Fake Christians

Have you seen this goddamn bumper sticker?

Cross equals heart.

How many of these people broadcasting this on their cars do you think are Republican?

Because I have a bit of news for you.

I hope you’re sitting down.

Ready?

You can’t, no matter how you try to explain yourself, vote for people who vote to strip healthcare from millions of people in order to give tax cuts to the ultra wealthy, and call yourself a Christian.

Actually, you can call yourself whatever the fuck you want, but you surely aren’t a follower of Jesus.

You are, in fact, the exact antithesis of it.

How dare you?

Really, how dare you?

It’s sickening.

I am sickened by your hypocrisy and your greed and your hate.

Sickened.

But, you literally don’t know what you do. You literally can’t control it.

Until you can.

So, I just sit here, in gratefulness, for the fact that I automatically love my neighbor as if he/she is me. And I’m also so grateful that, for the most part, the people reading this right this second are orchestrated similarly.

“No one can serve two masters. Either you will hate the one and love the other, or you will be devoted to the one and despise the other. YOU CANNOT SERVE BOTH GOD AND MONEY”

Live Like A Fruit Fly 

What’s Your Blood Type?

“We’re all going to die, all of us, what a circus! That alone should make us love each other but it doesn’t. We are terrorized and flattened by trivialities, we are eaten up by nothing.”

– Charles Bukowski

Today is my dad’s birthday. I miss him. Right down to the bone marrow, I miss him.

And sometimes I don’t even want to live anymore either.

But not because I miss him so much. That would just be weak.

Rather because, the lifeblood flowing through our society’s veins is commerce when it should be kindness. And sometimes that heaviness is just too much for me to bear.

Especially since we all share the same destiny.

But here I shall stay because, well, there’s much work to be done.

And by “work” I mean: sensing beauty when I can and more importantly, adding beauty when I can.

Maybe you will consider the same.
