of the religious opinions it implies, chiefly that those left at the Rapture have a second chance. When Christ comes for His Church, we've officially abandoned ship. There will be no second redemption for man--in this I encourage you all to read the Bible itself, and not the (though creative) fictional accounts of the last days of Earth.

For a more complete reasoning behind this semi-boycott, see Pastor Ketcham--he can explain it better than I can.

If you happen to agree with this, please share the message with those you care about. Good fiction, the movie may be--but few people will be able to tell the difference.

A Salute to the Stones

You call yourself a Christian
I think that you're a hypocrite
You say you are a patriot
I think that you're a crock of shit

And listen now, the gasoline
I drink it every day
But it's getting very pricey
And who is going to pay

How come you're so wrong
My sweet neo con....
Yeah, It's liberty for all
'Cause democracy's our style
Unless you are against us
Then it's prison without trial

But one thing that is certain
Life is good at Haliburton
If you're really so astute
You should invest at Brown & Root....

Yeah, How come you're so wrong
My sweet neo con
If you turn out right
I'll eat my hat tonight

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah....
It's getting very scary
Yes, I'm frightened out of my wits
There's bombers in my bedroom
Yeah and it's giving me the shits
We must have lots more bases
To protect us from our foes
Who needs these foolish friendships
We're going it alone

How come you're so wrong
My sweet neo con
Where's the money gone?
In the Pentagon..

Sweet Neo-Con
The Rolling Stones, 2005

Last week was 'Spirit Week', a five day tribute to the enigma of high school football and the people who worship it like a smelly, grass stained idol. I cooperated for two of them--high roller and pajama day(s)--and enjoyed being able to wear a robe in public muchly. Now, we all know about the issue of the week--the Saturday shindig. I know, I'm in no way attached to this place or its politics. Not part of any hardcore extracurricular, I can completely ignore everything if I want. But..I listen to the gossip and get some weird pleasure out of it..stupid human, you sleep on the step tonight.

Homecoming itself was fun. The parade, the game (42-14, them), and the dance. Dances...I start out stiff, but loosen up and enjoy as time goes on.

The days is such a soap opera. I miss my older friends, who I got to see Friday..all I have left are those of my class I like and the younger ones..but they haven't grown out of their angsty, dramatic phase. I like them...just..not the little romantic screenplays. Backstabbing, forbidden loves, odd kinks.

Sweet Armageddon...
