This is what happens when perverts write elementary school text books

This is a book for fourth graders. FOURTH. GRADERS. It puts them about age 9. Are you KIDDING me? Who thinks this is a good idea?

Neighbors, friends, fellow citizens: listen to my plea. We must find some common ground. We must be a country again; a people; a culture. Our civilization is doomed if we cannot search through the fog and the confusion and find in that mist some semblance of a thread to bind us all. We are supposedly a Union, are we not?

So let me make the first attempt. Let me prove that unity is possible, by pointing to just a few topics upon which all decent, civilized, rational people can agree.

Here we go:

1) Bacon is delicious. Bacon is a cultural phenomenon. Despite our differences, we all love bacon. It really seems like everyone is on the same page here… Except for the vegetarians, but they aren’t Americans, technically.

2) The Princess Bride is a fantastic film.

Equality

Here’s my 2 cents on the “big issue” at hand. We (as a society) have made a mockery of marriage. Divorce is as prevalent in the church as out. Celebs marry and divorce as often as the rest of us redecorate the house. Calling it a “sacred covenant,” therefore becomes laughable. So since I still believe that marriage between 1 man and 1 woman is God’s design (and nowhere does the Bible call for any kind of officiating “ceremony”), take the word “marriage” away from all of us… We all have civil unions. And get out of the church. Until you are successfully married, say, 20 years (or maybe 30 or 40 or 50), the word marriage isn’t yours to use. Keep it sacred. Keep it special. Reclaim the meaningfulness of it. I’d give up MY right to have “marriage” in order to put it back in its place as a sacred, God-ordained, covenant.

I *don’t* lose people

What does it take to please people?  Am I addicted to pleasing people?

I don’t think so.  But I do not like to lose people, and I really hate for misunderstandings to burn bridges.  But there are some people who insist on misunderstanding.  They are looking for an excuse to drop me.  Why do I fight that?

Because I do not like to lose people.  No matter how tenuous a connection, the people from my past (friends, classmates, boyfriends, lovers, etc) have been in my life for a reason, and I resist letting them go.  Not that I have intimate contact with them, but we remain connected by a thread, which can be tugged at any time if opportunity beckons.  And I don’t mean opportunity to engage a relationship, per se, but a visit, a phone call… whatever.  I am there for my friends who need me.

So, being faced today with a friend who is so angry and bitter and stubborn that he insists on quitting me… hurts.

But I have to remember… all my attempts at communication are rebuffed.  HE is the one being silent and dark.  He is the one who runs and hides.  He is the one who dangles friendship like a string before a kitten.  And makes out like *I* have been the problem all along in myriad ways.  Makes me feel/sound desperate.  Makes me feel/sound crazy.  I am neither.

I am still here for the friendship.  But I am not running after it any longer.

But I really dislike the feeling of being misunderstood.  In this case, explaining things will not help.  He is bound and determined to pigeon hole me as a crazy bitch, and my efforts will only confirm that in his eyes.

But I don’t like to lose people.
