    pewinternet:

    A new Pew Research Center analysis of media coverage of the event and subsequent protests finds that the story emerged on Twitter before cable, but the trajectory of attention quickly rose in tandem, peaking on both mediums the day after two journalists were arrested and protests turned more violent.

    Also of note:

    • MSNBC devoted far more time to the story than its top competitors Fox News and CNN
    • The Twitter conversation about Ferguson popped much more quickly than the conversation about Trayvon Martin

    if you go to hell for being bad why wouldn’t satan reward you for it why does he make you suffer wtf id be like hell yeah motherfucker you my nigga lets party

    i started to laugh and then i realized that this is actually a really valid question

    Alternatively, if Satan punishes sinners, why isn’t he considered good?

    If the Pope dies, is he being promoted or fired?

    We’re becoming self aware

    1) The Pope is being returned at the end of a lease.

    2) One of the theological interpretations of the role of the Devil is to create temptation, and in that, they play the role of an assessor. They are an agent of Heaven, who offers the individual a chance to reject the path of righteous. Should that occur, Heaven gives you a counteroffer (reconciliation, forgiveness, last rites, take-back, and do-over). Get that wrong, and you’re in the theological hotspot.

    The rationale for not treating the Board of Assessment as a positive element is that there’s a points scoring contest - the Devil gains a win for stealing one from Team Heaven, and is allowed to cheat (and does cheat, if required, and rules lawyers like nothing else).

    See also the PR team for Heaven noting that the Big G is a jealous god, and is not going to be happy with someone else getting the limelight.

    tl;dr: It’s complicated

    In a study of injuries in 90 patients injured by rubber bullets, one died, 17 suffered permanent disabilities or deformities and 41 required hospital treatment after being fired upon with rubber bullets.
    — So when the cops claim this is a humane, legitimate crowd control tactic, they’re straight up lying to your face. Don’t let them bullshit you. (x)

    James C. LewisIcons Of The Bible

    The series, which will be fully released in October, features 70 models who identify as either Asian, Native American, Hispanic, African, Middle Eastern, Black American and West Indian.

    "I think it is very important to see one’s self in the Scripture so that it may become real in their eyes," Lewis told The Huffington Post. "The whitewashing of the Bible has always bothered me. However I’m happy to now have the opportunity to give a different point of view."

    "I wish to exhibit a splash of color onto the biblical pages of history with my creative embellishments. By doing so I hope to open the minds and eyes of the ignorant and create open conversations of how we can learn to see the world through colorful lenses. After all, the Gospel of Jesus Christ is intended for everyone."

    For those who’d like to see the entire collection, “Icons Of The Bible” will on display from November 2014 to February 2015 in Atlanta, GA.

    I’m trying hard to live by Cat Principles.

    1- I am glorious above all things
    2- Eat when hungry, sleep when sleepy, play when bored
    3- Affection is given and received on my terms and only mine
    4- Show displeasure clearly.
    5- NO
    6- Demand the things you want. If they aren’t given, demand them again, but louder this time.
    7- If you are touched when you don’t want to be, say so. If they continue to touch you, make them bleed.
