This is a rant. If it offends you, don’t read it. I’m entitled to my views, you’re entitled to yours.
The Golden Compass
This is one movie that I was looking so forward to seeing, and now I’m hoping that I never have to watch a single second of it. There was a great storyline there, possibly one of the best that I’ve ever seen (along with “The Dark is Rising Sequence”, “Chronicles of Narnia”, and a few others). The storyline is anti-religious. Deal with it.
Unfortunately, the amount of complaints that it would corrupt our youth turned it into a watered down shadow of what it might have been. Thank you for ruining so much potential.
The politically correct world
After hearing about the following, I think I want to stop existing in this type of world:
- Santa Claus is no longer allowed to say “ho ho ho”… because ‘ho’ is considered to be a derogatory term.
- Charities who stand outside shopping malls and wish people a ‘Merry Christmas’ and ring bells have been asked to stop because patrons found the bells irritating and annoying.
- “Merry Christmas” is no longer to be used, as it doesn’t take into account other religious views.
Yes we have to be tolerant and accepting, but there has to be a limit somewhere. Honestly, how many people who aren’t Christian actually get upset when someone says ‘Merry Christmas’?
I swear that I will spend the next month running around shouting “Merry Christmas” and “Ho Ho Ho” to everyone that I meet just as a protest of this stupidity. I reject you, society!
Oh, I also realized that my initial calculations for filling the English Great Hall with balls were inaccurate. It will cost approximately $7000 USD. Quite achievable!
