open-minds

Do Goths have to be Christian, Satanist or something like that?

One can be any religion one chooses? Goths come from all over the world, there are no religious requirements, except an open mind to and acceptance of other faiths.

Wait did George actually come out and say he was gay or what like I'm seeing tweets and junk but Idk...

Based on his actions & tweets a lot of people have come to a conclusion he’s bisexual, he hasn’t openly admitted to anything (or made any official statements) but I think he’s a very open minded guy & I totally dig that ♡

i really hope youre black considering the n word you used..

Woah Woah Woah Woah!!!!

First off, let me just say I have no problem with people who don’t use the word “nigger”. I am open minded like that. It may not be your thing, and that’s totally cool. It doesn’t make you a bad person by not saying the word nigger. I’ve known a few people who didn’t and they were perfectly normal people.

BUT where I draw the line is when those people feel the need to shove their opinions down other people’s throats. You do realize our ancestors used the word nigger? I mean…you are aware of this right? You do understand that when people do something for a long time, you shouldn’t have to think about it in the slightest, and continue to do as they did…..correct? You understand?

Do you have any idea how many people would lose their jobs if the world wasn’t racist? The numbers would be staggeringly astronomical. Think about all the confederate flag makers who would be out on the street. Think about the people who make clothes for the KKK? They would go hungry!!! I bet you didn’t think about that. I swear…..I thought non-racists were supposed to be kind and loving people……and here you are saying WORDS to me. I guess I was wrong.

Besides I hardly ever do it anymore. I’ve got it down to maybe two times a week. Sorry, I can’t be an all or nothing extremist like you are. Some of us believe in moderation. Besides my racism is the happy, humane type. You ever see All In The Family? Remember Archie Bunker? See what I mean….happy racism. In fact, I once knew a racist who DID NOT spit on a Mexican when they saw one, so don’t go painting racists all with the same brush. That’s intolerance where I come from. 

BTW…..did you know it’s IMPOSSIBLE to be 100% non-racist. Did you know that you probably drove on a street that was once cleared by slaves? YEP that’s right!! Since you drove on that road, other people can be as racist as they want to be and there’s nothing you can do about that because that would make you a gigantic hypocrite for driving on a road. 

Also, not everybody has the willpower to be non-racist. If somebody wants to yell “NIGGER”, they could just be listening to their body. You may be able to not yell “NIGGER”, but that doesn’t mean everybody else can. For all you know they may not have the blood type to keep their mouth shut. We are all on our own separate journeys, and you gotta respect that.

I once knew a guy who knew a guy who told him a story about another guy who had a brother who had a pen pal that stopped being racist…..and then BAM!!!! A car accident killed him. Coincidence? I don’t think so. You see….so it may not even be healthy for all we know. He went non-racist overnight too!!! It’s dangerous to make such radical changes.

Anyway, morality is subjective. There really is no way of knowing whether treating other beings like shit just because they were born differently from you is right or wrong. I don’t think the science is in yet.

FAQ About Demons

Aren’t demons Evil?

Some of them probably but not all of them are. They have different morals sure, but that doesn’t make them evil.

How can you be sure you can trust demon spirits?

How can you be sure you can trust any other kind of spirit? With spirit work there is always going to be suspicion and you shouldn’t give just any spirit your trust but don’t distrust them for what they are. Distrust actions not species

Do crosses hurt demons?

Symbols only have the power you give them and a cross by itself does not have any special demon warding powers. Think of it like sigils or any other symbol. 

Are all demons dark arts?

Most of them are but not all of them. There are a few species of demon that are classified as white arts and there are definitely some grey arts demons.

Tips for working with demons?

  • Keep and open mind
  • remember their morals are different then ours
  • Respect them
  • Just like with any other spirit , use caution
  • Treat them like any other spirit you would work with
  • Don’t treat them like they are evil

Where do you get your demon companions?

Nowhere, they show up on their own. Demons attract demons, if you work with one more are likely to show up, some of them will want to stay. Thats how it is with most spirits though, it’s like opening a door that you can’t really close

Do demons hate christians?

