Literature
Are the Amish a Cult?
Before I begin, I want to establish that I don't hate Amish people. A lot of people who live near Amish villages are fiercely loyal to them and may be offended by me even suggesting that they might be a cult. But please hear me out. In my experience, they're very kind and gentle, treat their animals humanely, and they have good, wholesome values. They also make wonderful food and gorgeous furniture as a bonus! But all that said, I won't deny that I've had questions about their beliefs for years, and I think I'm finally ready to write something on the matter. If I get any facts or their beliefs wrong, please correct me. My goal is NOT to slander them. I think their religion and lifestyle should be tolerated and respected just like any other non-harmful religion in my country, but I believe nothing is above criticism. As my watchers are all well aware, I even criticize the Christian church from time to time, and I'm a Christian! So no, I am not saying I hate Amish people when I an

Pixel Heart Speech Bullet by Momoko-chu ABOUT ME Pixel Heart Speech Bullet by Momoko-chu
I'm a Christian artist who specializes in animals, fantasy artwork, and portraiture. My other studies include philosophy, hermeneutics, and environmental biology (emphasis in zoology.) I'm not perfect and I've made mistakes just like everyone else, but I try to put the past behind me. We can't change the bad things that have happened. Life stinks sometimes, so laugh at it! I aim to be a positive influence on others, but I won't deny the evil that exists in the world. I want to help spread love and joy.

I have a very tender heart, and I have and will stand up for the voiceless, be them human or animal. I have obsessive haters because of this, but haters gonna hate! I've been bullied verbally and have even received death threats from said bullies, although they deny it and try to shift the blame on me, all in typical bully fashion. If you've been bullied, I really sympathize with you. Words can hurt worse than anything, but don't give up! Always remember that there are people out there who care about you even if it looks like the entire world hates you. If you need someone to talk to, feel free to message me! You are not alone. :hug:

I also have a strong sense of justice and I value purity very highly. I think that's why I love unicorns so much, aside from the fact that they're happy, sparkly horses! They stand for many things I believe in: compassion on helpless creatures, sexual responsibility and restraint, and caring for the environment.

NLD: I have been professionally diagnosed with non-verbal learning disorder (NLD), which means that I have difficulty picking up on social cues, reading between the lines/picking up on subtext, etc. I speak very literally. It doesn't affect IQ or my ability to perceive reality. Sometimes I say things that may come across as angry or harsh when I don't mean them that way. I'm actually a very goofy, happy person by nature! Most of the time when someone gets offended by something I said, it's because they read something into it that I never said nor meant to say (remember, I speak literally). If I ever say something to you that hurts your feelings, please tell me. I acknowledge that I have difficulties in this area, and I don't want to hurt anyone.


Pixel Heart Speech Bullet by Momoko-chu ADOPTABLES / COMMISSIONS Pixel Heart Speech Bullet by Momoko-chu
My commissions are currently CLOSED. I'll reopen them hopefully in December and then again in May, but right now I'm very busy. I'm sorry!

I make dragon species adoptables that anyone is free to purchase, and I take requests for art. I currently accept both points and actual currency (PayPal.) Because I'm usually working on several different projects at once, please don't expect your request to be finished overnight. If you have a deadline you need it for, please let me know. Thanks!

Pixel Heart Speech Bullet by Momoko-chu BLOCKING: Pixel Heart Speech Bullet by Momoko-chu
I am pretty easy-going and I don't enjoy blocking people, but I will block people if
A) I feel threatened or unsafe by their messaging me (such as if they are stalking me, they have or are threatening to steal personal information, etc.)
B) they are exceeding hateful and/or are spewing childish insults (I don't mind opinions and respectful disagreements, but hatred is a different animal, and I want no association with it.)
C) they have exhibited willful ignorance and they are pushing that ignorance on me.
D) a debate has turned into an is-to-is-not type of fight / they're repeating themselves like a broken record without taking my position seriously / they're repeatedly strawmanning something I have said.

