A couple of weeks ago some of my facebook friends started copy-pasting a  status update about some movie that apparently portrays Jesus as a homosexual and so the status urges the reader not to watch the movie and to re-post the status so that people would get to know. The update goes something like this:
“I know you may love watching movies but for Christ sake, don't get tempted. The movie Corpus Christi is due to be released this June to August. This disgusting film is set to appear in America later this year and it depicts Jesus and his disciples as homosexuals! As a play, this has already been in theatres for a while. It's called Corpus Christi ' which means 'The Christ Body.' It's a revolting mockery of our Lord. But, we can make a difference. That's why I am sending this e-mail to you. If you do send this around, we may be able to prevent this film from showing in AFRICA. Apparently, some regions in Europe have already banned the film. We need a l…

Random thoughts on not-so-random people

I have had an amazingly restful week all thanks to the recent lecturer’s strike. Yes, I won’t lie. I was extremely overjoyed at the prospect of having a random unplanned holiday in the middle of the school year. I guess as a medic (Yes, I’m in med school) I embrace any down-time I can get with open armsJ. Although at some point my conscience took over and convinced me to do some studying, it was a pretty well spent week. And the best part was that I managed to catch-up with 2 of my high school besties.    For purposes of this blog I’ll call them LN and BW. So after almost 3 years after we’d cleared high school, we managed to all get together. The three of us, at the same time!! Don’t get me wrong, we’ve kept in touch over the years. Texting, facebook, skype...he he! I even at random points managed to meet up with either of them aver that time period but never all three of us together!! Mostly because we attend three different universities but oh well!! And I think the best part wa…

The scariest thing about blogging

Bloggers and writers the world over may have different answers to this question (And I believe that this applies to writers too). But in my opinion it’s ‘Baring your thoughts and opinions to this bevy of people who can either like it or hate it’. And trust me, people can be very critical!! Just look at any random movie review and you’ll see what I mean. For example some of you may have watched ‘The Avengers’ or ‘The Dark knight rises’ and thought that they were the best movies made this year (Yes, I confess that those are my favourite 2012 movies so far.... :-) ) but somewhere..out there..... there’ll be someone who thinks that they are total crap!


  Hence the reason why I don’t rely on book, movie or music critics so that I can judge whether something is worth my time/money. I like to form my own opinions because in the 2 decades I’ve spent on this planet I’ve learnt that criticism is simply opinion. And opinion can be heavily biased based on an individual’s past experiences hen…
