“I have no trouble with my enemies. I can take care of my enemies in a fight. But my friends, my goddamned friends, they’re the ones who keep me walking the floor at nights!”—Warren G. Harding (via bitchville) (via quote-book)
“I’m trying to find myself as a person, sometimes that’s not easy to do. Millions of people live their entire lives without finding themselves. But it is something I must do. The best way for me to find myself as a person is to prove to myself that I am an actress.”—Marylin Monroe (via quote-book)
is a 2006 American documentary film directed by Rachel Grady and Heidi Ewing about a charismatic summer camp for children who spend their summers learning and practising their “prophetic gifts” and being taught that they can “take back America for Christ.” According to the distributor, it “doesn’t come with any prepackaged point of view” and tries to be “an honest and impartial depiction of one faction of the
evangelical Christian community.”
People fail to understand that religious extremists can exist in any religion, not just in the Muslim faith (contrary to popular belief). It is disturbing to watch these people brain wash their children into fulfilling their own political agenda under the guise of religious enlightenment. Children have fragile minds and the values we instill in them last well into their adult years, whether or not the children, themselves, realize it (i.e. abused children are more likely to become abusers in adulthood.)
And if they are claiming that “terrorists” are focusing on the upbringing of their own children to wage a religious war with America, then is not a terrorist tactic to also do the same to America’s children? I’m just saying… I mean, you can’t exactly judge those whose beliefs and practices you criticize, when you are guilty of doing the very same thing. That, my friends, is text-book hypocrisy.
And in general, I just have a problem with those too involved with their own religious beliefs to the point where intuition and logic become out of practice, and dare I say it, unused functions of the mind.
I think kiddie pageants are creepy and foster inauthenticity in kids’ characters, teaching them to value the wrong things in life. Also, pardon me, but a 3 year old should not have a drop of make-up on her skin —lets save that for her later teen years, shall we?
