A personal blog dealing with what it is like living with a disability and being an amputee

Some of the things I scored this week at the flea market this week. Antlers, old leather medical bag, creepy painting of a baby, old and complete first aid kit, some mini books, mini tintype photos, original quarantine signs, model of a cell, and a old dressform. Gonna start an online store to sell things from my collection and my flea market finds

Anonymous asked: If you take the word of a random monk more seriously than that of an actual christian you really have no understanding of how religion works.

crippledcuriosity:

First of all he wasn’t a random monk. Second of all he has studied the bible extensively for 15 years. Third I talked to a pastor as well a few years later and he said the same thing. And how is a monk not a Christian when he has studied the bible and lives by the bible? I’m sorry but that is way more than what an “actual Christian” does.

Christianity isn’t about preaching hate or judging others. That is one of the first things you learn in Sunday school. If you are using the bible in that way, and to deny rights and freedoms to a group of people, then you aren’t really a Christian.

Anonymous asked: I didn't quite understand what the monk said about the bible not mentioning homossexuality. If he meant to say men shouldn't oppress other men like men oppressed women, why would BOTH men in such a situation be an abomination? I'm an atheist, but I'd really like to discuss about this with my christian friends who think homossexuality is a sin (I disagree). It would be a relief to know the bible doesn't actually disapprove of gay people, since this book has such an influence on millions of people

Only in newer versions of the bible does the word abomination appear, and even so, it was thought that it was wrong, because you would be treating another man, who is equal to you, as if he was property.

kernalmustache asked: You met a monk at a party?

Yea I did. It wasn’t like a frat party or anything. We would host a New Year’s Eve party at our warehouse art collective/studio so was more of like an art exhibit/open house type thing. Have mutual friends and has been someone I would have really interesting conversations with.

And it upsets me that as I record this video #wewillalwayssupportyoujustin is trending on twitter. I wish all the people who were tweeting that right now would be forced to send a tweet to explain to Katie’s family in 140 characters or less why they would quote always support someone who would do something as fundamentally selfish as driving drunk.

I don’t even know who this man is, but his tweet spoke to me; so I’m posting it here.

seriously fuck everyone who drives drunk

People need to stop making excuses for him. He knows what he’s doing.


Well said. I lost my leg and brother to a drunk driver and it pisses me off that people are trying to justify what Justin Beiber did as not that bad. His fans and supporters make me loose faith in humanity.
