|Patriarchy:||You mean unattractive right?|
|Woman:||I have all these incredible accomplishments|
|Patriarchy:||Yeah but look how ugly you looked doing them|
|Woman:||I have value|
|Patriarchy:||Not if you're ugly lol|
|Woman:||I'm conventionally-attractive & posted selfies on my blog|
|Patriarchy:||I'm so sick of these empty-headed chicks only caring about their looks. Just because you are attractive and get attention from men doesn't mean you are special or deserve respect. Why don't you read a book or do something productive with your life you dumb slut|

Bottled Water Sales: The Shocking Reality
The Beverage Marketing Corporation, which tracks sales and consumption of beverages, is reporting that sales of bottled water grew nearly 7 percent between 2011 and 2012, with consumption reaching a staggering 30.8 gallons per person.
Despite having one of the best municipal tap water systems in the world, American consumers are flocking to commercial bottled water, which costs thousands of times more per gallon. Why? Four reasons:
- First, we have been bombarded with advertisements that claim that our tap water is unsafe, or that bottled water is safer, healthier, and more hip, often with celebrity endorsements. (Thanks a lot, Jennifer.)
- Second, public drinking water fountains have become increasingly hard to find. And the ones that exist are not being adequately maintained by our communities.
- Third, people are increasingly fearful of our tap water, hearing stories about contamination, new chemicals that our treatment systems aren’t designed to remove, or occasional failures of infrastructure that isn’t being adequately maintained or improved.
- Fourth, some people don’t like the taste of their tap water, or think they don’t.
Some people, including the bottled water industry, argue that drinking bottled water is better than drinking soft drinks. I agree. But that’s not what’s happening. The vast increase in bottled water sales have largely come at the expense of tap water, not soft drinks. And even if we pushed (as we should) to replace carbonated soft drinks with water, it should be tap water, not expensive bottled water.
This industry has very successfully turned a public resource into a private commodity.
|Pastor:||Now, according to a few passages in the bible, homosexuality is a sin.|
|Couple of older males in the audience:||Amen!|
|Pastor:||Now, wait, I'm not finished.|
|Pastor:||You know what else the bible defines as a sin? Divorce.|
|Pastor:||There are countless passages that talk about how divorce is wrong, and that there are consequences to getting a divorce, such as the wife should be stoned.|
|Pastor:||Yet, I witnessed a divorce just this morning. And I gotta tell you, it was heartbreaking, but I definitely didn't attempt to throw rocks at the wife, even though she was the one who filed for divorce.|
|Pastor:||We choose to overlook the consequences of divorce because time has proven that they're inhumane and cruel.|
|Pastor:||The bible doesn't say anything about the consequences of a homosexual lifestyle. Yet, we seem to be spearheading a campaign to ruin the lives of people we don't even know.|
|-the pastor shifts a few notes around-|
|Pastor:||The bible states to love thy neighbor. That's it. There are no other rules or restrictions to that passage.|
|Pastor:||So, we as a church family have to support equality with a smile on our face. THAT is the true Christian way.|
