Yes, I said it. Jesus was an alcoholic. Don’t act like it never crossed your mind. Blasphemous, you say? Maybe. But am I wrong?
Let’s think about this for a minute. Jesus turned water into wine. Perfectly good, drinkable water—turned into wine. I get called an alcoholic for much, much less. So, while it’s probably a good thing I don’t have the power to turn my tap into a never-ending fountain of Merlot(that really pisses me off), I was gifted with a semi-perfectly working brain and the critical thinking skills necessary to ask this: why? Why?!? And after the God awful election last year, I’ve been asking that question…ALOT! Trying to make sense of it all and trying to navigate this world that Donald J Trump has inherited. Still trying to cope after last November’s clusterf*ck!
In case you haven’t guessed, I’m one of those bleeding heart liberals you parents warned you about! However, I am not staunch, fringey or radical. I’m just liberal in my philosophies. Some are negotiable…some are not. My primary nonnegotiable is “People over Property”. And I believe in a woman’s right to chose…I know you’re thinking “how can you reconcile that?” Easily, no one has the right to dictate what another does with his/her body. Least of all a bunch of old guys who can’t even explain a woman’s menstrual cycle. It’s a very hard soul searching decision when a woman finds herself having to make it. I won’t question her motives or her right to do what is best for her life. I respect Pro-lifers as I do Pro-Choice. Love them all but hate how neither side doesn’t see the others point of view. If you’re a Pro-lifer, simply don’t have an abortion; and vice versa. Same with Marriage Equality: If you’re against it just don’t marry someone of the same sex, don’t discriminate against them, and don’t blame their for ruining marriage(if they cause problems in YOUR marriage, by simply being happy then it’s really not them…it’s you partner or dare I say YOU!) Ijs.
Wow! You’re still reading this?! Thanks! And Welcome to my sacrilegious, unrepentant blog. Despite the title, I believe in A God and my blog’s raison d’être is not to prove that Jesus was an alcoholic (but he sure loved the stuff). Here, I raise questions about current events, daily life, politics, and other things that leave me scratching my head and do my best to answer them. And I would especially like to hear your views on the various topics.
I’m a nurse by profession. Love what I do! But, I’ve found that in order to have a well-rounded life and to release the immense stress; I could dabble in blogging.
I hope you enjoy this as much as I know I will. So, pour yourself a nice glass wine and engage…or don’t…it’s up to you. All I ask is that you be respectful to me and others who visit and post their thoughts. Now with no further ado, let’s get this thing started and see how it goes!
P.S. If you’re a member of the grammar police….bugger off! By the time I get time to do these blogs, I’m usually on my 3rd glass of the drink of the gods…wine! But if you get my point you’re an absolute genius!
