Zodiac rising (ascendent) sign explained.
By far one of my FAVORITE signs I’ve seen this week!
aw snap. I love the smell of logic in the afternoon
I haven’t been reblogging many of these but I like this one.
when you think about it fanfiction is actually amazing
there are thousands of brilliantly written novel-length stories kids wrote from their own brains about characters and shows/books/movies they love all twined into the internet and other kids read these 50k+ stories in their own time and invest themselves in it
nobody’s being paid to write it and nobody’s being told to read it, people do it because they legitimately enjoy it
that is just kind of amazing
when did homosexuality become wrong i mean in ancient rome they just had giant orgies and nobody thought twice about it
Technically Rome was converted not attacked. For most of the beginning of Christianity the Romans called Christians atheists and would execute them in a whole manner of unpleasant ways from crucifiction (borrowed from the Babylonians) to being burnt alive or even eaten alive by wild animals or dogs in the Colosseum for entertainment because they refused to deny their faith and worship the Roman Pantheon or whatever Caesar was in charge at them time that thought he was a god incarnate. Instead they worshipped a single god who they believed would reward them with paradise. In the early days of Christianity (like with most religions) a majority of the followers were the poor, women, and slaves- those who could not rise above their circumstances because of social dictations. Christianity gave them hope that when they died things would be better and they would be rewarded for their good deeds in life.
When we take this into consideration it makes sense that Christianity would be against homosexuality and many of the other things that they consider morally depraved. I’m not saying it’s right for a fair number of Christians to so harshly judge an entire group of people just because they love differently than what they consider normal or right(in fact I personally feel it’s extremely wrong and hypocritical all things considered). But just like a lot of the LGBT community hates Christianity for being so judgemental against them it makes sense that a lot of early Christians would have a strong dislike for many of the practices that the Romans participated in due to the level of prejudice that they received just for having a different belief system. It would only be a natural outcome that whenever Christian leaders met to begin formalizing Christianity from a bunch of individuals reading from their favorite books and gospels with their own set of ceremonies into a full blown organized religion that we have today, that they would include books and passages that stood against what the Romans believed. This is no different from any other group of people that experienced heavy prejudice obtaining political sway.
Further the whole Christians becoming military forces didn’t happen until Rome split into two parts and half of it fell. Attacks on Rome throughout its entire history were from the Mongols(Prior to their alliance with Byzantium) and Turkish(Ottoman) Empire(when part of Rome became the Byzantine Empire) as well as the Germanic northern tribes such as the Goths and the Vandals. Christian military forces didn’t become prevalent until the French, British, and German empires started rise up and the Crusades began.
There are also a host of books and documentaries that you can look into if you want more information on the subject.
“My darling girl, when Ramses destroyed Syria, that was an accident. You are a catastrophe!”
This is one of my favorite scenes from the movie.
HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA I love this.
The recent Supreme Court hearing over the constitutionality of Prop 8 brought many things to light. For one, it provided a space for all those tired old anti-gay-marriage arguments to be paraded out. It also allowed Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan an opportunity to destroy them one by one. Listen to the actual exchange here.
Am i seeing things or.. ?
