Celebrating the ongoing life

778 notes

We should make Easter a forty-day celebration. If Lent is that long, Easter should be at least that long, all the way to Ascension. We should meet regularly for Easter parties. We should drink champagne at breakfast. We should renew baptismal vows with splashing water all over the place. And we should sing and dance and blow trumpets and put out banners in the streets. And we should invite the homeless people to parties and we should go around town doing random acts of generosity and celebration. We should be doing things which would make our sober and serious neighbors say, ‘What is the meaning of this outrageous party?’

Vladimir Ilyich Lenin’s Birthday - 22 April

"22 April.  

Yeah, the commie Lenin.  That’s why it has become freakin’ “Earth Day” — a step toward normalization of the celebration of the day, I guess. 

Lenin.  As in Marxism-Leninism. 

And everything he stood for.  Ally of Trotsky, fergodsake. 

“Father of Modern Genocide” — that would be a good historical tag line for this monster. 

Every time I hear something about freakin’ “Earth Day” I see Lenin’s pinched little face.  Filthy little wax dummy.  Ick. 

Lenin puts the “V. I. L.” in the “EVIL” of history.”
