I randomly read through the reactions of the readers to this video and somehow I had to keep nodding to most of them:
" This shows the level of depravity , deterioration ,perversion ,degeneration ,invalidity ,perversity ,immorality ,rottenness of , corruption human being on earth."
"This will soon be the in-thing with gay marriages ! Well done, Paris !!!"
"Another gimmick of the LGBT community. This sick and confused parody will only end if the world awakes and acts against the gay community."
"What makes this so perverse is the sickly silence of the elites, government authorities, some Church leaders, charities and development agencies which are more obsessed with bureaucratic betterment than saving the victims."
I guess we cannot really do all of it at the same time. The "all of it" here refers to a lot more other problems that our country, and the rest of the world is facing. They are all inter-connected so to speak but then again you have to take a look at each one of them, one by one, and find out how to address them. As a private individual, I am sometimes overwhelmed by these ugliness around us, but I am not losing hope for as long as I have it, I believe there is something that I can do. In my own little way. Sounds lame, dreamy and even cheeky, but sometimes we have to remember that what is essential is invisible to the naked eye.
SEXUAL VIOLENCE IN CONFLICT AND SEX TOURISM MUST BE OPPOSEDby Fr Shay Cullen
Preda's social investigation of child traffickingThe unwelcome truth that civilized people don’t want to hear is that the human race is not so civilized after all. Hundreds of thousands of wealthy males travel from rich to poor countries every year to sexually exploit and abuse children and womenin a global phenomenon known as sex-tourism. Sexual violence is common and tragically and sinfully ignored. Hundreds of thousands of women and children are trafficked and in Europe 27,600 are victims of forced labor.

"What's with these wars?" My son asked me this one time while I was watching television news. A few minutes later he was busy with his drawing book. I told him waging a war for me is the greatest sin in the world. It is so vicious and evil. No son or daughter of God can do that. There is no sense in a war. The only thing that it produces is death. Nothing else.

Now he looks so gay that he really actually is...
Keanu Reeves is spotted on a yacht at Cannes Film Festival, showing off a possible weight gain and sporting longer hair.
I was attending our prayer meeting last Sunday and the message was loud and clear. The Lord is angry. People are turning their backs on him, state leaders are claiming they are powerful, when it is only God who is all powerful. "Watch me shake their cities. I will burn them!" And then today I see this news and I get goosebumps all over my body.
A monstrous tornado as much as a mile wide roared through the Oklahoma City suburbs Monday, flattening entire neighborhoods with winds up to 200 mph, setting buildings on fire and landing a direct blow on an elementary school.
Meditation for the Working Woman
With a household to run, a partner to look after, a child (or more) to raise, deadlines to meet, a nagging boss to report to or a business to manage, who has time to meditate? Besides, meditating? Isn’t that just for monks?Many people have false perceptions of meditation: that it’s a spiritual activity performed meant only for new age folk or tree huggers; that you need to wake up before sunrise to do it; that you have to sit uncomfortably while mosquitoes feast on you; that you need to be highly enlightened to be able to successfully achieve it.
In reality, anyone can do it. And yes, the busier you are, the more you need to do it. Here we bust four meditation misconceptions through testimonies of working women whose lives have been touched by meditation. KEEP READING
I once heard someone telling me that the more you meditate, the more you become peaceful and more secure of yourself and more in touch with your surroundings. Well this is pretty simple. Self-explanatory. Ridding your mind of rubble is something that most of us depend of a shrink, when we can actually do it by ourselves, too, wherever we are or what we do.
I can't even finish watching this video. Then again I do not want to sound to arrogant towards the present generation. I don't know. There are too many novelty songs which I like. But this one makes me puke. Funny for a less 1% bit, but mostly it just grosses me out.
