Feminism is dead?!

Published March 25, 2014 by firefly12mal

The current batch of feminists has completely lost the plot if the recent twitter postings are anything to go by. A twitter post titled kill all men has some pretty pathetic comments that simply prove the point that these women don’t know what the feminists of the past actually did. These twitters are very concerned with banning the word ‘bossy’, complaining when a man asks for a phone number and wanting to get rid of all men so they can live in a feminist utopia. Never mind that in other parts of the world female genital mutilation still happens and women are still stoned. 

these feminists are more concerned with getting their nails done and crying in the latte’s about some perceived wrong done to them, living in their world of privilege and excess, while around the world, other women don’t have enough to eat and have to watch their babies die from starvation. These are educated women. It wasn’t long ago that women were not educated because what is the point of educating someone when all that is expected of them is have babies and run a household. There are women all over this world who still have no right to an education and are shot for trying to get one. Women can work in whatever field they want to and have the skills for. In the western world that is. 

It wasn’t so long ago that women were burned at the stake because they were skilled midwives and healers. Had rank and privilege, money, in other words and some jealous person wanted it. And yes, it was men who made those rules, and it would  have been men that stopped it too, because they were the ones the rulers listened to. They were the ones that fought the battles that changed the rules. 

These privileged feminists don’t know how lucky they are that the only thing wrong in the pathetic world is a man asking for a phone number or a date. They can’t even say ‘no; nicely, they have to get on twitter and rant. They have no idea how much men do for them or how quickly their pathetic little worlds would collapse into ruins without men. A feminist utopia? Save me from such a thing. Having to listen to their voices screeching about clothes and make up and who’s having sex with who would drive me insane.

Feminism has come so far;   And in one brief moment it’s all been shoved backwards.   


Christians in the letterbox

Published March 19, 2014 by firefly12mal

My local Baptist Church has been doing the rounds lately, dropping their flyers into people’s letterboxes all over town. This is their right of course. They are allowed to try and recruit new members, (that is what they are doing) and they have their own methods of doing this. A great number of people may simply throw these things away without ever reading them, especially those of other religious beliefs. Some may read them and then throw them away. This post is for those who read them, who don’t know the Bible that well and may be wondering if what the church is saying is true or accurate. This post is for those whom the Church scares with their little tracts, because the Church gives you one point of view, theirs. They ignore the blatant contradictions within the Bible. Assert that it is the pure Word of God and must be believed at all costs. Every word, they will tell you is accurate.

Unfortunately, every word is not accurate. And becuase I say this, they will brand me as Anti-Christian (which I am not). If i disagree with anything about the jews or Israel, I am Anti-Semitic (another incorrect statement). I am pro-truth. I want people to be aware of both sides of the story. So far this Church has dropped 5 different tracts around town. That is enough to keep a blogger going for months.

These tracts carry titles such as ‘Do you believe?” ‘What is the Gospel?’, ‘The Love of God?’, ‘What must I do to go to Heaven?’, ‘What must I do to go to Hell?’.

Fascinating stuff, if you’re interested, but really, how much of this is simple scaremongering and how much is designed to bring people into the church, the right church of course and to bring in revenue for the church? In case you didn’t know, when you join a Christian Church you are expected to tithe 10% of your income to the church. All well and good, if you can afford it. But how many of us can in this financial climate. The church will then tell you to trust in God to have enough money to get through. If you struggle it’s because you don’t have enough faith, not because the church is taking too much.

Back to our little Bible tracts. Is there one in particular you would like me to start with or shall I just leap into the fray boots and all and pick one?