As you can probably tell, all these things have happened to me before. If you believe I have blocked you unjustly, you may *respectfully* contact me through a *neutral* third party. I understand that I frequently misunderstand people (it comes with having NLD,) but if you respect me, I'll respect you, even if we disagree about something. I do not block people for disagreeing with me. Anything less than a *respectful* attempt to mend a relationship is block evasion and is against DA etiquette policy.

However, as I believe in second chances, I generally unblock people after a period of time.

The above episode of the show Horseland is probably one of the best episodes of a kids' cartoon that I've ever seen. Almost all kids' shows touch on bullying, learning disorders, etc., at some point, but few are this plain and to-the-point.

The story centers on Chase, a boy with dyslexia. Unlike most children's shows, Horseland actually names the learning disorder specifically, and then goes on to give encouragement to kids who have it, along with strong admonishment to kids who might make fun of or bully kids who have learning disorders and/or mental illnesses. Often times kids don't catch on when a show is merely hinting at mental disorders, so I think it's great that it actually stated exactly what was going on. Kind of like My Little Pony: Testing, Testing, 1 2 3, this episode could be a massive encouragement for kids struggling with mental or learning disorders of any kind, but especially to those who have dyslexia. Imagine how a dyslexic kid would feel watching this, especially if he/she has ever been bullied. Here's a kid going through the same (or at least similar) things they've probably gone through, and here he's learning how to work with his disorder to make himself stronger. This episode could help a dyslexic child realize that they're anything but stupid. They're just different, and there's nothing bad about being different!

And then to top it off, the dog Shep tells all kids flat-up never to bully, and never to support or even allow bullying. Most kids shows touch on bullying, but few are this explicit. It also acknowledges one of the most common places that bullying takes place these days: the internet. I mean, come one! When was the last time you saw a children's cartoon address cyber-bullying? I wish kids' shows were all this applicable to life.

I personally know how hard it can be to grow up with a learning disorder, especially one that can make you look clueless at times. I have non-verbal learning disorder, which basically means that I just don't understand things that are non-verbal. I speak literally, and sometimes figuring out what other people are saying is like trying to crack a code. Sometimes I misunderstand sarcasm, or, most frequently, people read unintended meaning into my (very literal) way of speaking, which generally results in them getting offended. Essentially, they're offending themselves, but it still doesn't make the situation any easier. It was very problematic on Facebook. You can read about my former Facebook struggles here. When I was growing up, I had little to no encouragement or understanding from friends or family. Seeing an episode of a show I watched that had a character going through similar problems would have made my day back then, and here Horseland is trying to do something just like that. It's about dyslexia, not NLD, but the motive behind the episode remains the same.
"There's nothing funny about laughing at somebody. If you see a friend doing it, ask them to stop. If you see it on TV or the internet, turn it off. Let's make this world a nicer place."

Oh my goodness, who's excited for the new Netflix-Dreamworks show Spirit: Riding Free? Unfortunately we know almost nothing about it as of late, but from what I've seen of the pictures, it looks absolutely adorable! I hope it follows in the footsteps of Horseland in that has at least sort of realistic horse behavior and the like. I mean, obviously the horses look like they might be able to talk, or at least talk to each other, and it's a kid's cartoon, so realism won't be exact, but I hope it at least tries to be sort of believable for people who are familiar with horses. Horseland had inaccuracies, like how to help a horse with colic, when it's safe to leave your horse untied, etc., but it was surprisingly accurate in other ways, such as equestrian vocabulary, showing rules, general horse behavior, and other things.  I also hope this new show has 2-D animation similar to the movie Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron. I personally don't like 3-D animation unless it's very polished. Since they have a painting as their promo picture instead of a CGI image, I'm guessing it will be 2-D. UPDATE: Oops, it's 3-D. That's disappointing. Pretty much everything is 3-D these days, and the original movie it's based off of was 2-D. On the upside, the camera angles, the way the characters move, etc., is all very remeniscent of the original, which I think is really cool. While I would have preferred 2-D, you can tell they put effort into making it similar. It also helps distinguish it as its own storyline that's independent of the original. Teaser trailer: m.youtube.com/watch?v=XUB3TzNe…

If I had to guess (but I could be wrong) I think the three main girls will represent three common American Western ethnicities: Native American, Latino, and Caucasian.


