What are your thoughts on the new Pope? Is his humbleness just some marketing strategy from the Vatican?
Displays of piety are always a marketing strategy, and let’s not forget that this asshole considers himself to be the infallible voice of god on earth. If you’re impressed just because he doesn’t wear the shiny red shoes, you seriously need to adjust your definition of humble.
My favorite movie is Roman Polanski’s Cul-de-Sac, a fact which shocked my boyfriend, who said that he refuses to watch any Polanski film because of the rape charges. So, Coquette, can you separate the art from the artist?
Of course. One can and should separate the art from the artist. That still doesn’t change the fact that you’re a pretentious douche with horrible taste in movies.
I can’t get across my college campus without some mouthbreather hassling me about going to church. I usually smile and say no thanks but it’s getting harder. Should I just tell them what I really think sometimes? I’m a very stringent atheist who feels that abrahamic religions do far more bad than good. Or should I just find new ways to keep my cool?
Moments like that are a golden opportunity to practice the art of keeping cool while looking someone dead in the eye and telling them to fuck off.
