Religious persecution is stupid

Religious persecution is stupid! You hear? Stupid! I don’t understand what makes anyone think that you can force somebody else to adhere to your religion. You came to this earth alone and God will judge you alone. So I don’t see how your neighbour’s ‘unbelief’ or ‘wrongdoing’ will affect you. Aren’t you supposed to be worrying about your own wrongdoing? And don’t look at me like you haven’t got any.
   I mean sure, the Bible charges Christians to spread the Gospel. But it doesn’t tell them to hold-people at gun-point and make them pledge allegiance to Jesus! Our job is just to tell them not force them. Remember that verse where the disciples were told to shake the dust off their feet at a town where they weren’t welcome?
Luke 9:5
New King James Version (NKJV)

 And whoever will not receive you, when you go out of that city, shake off the very dust from your feet as a testimony against them.”

Plus the whole idea of being hateful to others is pretty much contrary to Biblical teachings…

The other side of public transport

Matatus are great a most of the time. They can get you where you need to go in record time while avoiding most traffic jams. But they do have draw-backs. This is a list of the things I absolutely hate about matatus:

1. When they play reggae music - This might offend some people but That stuff is depressing. And it puts me to sleep! Especially roots (Kindly refer to your music dictionary) #TrueStory.

2. When they turn on the speaker effects so that the beats literally pass through your chest - That feeling, it's not a heart attack...just inappropriate sound effects playing football with your internal organs! 0_o

3. When the play old school rap music that punctuates every sentence with an f-bomb and worse – At this point in time you are very glad that you’re mother is not there with you. You also feel very sorry for all the people your mother’s age who are sitting in the vehicle as you watch them shift uncomfortably in their seats.

4. When the conductor conveniently 'forgets&#…

Relationship cravings

Gosh I really need a boyfriend! I am not the first girl in history to have this thought and I certainly won't be the last. It happens when you're feeling sad...or want someone to vent to....or are lonely...or everyone around you seems to be in coupled bliss. And you only see the sunshine and rainbows that come with having a significant other. You only see the cuteness and the mushiness and the happiness. You are ready to settle for anything with an XY chromosome that has no aversion towards you.

   But you forget that he may have annoying habits. He may be rude to your family. He might have nothing in common with you. You might fight. You might not like his choice of friends. You forget that relationships are messy. You forget that there is a good reason to be picky about guys. You don't have to be 'happily married' at 22, a few more years won't kill you. You don't have to settle just for the sake.

Dear middle class Kenyan

Dear middle class Kenyan,

Please, thank you and excuse me. 3 little words that are the difference between you and any well-mannered pre-schooler. Your arrogance is paralleled only by your over-inflated sense of entitlement. You claim to be educated but after witnessing your total lack of social etiquette I have to conclude that your education must be in some way incomplete. You think that because you happen to have a salary that is on the upper side of 100,000 you now have cart blanche to treat anyone who is 'beneath' you like they are trash.

In fact, I recently witnessed one of your shenanigans at a mall. A man and his wife were standing behind a security guard in a lift. When the lift stopped on their (the man and wife's) floor, he told the guard to ' move his ass' so they could get out of the lift. Poor guy hadn't even noticed that they wanted to get off. This is exactly what I'm talking about. But I suppose a simple excuse me would have killed him! It …