Inspired by the movie Spirit Stallion of the Cimarron!


From what we can see from the picture, it looks like it's inspired by Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron, but that it's not meant to be a sequel. A lot of people are upset because "how could they change Spirit like this??" and whatnot. They didn't change it, though. This isn't like The Lion Guard (for the record, I like TLG). This isn't Spirit from the movie. It's just inspired by the movie. For example, the horses are not the same ones from the movie. This Spirit has a blaze, the pinto is not Rain, and the palomino is not Esperanza. According to the toy releases, the pinto's name is Boomerang (a stallion or gelding, not Spirit's girlfriend), and the palomino's name is Chica Linda (no known family relation to Spirit). Even more evidence that this isn't meant to be a sequel to the movie is the fact that the girls are wearing modern clothes. There's no way the Spirit from Spirit: Stallion of the Cimarron could be that old. Horses only live about 30 years, usually less in the wild.

This show has been getting a lot of hatred from fans of the original Spirit, and it hasn't even aired its first episode yet. I think this is because fans have been wanting a Spirit II for years, and they've developed an idea of what that will be. Naturally, this show doesn't fit their idea. But so what? This doesn't affect the Spirit we know. It doesn't change anything about him, his story, the other characters, etc. Literally nothing about the original movie has been changed. The only thing this could possibly mean is that Spirit had a foal (but we kind of assumed that already, so what's the big deal?) There is still the possibility of them making a Spirit II. For all we know, this could just be DreamWorks testing the waters to see how the Spirit franchise is accepted.

And all the same, why spoil the fun? Even though it isn't the sequel we've been waiting for, it still has the potential to be a perfectly good show. We had Spirit when we were kids, and now our kids have a chance to have a Spirit for themselves. Riding Free isn't aimed at us; it's aimed at kids. Let them enjoy it. :)

Possible characters in the series, according to a set of Breyer toys:

Spirit - a buckskin horse with a white blaze

Lucky - an olive-skinned girl with dark brown hair

Abigail - A light-skinned girl with short blonde hair

Boomerang - a brown pinto stallion with brown eyes

Prudence - A dark skinned girl with dark brown hair

Chica Linda - a palomino mare with a light muzzle and slightly clipped hair

Señor Carrots - a donkey


I feel like I shouldn't be this excited for a cartoon but...too late! :la:

A little before Valentine's day, I was driving home from work and heard a radio program where a preacher was talking about marriage. He said a lot of good and true things, like how we should invest in our spouse deeply and such and be willing to talk to each other to work through problems, but I was caught off guard and shocked by his statement that (and I'm quoting him here): "sex is the glue which holds a husband and wife together." Okay, what even. Sex is glue? Glue? Seriously? That's what this preacher thinks of marriage? Look big guy, if your marriage needs to be glued together by sex, it's broken. If your relationship with your spouse will fall apart if you can't get into their pants, you've got serious issues. Sex is NOT the purpose of marriage, it is merely one of many optional forms of love expression. Sex is NOT the basis of marriage, marriage is the basis of sex.

DISCLAIMER: This journal isn't about whether or not married couples should have sex or how much sex they should have. On average, married people have it about once a week to once a month. Once a week is on the very high end of the range and is most commonly seen among young couples hoping to conceive. www.everydayfamily.com/how-oft… This journal is addressing the myth that sex will cure a failing marriage or that sex is what makes marriage...marriage.

