The axiom of the astucious or what we say, the belief of truth behind the dishonest. I wanted to share something short and maybe not so sweet but honest this week to serve a purpose and make a point here.

In this past week I've learned and scoped out a lot about the disloyal, the dishonest, and the untrustworthy. Why are we as people failing to be truthful and to be upfront about certain things. It's rare to find the loyal, honest, and trustworthy person these days, but why? Why is it so hard for people to tell the truth? Why can't they face the factuality? Are they afraid of the outcome? Are they timid for the conspicuous conflict? I've asked myself why a thousand times, and still can't figure a reason why people hide behind the truth. I've processed it though, through the depth of my own perception and here is how I see it.

People will use an issue or situation against you, in order to hide behind the actual truth of it all. Some may think they are using it to protect you from hearing the truth of it all. In all honest it's worse to find out the truth behind the lie even if its to protect you because a whole other sequence plays into it.

It's hard to fathom with the dishonesty especially if it's someone you thought would never lie to you about anything because you had made a great friendship or relationship with them. It may come as a shock actually and you might sort of feel confused and mixed with all these different emotions about the situation.

I try to see the good in everyone, and try to understand where they are coming from but you can't not know right from wrong. You can't not know you could be really hurting someone in the situation.

So to all who have lied, have been dishonest, or untrustworthy I hope you take note from this, and if not karma will get you at some point and you will know why.

18 Bible Verses That Prove God Would NOT Be 'Pro-Life'

Stop using the Bible as an excuse to take away women's rights.

"Abortion is WRONG because God (the highest authority) says so! Not because I say so, or "religious" people say so or the government says so...because the CREATOR OF ALL HUMAN LIFE SAYS SO."

This argument is bullshit and I'm sick of hearing it, because it just isn't true. All these Christians claim that the Bible and God says that abortion is wrong, and it's clear they've never read the Bible. Have you ever seen them use a biblical verse to validate their claims? Yeah, me neither. And you know why? BECAUSE THE BIBLE IS NOT PRO-LIFE. They pick and choose vague verses to attempt to back up these ridiculous claims, completely ignoring the damning evidence that the Bible, and therefore God, actually supports child murder, infanticide, and abortion.

Unlike pro-lifers, I'll actually provide some evidence:

1. Numbers 31:17 "Now therefore kill every male among the little ones, and kill every woman that hath known man by lying with him"

2. Deuteronomy 2:34 "And we took all his cities at that time, and utterly destroyed the men, and the women, and the little ones, of every city, we left none to remain"

3. Deuteronomy 28:53 "And thou shalt eat the fruit of thine own body, the flesh of thy sons and of thy daughters, which the Lord thy God hath given thee, in the seige, and in the straitness, wherewith thine enemies shall distress thee"

4. 1 Samuel 15:3 "Now go and smite Amalek, and utterly destroy all that they have, and spare them not; but slay both man and woman, infant and suckling, ox and sheep, camel and ass"

5. Isaiah 13:16 "Their children also shall be dashed to pieces before their eyes; their houses shall be spoiled, and their wives ravished"

6. Isaiah 13:18 "Their bows also shall dash the young men to pieces; and they shall have no pity on the fruit of the womb; their eyes shall not spare children"

7. Ezekiel 9:6 "Slay utterly old and young, both maids, and little children, and women: but come not near any man upon whom is the mark; and begin at my sanctuary. Then they began at the ancient men which were before the house"

8. Hosea 9:14 "Give them, O Lord: what wilt thou give? give them a miscarrying womb and dry breasts"

9. Hosea 13:16 "Samaria shall become desolate; for she hath rebelled against her God: they shall fall by the sword: their infants shall be dashed in pieces, and their women with child shall be ripped up"

10. 2 Kings 2:24 "And he turned back, and looked on them, and cursed them in the name of the Lord. And there came forth two she bears out of the wood, and tare forty and two children of them"

