    Raintree is such a badass! You go, girl! We should all confront these so-called “concerned Christian conservative” politicians with the reality of what they claim. You want to quote about “abominations” and being primarily concerned with God’s law? Then put up or shut up. Put us to death and let the Lord console you as you rot in jail. And if you don’t have the guts to bash in the head with rocks for all the world to see, then recognize that you have some thinking to do about where your religion and common decency intersect.

    Put up or shut up? Nah, they want to have their cake and eat it too.

    Talk about abominations and death and fire and brimstone, shit all over people who aren’t them, then hide behind their translated texts and concern-shields.

  • Ashe

    GO RAINTREE.

    And…wow. Reporter hits on her in a work-related situation right after a painful divorce. I’m starting to wonder if every straight man got fired for being a creepy prick in the game industry, if there would be any left. I’m so tired of reading these stories.

    Gonna watch Michelle Obama slam-dunking until I feel better.

    So surprised yet happy to see 2NE1′s teaser video here! They’re not the most musically innovative group to ever make pop music according to big corporations’ machinations, but, y’know, they at least try very earnestly with their badass women image and share some competent voices and dance skills among them. The group seems to be teetering on the verge of breaking up these days, so hopefully they’ll have a great comeback and will go back to ass-kicking :-)
    Also, it’s an awesome teaser, handsdown.

    “You shall not kill.” Exodus 20:13
    “But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you,” Matthew 5:44
    “For I desire mercy, not sacrifice…” Hosea 6:6a

    It’s easy for someone unfamiliar with the Bible to take it out of context. People find verses from parts of the Bible that are the equivalent of old law book and cite them without understanding that the law was later repealed. That’s like trying to shut down a bar for violating the 18th Amendment!

    I challenge you to read John chapter 8. It shows Jesus’ opinion on stoning. Then follow up with the Sermon on the Mount (Matthew 5-7) and the Sermon on the Plain (Luke 6).

  • Isaac Nolan

    Such a surprising concept for them to come back with as well! Definitely not something we’ve seen from them before, but I’m holding out hope that it’s something close to what we’ve heard from them before, or at-least somewhat similar to their earlier songs.

    Sidenote: Minzy looked rockin’ with that lightsaber, and Dara’s powers will hopefully be cool, but what was Bom doing? Was she on that blue light thing that hit Earth?

  • Isaac Nolan

    Whenever I see these “apologies” come from people that have been called out on being disgusting jerks, I find it hard to believe that it’s sincere and not just a ploy to try and save their reputation. Instead of apologising for it later how about not doing it in the first place. Professionalism is miles away from this reporter’s skill set, and let’s not even start on his lack of basic consideration.

    It really says something about this industry when a man will earn praise simply because he isn’t a sexist idiot, it shouldn’t be something that is rewarded, it should be the norm. “A few bad apples ruin the bunch” doesn’t even begin to cut it, because the more and more these stories come out I realise that in this industry it’s almost the entire bunch of apples that are rotten.

    Also, never expected to see 2NE1 here, definitely glad to though!

  • Miss Cephalopod

    To quite honest, I’m not really surprised – 2NE1 have always liked a bit of futurism and their debut “Fire” had two music videos, the “street” version and the “space” version, so this seems kind of in line with their image to me.
    Bom is maybe a priestess/moon princess/Sailor Moon…?

  • Isaac Nolan

    That’s true, but I feel like while still futuristic this is less the futuristic side and more the fantasy side of science fiction. It’s very possible that you’re right about Bom, she’s the only one that was left incredibly vague.

    I’m fully aware of these. My post speaks to “concerned Christian conservatives” who take and interpret what they want and yell about fire and brimstone and ignore the complex texts in the Bible that do not advocate for stoning in the streets or other forms of physical and emotional violence. Those are the Christians who need to be challenged to read those chapters and be asked to reconcile their stoic positions and behavior with the message of their savior. Were I trying to claim that all Christians do this, then I would have said so. But I appreciate your reaching out.