Sadly, the idea that marriage is all about sex is hugely prevalent all over the world. It's an extremely worldly attitude that has infiltrated the Christian church, as shown by this preacher's statement. The idea that anyone, Christian or not, would get married with idea that sex will hold their marriage together is...horrifying, to say the least. When you think about it from that perspective, it's really no wonder that failing marriages and divorce rates are skyrocketing at a rate never before seen, even in the Church. People everywhere are depending on sex to do things that it was never meant to do. Living for sex is not healthy and belies an obsession and quite possibly a harmful addiction. A relationship that is dependent on sex is not a healthy relationship.

I've heard countless people of all creeds say the same thing: that sex is some kind of inherent need for a married couple, typically saying that it's the husband who has the "need" for "physical intimacy." There's nothing wrong with enjoying it, but needing it is an addiction. It also equates that person with an animal. These women are literally saying that their husbands are no better than animals. Although this idea is unspeakably sexist, many husbands and husbands-to-be actually agree with it! What the..?! These men WANT to be thought of as animals? Well, two can play at that game. *Forgets how to use the toilet*


 God does not command sex ever.


He allows it in marriage. He does not command it. The command to "be fruitful and multiply" (which is nearly always used by Christians to defend the Doctrine of Sex-Based Marriage) was to a very specific group of people during a very specific time, first when there were only two humans on the entire planet, and again when there were only eight, and sex was not the point of that command: preventing human extinction was. There are over 7 billion of us now. We have followed that command. It's a thing of the past. Bringing it up as an excuse for basing your marriage on sex is to take it out of context, and is a logical fallacy, quite a ridiculous one, really.

 If there were ever decisions in marriage that need to be highly collaborative, they are decisions about when it is wise to have sex. Wives will often bear the results of contraceptive and reproductive decisions in their very bodies in a way that husbands will not. The husband therefore has the responsibility to hear, receive and weigh his wife’s thoughts with love and compassion. If she's says she doesn't want to (no matter the reason), that should be the end of the story. The same goes for if the husband says he doesn't want to. The final decision should ALWAYS lie with the person who doesn't want sex, not with the person who wants it. To command anyone, within or without a marriage relationship, to have sex, is the definition of rape. And as I made a long, detailed stamp about the Bible and rape, we know where God stands on that (if you haven't seen that stamp, here it is: the-cynical-unicorn.deviantart….)

Supporters of the Doctrine of Sex-Based Marriage quote a short passage in 1 Cor. 7:2-5 to make this claim, but they take the verse out of context. I will quote the entire passage (1 Cor. 7:1-6): 
“Now for the matters you wrote about: “1 IT IS GOOD FOR A MAN NOT TO HAVE SEXUAL RELATIONS WITH A WOMAN. 2 But since sexual immorality is occurring, each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband. 3 The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. 4 The wife does not have authority over her own body but yields it to her husband. In the same way, the husband does not have authority over his own body but yields it to his wife. 5 Do not deprive each other except perhaps by mutual consent and for a time, so that you may devote yourselves to prayer. Then come together again so that Satan will not tempt you because of your lack of self-control. 6 I SAY THIS AS A CONCESSION, NOT AS A COMMAND.” (NIV) 
Interesting, huh? Almost every single person who brings up this Bible passage to preach sex sex sex leaves off the first and last verses. Paul is permitting couples to have sex. He is not commanding couples to have sex. He allows it. Sex is not the most important part of marriage, and thus it should never come before another person’s well-being. Love does not equal sex. Obviously Paul is not recommending complete abstinence within marriage, but also neither is he commanding that couples sex it up every night like many Christians believe. Thus, sex should NEVER be what glues your marriage together. 

