Hatred in Uganda Justified with Christianity

I have nothing against the Christian faith. I love the people who follow and believe in it. I love the people who actually follow its messages of love, compassion, and help for all mankind.

This video shows, however, the dark side of the Christian religion (as there are sides to all religions) and the hateful acts that some people in the world use Christianity as an excuse or justification for.

I don’t understand why people must jump to hatred in the face of a problem that does not exist. Homosexuals are not pedophiles and do not have a master agenda to take over the Christian civilization as Scott Lively suggests. People say he has the right to say what he wants. But he does not have the right to spread hatred through outright lies and do so under the pretense of love and protecting values. He is a hateful person and, in my mind, not a true Christian. That is all I see in him.

People like this, who use Christianity to justify hatred (including murder and life imprisonment) are the true threat to Christian society. I would be worried about them destroying all that is good in that religion.

After much world hype and denouncement of the bill, it was rejected in the form you see in this video, but is still under consideration by the government in Uganda and still includes the death penalty for repeat offenders or those with HIV.

Information on this was heavily in the news a few months ago, but now has fallen off considerably as news concentrates more on DADT and ENDA in the U.S. This problem in Uganda, however, has not gone away and is still extremely dangerous. And on the larger scale, the immense hatred that is being justified with Christianity is appalling and incredibly destructive towards the religions ideals.

We must not forget that this is still happening in the world so that we can remember to fight it.

Spread Love. Stop Hate.

What do you think?

The full post, including a photo, is on my tumblog and can be seen here.

I received this comment on my video “Purple Nail Polish= Fail” a couple of days ago. I had several thoughts. First, I was taken aback. Second, I was pleased. Third, I was a little upset. I stayed with this last feeling for this reasoning: From my view point I was presenting more as a boy than a girl in that particular video (as far as physical appearence). Only my shoulders and above were showing, so maybe I am mistaken and I was presenting a lot more like a female than I thought. But, I think this comment was actually more based in the fact that I (presenting more as a boy) was talking about nail polish. And this confused the person. Anyway, I am a mix of emotions on it.

What do you think about it?

And as an after-thought, neither of this persons’ guesses as to type of nail polish were correct. Just sayin’

Blah Blah Blah (Not the song)

So just some boring stuffage followed by some stuffage that is maybe only interesting to me. Enjoy!

I have resurrected my tumblelog. I got rid of it before because I could not figure out several things and did not want to put the time in to fix them. I have now (well sort of). I am still keeping this one, which will be for more in-depth thoughts and longer text posts. My tumblr will be an in-between blog-thing bigger than Twitter, but smaller than this blog. It is easy for me to share pictures, videos, quotes, links, and small posts there (and because I am lazy this means I will update it more often). However, I like blogger for longer text posts and, as of right now, I have not figured out an easy comment system on Tumblr, so posts that I put more heart into (that I wish to have comments on) will be posted here.

So, yes, if you like the plentiful updates of Twitter but want a little more, follow me on Tumblr.

In other news, well, there isn't really anything. For some reason I feel the need to write this now: I have recently been working on a "confessions" letter of sorts. Basically, it is a note to the closest of my friends explaining and simply just informing them of the terrible things that have happened to me this last semester and a half. I just felt they deserved to know, since I have failed as a friend to them for a while and have not talked to them

I am working on talking to people about my real problems. I usually deal with them myself and lock it all away. At the same time, however, I usually try and act like I confide in people and ask them for help. To do this I usually talk at length about issues that really aren't bugging me as much as I let on. I tell people what I want to tell them, for the responses I wish to get. I am working around this now; I have repaired it a lot with members of my family, but I have really only truly confided in and told the situation to one of my friends.

Anyway, I have this letter almost ready, but now I am struggling to send it. Sometimes I want to more than anything. Other times I see how difficult other peoples' lives are at the moment and I do not want to make things worse, so I want to keep it to myself. Eventually I will send it to them. I just don't want to bother them or make them think that I am just complaining to get attention. I do very much miss my wonderful friends, however, and feel that I am the farthest from all of them (and everyone) that I have ever been.

You probably didn't need to read that.

Oh, I have also decided that I would like to start tracking and documenting many of the mood changes I go through. They seem to tell so much about me, and recently have been changing drastically and often. I am not sure how to chronicle such things though. Dilemma.

C*Nicole Loves You!

Purple Nail Polish = Fail

It's true. I was very disappointed. If you find me some purple nail polish that works wonderfully, well, then you'd be wonderful.

Part of Your World (C*Nicole Style!)

I am video happy. Here is me, yet again, making a fool of myself on camera. I've only ever wanted to be a Disney princess. So, yes. This is what happens :)


If you make a video for me singing a song (ANY SONG) I will pretty much love you forever. Send it to me somehow! :)
