I'm Going to CHURCH in the morning....

July 24th, 2005 (04:56 am)

As reluctantly I am sure.....as A's girlfriend.

I'm kinda excited about it.

I'm going to wear a dress.

My red leather bound AMERICAN STANDARD Bible is already pulled out.

I'm looking at it.

Presented to Ginger Stevens, March 28, 1985
By: Mother--I love You.
1 Corinthians 13 especially
the first 3 words of
verse 8
.


In the New American Standard Bible...
The best translation this savage has found....

1st Corinthians
CHAPTER 13

The excellence of love

If I speak with the tongues of men
and of angels, but do not have love,
I have become a noisy gong or a
clanging cymbal.

2 And if I have the gift of proph-
ecy, and know all mysteries and all
knowledge; and if I have all faith,
so as to remove mountains, but do
not have love, I am nothing.

3 And if I give all my posses-
sions to feed the poor, and if I



OH, CRAP!!! I DO NOT BELIEVE IN CHRIST.
i just don't.

I won't do this
8 times.

What she said.
What she CHOSE to say........
was 8.
Three words.


LOVE NEVER FAILS.


She said that to her daughter.
Her daughter still believes it.


Her daughter has this Bible.

For what it's worth.....
her daughter highlighted it in purple.




And the crap above it doesn't apply
and the crap below it doesn't either.

A translation of a language and culture.....
so different from our own,
in time
and space?

How did pasty people EVER align themselves with
this text?

Twist it into absolutes???


LOTS of things are highlighted in this Bible.
And underlined.


I paid my Jesus dues.
Over
and
Over
and
Over.


But I'm going to meet GOD tomorrow.
With my Friend.
And her Girlfriend.

Me and her Girlfriend....
Have rocks to throw.
Stones even.

But I'll play nice,
I'll be in a dress.



(YES MOM, THE LESBIANS ARE TAKING ME TO CHURCH, HAPPY???)