Some Christians may also tell you that sex is a picture of Christ's love for the church, but that's a false analogy. Nowhere in Scripture is Christ's relationship with the Church portrayed as errotic. It is portrayed as loving leadership, like the family structure of a husband and wife, but never errotic. Some people point to Song of Solomon as an example of eroticism, but Song of Solomon is clearly describing Solomon and one of his wives (research the history of the book if you don't believe me.) It is not an alagory of Jesus and the Church. To even imply that Jesus has or had a sexual relationship with the Church is blasphemous, to say the least.

On the subject of Song of Solomon, some supporters of the Doctrine of Sex-Based Marriage will use it as supposed "evidence" that the purpose of marriage is sex. I hate to burst their bubble, but where exactly does it say that? Oh yeah, nowhere. To say that Song of Solomon tells us that marriage is all about sex is to say that a cupcake cookbook tells us that the sole purpose of eating is to eat only cupcakes. Do you see the problem there? Both Song of Solomon and a cupcake cookbook present sex in marriage and eating cupcakes as good things, respectively. But to say that the purpose of marriage is sex or that sex is meant to glue your marriage together will result in an unhealthy relationship, just like a belief that the purpose of eating is to consume cupcakes will result in an unhealthy lifestyle. Neither thing is wrong, but they are not what you should base a relationship or eating habits off of.




"If marriage doesn't necessarily require sex, what separates it from normal friendship?"


Lots of things, but namely the fact that those two people have comitted to live together and remain faithful to each other for the rest of their lives. Whether or not they have sex, what makes them married is their faithfulness. An elderly couple who can't have sex anymore or a couple where one or both if them is paralyzed are still married. What makes them married is their emotional commitment to each other, not whether or not they have sex or even care about sex.

The reason we don't have sex with our normal friends is because
A) it has HUGE consequences that wise people would only want to risk in the most stable of relationships,
B) because most friends aren't emotionally close enough to feel comfortable doing it,
C) people generally don't want to be thought of as sleeping around, and
D) God forbids it.
Marriage is separated from normal friendship in that it is the closest human relationship possible. The two people agree to live together for life and not to love anyone else that strongly (sex or no sex). With regular friendship, both parties are free to have other equally close friendships with other people. They are also allowed to live with other people should they so choose. In the end, sex is not what separates marriage from regular friendship. It's basically just a nice bonus.







As I wrap this up, I'd like to share a quote from one of my friends:
"If marriage were a pizza, sex is the dipping sauce you dip your leftover crust in."
It cracked me up when she said this, but it explains the truth so well. There's nothing wrong with dipping sauce, but it's not meant to be the main point of a pizza, nor does it hold the pizza together. It's something optional and enjoyable on the side that you dip your leftover crust in. You can have a perfectly good, enjoyable, and functional pizza without dipping sauce. Now obviously if you really, really like dipping sauce, the allegory sort of breaks down, but I think you understand the point she was making.

To answer the preacher, no sir, sex is not the glue that holds a husband and wife together. Love is. Sex does not equal love. Sex is merely one of many, many forms of expressing love. You can't properly express love if you don't properly love someone, and an expression of love, especially if you're confusing the expression for the thing itself, will not bind two people together. It will ultimately hurt their relationship, which is exactly what we're seeing day in and day out with the massive spike of failing marriages. Hoping to use an expression of something to instigate or sustain the thing itself is to put the cart before the horse. It just doesn't make sense. If you want to marry someone because you think they're hot, maybe wait a few years. After all, hotness changes over time. A person will not look or act the same 25 years from now. You need to love someone, not lust after them, in order for a marriage to work.

When Live Action caught Planned Parenthood in 2011 attempting to aid and abet sex traffickers prostituting 14- and 15-year-old girls, Planned Parenthood told the media that it would retrain thousands of staff to identify and report child sex traffickers.

But a new Live Action investigation shows that Planned Parenthood’s claims were nothing but a bald-faced lie!

In fact, former Planned Parenthood manager Ramona Treviño recently revealed to me that the abortion giant instead used those sessions to train staff how to identify undercover journalists investigating its facilities! Click here to watch:

Live Action also searched public records to check the abortion chain’s 2011 claim that it had reported the suspected child sex traffickers to authorities. The responses from law enforcement show that Planned Parenthood failed repeatedly to report the suspected crimes to local police departments, state police, or even child protective services.

