10 things that DO and 10 things that DONT

First up, the 10 things that DO bother me, that some people think shouldn't or wouldn't.

  1. Smacking and eating with your mouth open.
  2. Rude kids.
  3. Arrogance, especially in preachers.
  4. Choosing to remain ignorant.
  5. The "us and them" mentality in the church between white and black people.
  6. Using any kind of sexual imagery to sell God.
  7. excuses.
  8. Materialism and consumerism disguised as prosperity theology.
  9. The confederate flag.
  10. Mixing church and state, like endorsing a candidate from the pulpit.

Now, the 10 things that DON'T bother me, that some people think should or would.

  1. If people cuss, even in front of my kids (we work in the inner city with teenagers and I have family members; that could out cuss EMINEM)..my kids have heard it all.
  2. If you think I'm weird.
  3. cigarettes smoke.
  4. people who call be a liberal.
  5. people who call me conservative.
  6. Drunk people.
  7. If you fart, cuz I can't smell.
  8. If you let your 9 yr old daughter shave her legs or wear make up.
  9. when my sons say Nuts or Butt.
  10. If my kids are around Lesbians and Gay people (cuz' we've had the talk, and they know that they are to love gay people just like they love their cousin that lives with her boyfriend).

I agree with these. I have to say that selling God with sex or anything gets on my nerves. And the cursing doesn't bother me. Working at a restaurant has also opened my eyes to the entitledness in some people. Unfortunately, many church people are like this. I just don't get it.
