A smartish office outfit casualised by the addition of a cardigan – the cardigan I was dithering over so much, which has now definitely proved it’s worth though. I’ve got it to about £2-3 a wear and it’s the warmest thing I own, so it’s totally usable as a jacket substitute. This dress is actually a wee bit tight over the hips, and it probably looks terrible from the back, but it makes me feel very Joan Holloway, so I’m sticking with it.
And because this is quite a short post, here’s a random question/observation. One of my colleagues who I’m friends with on facebook posts bits of scripture onto her wall (this is quite unusual in secular Europe). The other day she put:
….everything that does not come from faith is sin. (Romans 14:23 NIV)
I can’t help but feel offended by this. It’s saying the exact same action can be good or bad, depending on whether it is done in the name of God or not. Like all the good things done by non-believers are worthless, and in fact less than worthless. They are sins. I am an atheist with a very strong sense of right and wrong and it really bothers me when religious people imply they’ve got some sort of monopoly on morality. What precicely is the purpose of putting something like that on Facebook if not to say exactly that?
Sorry, that was a bit of a downer, but it’s been bothering me since she posted it.
Hope everyone has a lovely weekend!
