locusimperium:

I hope that the thrust of this woman’s blog post is already obvious to everyone who follows me, but this is comprehensive and compassionate enough that I would print out and give to parishioners if they asked me about doing a “Christian seder.”

Actually Jesus was gay and saw some cute guys and was like ‘nail me ;)’ but the Romans misinterpreted his flirtatious nature

The series, “Definitive Reincarnate” explores the physical beauty of God as represented in in popular visual culture in South India, be it in calendars or in films. The series is also about the beauty of God and how we imagine Him to be be. Since we have no idea what God would look like, we create him in our own image.

I think I saw this before back on Dreamwidth? But reblogging here because I love it SO DAMN MUCH. The immediacy and intimacy of Hindu deities is the big reason why I still claim that faith, and why it gives me so much comfort even though I only practice it in my own private way.

What would Jesus not do?

Things Jesus would do:
Flip tables
Turn water into fine wine to save your wedding party
Tell the weather outside to STOP
Curse trees for producing shitty fruit
Bring people back from the dead
Go fishing
Give you food
Whatever the hell he wants to on the Sabbath
Make furniture
Walk across the ocean because you need to stop

This…is the best

As Stalkingstalkerthatstalks said: Canon Jesus is better than fanon Jesus.

YESSSSSSS

See what happens when people read their books?

The man in the picture is Rachid Nekkaz, a French-Algerian businessman living in France.

He heard about the niqab ban in France. Then he announced that he will pay all fines for women who wear the niqab - not just in France but “in any country in the world that bans women from doing so”.

He opened a fund of € 1 million. Then he said, “My sister, go out free wherever you want and I will pay the fine for you”

Allahu Akbar, May Allah reward him.

this man is perfect mA
