I’m way smarter than you and I have no idea how the hell anyone could be SO STUPID as to disagree with me! How could ANYONE come to a conclusion other than the same one I’ve come to?! That’s pure stupidity!

I have a lot of mixed feelings about Turkey. I am a huge fan of the secular Turkish state and even of it’s current government. I don’t like that the generals feel like they can coup every year and get away with it. That being said, I LOVE PM ERDOGAN. This man, y’all.
“I’m yet another resource-consuming kid in an overpopulated planet, raised to an alarming extent by Madison Avenue and Hollywood, poised with my cynical and alienated peers to take over the world when you’re old and weak. Am I scary, or what?”—Calvin, of Calvin & Hobbes
“Losing in the Finals last year put me back in place. It humbled me a lot, and I was able to go back to the basics. A lot of people had a lot to do with it, but at the end of the day, I just looked at myself in the mirror and said ‘You need to be better both on and off the floor.’ And I’m happy that I was able to put myself and our team in a position to win this.”—Miami Heat forward — and 2012 NBA Champion — LEBRON JAMES
Sodom is referenced multiple times in the Bible as an example of great sinning. And what might that sin be?
In Isaiah 1:10-17 it is thought to be injustice, not rescuing the oppressed, defending the orphan, pleading for the widow. In Jeremiah 23:14 it is adultery. In Ezekiel 16:48-49 it is the sin of not aiding the “poor and needy.” In Zephaniah 2:8-11 the sin is bullying, boasting and pride. In the Wisdom of Solomon it is “the bitter hatred of strangers.”
The sin is not about being gay. It is not about non-straight sexual orientation. The sin of Sodom was lacking hospitality, not being just, bullying, hating strangers, not caring for those marginalized. Funny, they are all things Churches (and individuals for that matter) sorely need to keep in mind and be better at practicing when it comes to how we do or do not welcome LGBTQ folk into our lives. After all, in today’s society, who is more marginalized, more bullied, more treated like a “stranger,” than them? Come to think of it, not so funny.
