IMOTSKI CARNIVAL BURNS EFFIGY OF SAME-SEX COUPLE!
I am definitely an extremist—I’m extremely intolerant to intolerance!
This is what made me going: in and around Croatia it’s the Carnival season. The custom is to hold a parade, then burn an effigy of someone representing the evil, or corruption—you know the gist. In the town of Imotski in the rural south of Croatia the effigy BURNT this year was A SAME-SEX COUPLE with a child! If that’s supposed to be humorous, I failed to find humour in it.
If your life views are more of the tolerant and liberal kind, you’d do well to stay clear of Imotski. On the other hand, if you’re curious to see the place where time goes backwards toward the New Stone Age, you should visit!
Here’s the video of the Carnival parade—the gay couple burning is at about 1:40:30 mark.

“Let no corrupting talk come out of your mouths, but only such as is good for building up, as fits the occasion, that it may give grace to those who hear.”
Ephesians 4:29 ESV
For some reason once I start to get comfortable with a label that goes along with Gods I want to research to eventually work with I start to get uncomfortable. I don’t know why.
I think it might be because I fear judgement
That might be my biggest vice but that could be something to use as a criteria of what Gods I want to worship. Which Gods don’t make me fear judgement!
Does that make sense?
Finally recognizing how different everyone’s journeys in the gospel really are with a story told by the RS teacher. Like…. it’s not only helped me feel at peace with some of my decisions that don’t necessarily fit the “mold” but I feel like I really understand the women in my ward a little better by realizing their stories are all so varied and different than mine.
Ephesians 2:10 ESV
Gods are a technology of religion, religions are not technologies of gods.
Betye Saar is an American artist best known for her multimedia collages, box assemblages, altars and installations consisting of found materials that explore the realities of African American oppression. A prominent member of the Black Arts Movement in the 1970s, Saar communicates her political, racial, religious and gender concerns as a way to create politically potent and personally meaningful compositions.
In Liberation of Aunt Jemima: Cocktail, Saar developed a powerful social critique that challenged racial and sexist stereotypes deeply rooted in American culture. In this piece, a 1970s Gallo wine jug features a handmade label with a “mammy” figure on the front and a Black Power fist on the back. A jug that was once a 1970s marker of middle-class sophistication is transformed into a tool for Black liberation.
