Christian Spook

I am a Christian who is engaged to a Norse Heathen spirit worker. My fiance started me off on my own spiritual Renaissance when he began doing spirit work with Angels for my benefit. Now I help him with his work as I take my first steps into this new world.

A creepy X-ray image taken of a statue of Jesus in Mexico has revealed that the 300-year-old figure contains real human teeth - and they are all in perfect condition. The eight teeth were discovered when researchers took the X-ray as part of restoration work on the ‘Lord of Patience’ statue, believed to have been constructed in the 18th century. The teeth, which are perfectly formed all the way to the root, are believed to have been donated by worshipers out of gratitude, or as a way to get closer to the religious figure.

I had to check to see if this was real. It’s real. 1 2 3

Taking a brief hiatus from Tumblr. I’m going to be busy for the near future and I find myself getting too invested in/frustrated by the opinions of people I don’t know on the internet.

I’m not mad at anyone, I just think I could use a good change of perspective.

Anonymous asked: Not sure how you can say people shouldn't police others identities but judge someone for identifying as queer while not acting like or doing stuff that falls under the umbrella of what you think a queer individual should do/act like? So unless she was saying her struggle to be recognized as queer is the same as your fiance's struggle to be recognized as male, why should you be the judge of her queerness or lack thereof?

Because people who are being disingenuous about their gender identity damage the credibility of those are genuinely gender queer.

Been thinking about nonbinary stuff…

So, I’ve been thinking about non-binary gender identities. I was hanging out with some friends recently and one of them mentioned she was gender queer, but preferred female pronouns for the sake of convenience. That’s cool. I didn’t think much of it. But as the night went on, I began to get annoyed by this person’s assertion. I just didn’t see one scrap of masculinity about her. I just don’t see why she bothered to take the label. It was a little galling because my fiancé is trans and really has to suffer some serious social consequences for going out and being a man everyday when he was assigned female at birth. I wasn’t really mad at our friend. I actually think she’s pretty cool. The idea sticks in my craw, though.

Now, I know it’s popular to say “I am what I say I am”. I think maybe that sentiment could stand to be changed to “I am what I do”. If you say you are something, you should back it up. Now I’m not talking about wearing pink or liking football or things like that. I’m talking about broad behavior trends that exist across cultures within the spheres of masculinity and femininity.

I could write for a long time about what it means to be masculine and feminine, but that’s not really my point. My point is that folks should not take on the label of gender queer unless it really means something. If you were assigned female and use female pronouns and you live your day to day life as a girl/woman, you’re not gender queer and you aren’t the same as people who have to deal with the consequences of their identity and to assert that you are in the same boat is to undermine the meaning of gender identity.

Whatever happened to “being in touch with your feminine/masculine side”? Since when did people need a whole new gender because they could function well with people of a different gender.

Now, I know people who are non-binary. They present as both, neither, one or the other as they feel and they walk the walk. They are what they are. They don’t simply say what they are. I’m not saying we should police people for their gender identity. Just be who you are, don’t just say who you are with nothing to back that.

Alphonse Mucha (1860-1939), ‘Le Pater’ Part I

Among Alphonse Mucha’s greatest achievements in his mature years were his seven pictures from the Lord’s Prayer, known as the “Pater Noster” or “Le Pater.”
He created a separate image for each line of the prayer. Above are the images for “Thy kingdom come,” and “Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us.”
Mucha visualized the familiar prayer as a universal expression of humankind’s relationship with the divine, mixing traditional Catholic devotion with an Asiatic-tinged occult mysticism.

The Century magazine in 1904 described Mucha’s unique conception of God as “no longer the benign or wrathful Father, but a mysterious Being whose shadow fills the earth. Nature is personified as a luminous, adolescent giant, and Love descends from heaven in the guise of a woman.”
