Now I can hear some of you asking, but isn’t it okay, after all, it is a catholic school? But ask yourself, if a woman was teaching in a Catholic school, should it be okay if she gets fired for using birth control? I dare say most of us would say no. Hells, the Catholic Church has swept years of child sexual abuse under the rug while the priests, or as I like to call them, perps were still not only conduction mass but lining up alter boys for their new positions wherever they were sent to do God’s work. Yet a man who is is a committed and loving relationship with another man is going to taint the young minds of the graduates?
One of the thing that continually amazes me is that judgement is so much an issue in Christianity. I know I am no bible guru but isn’t judging supposed to be left up to God if you are a Christian, or Muslim, or fuck, any religion really. Isn’t it terribly arrogant to think you know what is in another’s heart? Let alone some supreme being that we are continuously told his goodness is such you cannot fathom it?
So I guess one big question is, how do you know when you are being intolerant of religion or too sensitive? I guess I personally want to pick another piece out of Leviticus and see if it would be reasonable to say… “Hey on Facebook he said he ate at Red Lobster last night. That abomination cannot talk to our children.” The funny thing is he could have written on Facebook about him hitting it with a different woman every night and not one word would have been said about it.
So a school chooses this moment to show it’s students what they think being Catholic is really about… Hate.
So there is a petition: http://www.change.org/petitions/sacred-heart-academy-mt-pleasant-mi-stop-endorsing-homophobia
Because no school should be telling their students that hate in the name of religion is okay. JMHO. I hope you all sign if you agree.
And A big Thank You to DCG. I would have missed this if you had not brought it to my attention.
And I know I did not make this to a U, fuck it, this was way more important.

Now I know not everything that seems a big deal to some people is a big deal to anyone else…. but some things cannot just be shrugged away.
Today my boss was interviewing for a grunt. You know someone who does all the grunt work (like me), but content to be just that. Anyway, this guy goes into his interview and starts to leave. “How did it go?” I asked.
“They asked me for a police check”, he seemed a little upset.
“They do that with everyone,” my co-worker assured him.
“Are they just checking for warrants, or like a full record?”
Most people I know have some record or another. Nothing to get put away for, usually a public drunkenness or possession charge. “So long as it’s not too bad you’ll be okay.”
“Oh, good,” he says. “Nothing really, just a few domestic violence charges.” He shrugs like it is nothing.
Really dude? THAT is no big deal to you? I’m thinking the main reason they do a police check is to weed out those who either are drug dealers or those with violence issues, especially among those with no voice to speak out. Oh, creepy, creepy, creepy. I think on to the next interview.

I hate moving. I love this place.
First day at the new Job yesterday. I’m going to pick up about 3 shifts a week. And I’m going to hate it. Don’t laugh, don’t you dare fucking laugh, but I have joined the “would you like fries with that” guild. Fuck, I hate it already. Boss is a cunt. Co-workers are actually okay for the most part, but revisit the boss being a cunt, which kind of makes it impossible to enjoy a moment of work. Oh, and customers are dicks.
Have a great fucking day.

So I figured we would be going to the club…. nope. He and Ali got together to throw a party, even had Jake there. I got ridiculously, sloppy drunk. It was so fun. We crashed at Ali’s place, but around 7A.M. he was ready to leave. (Bastard). So here I sit QUITE and utterly hungover. Do you think I can enjoy my hangover in peace? No. I have to work later. Oh well, at least my hangover was well earned:D

This is courtesy of a 9ish girl at Walmart. C and I are walking by the emergency exit as a little girl presses the lever, openning the door and sending off alarms everywhere. The little girl takes off like a bat out of hell down an aisle. We hear her parents: “Where’s Trina?” with suspicision high in their voice. She is one aisle over concentrating on the shelves with an impressive image of innocence, concentrating on the shelves in front of her.
“Trina, did you set off the alarm?”
“What alarm?” as the alarm was still blaring it was a poor bluff. “I’m just looking at the toilet seats. I’ve been here the WHOLE time.”
Canada: I think somewhere William Shatner has started a private school of acting, and Trina is his prize pupil.
