Christmas is a time be Merry.

So have a laugh at all the religious people sharing scripture about dividing families while simultaneously being hypocrites...

Here's an angry rant I posted on facebook in 2013 about christians knee-jerk sharing religious scripture without actually bothering to read into the context:

--

The lord said:

"If you deny me in front of your friends, I will deny you in front of my father."
- Derived from Mathew 10:33 (and related to Mark 8:38 / Luke 9:26 )

You are not denying god by neglecting to share a Facebook quote. You are giving into guilt. If you've got to share a snarky quote, why not ones more apt to the subject?

"Be careful not to practice your righteousness in front of others to be seen by them. If you do, you will have no reward from your Father in heaven." - Matthew 6:1

Or why not feel guilty for something that actually has some truth to it?:

"Do not be like the hypocrites, for they love to pray standing in the synagogues and on the street corners to be seen by others. Truly I tell you, they have received their reward in full." - Matthew 6:5

Or quote something entirely not in the bible:

“The devil can cite Scripture for his purpose.
An evil soul producing holy witness
Is like a villain with a smiling cheek,
A goodly apple rotten at the heart.
O, what a goodly outside falsehood hath!”
― William Shakespeare, The Merchant of Venice

Please stop sharing things on the grounds of Mathew 10:33.

This line in Matthew is so divisive. The next couple of lines in Mathew are pretty aggressive too. [ Seriously, read it!]

Why bother sending something that pulls at your guilt? There is no need to spread something like that. its one step away from outright telling everyone they are going to hell for denying god.

Lets ruin our family ties in the name of Christ. Does this sound like something Jesus would do?

For a season that is meant to bring people together, it upsets me that there is all of this stuff floating around that is really about families being torn apart because of religion.

I wish we could just ignore these parts of the bible - the ones that set man against man and sow disharmony.
I wish we could just be happy together.

"Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with actions and in truth."
John 3:18

So i'm going to be doing this:
https://github.com/Nicholas-Perry/Britomartis

I have passion, interest, motivation, and skill; Why not turn it into something real? I figure I won't get bored given that I've basically spent a year doing this shit for fun anyway.

I might branch out to google+ at some point if I can pull enough money together to get a machine it can actually run on.

"The good news?  This will light a fire under creating real reputation mediation services, a potential billion dollar business (and I know the secret sauce) – and don’t let anyone tell you that reputation companies already exist.  They are jokes." - David Brin
Of course this had to come. Yelp for people: You will soon be able to rate anyone you have interacted with on this new app: with reviews and 1 to 5 star ratings assigned to "your exes, your co-workers, the old guy who lives next door. You can’t opt out — once someone puts your name in the Peeple system, it’s there unless you violate the site’s terms of service. And you can’t delete bad or biased reviews — that would defeat the whole purpose."
