May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.

why I don't do haunted houses etc.

disclaimer: I'm writing this from a christian perspective and don't mean to tell people what to do, that's their choice.
I feel as though people think I'm a prude. But I can't help what goes on in my spirit when things like this come up. I claim to be a Christian and I feel haunted houses and most of what comes with halloween is based on death, evil, and the categorizing of said things as entertaining. This is a contradiction I can't resolve.
the same goes for movies with this content. Any kind of zombie, bloody, slasher/survivor movie or video game makes me ill. I don't simply mean that it's not my thing. I mean that it disturbs me. It disturbs me that someone could put these things in their mind and claim to be a Christian. What do you honestly have to do to your mind before it just doesn't recognize horror violence and gore as disturbing? I don't think you need to "try it out" to find out if it's not good. Go to a christian review website like and be warned there.  

Thanks that's all.

Global warming nazis.

So this disgusting video came to my attention today. I thought I would post it along with an outrageous comment by someone in support of it and my reply to get it out of my read if you want.
(I can't bring myself to watch the blowing up part [it was described to me] so I don't know what it's like exactly--just be warned it's on there.)

Comment from a viewer:
             "So I'm guessing none of these people has ever gone to see an overly violent comedy or action film at the theaters huh? Gimme a break! I'm so outraged...whatever!
maybe they should have shown those kids melting from record high temperatures, or dying of thirst because of extended droughts...hmmm, would that be outrageous?
yeah - it was little over the top, but I bet most of those outraged people see more violence than this in the movies every week."

My reply:

            "Ok, I just had to reply, sorry. The way I see it is 1) Depicting kids "melting from record high temperatures" or "dying of thirst because of extended droughts" is very different from depicting someone deliberately BLOWING PEOPLE UP BECAUSE they don't agree to bow to your agenda. Very different. Nazis, anyone? Does this video mean they were serious about carrying that out? No, [not necessarily :P ] but this is in extremely poor taste.

2) You say, "I'm guessing none of these people have ever gone to see an overly violent comedy or action film at the theaters?" And there I can agree with you in a sense, [that it would be hypocritical of said people]... I for one hate excessive violence in movies, it is in my personal opinion, disgusting, desensitizing and at the very least extremely unnecessary; can't understand why some people think it is fine.
I don't write this to taunt you-just bringing some things up. Thank you for reading."

I hate bad logic.