They don’t hate christians but they aren’t big fans of christianity. Seeing as it paints all demons as evil creatures. 

What kind of demon would you recommend for beginners?

I’ve been told a lot of people start off with hellhounds

Demons for beginners to avoid working with?

Masquerade demons, Incubus/Succubus , Hellcats, Any sort of warrior class demon like generals or commanders.

Just some questions I have gotten a lot over the past few days and I am tired of answering. If you have any questions that aren’t answered here feel free to send me an ask or message me

First lemmie just say that if being a different religion offends you and if you don’t believe in ‘our lord and Savior Jesus Christ’ you are automatically acum, then hop the fuck off my blog.

*Inhale*

This has happened a repeated number of times over the years with manager who I know professionally and personally. I’ve known them since I was in elementary school and they have constantly judged me, bullied me and ridiculed me as a person because of one simple thing: I am wiccan. Not a Christian denomination.

I’m a very open hearted and open minded person when it comes to belief. And I have my ways of being close to the essence of 'god’ in ways that are different than going to church every Sunday. Their beliefs and ideas of sin and virtue don’t agree with my ideas, so I don’t follow the 'light of 'god’ or however you want to translate it. I believe in myself, and I believe that there is a force in the universe which guides us and flows through and around us. Humans may shape it into the form of different gods and give it different names, but it’s all the same essence that exists through the universe. That’s how I see things.

Now my manager, let’s call her Celeste, she has told me numerous times that I am going to hell. And it’s been getting old after a while where I just joke along and say “haha, hell yeah” and such. She has also gotten her little gang of coworkers that are a part of her little clique and they have done the same to me. They make fun of me for my sexuality, my choice of style, and my disabilities. They have bullied a homosexual coworker to the point of quitting before. But today she just really got under my skin…

I came in, went to the back, dropped off my stuff and tried to find the chart assigning everyone where in the store. When I could find it I asked her, in context of where i was assigned, 'where am I going?’. To which she replied “…to hell if you don’t change your ways..”. I just got sick and tired of all this; so I told her AND showed her on the legal right to work poster that it is illegal for her to say that to me. And of course she didn’t believe me or the poster. It didn’t even matter to her that I told her I was offended, she still was rude about it.

I’m going to talk to my general manager and district manager tomorrow if they hopefully come by and make a complaint. I just hope she stops. I’m sick of biting my own tongue…

Pen Pal(s) wanted :)

My name is Rachelle, I’m 14 going into grade 9 and I live in Canada. I love art and I like to draw and paint. I also like to make jewellery (chokers, bracelets…), write poems from time to time and play guitar (well I’m learning). I also like to read, I'm not a book worm but I like to read classics like The Scarlet Letter. I love music and I often listen to 70s 80s and 90s subgenres of rock (grunge, punk, alt…) I don’t really like listening to current music but I do keep an open mind. My favorite band is Nirvana but I also listen to: Hole, Sex pistols, Veruca Salt, Alice in chains, the Beatles…etc 

Ideal pen pal:

Girl/Boy/Other doesn’t matter, Has same taste in music and can introduce me to other artists/bands, friendly, kind, artistic in any way, any country, in my age group (not over 17), prefers snail mail!, honest, maybe exchange CDs and art or something…, open minded, can talk about anything and everything. (You don’t have to have ALL these qualities)

I’m ok with any sexuality, race and gender identity :)

I can read, write, and speak French.

 Pls email me first if you would like to use snail mail :)

PS: don’t judge me for my lame email address I made it up when I was 11 :(

Instagram: @whatever.ooo ( I don’t post much)

anonymous asked:

just wondering but do u believe in a religion? :)

Well, fellow anony… I think you just hit the jackpot, because this is one of my favorite subjects to talk about! Even though, it is indeed a delicate topic, as we all have our different points of view on this matter, so I will tell you merely about what I believe in, while still respecting any other peoples beliefs as well!

