High Tide Ultimate Tournament

Filed under: bible, school, sports, what the freak — mete23 @ 11:12 pm

The Ultimate team I play for at school, Vicious Circles, is heading to St. Simons, Georgia (Unfortunately, it’s about an hour and half away from Savannah) this spring break to play in the High Tide Ultimate tournament. We will be playing in Session II with twenty-three other women’s teams.

I decided to visit the site today to figure out A) how far away St. Simons is from Savannah (because I really miss Savannah) B) what other teams will be down there and C) when we will be playing (because we will be there for a whole week and we are not playing every single day).

First, I noticed that the website was “www.disc-iple.com.” Haha..and then I stumbled upon the logo for High Tide:

And I thought, man they must be totally mocking this whole Jesus thing…why the freak is there a cross on the disc. Except, they are really not joking. This was on their “About” page (bold added):

At Disc-iple our goal is to likewise challenge one another to know the rules of life as presented in the bible and to apply them with grace to one another. The perfect example  of this life was demonstrated best by the life of Jesus. Our hopes are that you will take up this challenge and test the words of this year’s scripture verse:

It is the glory of God to conceal a matter, But the glory of kings is to search out a matter.
Proverbs 25:2

And then there was this freakish picture of Jesus with a disc:

I don’t know if my team knows that they registered to a Jesus tournament but I think it’s really funny that they did. Then again, this is like the biggest Ultimate thing going down on the east coast during spring break. If they are giving out discs and shirts with “disc-iple” and that logo on it , I don’t think I will ever wear it. I don’t think anyone on my team will ever wear it. This is going to be very interesting because they might feel awkward making fun of this Jesus/ultimate tournament in front of me.

Lionel, Mi Amor!

I really should have blogged this much sooner but some of my housemates made a telenova for Lionel’s, one of our other housemates, birthday. Haha, I don’t know if you’ll find it funny but it sure made me laugh when I watched it. I was reminded of Lionel, Mi Amor when Dan, who directed, edited, wrote, etc was planning to shoot another video to promote Lighthouse because housing application start on Friday. That video will also be posted soon.

Gays in the Military

Filed under: bible, politics, video — mete23 @ 5:04 pm

Just read this from Sojourners. Thought I should share it:

One evening, Jesus went on the Chris Matthews show and a large audience was viewing.

As he sat down for the interview, Chris introduced a group of religious right leaders. They brought with them a man caught violating the don’t-ask-don’t-tell policy in the military.

They made him stand before the camera and said to Jesus, “This man was caught admitting that he was gay. The Law of Moses commanded us to stone such men, and military law demands that he be court-martialed. We don’t want to kill this man: all we are interested in doing is passing a law that would criminalize such behavior in the military and in all of society. What do you say? Do you support our pro-family agenda?”

Jesus leaned over and wrote on the desk with his finger.

The Family Research Council representative pressed harder, “Don’t you agree that we should outlaw gay behavior? Don’t you agree that the Supreme Court decision in Lawrence v. Texas which overturned the sodomy laws in this country was wrongly decided? Would you dare to deny that there is a place for criminal sanctions against homosexual behavior?” Jesus kept writing on the desk and didn’t respond.

Finally, Chris Matthews said, “Well, Sir, what do you say? They’ve asked you a question. How do you respond?”

Jesus sat up straight, looked directly into the camera, and said, “Just one thing. Let the one among you who is without sin cast the first vote against this man.”

The reference was from a debate between Aubrey Sarvis, a former gay military sharpshooter and Peter Sprigg, representative of the Family Research Council. The dialogue below:

Matthews:  I’m just asking you:  Should we outlaw gay behavior?

Sprigg:  I think that the Supreme Court decision in Lawrence v. Texas which overturned the sodomy laws in this country was wrongly decided.  I think there would be a place for criminal sanctions against homosexual behavior.

Matthews:  So we should outlaw gay behavior.

Sprigg:  Yes.

Thanks Brian McLaren for rewriting parable. The real parable is from John 8.1-11. People may feel uncomfortable because the parable implies that “homosexuality” is a sin and I can feel the squeamishness from people who don’t believe that being gay is a…shudder “sin.” Anyway, I’m going to stop writing.
