This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.
This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.
hello??? where am i???
this cat looks a lot less happy to be in narnia than i would be
"I want to go home all the other animals here are aggressively Christian and keep trying to take me to bible study with a Lion"
I had to reblog for that last comment
That comment wins the internet
- Kurt and Blaine have a one on one moment. Kurt reveals that he’s about to go on a first date with a guy he met online. Blaine feels a twinge of regret. He realizes that Kurt really IS the love of his life, but he keeps that thought to himself. However, he does share with Kurt that Sue’s schemes gave him second thoughts about his relationship with Karofsky.
So Blaine “realizes” he loves Kurt just when it seems that Kurt is finally
escaping from his clutches moving on. So PREDICTABLE. At this point Blaine is the King of Unhealthy Relationships.
Run, Kurt, run!
Run, Dave, run!
I hate what they did to Kurt. I hate what they are doing to DAVE.
I hate what that did and are doing with Blaine, he started as “gay prince charming” and now he seems much more “gay prince Hans”.
And don’t get me started on the absolute LAMENESS of the “Sam under Sue hypnosys” idea. Straight out of every crappy soap opera ever aired!
Female pilots edited out of the Star Wars movies.
I saw the tweets about this today, and I was like oh yeah, I remember hearing about that.
And then I saw the pictures and just— wow. What it would have meant to have these women in the movie, all this time. I can’t properly articulate it but it’s hitting me unexpectedly hard.
Wow thats a shame, even a nice old lady too. These Space Valkyries should have been left in.
They really should have.
I lived, ate, and breathed Star Wars from age 2 until 2005 when RotS finally beat the enthusiasm out of me, and I have NEVER, EVER in all my reading on behind-the-scenes and makings-of heard of these shots. It’s a shame there was no relaunched edit of the original trilogy they could have slipped these in OH FUCKING WAIT THERE’S BEEN LIKE 3 OF THOSE NOW.
Fuck. FUCK. Whoever decided to edit out and bury these needs to french kiss an angle grinder.
I want to see the old lady in the A-Wing. Seriously, it’s like, she’s somebody’s grandma. Some kid in the Outer Rim Territories got greased by the Empire for seeing something she wasn’t supposed to see, and her grandma, the bush pilot, decided “Fuck this, I’m gonna strap on an fighter and make the Empire fucking PAY for the moment it decided to fuck with MY FAMILY.”
DON’T. MESS. WITH. GRANDMA.These are quickly being put into the “always reblog” category.
Whenever there is a war, there are women who are warriors. Then they get erased from history. Happens in real wars and fictional ones alike.
Talk about lost occasions…
I’ve always appreciated the fact that Star Wars gave us Princess Leia as a legitimate action character: the moment she was out of that cell on the Death Star she showed that she was capable as a rebel fighter and leader, and she never reverted to “helpless damsel in distress” status.
Star Wars also gave us a woman as leader of the rebellion, but both Mon Mothma and Leia were somewhat “special” in status. The only other woman I remember in the movies is the lady in the Hoth control room that is rrelayng orders to the ion cannon. I don’t remember any other woman among the rebels. Showing these pilots would have been PERFECT: ordinary people fighting for their and other people freedom, no matter their gender. It has always happened, it will always happened and it would have done much good showing it.
Kinda curious how many people this is true of.
And I used to be a klainer…
"I want a comic where everyone is queer without explanation" did u mean young avengers??
And of course Loki is a genderqueer shapeshifter and I’m pretty sure there’s a part where Noh Varr says he’s been with boys but I can’t find it.
Basically everyone in YA is queer. Everyone.