When confronted with sex traffickers, it’s clear that Planned Parenthood cares more about protecting its image than protecting children. This is just more proof that taxpayers shouldn’t be forced to fund a ruthless corporation that puts profit before people. 

We need to do all we can to spread the truth about Planned Parenthood, especially in the face of the defunding debate in Congress. Please share our new investigative video on Facebook to expose as many people as you can to its message. And for your friends who aren’t on Facebook, email them this link. 

Thank you for standing with us in the fight against Planned Parenthood.

Yours in the fight for life,

I like most of the DA layout changes, but I don't like how everything we post is automatically put into Featured artwork, and then you can't take it out of Featured once it's there. Not tryin to be negative, here. Just a little annoyed. Anyone else feel this way about the new submission system?
EDIT: Nevermind, someone showed me how to use it! :)
Today, President Trump signed the order to defund International Planned Parenthood! While there is still a lot of red tape for him to get through to defund Planned Parenthood's domestic chains, he is holding true to his word thus far. American tax dollars are no longer being funneled into overseas convenience abortions. Before you panic, abortions done for the life/health of the mother have not been affected (they are still governed by the individual countries, performed in hospitals, etc.) If Planned Parenthood's domestic chains are defunded as well, women will still be able to get needed health care in numerous other facilities all over the country.

How many "tantrumps" do you think the anti-Trump peeps will put on tomorrow?
Don't expect to be respected by young people if you don't respect them. Contrary to popular belief, being older than someone else does not automatically place you in a position of authority over them. Instead of belittling them, treat them like adults. Weigh their thoughts and ideas as equal to your own instead of shoving them to the side as if they are incapable of using logic and reason. Ephesians 6:4, 1 Timothy 4:12.

Some parroting idiot still says that Genesis "condones" rape, because God didn't stop the people from sexually assaulting Lot. 

"By not stopping it, it allows it. But okay."

How would reply to that? 

I am course talking about CanineKisses. comments.deviantart.com/1/4805…

Tell him to stop allowing child abuse, sex slavery, child marriage, animal abuse, subjugation of women, etc. When he says "I don't allow them!", tell him that he allows them because he hasn't stopped them. If he brings up God's omnipotence, ask him how a lack of action equals active support of something. If he continues to claim that God supports raping Lot because He didn't stop it, tell him that he needs to stop the world's humanitarian crisis before the conversation can continue. After that, don't reply, no matter how much he might bait you. It may be best to block him if you'll be tempted to reply.

What would you think of a story where, in the 2,000 years since the last book of the Bible was written, Satan has sat down and reevaluated his life choices, and now sides with God against the demons the same way that Malcom X eventually sided with King against Black Islam?

basically red dead redemption with supernatural spirits.

That would be very interesting! It would need to be done very carefully, because people might think that the author was taking Satan's side in the entire matter.

Not really, since the entire premise of the story is that Satan himself is switching to God's side.

Yeah, but people still might think it, because, well, people. A lot of people believe that anything involving Satan shouldn't be touched. I can see where they're coming from, but I don't entirely agree with it.

I guess you can comment on my profile. My bf isn't gonna care he won't see it. I'll also explain block evading to him if he does see it.

Oh, I really don't want to get wound up in something like that. Block evasion is very serious. I've been accused of it once before (falsely accused, but accused all the same), and I don't want for there to be even a chance that my reputation could get smeared again.

If it's that much of a big deal for him, I'd much rather talk to him myself. His perception of what happened is very off (because he only knows part of the story). The only way to fix this situation is to talk. He's just trying to protect you. Sneaking around behind him will only hurt him, and if he believes the block-evasion story, then it will make me look bad. It would be much better if he would be willing to email me.
