When I started this blog, I decided that I would try and keep the content knitting-related. There are plenty of other sites out there that talk about politics, current events, reality TV, etc. But then I realized that sometimes the knitting stuff can get monotonous, unless of course you are a super speedy knitter and can finish a lot of cool projects in a month (ummm...not me). So, I decided to start a new section of my site called "Rants". "Rants" will be where I let go about something that bugs me...be it people, tv shows, the weather, ect. I thought it might be interesting to see if anyone else feels the same way I do. I will always warn you of an upcoming rant in the post title, in case you would rather come back another day when I have knitting stuff to talk about. Please leave comments even if you disagree with the Rant. All opinions are welcome.
Rant #1: Bible Readers Who Don't Practice What They Read
Have you ever noticed that the person on the Metro reading the Bible is usually the rudest person on the train? Now, I am not a religious person in any sense, but I respect the fact that religion is very important to many, many people. I was raised Presbyterian, so I have a little, albet rusty, knowledge of the Bible. The Bible is supposed to teach you to be a "good" person...right? How to treat others the way you want to be treated? Just yesterday, (yes, just a few days after the holiday), I sat next to a woman who was reading the Bible and taking notes. Taking notes in her "Bible Notebook". When we were close to her stop, she turned to me and said with a snear "I get off here". No "excuse me" and no "thank you" as I hurried out of her way. She then proceeded to stomp on a poor guy sitting by the door. She actually turned back to give him a dirty look...as if he was purposely trying to slow her down. No "I'm sorry" in sight.
Am I missing something? Has the Bible been rewritten in the past few years, and because it isn't on my wish list Amazon didn't tell me? Did someone invent a new "Rude Religion?" I guess I just expected more from someone with a "Bible Notebook."