11. Psalm 137:9 "Happy shall he be, that taketh and dasheth thy little ones against the stones"

12. Numbers 5:21 "-here the priest is to put the woman under his curse- "may the Lord cause you to become a curse among your people when he makes your womb miscarry and your abdomen swell"

13. Hosea 9:16 "Ephraim is smitten, their root is dried up, they shall bear no fruit: yea, though they bring forth, yet will I slay even the beloved fruit of their womb"

14. Psalm 135:8 "He it was who struck down the firstborn of Egypt, both of man and of beast;"

15. Psalm 136:10 "-to him who struck down the firstborn of Egypt His love endures forever"

16. 2 Kings 6:28-29 "And the king said unto her, What aileth thee? And she answered, This woman said unto me, Give thy son, that we may eat him to day, and we will eat my son to morrow.So we boiled by son, and did eat him: and I said unto her on the next day, Give thy son, that we may eat him: and she hath hid her son"

17. Leviticus 26:29 "And ye shall eat the flesh of your sons, and the flesh of your daughters shall ye eat"

18. Jeremiah 11:22 "Therefore thus saith the Lord of hosts, Behold, I will punish them: the young men shall die by the sword; their sons and their daughters shall die by famine:"


Stop using your religion to try and push propoganda that "God says abortion is wrong because it kills innocent children." Clearly your God doesn't care about killing children. There is more than enough proof that the Bible and God are NOT pro-life. Stop acting like you're good Christians upholding the values of God when you clearly haven't picked up the Bible and actually read it. God doesn't agree with your backwards thinking. Maybe try do your research before spewing your religious bullshit to try and take away women's rights.

Anti-Abortion: The Wrong Future For America

Even if you do not choose to exercise your right, it should not be taken away.

Alabama is one of the most recent states to sign in an anti-abortion law in their state legislature, with many states following their lead. Starting in November, the new legislation that makes abortion illegal except in cases where the mother's health is at risk will become law in Alabama. That's right, it won't even cover rape or incest. A woman not only gets raped but then must suffer the trauma of having the baby of their offender, while the man who raped them could get away with little or no consequences. Right before Alabama, Georgia's governor signed their heart-beat bill. Outlawing abortion after the 6-8 week mark, when the baby's heartbeat is present, starting in 2020. Kentucky, Missouri, Mississippi, and Ohio also passed heart-beat bills, according to the New York Times. Some women don't even know they are pregnant at 6 weeks.

But there really are some issues surrounding this legislation.

In this country, people come from so many different backgrounds. I'm not just talking race and religion. But, socio-economic backgrounds, lifestyles, goals, family support systems, and so much more. So many times, I hear people say, "if they do not have the means to keep the child, they can just give the baby up for adoption." But not every child grows up through the system with happy outcomes. It's not guaranteed. In 2017, over 17,000 children aged out of the foster care children and did not have a permanent family. Many children will even face abuse.

Our Congress' always jump straight to anti-abortion as well. Our states could be spending that time, money, and energy to allocate more resources into adoption and foster care systems to get as close to a guarantee of a good life for the children placed there. Creating more open access to birth control and contraceptives and making sure our today's teenagers and future parents have the proper sex education will make sure that they understand the in and outs of not only sex but proper birth control methods to be well-prepared in the future. Our education system is failing our students, while our governments are not trying to solve the bigger issues at hand that can help alleviate part of the need for abortions. Our Congress' are spending time, money, and energy to pass legislation that, in some cases, do not even align with Supreme Court decisions.

We also cannot forget about the legislators passing these bills in the state legislatures. The majority of them? Men. Men who have never known what it is like to miss your period, and sum it up to stress until more than 6 weeks later. As citizens and residents of this country, it should be our responsibility not only to understand safe sex (which needs to be taught through our schools) but to go to the polls and vote for the politicians who will represent your best interests. Who tries to better the system, before taking drastic measures that work against the women in this country. Women deserve their rights.
