If you need to B*tch about something... this is the place

Online dating is usually a bust. There are some people on there who, like you, are fine and normal people who have just had bad luck meeting people or are just isolated. And then there’s a much, much larger amount of people who are single for a reason. And another secondary effect is those people from that second group will even cause the people in the first group to lose interest in talking to people on the site because they’ll just automatically assume the worst about that.

It wasn’t cliche and I didn’t see the story coming. Its atmosphere culminated a sense of dread I haven’t felt in a movie in a long time. The whole vibe was harrowing. It being made as an independent film and then later picked up for major distribution definitely did it some favors as the director was clearly not constrained to follow standard tropes and cliches.

Agreed. There are certain images in the movie that just really stick with you. No other way to put it for me other than it has really stuck with me in a haunting way.

This. And the way the music suddenly gets all ethereal and soothing at the end during the most fucked up part of the movie is beyond twisted and I loved it.

The fact that the new testament in the specific catholic Bible is hilarious.

Huh? Perhaps you are leaving a word out or something?

Definitely. Don’t care enough to fix it though.

They made their own new Bible and had the perfect opportunity to excuse their own policies and didn’t even take it.

Again, they didn’t make the Bible. Also I think they believe that their policies don’t violate the Bible.

Then they are wrong. But we’re all wrong about stuff it happens.

That may be true but it doesn’t make any sense. Why would a Christian religion care that much about more books of the old testament? That’s Judaism. Yes Christians look to the old testament for stories and morality (well some of it anyway… Some of the old testament is quite disgusting morally. Lots of rape and brutality.) but it’s specific teachings are not Christian. So why would they modify their Bible for it? Isn’t what’s already in the old testament out of the box without getting dlcs for it?

Probably realized a ton of the stuff they do outright contradicted the scripture that already existed so they had to make their own.

You really shouldn’t talk about something of which you really have no knowledge of the history of how it came to be.

Of course that’s not the official reason the catholic Bible was made. Are you suggesting the scriptures that warn against celibacy and strictly forbid calling a man heavenly father and warn against restricting diet for certain times didn’t count or what? There’s also the matter of the Bible quite clearly saying each individual congregation should be it’s own governing body and not answer to another higher church or church figure other than God himself. That had to go, amirite? (And yes, I am. Catholics don’t read the Bible very much for the most part in my experience. Once upon a time they were actually discouraged from reading it. I wonder why…)
