So, now my husband writes erotica. And the weird thing is, I’m kinda jealous. Like, I might start writing it too. I write poetry, stories, screenplays, whatever, let’s just add in sex stories! Because people are not already freaked out enough by me. Oh and I sell sex toys, and I want to learn how to do tantric yoga. From the outside/my mom, I look like such a freak! Like, clearly this chick has no morals. Somehow, though, this IS my morals. I believe sex is so important, and I believe that it reveals so much to us about God, that I really believe we are supposed to enjoy it and explore together in it.
Anyway, so all these changes are inspiring me to do a lot of thinking about social conventions, and what’s “OK.” I was talking to a friend of mine the other day, and she was talking about all her political opinions and I said that there’s so much conflict about this stuff that I don’t even have opinions about it. Throughout the conversation though, I realized that it’s not that I don’t have opinions on these. It’s that I DO have opinions on certain things that are so much more important that I don’t get into the petty things.
I like to live by the two great commandments, basically love God with all your heart, and love your neighbor. I believe in those two above the other commandments, and it saddens my heart when others disregard those in favor of so many other stupid things. Why are we screaming at people and throwing things at them and refusing to go to their weddings because they love a different than we believe they should, instead of throwing all of that energy into saving baby lives? Why are we shoving horribly graphic images of destroyed babies in people’s faces and then saying we are “pro life”? Let me tell you, I do not think life is a good thing when I am looking at pictures like that!
I just think the world would be better if we taught Christlike love, instead of Old Testament Vengeance. I’m not saying that God doesn’t have rules, but I think a lot of Christians have their priorities all the kinds of out of whack.
