tierneylee: chrisfreshh: I do not care what car you drive, where you live. If you know someone who knows someone who knows someone. If your clothes are this year’s cutting edge. If your trust fund is unlimited. If you are A-list or B-list or never-heard-of-you list. I only care about the words that flutter from your mind. They are the only thing you truly own.

i just read a massively long apologetic write-up about how catholocism beats out protestantism. but yet, the author states over and over again that “we are ONE.” the question i can’t get out of my mind is why then do you care so much about who is right and who is wrong? why write this thing in the first place? who cares, man. if you believe that we are one, then with the grace of...
