Speak Out Network
As a Christian, I'm viscerally reminded that the Rasta Bible is (...) the King James.
Babylon. Babylon the Great.
Read your version; find out Who wins.
And a good Sunday to you, Thisis My Fullname. You mentioned "Rasta Bible," and "my version." Can you break it down for me so I can better understand what it is you're trying to share with me. Many thanks, in advance..Yours in the struggle for a better tomorrow
Sorry for the snarkiness; now it's dawning on me that it was less than crystal clear. Starting with 'versions,' I was just referring to this or that (other) translation of the canonical, orthodox Bible. By contrast --or not, depending on your preference-- Rastas prefer the King James. Which is as arcane as they get, where Bibles are concerned. Traditionally, that's where their rhetoric comes from. Including, for instance, Babylon, and more specifically, the notion that Babylon is Right Here, Right Now. Maybe certain people should be taking them that little bit more seriously.
Lol! Couldn't agree more.
...Meanwhile, Mormons need a whole other Bible to justify their b*******.
Just starting with racism.
I'm reminded of the memoirs of William Shirer, who also wrote the magisterial Rise and Fall of the Third Reich. As an American journalist (whose boss was Edward R. Murrow), he had immediate access to the inner circle of Nazi power up to Pearl Harbor. Unlike any European journalist who wasn't on the same side, He was there Right There, until the moment of American entry into World War II. And his takeaway regarding these people was that they were Complete Boors. (Cf. the etymological origin, 'Boers.') They were Every Little Bit as moronic as they looked.
There are serious lessons to be learned from this. Moral, spiritual, intellectual, and political decay often enough go hand in hand, if not hand in glove. Regardless of whether you're predisposed to picture this on a theological level (disclaimer: I am), it's worth thinking about along the lines of the disease model.
Moral: Don't Let the Bastards Win.
...Right, shut-up time. :<}
(...Well, for that minute. Followed by this, prompted by the Diane Rehm Show (29 Oct.), about the fiscal cliff. ...And the aggregate inanity of the pundits. --I Need Diane Rehm, merely to sustain something vaguely resembling intelligent life; this was Not a representative show:)
We are marching to Plutocracy,
The rich Like recessions. And always have, only most conspicuously over the last three decades. It makes them that much less like you and me (cf. Hemingway),* both in terms of how they feel about themselves (Very Important), And in fact.
*'The rich are different from you and me.' 'Yes, they have more money.'