First of all, I consider myself an agnostic, as I think that the human being doesn’t have enough knowledge to be sure about whether there truly exists a God or not. This is more of a doctrine, rather than a religious belief. Nonetheless, I do like to keep an open mind to any possibility, without saying for sure that a certain religion (or lack of it) is the right thing to believe in.

Despite all of this, I do consider myself as a quite spiritual person, since there are other things I believe in, such as the existence of spiris/auras/etc… I’m very drawn to any type of occult subjects and have been recently studying topics, such as tarot/palmistry/astrology.

I also find some concepts of Buddhism to be very interesting, for example: Karma, Chakras and Reincarnation. And, to me, some of them do make a lot of sense.

Overall, I do have my theories and I love to search and study more about them, but, once again, these are all unknown things for men. Which, for me, is great, since not knowing everything and constantly seeking for knowledge is what makes life fun.

Send me questions about anything and everything! Let’s all get to know each other better ~

Or rather… Dedicate them to someone.  Vi’s girlfriend K.  She has been an incredibly pleasant force to be around.  Patient and kind.  And has let me borrow her girl a lot lately.  😏 Of course the feminist in me knows that Vi has options and belongs to no woman,  But it’s also nice to know that your partner is both open minded and understanding…supportive.  My own husband has become quite a bit of…

Bearing a Lesson Part 6

Part 1 Part 2 Part 3 Part 4 Part 5

They settled into lotus, facing each other. Qui-Gon held out his hands, palms up, and Obi-Wan set his much smaller hands on top. They settled into a light trance and Qui-Gon reached out and knocked gently on Obi-Wan’s shields.

There was a moment of hesitation and then Obi-Wan opened his mind with such ease and trust that it took Qui-Gon’s breath away.

Obi-Wan was sitting in the usual spot in the meditation garden trying to ignore the fact that he was not meeting Master Yoda.

He was so tired. Every time he closed his eyes he saw flashes from blasters and lightsabers. His soul ached from all the death that hadn’t happened. And he missed Anakin- Anakin who wasn’t even born.

He just wanted it to all go away so that he could sleep and then wake up in the creche and play with Bant and Garen and Reeft.

A sound from the entrance brought his head whipping up to see Qui-Gon Jinn looking at him with an unreadable expression on his face.

Mother, Adult Son Fight For Right To Incestuous Relationship
A mother and adult son charged with incest in New Mexico are going public with their relationship, saying they are willing to go to jail to fight for the “right” to be together.

Weber said this case points to a societal breakdown of logic and reason. People who oppose Mares and Peterson’s relationship are “holding onto a vestige of conscience and moral judgment in some areas,” but if pushed, Weber said, they often “can’t pinpoint why they are holding that view.”

Edward Feser gave us 5 stages to describe the evolution of progressive politics in this country.

Stage 1: “Oh please. Only a far-right-wing nutjob would make such a paranoid and ridiculous accusation - I suppose next you’ll accuse us of wanting to poison your precious bodily fluids!”

Stage 2: “Well, I wouldn’t go as far as X. All the same, it’s good to be open-minded about these things. I mean, people used to think ending slavery was a crazy idea too…”

Stage 3: “Hey, the Europeans have had X for years and the sky hasn’t fallen. But no, I admit that this backward country probably isn’t ready for X yet.”

Stage 4: “Of course I’m in favor of X - it’s in the Constitution! Only a far-right-wing nutjob could possibly oppose it.”

Stage 5: “You have the right to remain silent. Anything you say can be used against you in a court of law…”

We were at stage 1 during the gay marriage debate, but quick game way to stage 4/5.  I’m guessing we are now at stage 2 when it comes to incestuous relationships.  Given recent experience, and given that pretty much all of the arguments for gay marriage also support incestuous marriage, I fear we see legal recognition of incestuous marriages before the end of the decade.  People will actually be called bigots (which has basically evolved to hold the same function for modern progressives as the n-word did for certain white Americans in the Jim Crow era) because they don’t approve of relationships like the one in this story.
