Shaky Times 30


I accidentally deleted a comment in my opinionated section today. When I say accidentally, I truly mean it, though I’m sure that the commenter will say that I did it to silence her or because I’m afraid of “the truth” or some other BS that people say when you delete something they say online. I’ve thought about e-mailing her and asking her to rewrite what she said, but honestly, I don’t really care what she said. She acted like she had a right to post on my website. Now, I usually love my commenters and I enjoy debating, but I would like to point out that the only person who truly has the right to say anything on here is me. I could make the comments sections go away. I could take the questions page away. I could “silence” everyone. I don’t, though, because I’m interested in what others have to say. I do, however, reserve the right to delete any comments, questions, etc. that I don’t feel comfortable with, especially abusive ones. I also reserve the right to ban IPs of people who make said comments, questions, etc.

Speaking of commenters in my opinionated section, I’ve apparently struck a nerve with one guy. Apparently, I’m not a Christian because I believe in a woman’s right to choose and because I’m a “liberal”. (He put it in quotation marks for some very odd reason.) Apparently, I’m not putting Christ first and not focusing on His will, so I can’t be a good little Christian girl. Now, forgive me if I’m wrong, but didn’t God give us free will? Didn’t He basically say that how we live our lives is up to us? Now, following this train of thought, most Christians believe Jesus is God (I don’t…I see the trinity as three separate entities), so…if God wants us to have free will then He would want us to be able to choose what happens with our lives and bodies. So, wouldn’t it go against His will if we told people that we know what’s best for their lives? And does anyone really put Christ first? Maybe a few people, but most put themselves or their families first. When you wake up in the morning, is your first thought “What would Jesus like for me to do today?” I seriously doubt that it is. I may not know how “normal” people think, but I do know a little about “normal” people, and one thing I know is that people, by nature, care about themselves and their families first. Does that mean everyone is going to Hell? I doubt it. If God can love the judgemental people, then surely He can love the “selfish” and the “liberals”. (BTW – Jesus was a “liberal”. :P)

I feel bad for the people of London today. A day after they find out that they’re going to host the Olympics in a few years, they have such a tragedy happen. It’s sad. You know what’s weird? Giuliani was in London today. I think he’s a beacon for terror. Maybe he should have to spend some time on an island isolated from the rest of society. I don’t think he brings good luck to any city. Okay, so it has just been two cities where he was present during major acts of terrorism, but it seems a little odd to me.

Xander has gotten to where he wants to sleep in my room again. He hadn’t been doing that for a long time, since some time after we got Molly. He’s slept in my room twice this week. Gretchen also has wanted to sleep in my room twice this week. Of course, she’s wanted to sleep back there because she’s terrified of fireworks and firecrackers.

I’m very annoyed with lithium. It has made life very difficult. My hands shake a lot of the time now. I have trouble holding books. I haven’t even tried to write anything. I keep trying to tell my hands not to shake, but they won’t stop. At least I know why I had really bad tremors for almost two years. Apparently, it really wasn’t a brain tumor or something up in my head…it was just my stupid lithium. 😡

    And you can’t magically condemn us and say we’re not Christians. The only entity that can make that distinction is God. So, by making yourself out to be the best little Christian there is and a total know-it-all, arem’t you taking on the role of God? Aren’t you passing judgment on us just because we don’t adhere to what you consider to be the “Christian way”?

    Also, stop treating people on here like we’re idiots. You imply that you know better than us, and that’s rude.

    I get what you’re saying. And you, I agree with. 🙂

    I haven’t tried that. My mom took it for a while, but I don’t know what her reaction was to it.

    Lithium does that to you? I have been taking it for years and it never does that to me. Weird. I guess different people have different side effects. Lithium is the one medicine that I don’t think I have any side effects from.

    I always sleep with my dogs 🙂

    Yeah, it’s actually one of the common side effects, but not everyone has it. I don’t think my mom has it happen with her and she’s taken lithium a few times in her life, including right now.

    Oh I don’t know.. if we took everything from the Bible literally we’d still allow slavery and beating of women and various other things deemed socially unacceptable now.

    The Bible IS full of parables… whether you want to agree with me or not. It’s just a matter of fact.. not of my opinion.
