In the ragey news, a Belgian fucking archbishop:
The Archbishop who is seen as a conservative does not pull his punches. Speaking about AIDS he says that this is a kind "immanent justice".
He compares AIDS with environmental challenges and points to man's responsibility for global warming.(source
Gee, so nice to know there are still people who ~*don't pull their punches*~ and exploit other people's suffering to write a pretty lousy narrative about divine punishment and hellfire. Incidentally, if another Catholic cries that non-Catholics and Catholics shouldn't attack the church so vehemently because this too ~*hostile*~, maybe they should STFU, because it's the church that condones the above sort of behaviour and worse, and still claims that woman becoming a priest is the direst tragedy equal to child abuse. The church should
be attacked: it's an obsolete hierarchic institution that does and has done very little good, and in turn supported crusades, inquisition, slavery, reactionary political systems and dictatorships, cares only about ~*unborn life*~ and funny titles. I have nothing against people who believe in the Catholic stuff, but the church has to fucking change or go.
, why do you have to do this~~ Every time something scary/uncanny is about to happen he always, always writes:
りん、と鈴が鳴った。(Ding, rang the bell)
So, like, OK, whatever, I got used to it in the Kyougokudou
series, but he also uses this all the time in Kousetsu Hyaku Monogatari
, and it completely ruins the mood by constantly reminding the reader (well, perhaps it's just me, though) that the story is just a story written by the same person who wrote the Kyougokudou series, and who is fond of "rin to rin ga natta"-sentence as a stylistic device.
I don't even know why I'm reading Kyougoku's stuff, since it's only moderately interesting, some of the books are far longer than they should be, and some are terribly boring (nothing happens; the characters keep having uninteresting one conversation for 50+ pages, too much exposition, cliches, misogyny). The exorcist!detective who doesn't believe in unnatural explanations, and uses some pomo/cognitive sciencey explanations instead is sort of cool at first, but then, IDK, it gets rather repetitive.
The anime adaptation is also absolutely horrible. It's totally pretty, but I fail to see the point of a film in which everybody just keeps ~*talking*~. All. The. Time.
I need less raeg in my life srsly
