I’m really tired of the lack of coverage on Ferguson. It’s almost as if the Ebola hype fits perfectly into the white fear of black people while also allowing white media to not talk about actual black people and the oppression they continue to face.

I think ebola may be just a little more important

^ proof?

I’m racist because I want focus on a disease that’s capable of killing thousands instead of a controversial case?
Pound sand

Racism has killed more black people in the last few months than Ebola has in the West. And more black people in. The history of the world than Ebola has.

Talk to me some more about what’s a real threat.

catholics view sacred scripture as challenging, complex, god-breathed, living; a product of the culture and experiences of its many and varied authors and those of its many and varied readers. we’re taught that it’s not a literal, inerrant, simple text to be engaged legalistically. not a static rule book.

so why are we expected to engage with sacred tradition that way?

Okay people, I wanna know how u do ur dishes. Like, when you wash them in the sink how do you wash them? Because the what most British people do it is different to how we do it in Spain. Like, I didn’t even know there were different ways of washing up the dishes but there are and I personally ME I find the British way very unhygienic (again my onion not attacking anyone’ family). Okay let me know. I’m not saying how they do it because I don’t want to influence your answer. Please answer please anon or whatevs I wanna know x

If you use prayer/scripture to get out of genuinely being there for a person, you’re doing it wrong.

plz help me find something edifying I can say about this passage of scripture

bc holy damn I am struggling here

For me I think it’s helpful to remember that WE ARE OFTEN THIS TERRIBLE DEBTOR/SLAVE. Like, we owe God a ridiculous debt, that he cancels because he’s merciful, and then we treat one another in the EXACT OPPOSITE WAY - we aren’t merciful, we don’t forgive people their debts and sins against us (i.e. we hold grudges; forgiveness doesn’t mean full reconciliation), and we concern ourselves with ourselves and refuse to engage the Other when we have power and they do not. 

This is a lesson in the undoing of the cycle of violence and oppression that Rowan Williams talks about so much.

“Mary is blessed most of all because she heard the word of God and carried it out. She preserved the Truth in her mind even more than she preserved the Flesh in her womb.”

Not sure why riverplants decided to quote directly from an ASPCA list without linking it, but here you go: http://www.aspca.org/pet-care/virtual-pet-behaviorist/dog-behavior/foods-are-hazardous-dogs.

Please please PLEASE, tumblr, link to things. There’s so much fluff and nonsense and misinformation flying about, that with important things we really ought to have some sort of verification. 

I mean, just do this at the bottom of your posts if you don’t want it to be a big ugly link:

NOOOOOOOOOOO🙉😫😱

GMOs are no bad.

Repeat: GMOs ARE NOT BAD

"What are people so worried about, then? Some have argued that new allergies could be induced by the creation of new proteins—Novella calls this a "legitimate concern" but says that GM foods undergo testing to prevent this from happening. Some fear that when GM foods are used as feed for livestock, there will be unintended consequences for humans who eat them. But again, there’s no evidence that animals that eat GM foods pose any health risks to us. "To date," says Novella, "the reviews conclude pretty universally that there’s just no health risk.""

do you ever just discover a new band

and you listen to their song

and you can tell straight away

 and you just sit there in complete silence as your entire soul shifts and your entire being begins to beat intune to the sudden new music and your entire world opens up to all the new emotions that you’re going to discover jjust by listning to another humans voice

yep
