Jul 24

I really want to have two events focused on religion. one being religion and liberation theology and the other being lgbtqa people in religion, and how there can be spaces for them


this guy i just met today grabbed my shoulders ;;;

People still think that the American civil war about slavery. Such a damn shame.

Fuck you guys. From Mississippi’s Declaration of Independence:

In the momentous step, which our State has taken of dissolving its connection with the government of which we so long formed a part, it is but just that we should declare the prominent reasons which have induced our course.
Our position is thoroughly identified with the institution of slavery - the greatest material interest of the world.


From Texas’ Declaration of Independence:

She was received as a commonwealth holding, maintaining and protecting the institution known as negro slavery - the servitude of the African to the white race within her limits - a relation that had existed from the first settlement of her wilderness by the white race, and which her people intended should exist in all future time. Her institutions and geographical position established the strongest ties between her and other slaveholding States of the confederacy.

From the Confederacy’s own Constitution: 

No bill of attainder, ex post facto law, or law denying or impairing the right of property in negro slaves shall be passed.The Confederate States may acquire new territory; and Congress shall have power to legislate and provide governments for the inhabitants of all territory belonging to the Confederate States, lying without the limits of the several states; and may permit them, at such times, and in such manner as it may by law provide, to form states to be admitted into the Confederacy. In all such territory, the institution of negro slavery as it now exists in the Confederate States, shall be recognized and protected by Congress, and by the territorial government: and the inhabitants of the several Confederate States and Territories, shall have the right to take to such territory any slaves lawfully held by them in any of the states or territories of the Confederate states.

So not only was slavery a key cornerstone of the Confederacy, they went so far as to say that any Confederate state was REQUIRED to allow slavery, and could not limit it in any way. BUT WAIT, WHAT ABOUT STATES’ RIGHTS? Fuck the Confederacy, may it burn in hell for all eternity. The South shall never rise again.

standwithpalestine:

It’s tough being terrorist state. Millions of people don’t voluntarily give up their time for you like they do Palestine so you have to pay keyboard warriors to defend your war crimes, buy sponsored tweets… and now Facebook fans. Monstrous and desperate.

I always found the group name ‘Students for a Democratic Society’ to be confusing lol. It sounds too liberal
