Anonymous asked: what do you think of Papal Infallibility?
1. I try not to, if I can avoid it.
2. I’m sure you’d rather not know…
3. Wait, did they open for Arcade Fire in 2004? If so, they were not memorable.
4. It’s overrated and hyperextended.
5. It’s really worth considering how and when the concept was boiled down and set into stone, in the mid-19th century. And why.
6. The way it is currently understood, especially by the santo subito type ultramontanists, is perhaps the biggest obstacle to both unity between East and West and within the West. ~problematic~
7. This is a trap, isn’t it?
It’s always a trap
So, about a year ago I got really into thinking about theology, morality, and food and wrote an extensive post on how The Fall affects how we eat and how Christianity and ethical eating is something to be concerned with..
I just want to say… I am nauseated. I was listening to The Blaze radio today, and they mentioned that a lot of places in the United States are now using medical waste as fuel at power plants. I guess it could be considered a logical next step because medical waste is usually incinerated anyway, but this medical waste includes aborted fetuses.
And apparently, they are doing this in order to curb the use of fossil fuels in California.
Anyway, I’m a firm believer in checking sources, especially when it’s shocking (this is something I really wish people on tumblr would do more often), and as I was googling “aborted fetuses used as…” I stumbled on something I don’t think I will forget.
At the top was “aborted fetuses used in Pepsi.”
Holy shit, right? and so I looked it up and learned a lot of FANTASTIC stuff about the use of aborted fetuses in the production of various products, and it’s not just Pepsi, and it’s not uncommon.
Apparently there was this controversy I completely missed that happened in 2011, but since then, Pepsi has decided to not use products from Senomyx that contain flavors produced using fetal material. However, there are a lot of companies that still use these products, such as Nestle and Kraft to name a few.
So please look this stuff up, because it’s terrifying, and please eat ethically.

Today marks the one-year anniversary of the Rana Plaza disaster in Dhaka, Bangladesh. More than 1,100 people were killed. As detailed in this story, some progress has been made in improving conditions for Bangladeshi factory workers, but there is still a long way to go, particularly as large American retailers like Target and Wal-Mart haven’t signed on to the international inspection agreement. (They say they’re doing their own inspections.)
The victims’ fund also remains critically underfunded as many brands that bought clothes from the factory—including JC Penney and Benetton—have failed to make contributions.
