If it meant me being bestowed upon with supernatural skills like burning the souls of those who don’t deserve to live a la Ghost Rider, I would go as far as making a deal with the devil. My soul’s destiny would forever be locked to hell, and for as long as I live, my only purpose of physical existence would be to hunt down people who only think of themselves and end them. I would see things before they happen. I would be there to prevent them. Every minute of every day would be devoted to internal rage, and flesh-ripping terrible people would be my primary emotional output.
For the good of all mankind I will sacrifice my entirety into eternal torment. I shall hear every scream of every soul as they descend to the fires of hell.
Because seriously, I’m tired of being helpless. I’m tired of sitting idle while people tell me of tragedies people go through from the cancers of society. I’m tired of being fueled with hate and anger. And the most that I could do is write about it.
A good neighbor of ours, an elderly woman in her late 80s, lost 100,000 Philippine Pesos. How she lost it I found hard to believe. On local news it has been said that a group of people put her into a trance through hypnosis, took her out somewhere, and made her “just give” the money. It is also worth noting that I’m pretty sure she’s not mentally ill.
I sat really still while my inner devil screams that I let it out.
I could not do a thing.
Satan, if you’re listening, you know what to do.
I grew up disagreeing to millions of things my family tried to condition me with. A bulk of these involve religion, and the rest are just old people opinions stuck in the past with no consideration whatsoever that not everything stays the same.
There is absolutely nothing I can do about this.
Talking will not go anywhere, because:
- They’re older than me, therefore I am wrong 
- All things set equal (age, perhaps) with the exception of spirituality, changing one’s views would be difficult. If not, impossible.
- I don’t want to, anyway. This will break their hearts because they tried to raise me into a very religious Roman Catholic.
The least I can do, however, is to avoid making the same “mistakes they did – force molding, as I call it.
Assuming that I do plan on getting married and having children, here are three things in my plan to free-form my future children:
1. The choice of religion will be up to him/her.
Of course, I am going to get him/her baptized as a Christian and teach him/her to love, fear, respect, and believe in God. I will not, however, drag him/her to go to Sunday masses. Instead, I will explain what the church is and why we need to be there, and the choice will be up to the kid.
Obviously, going to church is not just about kneeling, standing, sitting, and responding to whatever it is that the priest tells you to do. Going to church is being with the community and not being an asshole. The people are the church, and judging from it’s current state, most churches FAIL at that. Do note that the church is the collective term for the people in it so you can see where I’m putting the blame.
