The fact of the matter is, it doesn’t matter whether or not you think homosexuality is a sin. Let me say that again. It does not matter if you think homosexuality is a sin, or if you think it is simply another expression of human love. It doesn’t matter. Why doesn’t it matter? Because people are dying. Kids are literally killing themselves because they are so tired of being rejected and dehumanized that they feel their only option left is to end their life. As a Youth Pastor, this makes me physically ill. And as a human, it should make you feel the same way. So, I’m through with the debate. When faced with the choice between being theologically correct…as if this is even possible…and being morally responsible, I’ll go with morally responsible every time.

What You Believe About Homosexuality Doesn’t Matter | Tyler Smither (via lacohan)

I wish I had heard this just ONCE growing up in the church. Just once.

I remember seeing this short film a long time ago. Basically, this little machine sees a television with a pretty doll face. She wants to be just like what she sees on t.v, and changes her appearance. The standards get higher and higher (literally), but she tries earnestly.

You can see what happens in the end.This video leaves a powerful message about how our standards of beauty are too high and soon it becomes out of reach.

As one of the comments of the video says

"She was original but she died a copy."

That’s fucking cruel

This isn’t fucking funny. My mom has been a waitress almost all of my life and for most of it we lived off of scraps. She worked hard every damn day being paid less than minimum wage to help raise us four kids. All of our meals, all of our clothing, all of our school books, our fucking rent was always paid by tips. Some weeks were better than others but we learned how to make our dimes stretch and now she is doing better, with a manager position where things are more stable for her.
Bakc to the point, don’t any of you ever, EVER FUCKING DO THIS. SPREADING THE WORD OF YOUR RELIGION IS FINE AND DANDY BUT DON’T TO IT AT THE COST OF A SINGLE MOTHER NOT BEING ABLE TO FEED HERSELF SO HER KIDS CAN HAVE A PLACE TO SLEEP AT NIGHT.

When Christians act like little fucks

This is such an incredibly UNChristian thing to do.

Cinnamon & Oat Pancakes
These are absolutely lovely little breakfast pancakes - you don’t taste the oats very much, but they’re much more filling than regular pancakes. They were a compromise this weekend, as I fancied pancakes and my boyfriend wanted porridge, et voila, a porridge pancake. Cinnamon & oat sounds better. This is my adapted version of Martha Stewart’s recipe. If you don’t have baking cups, get some, they’re brilliant! 
Put 1 cup of plain flour, 1/2 a cup of rolled oats, 1/8 cup demerara sugar, 1/2 tablespoon baking powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt & 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon into a food processor, and process until the oats are broken up. Whisk 1 and 1/2 cups of milk with 1 egg and 1/8 cup vegetable oil, then stir in the flour-oat mixture and another 1/2 cup of rolled oats. If the mixture looks too thick, add more milk. Drop heaped tablespoons onto a hot slightly oiled pan, and cook for a couple of minutes on each side. You’ll know when to flip them, as the top looks set instead of runny. Add a little more oil to the pan if you need it. These keep warm nicely in between two plates in the oven while you get on with making the rest. Serve with golden syrup, blueberries and bananas - perfect for a lazy weekend breakfast.

I think people need to realize that it’s okay to like stuff and not have a deep reason for it

You can like a character because they’re cute, not because you identify with them
You can like a ship because you think they look good together, not because of a deep emotional bond

You can like a song because it’s catchy, not because of the meaningful lyrics

If you like it that’s okay, you don’t have to have deep reason or meaning behind it
