I will be the first to state, that I am not religious. Sure, I have my beliefs, but I don’t attend church services at all. Growing up in a Pentecostal, then Baptist, then Non-Denominational household, was definitely an interesting experience as a kid, that I wouldn’t want to relive. Currently, Lent is being observed across the country, and I’ve pretty much never understood the point of it all, but who am I to judge what/how people choose to do w/their religious beliefs. I actually only thought it was something Catholics observed, but apparently I was misinformed. I guess I should have paid attention more in church.
Of course, Lent has become a trending topic on Twitter over the past couple of days. I’ve read a few funny tweets about what people have planned on giving up, and a few that were actually serious.
I’ve even tweeted once or twice about Lent, in a jokingly way of course. A friend of mine has decided to mix Lent with Ramadan and has given up sugar filled beverages before Sunset. I’m pretty sure that’s not how Lent is supposed to work, but whatever works for him I suppose.
Even a few celebrities have decided to make sacrifices during Lent. I’m not sure how many will stick with them, but below are a few:
Kim Kardashian will unwillingly leave black men and music alone during Lent. Unfortunately, I feel she’ll probably fail at both, miserably.
Justin Timberlake will give up on making over priced jeans, that no one purchases, and his acting career, to finally focus on making a comeback with his singing career. Seriously, people
black women are tired of Robin Thicke already.
Speaking of tweeting nonsense, Tyrese, will avoid twitter at all costs, until he learns to spell and construct a grammatically correct sentence; that does not include giving fucked up relationship advice.
Of course, none of these are true, but wouldn’t it be a great day if they were actually true?
