the reason i have next to no respect for pro-lifers isn’t because i don’t respect that everybody has a right to their opinion it’s because there’s a difference between saying ”i don’t like that and i wouldn’t do it” and saying ”i don’t like that and nobody should be allowed to do it because i obviously have the right to dictate what you do with your body”
So very true
my god yes
The sad reality.
*la France ;)
I’m a Christian, and even I can recognize how ridiculous it is for people to oppose gay marriage based on the grounds that “The Bible defines marriage as one man and one woman.” That’s simply not true.
If these are barbaric and no longer acceptable practices, then I think we can say that prejudice against queer people is also barbaric and no longer acceptable.
didn’t Jesus more or less say “Ok, rules of Leviticus dont longer apply, since through my death I free you from all this original sin stuff” anyways?
“After this I go to work at a pizza shop. My wife and I were college professors in Bangladesh. I taught accounting. But one dollar in America becomes eighty dollars when we send it back home.”
People forget, when immigrants come to this country they start from scratch. They could have been lawyers in their home country, but in the US..it means nothing. You think a HS diploma from Bangladesh means anything in this country? My mom was a top student in the country, went to all the best school and got the best of everything…but when she got here it meant squat and she was cleaning other people’s homes and scrubbing their toilets. This is why I get pissed of when people talk smack about immigrants. They at least are doing something…..heading for a goal..making sacrifices…what are you doing with your life?
^ My parents were college-educated teachers in their home country and came to the U.S. with nothing but empty pockets, a dash of hope, and a belief in God. They also scrubbed toilets in people’s homes to make enough to provide for their children, and that’s probably not something a lot of educated professionals would be able to do. I know I wouldn’t be able to do it. Pride would get in the way.
THIS IS TOO IMPORTANT.
Yep. People do forget this. My mother got two degrees in mathematic and in physics in el salvador but when she came to the US she wound up working as a seamstress for $5 an hour. People forget the sacrifices that immigrants make. It’s infuriating.
Remember limewire. Remember sometimes getting the song you were actually looking for and sometimes getting an mp3 of bill clinton saying that he didn’t have sexual relations with that woman instead
