What's wrong with people??

I try hard now not to be so cyncial. Not to be so hateful of my fellow man, but he makes it difficult. Assholes and idiots - everywhere.

I have a very strong sense of justice - of fairness and what is right or wrong. It's a strong Scorpion trait; we have our own strict and unqiue set of morals and beliefs about how things should be, and there's no swaying from that. It may apply only to us, but it is golden.

I'm sick of seeing people get fucked over for no good reason other than half the rest of the world is compromised of assholes and idiots.

For example, a good friend of mine recently got fired from his job because of something completely unfair and ridiculous. He accidentally spilled a little cola in some girl's hair. What, you're waiting to hear the rest of it? That's it. She ran crying to the supervisors, and he was terminated. Wtf?!

In another instance that proves murder should be legal, four women at my office got sick last Friday after eating chicken for lunch at the same place. Violently sick. Their supervisor called the restaurant and got the owner on the phone. Do you know what he said? "Yes, I knew the chicken was bad. I told them to distribute it anyway." Wtf?! For those of you, like myself, who have had food poisoning, this is beyond belief. They called the Board of Health on the restaurant, and I've begged them to follow up on it. Food poisoning like they had (one ended up in the hospital Saturday) could kill a child. What's wrong with people?!

And then to top it all off, I get a forwarded email at work with the subject line, "Please add your name to ban this film!"

I'm thinking, "Oh jeez, what now??"

This is the email:
Please don't allow this film in our theaters!!!!!

A disgusting film set to appear in America later this year depicts Jesus and his disciples as homosexuals! As a play, this has already been in theaters for a while. It's called "Corpus Christi" which means "The Christ Body." It's a revolting mockery of our Lord, and we can make a difference. That's why I am sending this e-mail to you.

Will you please add your name to the bottom of the list at the end of this e-mail? If you do, we will be able to prevent this film from showing in America. Apparently, some regions in Europe have already banned the film. All we need is a lot of signatures! Remember, Jesus said "Deny me on earth and I'll l deny you before my Father".

Hit forward, and when it comes up, delete any e-mail addresses, fill in who you want to send it to, scroll down to the last name (mine), and add yours to the list.

When it reaches 500 please send to: email removed

IF WE WORK TOGETHER WE CAN DO THIS.


I forwarded this email to my best friend, Brandon, who sent me back this (the more level-headed version of the actual play):

Try this on for size!

The New Yorker has called Terrence McNally "one of our most original
and audacious dramatists and one of our funniest." He is the author of
such critically acclaimed plays as Love! Valour! Compassion!, Master
Class, The Lisbon Traviata, and Frankie and Johnny in the Clair de Lune.
In Corpus Christi, McNally gives us his own unique view of the story of
Christ, and in doing so provides us with one of the most vivid and
moving passion plays written. McNally's controversial new play is an
affirmation of faith and a drama of such power and scope that it has
been called blasphemy by the religious right and hailed by audiences and
critics alike as one of his best and most poignant works to date.

Named one of the best plays of the year by Time magazine

and critics alike as one of his best and most poignant works to date.

"One of McNally's best, most moving and personal works . . . His
updating of the Christ story is witty but not patronizing, as sober and
cleansing as a dip in baptismal water."-Richard Zoglin, Time

"Corpus Christi provides a frequently fascinating experience. . . .
[It] explores a quest for faith by a segment of the
population-homosexuals-that has for centuries been excluded and
condemned by the pious God-fearing."-Erik Jackson, Time Out New York

"Terrence McNally's controversial new play is a moving, perhaps even
spiritual experience."-Dick Schaap, ABC World News

Terrence McNally won Tony Awards for Love! Valour! Compassion! and
Master Class as well as Tony Awards for Best Book of a Musical for
Ragtime and Kiss of the Spider Woman. In addition, Love! Valour!
Compassion! won the Drama Desk, Outer Critics Circle, and New York Drama
Critics' Circle awards for Best Play. McNally has received two
Guggenheim fellowships, a Rockefeller grant, and a citation from the
American Academy of Arts and Letters.


Personally, I can't wait to see it! It sounds like a beautiful, spiritual work of art and I love plays. (Didn't you know my second calling, after writing, was in theater?) I hope the conservatives & christians don't get it banned. It alludes me why they can't just leave things like this alone. If you don't want to go and see it then don't. But don't ban others from having the opportunity to see it. Some people want to base their opinions on the work only after actually viewing it. I'll let you know what I think of it then. I'm not going to rally to ban something without the full story; no one should.

While this doesn't fall into the category of "idiots and assholes", I still have a problem with people trying to control others with their personal beliefs. Just my two coppers.
