My mission statement~

I intend on "trying" to live a life that is about: not putting in my mouth things that are bad for me or have come from an animal that was treated cruely while alive on this earth and during slaughter, creating lasting fond memories for my children and grandchildren, adventure, challenging myself, respect others regardless of species, race, color or creed, taking risks, having fun, being grateful, respecting myself & my body, being authentically myself, taking responsibility for my actions, being proactive, being a problem solver, taking action, introspection, transition, change, honesty, growth, loving & helping others, having integrity, doing my best, being easy on myself, enjoying this world, becoming well read, seeing the wonder of it all and never allowing fear to hold me back!

What the hell????????????????????

I JUST READ A CARTOON ON SOMEONES BLOG THAT UPSET ME SO THAT IT OUTRAGED ME AND MAKES ME CRY. IT WAS SAYING SOMETHING ABOUT BEING WHITE WAS BETTER THEN BEING BLACK.
MY WHOLE ENTIRE LIFE I HAVE BEEN COMPLETELY MIFFED BY PEOPLE WHO CALL THEMSELVES "CHRISTIANS' AND THROW "JESUS'S" NAME AROUND AND YET SO PROUDLY AND OPENLY TALK TRASH ABOUT GOD'S CHILDREN THAT ARE A DIFFERENT COLOR THEN THEM!
NUTS! ABSOLUTELY NUTS!
HEY GUESS WHAT............JESUS WAS BORN IN BETHLEHEM, JUDEA.
HE WAS A OF JEWISH DECENT. WHERE HE WAS BORN, PEOPLE HAVE BROWN SKIN! HE WAS NOT "WHITE" PEOPLE!
GOD CREATED ALL OF US!
WHAT KIND OF FATHER WOULD CREATE TO THEN WANT HIS CHILDREN TO HATE EACHOTHER??!!!!!!
GOD=LOVE
GOD DOES NOT WANT HIS OWN CHILDREN TO HATE EACH OTHER
OR
FEEL THAT THEY ARE BETTER THAN ONE ANOTHER.
ARE YOU A MOTHER OR FATHER??????
WOULD YOU SEPARATE YOUR OWN CHILDREN AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO HATE EACH OTHER OR SPLIT THEM UP BY COLOR OR INTELLIGENCE???
DOES ANYONE HONESTLY THINK THAT WHEN THEY GET TO HEAVEN GOD IS GOING TO HIGH FIVE THEM FOR HATING THEIR OWN SISTER OR BROTHER.
IT IS SO SIMPLE!
SO CUT AND DRY.
AND SO NUTS
THAT ANYONE WOULD THINK IT OK TO THINK THEY WERE BETTER THEN SOMEONE ELSE BASED ON COLOR, RACE, CREED, OR SOCIOECONOMIC STATUS!!!!!!!!!!
I AM DISGUSTED BY THIS DESPICABLE AND DISGRACEFUL ATTITUDE OF HATE!
GOD IS LOVE!
GOD IS EVERYONE'S FATHER!
FATHER'S DON'T WANT THEIR CHILDREN TO HATE EACHOTHER!
GOD DOESN'T THINK ONE CHILD IS BETTER THEN THE OTHER!
DA!

Couldn't agree more.

DesertHen said...

Wow...something big must have happened in order for you to create this post. I whole heartedly agree with you!!! God loves us all....just as we should love each other!!!

Oh you poor baby! I totally agree 110% God IS love; I always grew up with the "Fire and Brimstone" preachers that talked about sinning and then scared the living sand right outta ya! So I never quite felt I fit in with any "church"; then I started going to my current one and Wow!!!What a difference! My pastor is a "teacher" and I can say I feel so loved in this congregation which is over 1,000 people. We are a happy family and Our Savior IS our Father....plain and simple. You Go Girl.....~Teresa~ ((((HUGS)))

Gail said...

I agree whole heartedly!

nikkicrumpet said...

Dang...I'm shocked that anyone would be so blatantly narrow minded that they would post something like that on their blog. You'd think by now people would be more enlightened and less stupid! I agree with everything you said!!!

Dana and Daisy said...

I don't even know what to say.

Deb said...

Why does it seem that people who boast about being good Christians are often those that throw stones?

Mental P Mama said...

I agree with you.

Just remember that ignorance is everywhere.

Scrappy Girl said...

Amen girlie! I hate that you got so upset...haters are out there...you just have to do the best YOU can and be a light for others.

Jeannelle said...

AMEN and AMEN!

Cynthia said...

It's so sad that not everyone feels this way- I'm with you, it just seems so obvious that no one is inherently better than another. We are lucky in that several races are within the bounds of our family and it has done nothing but make as better as a group.

Miss Anne said...

Amen.

well said.

now c'mere and lemme give you a hug!

Janie said...

hugshugshugshugs....a

God does so equal love!

Jo said...

Wow! What a great post! And yes, the iconic pictures of the tall, blond-haired, blue-eyed Jesus are so wrong. He would have been about 5 ft. tall, swarthy, black hair, brown eyes, and he spoke Judeo-Aramaic and some Hebrew. But whatever language he spoke, he taught about love.

I like Deb's remarks. It's so true that many people who call themselves Christian, are really not Christian at all.

What a great post!

Tink said...

That is upsetting, which reminds me of a quote by Ghandi who basically says Christians don't follow Jesus. May we exemplify Him not worry about color. ewww.

Megan and Jonathan said...

Yeah, Jesus most likely looked like what most people think of as "Arab"
