How to date, mate and relate. Mixing race, culture and creed.
Newsflash! Tanisha’s a JEW!!
After 50-11 different articles, studies, and research papers which have been published over the years showing that black Christian woman are a lonely bunch, we now have it straight from the horse’s mouth (i.e., “the good Christian man”): “I am not trying to find a wife in the church pew, second to the left, directly in front of the organist!”
In article titled “Why Won’t Christian Men Date Women Who Go To Their Church?”, Christy Krumm lays out the 5 reasons why Christian men don’t date women with whom they attend church.
So I’m driving back from a long weekend hippy convention and I’m listening to KFI AM 640 because it’s like blind people’s television. One of the stories is about an upcoming show, GCB (Good Christian Bellas/Bitches) on ABC. Ever the shite starter, presidential hopeful, Newt Gingritch said that this show is discriminatory against Christians, a religious group other religious (and nonreligious) group feel safe about bashing, whereas with say, Muslims, to create anything against Allah is grounds for a fatwa, beheading and stoning.
Iâ€™m sure after reading this some people will feel offended that I did not use words that make them feel good about their spiritual practices. And to that, I say, that you donâ€™t get extra points because you feel that your membership on â€œTeam Jesusâ€ deserves brownie points.
The U.S. is supposed to be ‘nation-building’ in Afghanistan; NATO forces are not scheduled to leave until 2014. One has to wonder what kind of nation the U.S. is building if after over 10 years in the country the citizens don’t hesitate to take to the streets chanting “Death to America” after what was ostensibly only an accident on the part of some US soldiers.
The oldest boy is going to be 13 this year. He hasnâ€™t hit The Change yet as far as I can tell, and as the product years of many years of Catholic socio-emotional sexophobic repression, I may never actually know. Definitive confirmation would require direct asking, which is something weâ€™re trained by the church specifically not to do. This is the same organization that brought you the concepts of â€œimpure thoughtâ€ and â€œthe occasion of sin.â€ Immorality begins at the conception of the idea. There are prophylactics in place, of course. I like to think of confession as a spiritual â€œmorning-after pill,â€ if you will, preventing the zygote of corruption from hatching into the blastocyst of wicked deed, but somehow I doubt the metaphor will make it into the official church brochures.
I received a phone call from a family member who regularly attends church. This person was calling to tell me about a recent event that had taken place in a church service he attended. Apparently, one of the pastors of the church has become so full of “the Spirit” that he fall out in church and appeared to be in the throes of a seizure. My family member became worried, rushed to the side of the man on the floor and attempted to rouse him from his febrile state. Some other members of the congregation told my family member to leave the pastor alone on the floor–just let him lie there; he would get up when he was ready.
