My Mom Rocks

My Mother is perhaps the most faithful and devout Christian's I've ever known
She's the epitome of tolerance and Love...
She's also smart and won't ever let people misquote the bible for their own agenda...

We Had Jehova's witness come by and leave pamphlets...
Mom will bust out her mega sized Bible and totally blow whatever they have to say...

Mom says: They never quote the WHOLE SCRIPTURE... Just the sections they want to use

Here's Today's example:

The Jehova's Witness Pamphlet:
FALSE RELIGION
"TOLERATES IMMORAL SEX"

In Western lands, church groups ordain gay and lesbian members of the clergy and urge governments to recognize same-sex marraiges. Even churches that condemn immorality have tolerated relgious leaders who have sexually abused children. What, though, does the Bible teach? It plainly states: "Do not be misled, Neither fornicators, nor idolators, nor adulterers, nor men kept for unnatural purposes, nor men who lie with men... will inherit God's Kingdom" (1 Corinthians 6:9, 10) Do you know of religions that condone immoral sex?


What the Bible ACTUALLY STATES:
Corinthians 6:9, 10 Do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceieved, "Neither fornicators, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.


HOWEVER READ ONE MORE SCRIPTURE!
Corinthians 11
And such were some of you. But you were washed, but you were sanctified, but you were JUSTIFIED in the name of the Lord Jesus and by the Spirit of our God


See? Creative editing bends the truth to serve an agenda.
What Corinthians says quite PLAINLY... is you can be all of those things without condemnation if you have faith. Basically in a nutshell.

My mother will be the first person to fight for truth in religion and she will always, always shove the truth back into these people's faces when they come by the house.
She'll read their stuff... whip out the bible and point out how they are twisting the truth to server their own purposes.

My Mom is a true Christian. Tolerant, forgiving, faithful unto her own beliefs and will never shove her choices down your throat unless...
you show her FALSE RELIGIOUS Propaganda and then she'll bash you with with the full power of her truth.

WOOT!

Vernacular Misuse Pet Peeves

Vernacular Misuse Pet Peeves
Okay... I smell I rant coming on.

Vernacular Misuse: A.K.A. YOU SOUND LIKE AN UNEDUCATED IDIOT!

I'm not talking about colloquialisms and regional accents. I'm not talking about typos in written text.

I'm talking about people totally unable to speak their native tongue. (English)

These are things I hear all the time that drive me up a wall and make that little vein behind my eye twitch.

"I feel like a weight has been TOOKEN off my shoulders"

It' s TAKEN YOU RETARD! "Tooken" is not a word!

"We were conversating" "We conversate"

You were having a CONVERSATION and CONVERSING to CONVERSE is to speak! To TALK! Which you obviously can't do!

"He stoled that"

HE STOLE THAT!

"I have boughten/boughtted a new blouse"

You BOUGHT a new blouse! To BUY something in the past tense.

You went to BUY a blouse

You have BOUGHT a blouse. There is no past tense for Bought, it IS the past tense.

Things like this, total disregard for speaking your native language is an insult. Yet, I hear these things every day.

Especially on Shows Like "Judge Judy" and "The People's Court" I cringe, I cry, I want to throw things.

It's amazing how COMMON these phrases are and accepted!

These are not words you are speaking people. They aren't words at all in our language.

Please listen to yourselves and try not to sound like complete idiots when you speak.

If you said those things in a Job interview with me? I'd not hire you.

Why?Because you sound uneducated and like a dolt and it gives me theimpression you have not the brain capacity to think so why would Iwaste my time on you?

Language is so very important, communication defines you.

For instance... I know I cannot say the word "anonymity" ... I cannot wrap my tongue around it. I've tried, I've practiced. I've failed miserably to say this word,

So, instead of saying: "He wishes to retain is anonymity" I CHOOSE CONSCIOUSLY TO REPHRASE into something I can say:

"He wishes to remain anonymous."

I can say "anonymous" so I choose to sound EDUCATED and speak properly.

It's not that difficult. But everyday... I hear speech patterns that make me want to go postal.

So what gets your goat?
