Delight yourself in the Lord and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Psalms 37:4 (via be-obscenee)

Well shit some priests dedicate their lives to god but they don’t ever get to have sex with children do they

(via banksypie725)

In the Catholic Church, they have a sacrament called confession which you may have seen in films or know about because of a distant relative. Basically, you go into a room and confess your wrongdoings to the priest, who is behind a curtain, so that you don’t have to look them in the face. The priest is bound to keep confidentiality with the people confession. This is both simultaneously great and awful because:

People who have done an illegal or malicious act, but have come to their senses and are feeling remorse for their actions, would be encouraged to seek council in confession, and talk it through with someone who will not immediately cast them in a negative light, and report them, but instead view them as a valuable human being. This can help them to find resolve in themselves and change their ways, sometimes even resulting in them turning themselves in peacefully.

HOWEVER

The priests are bound under oath and are unable to break confidentiality. This means that even if they know that a murdered body is buried in a specific location, they cannot tell anyone because the information was given to them via confession.

Over the years/decades, non-God-fearing serial rapists, have realized that they can weave their way into this non-threatening environment to gain access to children. By manipulation and determination, they work their way into a position of authority and respect, so that they have the ability to carry out their deeds, whilst nobody suspects that they would even be the type to do so. If any other priest or bishop looks as if they may be catching on to their scheme, they go and confess it to them, so that they are therefore bound by oath to not break confidentiality. If they are caught out by other members of the church, they get someone else in their seedy ring, who has managed to climb higher up to “relocate” them to another church, and sidestep the controversy altogether.

It’s horrifying that a thing that has such capacity to heal is being used by bad people to wound. And I’m glad that federal commissions are being done to dig these people out.

u walk in the theater and the lights dim, frozen comes on screen, u sit through the movie, it was so good, u get up to leave but the lights have not risen, frozen is starting over on the screen, u briskly make your way to the exit and the attendant shoves you back inside the theater, don’t you wanna see your movie? he says, you claw at the door as frozen repeats over and over again behind you, elsa telling you to just let it go, your tears turn into tiny snowflakes, on the 3rd day people are eating the theater cushions, you have given up any hope of escape, you sing along quietly for the 43rd time, let it go..let it goo…

why was 6 afraid of 7

Today I am going to tell you what I am most afraid of…. here we go.
>Be me
>Be about a 6/10
>Just move into a new neighborhood and have no friends
>Be outside mowing the lawn when random dog runs up to me
>Look up and a 9/10 is…

Plot twist:
> Police reveal girl’s real name was actually 1/10, and she had fooled everyone with a hat and an accent.

I want to bring something up to my followers right quick before I log off for the night.

These are some messages that showed up in a dear friend of mine’s inbox. They are in reference to a post about cisphobia specifically.

When you talk about cisphobia, and heterophobia, and claim it doesn’t exist and that majority members aren’t burdened with problems, I want you to remember this post.

These are messages sent specifically for her, to try and trigger her. Now, this particular friend of mine has survived more abuse and hardship than I care to recount, but needless to say, is one of the strongest people I know.

And over one single post, that wasn’t even on her blog to begin with, triggered this nonsense.

Take a good hard look at these. All of them degrade her for being cisgendered. Two of them claim she couldn’t possibly know anything about “struggling.” One is a rather graphic death threat. All over an immutable trait she cannot possibly have helped.

If the situation were reversed and her inbox were filled with “tranny scum fucktard” do you think I would even be having to post this? No. It would have blown up, nobody would have thought twice about it.

But you claim that this is “venting.” That being oppressed somehow grants you the right to be a special breed of hateful. That your struggle grants you the right to tell a self-harm recoverer that she ought to slit her throat, that her struggle is irrelevant.

This is what your movement has become. Take a good, hard look at your brand of “equality.” You should be ashamed of yourselves.
