I wish I could watch America’s Next Top Model without a fucking “BACON! Special sauuuucceee! Chicken!” McDonald’s commercial at every ten minutes. I don’t want to see that shit. Give me the gatorade commercial about sweat over and over again instead.
I’m too lazy to look up streaming somewhere else other than cwtv.com.
So I saw a commercial for a TV show called Jane the Virgin who obviously is a virgin and her doctor somehow accidentally inseminated her (during her pap I’m guessing?) so now she’s pregnant.
I know! Let’s sue the shit out of that doctor and buy an island somewhere. But no, instead all it’s about is “I’m not ready to be a mother but I’ll do this anyway!” Why is this a tv show? The fuck CW? o.O
This is an enormous chain and I’m sorry, but I need to say this:
The laws in the Old Testament were set forth by god as the rules the Hebrews needed to follow in order to be righteous, to atone for the sin of Adam and Eve and to be able to get into Heaven. That is also why they were required to make sacrifices, because it was part of the appeasement for Original Sin.
According to Christian theology, when Jesus came from Heaven, it was for the express purpose of sacrificing himself on the cross so that our sins may be forgiven. His sacrifice was supposed to be the ultimate act that would free us from the former laws and regulations and allow us to enter Heaven by acting in his image. That is why he said “it is finished” when he died on the cross. That is why Christians don’t have to circumcise their sons (god’s covenant with Jacob), that is why they don’t have to perform animal sacrifice, or grow out their forelocks, or follow any of the other laws of Leviticus.
When you quote Leviticus as god’s law and say they are rules we must follow because they are what god or Jesus wants us to do, what you are really saying, as a Christian, is that Christ’s sacrifice on the cross was invalid. He died in vain because you believe we are still beholden to the old laws. That is what you, a self-professed good Christian, are saying to your god and his son, that their plan for your salvation wasn’t good enough for you.
So maybe actually read the thing before you start quoting it, because the implications of your actions go a lot deeper than you think.
This is a theological point that doesn’t come up often enough.

"It’s hard to kind of find something that was… that had the balance of being not too animal, and yet, not kind of human… And be able to be quite subtle ‘bout it and suggest things. So it was quite hard to do that and quite hard work to do that cuz you find out the way to do it by jumping around and running about." - Alan Cumming on Kurt’s movements
