    Joshua Feurstein (spelling?) has lost his sh-t again, this time over McDonald's displaying a rainbow on their fry boxes. This is the same "Christian" who lost his sh-t over Starbucks red Christmas cup.

    So in his mind... "poverty, homelessness, hunger, visiting the sick and those in prison? Nah man, forget about that. I'm ****ed off that McDonald's has a rainbow on their fry boxes!"

    ACT! For America was met with counter-protesters. In Chicago, the counter protest outnumbered ACT.

    I don't quite understand why the Catholic Church has refused to come around on gay rights, given its long history of protecting priest-on-boy criminal rights.
    You'd think the Catholic women priests would speak up.

    But yeah, I'd like to ask for forgiveness from them, because I was sure I'd be met with nothing but judgment. Instead, everyone has been kind and accepting so far....

    They only forgave the Jews in about 1960 for killing Christ. They'll catch up on gender choice in around the year 3300.

    They showed Hand in Hand in class, during my mom's time in Catholic school. In hindsight, she's convinced they did it to foster improved relations with the Jews after centuries of hate.

    I'd never heard of that. From the synopsis I think it was created by a writer on acid.

    Michael O'Malley, rushes to his priest to tearfully inform him that he has accidentally killed his closest friend, Rachel Mathias. The story is told in flashback as Michael recounts their friendship, when he first befriended Rachel by hurrying her away from a group of schoolboys who were verbally bullying her on the playground. They quickly become the best of friends. The young children decide to become "blood brothers" by pr-cking their fingers and rubbing the blood together. They set off for an adventure, hoping to go to London to visit the queen, but instead are picked up by a kindly elderly lady who takes them to her home for tea, pretending that she is a princess and that her mansion is one of the queen's homes, but that the queen is currently away. Her amiable deception goes over perfectly, and the children have a great time visiting with her.

    Michael and Rachel are aware that they go to church on different days and their religions are somewhat different, but they do not ponder the specifics. However, when a somewhat overbearing and destructively-outspoken classmate informs Michael that Rachel is Jewish and that "the Jews killed Christ", an outraged Michael rushes to Rachel at their clubhouse and angrily confronts her, "Why did you kill Christ?" Rachel is shocked and insistently denies it: "I didn't kill him. I don't even know him." Michael and Rachel conclude that God is angry at them for becoming friends, but they are not sure if He will forgive them. They decide to attend church with each other to see if God is mad at them, believing they will die if He does not want them to go to each other's church. Michael sneaks into the synagogue with Rachel the next Saturday and is somewhat puzzled and intimidated by the ceremony, but he stays and seems to like it as time goes on, especially after a kindly rabbi shows him a passage in the Torah that speaks of God's love shielding him from all fear. The next day, Rachel goes with Michael to his church, and while Rachel is initially somewhat unnerved by the services and statues, she too feels more comfortable after a while.

    Having concluded it is acceptable to God that they remain friends, Michael and Rachel decide to take an inflatable raft on the Thames River for their next adventure, a trip to Africa. All goes well at first as Michael paddles and the raft drifts leisurely and makes smooth ripples on the calm water, but then when the raft enters a dangerous area of the river with a swifter flow and strong rapids, Michael loses control of the raft, and Rachel is knocked overboard. Due to the stronger current and the riverbank's dense underbrush in which Rachel has become entangled, Michael has great difficulty reaching Rachel, but at last pulls her out of the river; however, she is limp and unresponsive. Fearing the worst, Michael frantically rushes to get help, and adults in the area call for an ambulance. The film then returns to the present moment with Michael in his grief-stricken state, and telling the priest that he's killed Rachel. The priest comforts him and tells him that Rachel may be all right, and then accompanies him to Rachel's home to see how she is. They are met at the front door by Rachel's rabbi who is leaving, and he informs them that Rachel has pulled through and is recovering well, but that perhaps it would be better to wait till tomorrow to visit her. Michael, immensely relieved, rushes home happy that his little friend is alive, and the priest and the rabbi --- acknowledging that their respective religions hold more in common than they may have realized before --- speak warmly to each other before walking away in different directions.
    I remember my mother telling me that when she was in all girl Catholic school the nuns told them they should not have non-Catholic boyfriends because God did not approve of marriage to non-Catholics so anything that happened would be "blasphemy." This on top of all the rabid anti-sexuality and misogyny severely f-cked up several generations of Catholic girls.

    Southern Baptist convention this week, and there was a resolution brought up that would condemn white supremacy and the alt-right. It caused chaos.

    https://www.theatlantic.com/politics...remacy/530244/

    Also, participants were uneasy about condeming slavery...

    Then again, the Southern Baptists thought that Aladdin in the movie said "good little girls take off their clothes." **** them.

    Huh. I had no idea that never happened. When the supposed kerfuffle happened, I was attending the Salvation Army church and there was talk about "standing with our Southern Baptist brothers."
