Proof that the "Let's Offend" thread and its variations just wait around for Smudgie to show up:

Oh, you beat me to it, Wodders! But I would add:

But it is the place I am commanded to encounter the risen Christ. It is the place where the sacraments happen, where the Word is broken open, where koinonia occurs, even if sometimes more in the breech than the observance. I can see some reflections of God in creation (but as Wordsworth and Tennyson perhaps above all testify, that can bite one on the bum) but cannot reach out and receive God, digest God, argue God, be absolved by God, encounter crucified and resurrected God under my bhodi tree or on my cliff top.

I'm more of a cliff top person, myself, but even so.... [Overused]

Sometimes we archive snappy lines, sometimes we archive examples of moving, well-crafted, damn good writing:


quote:
Originally posted by Zappa:
At last time to think about this thread, this decade. It began when I was ten, ended when I was 20 (yeah, okay, give or take a few weeks). There's a nice symmetry there.

  • I saw 1970 in asleep, but I had arrived in Christchurch (NZ) on New Year's Eve. So too had the bikie gang Highway 61. They smashed the town. I visited the cathedral (destroyed in last year's earthquake) and cut my foot badly on the broken glass they left behind.
  • The Beatles gave up on love, hated each other, and I discovered them. "When I find myself in times of trouble ..."
  • America sang a song about a nameless equine and Don McLean sang about the death of music - thereby resuscitating it.
  • I fell in love with a girl in the Partridge Family
  • By 1972 I was in love with love. I was learning to smoke, got confirmed because it was the mature thing to do in an anglican school, and became an increasingly polemical atheist.
  • In 1973 Lobo sang my song (I'd Love You to Want Me) and James B. stole the girl of my dreams. There was still no 'world' out there. I was at secondary (boarding) school, a real man. That was soon pummelled out of me. I longed to see, er, pubic changes but they would not come.
  • In 1974 I was smoking lots because I hated the school, hated the world, hated. Black Sabbath and Uriah Heap ... I was a cox and my voice finally agreed to break. My father died so I got a weekend off school.
  • 1975 - far off in a country called America a peanut farmer was president, Queen were singing about scarramoush, and I discovered a dude called Bob Dylan. I discovered alcohol, too.
  • 1976: Bruce Springsteen joined Bob Dylan and Neil Young as the singers of my angst. I discovered marijuana and believed that if the world smoked enough of it, listened to enough Dylan and Young, CSN & Y, Led Zepp and Brucey boy it would be redeemed. There was no God.
  • I was busted in a scandal revolving around the importaion of marijuana into my elite boarding school. There was not enough evidence to pin me down but most of my close friends were suspended or expelled. I was drinking, smoking, smoking pot - somehow I passed my University Entrance exams but i was fucked if I was ever going to go to one of those irrelevant institutions. I was full of anger and hatred - and wanted a girl but I looked about 13 and was no chick magnet.
  • somehow I was selected as a cox for a national rowing sqaud and for my school 1st VIII. We won the national championships, and when it was over I wondered what life meant - hero to zero we'd cliche these days. There was no God, I was a part of a national championship crew, but it was over. I thought about suicide but couldn't be buggered. For the first time I fell in love with a real girl, kissed and fondled, and she moved to a town a day's drive away. Bugger. But at least I had "had" love.
  • 1978. I left school, became a broadcasting cadet, drank lots, smoked lots of pot, longed for love, lived alone, rode motorbikes at suicidal speed ... and fucking disco hit the airwaves. late that year the friend with whom I had been importing dope to my school got on my motorbike in an alcoholic fog, rode off into the afternoon, and came back dead.
  • 1979. I gave up the fight, surrendered to God, became a Pentecostal ... got the girl and lost her. No sex of course ... but I was alive.
    The decade ended just as I busted up with her and slid into anglicanism ... I was at university and pretty much have been ever since (though I am no brighter)

I can't remember where I was the final night of that decade. In a prayer group perhaps. But I had found God and I have, despite some painful times, never been let go.

Speaking as a bosom liberationist, I stand in solidarity with our oppressed sisters. For too long, womyn have been forced to bind, hide, squeeze, squash and compress their bosoms to fit puerile male fantasies and subconscious fears of the inherent power of the life-giving female breast.

I say, it's time to stop hiding the female bosom! Free it now, turn back centuries of masculine oppression! Wear only whatever support or decoration *you* as the bosom supporter freely decide is appropriate and comfortable!

Just as Jesus commanded us not to hide our lights under bushels, so too let us not hide the female bosom under concealing clothing! Womyn: Step forth proudly baring the bosom that nurtured a generation of empowered womyn determined to remake the face of male-dominated Western culture!

Show your bosom and strike a blow for freedom!

I want us to remove the butter knives, yes, to paraphrase a brilliant moment from Patdys on another thread. But more, I want to find a way to reach the broken hearts. I want children to grow up feeling loved and not feeling desperate. I WANT TO FIX THIS but I don't know how.

Recent recruit the long ranger, to recent recruit Mark Betts. Who it was directed to and what the thread (tangent) was about is not important, but it was a beautifully written retort that drove me here I think for the first time to record it for posterity:
quote:
You, Sir, are a prick. In fact, if a prick was to spend time trying to formulate a general definition of what a prick was, he would be describing you. You are the archetypical prick. If prickiness was a stick of rock, your name would run through it.

Just out of curiosity, which part of the Eucharist is performed with the penis? It seems to be a critical requirement, but I've never had anyone explain why.

Defending cultural churcianity and established religion is not the same thing as defending the Christian faith.

And, while we're at it, perhaps forgive those health care professionals who suffer a bias of only getting to see those who suffer most.

Josephine's whole post is pretty fine, but this is the part I might write out and stick up somewhere visible in my home:

This was originally in the context of the evolution of Eucharistic doctrine, but I think it works more generally (and so have clipped it to its most general form).
