Some News

Well, this is the second sick day I've taken this week, but since it's my last semester of college I couldn't care a whole lot.

I do feel horrible though.

Anyway, I thought I'd do something productive and post a few news articles I've found.

My home state of Kentucky is doing some bullshit with this anti-bullying bill. Apparently bullying gay kids is totally okay if you're doing in the name of the Lord. Article is here. Some more freedom-of-speech/anti-gay stuff: The Westboro Baptist Church has free rein over funerals ( I know its from Fox News, but don't hold that against me) & kids have the right to wear anti-gay t-shirts in school. (Note: My high school did not allow people to wear the Confederate flag because it could offend the 7 black kids that were enrolled in the school.)

Listen, I'm all for the freedom of speech. But you have to use it wisely. You don't yell fire in a crowded theater, after all. Everyone knows you yell rape.

In other religion stuff, the Bible is being updated!

No longer will that terrible word "holocaust" be used! Instead "burnt offerings" will be used. Because if they can't have the modern Christian reader confuse a sacrifice to God with the death of millions of Jews.

Also, they're finally getting rid of that sexy word "booty," and Mary is no longer a virgin but a "young woman." Good. It was starting to get pornographic.

But that's not all! Gansta's Paradise will no longer have biblical references! Thank God!

I can't wait to download this on my e-book!

(Just kidding. I don't really have an e-book.)

I honestly don't know what to do with this world anymore.
