Oprah the depressing one

Yesterday I flipped on the television during the afternoon and caught Oprah. What a downer that was. She had this show about 'The Mistake I Can't Take Back' and it was a downer of a show.

The reason it was a downer was because it was totally depressing and the reason Oprah had the show was to help the rest of us from making stupid mistakes like her guests did. I suppose that's a good reason, but she didn't offer the HOPE that her guests could've had.

One guest decided to drag race with a stranger, at night, and he got in an accident and killed two innocent people in another car. One of those people just happened to be his own mother! Another guest decided to not strap in her children one day when she was in a hurry to get home, and she got in an accident and her child died. Sad stories, and yet what was even sadder was that these guests said that they would never be able to forgive themselves for the mistakes they made.

That's sad, and I can totally understand why that would feel like an impossible task. The good news though, that Oprah didn't share, was that Jesus could and can forgive these dear ones for the mistakes they made. He can cleanse their guilty conscience and make them new creatures in Christ. Too bad Oprah didn't mention that, her show would've made a bigger impact.

Yet, another sad truth is that the Church rarely mentions it, so then again, why should we expect someone like Oprah to spread the news when she probably hasnt' heard it herself.

Church, that's our job. Use Christmas wisely and let people know that Jesus was born to forgive them for all of their mistakes....intentional or not.

Wow....even Oprah says she's not into your brand of christianity, that which would demonize these people for making honest mistakes. I am so fucking sick and tired of christians telling me how to live, and that Jesus is the fucking answer to everything. On the corner of the neighborhood where I just moved to there is a church that LITERALLY had the sign out that said "Jesus Loves You Even Though You Don't Deserve It"......what a load of bullshit. There are other schools of thought than stupid Jesus ok? THere are OTHER PEOPLE In the world, and YOUR LAME ASS EXCUSE for a religion is not the answer.

That's a pretty self-righteous post. The very notion that "Jesus" can relieve pain is a big fat lie. This was just your opportunity to slander a "Hollywood Liberal". If Jesus came back, he'd kick your ass for that little stunt.
