Do you ever just feel like Ted Mosby?
Because i do.
A graphical representation of the contradictions in the bible. Each red line links 2 contradicting statements.
WILL ALWAYS REBLOG.
This reminds me of a really fascinating theological idea I read once. It poses that God meant for the Bible to be full of contradictions, because it isn’t an instruction manual, but a test of character. If you can read through all the books and stories, all the confusing, contradictory statements, and you still choose to take home a message of peace, acceptance, and forgiveness, then you’ve passed God’s test.
I’m not a very religious person, but I still really like that idea.
^ I like that interpretation :D
same here. i think the bible needs to be taken figuratively, not literally. it should make you a better person, more understanding, not more judgmental. there is nothing wrong with religion, but there is something wrong with thinking someones religion is the right one.
Flawless logic at play

It’s very strange to think that even though Sailor Moon started over 20 years ago, people everywhere still choose hate over friendship, love and justice!
If you think abortions ok, remember what Horton says.
Awkward. Dr. Seuss and his wife were really liberal and pro-choice. They’ve even threatened to sue pro-life organizations for using this quote the wrong way (the way you’re doing it actually). I guess you didn’t already know that Horton Hears a Who is about the American occupation of Japan post-WWII. He even dedicated it to his dear Japanese friend.
Mrs. Geisel (Mrs. Seuss) continued donating to Planned Parenthood and advocating for reproductive health and rights after her husband died.
Do you guys remember That’s So Raven? That’s So Raven, one of the few shows Disney channel did right. That’s So Raven, if you don’t remember starred Raven Symone as Raven Baxter. Let me tell you somethings about Raven Baxter; Raven Baxter wasn’t a thin girl nor did she want to be famous singer like EVERY OTHER CHARACTER ON TELEVISION TODAY. No, Raven was a girl with some extra meat on her bones that wanted to be a fashion designer and model her own work. Remember the episode where a magazine put her head on another model’s body because she didn’t have ‘the look’ and how Raven fought to change it? What happened to episodes like that, Disney Channel? Yes, That’s So Raven, despite being a show about a psychic, was the most real kids show on television. What about the episode dealing with racism when the store manager refused to hire Raven because she’s black? Or the episode dealing with drugs when Raven thought her brother, Cory, was smoking? This was a show that was popular and relatable. It didn’t feature a new song every week, it didn’t need to! The hilarious antics of the costume wearing Raven Baxter, mixed with life lessons we can actually read, made this show the best show Disney Channel came up with ever.
