Jesse Slayter - Thick (Foxsky Remix)
I’ve never really had a crush on Emma Watson, but oh my lord this portrait is stunning. Congratulations to her on becoming a UN Goodwill Ambassador.
"I’ve been a deep believer my whole life. 18 years as a Southern Baptist. More than 40 years as a mainline Protestant. I’m an ordained pastor. But it’s just stopped making sense to me. You see people doing terrible things in the name of religion, and you think: ‘Those people believe just as strongly as I do. They’re just as convinced as I am.’ And it just doesn’t make sense anymore. It doesn’t make sense to believe in a God that dabbles in people’s lives. If a plane crashes, and one person survives, everyone thanks God. They say: ‘God had a purpose for that person. God saved her for a reason!’ Do we not realize how cruel that is? Do we not realize how cruel it is to say that if God had a purpose for that person, he also had a purpose in killing everyone else on that plane? And a purpose in starving millions of children? A purpose in slavery and genocide? For every time you say that there’s a purpose behind one person’s success, you invalidate billions of people. You say there is a purpose to their suffering. And that’s just cruel."
I think I stay up until 3am every night because I’m searching for something, but I haven’t figured out what it is. All I know is that I haven’t found it yet.
My hero does it again. 2nd no-hitter against the Padres, and only 1 walk away from a perfect game. Easily the best game I’ve ever seen him pitch.
