I was thinking about taboo subjects this morning and then coincidentally this blog kinda of carried the theme to a different place for me. Must be something in the air that we’re feeling thoughtful with less humor today.
What subjects are you most uncomfortable talking about?
On my facebook quite a few people from my past have started appearing. Some friends, some acquaintances. I noticed an odd trend. I have many people on my friend list who are very vocal about their religion. I have quite a few on Xanga as well, but you all are different. For the most part you are people I have met on Xanga. These are people who I knew as a teenager, and don’t know me as an adult and vice versa. So I wonder, what would be the fallout if I posted some inflammatory statement. Perhaps something like,
“I think organized religion is only for people who are not smart enough to make their own decisions”
This is not true, I don’t think that. I actually envy the peace people get from being so entrenched in their churches and organizations. But I do have some other opinions that I think would have almost the same effect. I wonder if I were as vocal as my ultra religious facebook “friends” are, if maybe some of them wouldn’t disappear off of my friends list. I don’t know. Maybe I’m just feeling a little sensitive to it because it seems to be such an overwhelming number of them!
Tomorrow My favorite sexual position, illicit drug, or song. Haven’t decided yet.
