As pledged black Greeks, we are annoyed by an influx of people into our respective organizations who don't have a "love" for it. We complain, we wonder what can be done to change this, we wish above ground pledging could somehow make a comeback.

So, I don't understand it when I see men and women say that if their kids don't pledge whatever org they're in, they won't support it. Just because you're an XYZ, doesn't mean your kid will be drawn to it. And if you force them to try and become a member of your org (and they get in), you've just contributed to yet another person who doesn't have the love, but is a member.

Personally, I'd be proud of my daughter, no matter what org she pledged. It'd be particularly appropriate if she became a Delta *smirk smirk smirk*. But seriously, if my daughter felt for another org what I feel for mine, I'd be behind her 100% (or son, lol).

Maybe that's just me...

Some Christians make Christianity look bad.

Today on facebook, I got lightweight ridiculed for asking a question I didn't know the answer to about Christianity and it kinda pissed me the heck off. (People who know me know that angry Kim is very rare.) If you're curious about the entire discussion (and you have me as a fb friend), here's the link:
I really could go on a super rant about ol' dude in particular, but I guess I won't...
I cannot stand stuck-up, pretentious, so-called Christians. Our whole religion is supposed to be about love and kindness and teaching, but when folks come seeking knowledge, they get discouraged in one way or another.
Now, I'm not talking about questioning the existence of God or anything like that...most of my questions and thoughts deal with traditions of the church or faith in action (the power of prayer, etc.). But apparently, some of the things I may ask are "Sunday School 101" and I should delete them...hmph. How am I supposed to learn and grow if I don't ask? And I bet when people have stupid, foolish, superficial stuff in their fb status, you don't tell them to delete it.

If I have something serious in my fb status, don't come on my page being an ass. Contribute something worthwhile or keep your fingers still...then wanna talk about, "I'll be the bad guy if it gets a conversation on this started..." Go away with that martyr crap! You took away from the meaningful convo! You didn't add to it!
/end rant
Sorry. I couldn't help myself, lol. I do feel better though...
At any rate, I reckon (:-P) I'm not supposed to ask questions about religion on my fb page. Fack that. I enjoy reading other people's thoughts and opinions about various subjects (as long as they're coherent and understandable). I think if people were more open to having calm, rational discussion, we'd all learn a lot more.
