Reflections

Everyone has had their nice day with family meals and baskets and eggs and candy. 

I’d like to reflect for a bit. 

I know, I am preaching to the choir. The folks who read this are going to nod in agreement with most pieces. Those who actually need to see it, the Fox sect, never will. And even if they did, biases will make them deny it all. But it’s bothering me and I need to get it out. 
Lots of folks today claim they’re celebrating the rising of Jesus from the dead. They say the celebrate him and all he’s done and they want to live like him and follow his teachings. 

I live in the Bible belt. I see this on the daily. Bumper stickers: “Pro life. Pro God. Pro gun.” Ummm…One of these things is not like the other. Do you not know that guns are the stark opposite of life? 

Of course you don’t. Because you pick what you want to hear from Fox news and believe what you choose to believe. 

To clarify: I’m not anti-Jesus. I’m not anti-Christian. I’m anti-fundamentalist. I’m anti-asshole. 

Why a hypocrite?

The portraits done go against the x commandment. Also, they were done by Italian Renaissance painters, who painted life as they knew it not as it was. J-man was not Italian. 

Yup. 

They woukd put him on the other side of their wall, as they would consider him the other and fear he would take away their now-automated factory job. 

The close-minded us vs them nationalism has got to stop. The hiding behind a book has his to stop. The hate has got to stop. 

If you’re pro-life, then you provide from birth to death. You put resources towards your people, all of your people. You fund the next generation. You look at the big picture and you follow love. 

Rant over. Tomorrow we return to our regularly scheduled Witchy mama stuff.

Much like Christmas, we celebrate the secular holiday of Easter. 

We have baskets filled with goodies, we find plastic eggs filled with goodies. 

We also celebrated Ostara on the day of the equinox. Since Easter is late this year, it was difficult to put the two holidays together, the way we are able to do with Yule and Christmas. 

For all of us in the Northern hemisphere, we are celebrating re-birth. The parable of Jesus rising after three days. The spring returning and flowers coming back to life. Animals coming out from hibernation. Beginning of growth on local farms.
