im tired of people using god to justify their prejudice
Leviticus is a list of old laws that were never relevant after its time period so when people pull Leviticus to back banning gay marriage just remind them Jesus said nothing about gay marriage but he exclusively condemned divorce.
Thank you for that ^^^^
The thing that pisses me off most about people calling on Leviticus (at least Christians.) is that they are old laws that were supposedly put into place to punish us for our sins thus far. When Jesus died to cleanse us of our sins, it wasn’t just about our future sins and the ability to ask for absolution…. but to be free of our previous sins. So, a Christian quoting the old laws is like saying… Sorry Jesus, your sacrifice just wasn’t good enough because it doesn’t allow me to justify my hate and want to torment someone else because I personally disagree with it. (which is the God Damnedest sin.)
This brings my rant to one of the golden rules that we as Christians claim to live by. “Thou shalt not use MY name in vain.”
That doesn’t mean “Jesus Christ! Oops, don’t use his name in vain, LoL!” It means don’t use God to justify your hate mongering. It means don’t claim God hates this or that or allows you to hurt others because you say he does.
The hugely common misinterpretation of this pisses me off to no end because it’s an incredibly insulting, OBVIOUS misinterpretation of it to please one’s self.
I am an atheist and I approve of this message.
I am a Christian and I approve the SHIT out of this message.
BTW Leviticus also forbids tattoos but that never stopped most of the Christians from getting inked so… Why pissing people off over their love and rights!
Listed under: things my religion class teacher(s) thought it would be good to never teach us
Leviticus is an ancient rulebook full of stupid rules. So, news flash, if you touch a woman sexually within 7 days of her period (before or after) you are unclean and will most likely go to hell.
Went through all this scripture in my Christian Ethics class
I’ve been sick so I haven’t been drawing, but I’m a little better tonight so I wanted to get these guys out of my head.
The top one is a ram character I’m working on. I love bats, and I love my bat character, but personality wise I’m really more of a ram, so I’m kinda doing an alternate personality fursona I guess?
The bottom dude is an old character of mine, Joy the Dragon. He used to be my fursona and a she back before I came out and I’ve kinda abandoned him, so I’ve decided to give him a face lift. I’m changing quite a few things about him, but he will still be the same at his core, and I miss drawing dragons so it’ll give me an excuse to do so again. Also it should be noted that Joy doesn’t actually have a name, he’s called Joy simply because that’s what he is, Joy, Jubilation, he is the essence of happiness essentially. He’s not a true being, he’s an emotion taken on a physical form if that makes sense. Sort of like a spirit I guess.
Cool Mixer Brush Techniques for Photoshop Painting
An interesting technique for the mixer brush in Photoshop, picked it up from Mathias Verhasselt, a fantastic artist who works at Blizzard. You should follow him on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/mverhasselt/
Presenting the magic of the mixer brush from PS CS5 and upwards. Sadly CS4 doesn’t have this feature. A very interesting video which gives a great deal of insight into industry methods. These are tricks and shortcuts to painting normally. As always, it’s best to have a firm understanding of the basics before you depend solely upon these methods.I’m usually pretty tentative about posting non-WIP stuff in this blog, but I figured that art things were still relevant, and this is one Pach linked me to in the recent past that I’ve been really fascinated by. I had no idea the mixer brush even existed before I watched this video, but it’s a trick that’s actually proved very useful to me already in screwing around PS during work stuff. Good to know, fun to play with!
I’ve been playing with this tonight thanks to your suggestion, thank you Han! I have yet to really get the hang of it myself, but with some practice I can see this being a majorly useful tool for me to block stuff in to refine later.

Thank you mystery stranger for having the courage to deface these LGBTQIA posters around my friend’s school because she was too shy to do it but is now immensely grateful for the change

Illusion of choice
It’s called the ‘Lykoi’. Due to a genetic mutation in a domestic shorthair cat, the Lykoi has no hair around its eyes, nose, ears and muzzle, giving it a werewolfish appearance.
