Tides4Fishing lists tides and other weather info for quite a few spots in the Northern (and Western) Hemispheres of this beautiful blue globe at this link. Sure wish they had an app. Tides Near Me is a good app for local tides, but not much else.
When you're black there's like no religion to turn to. It's like, Christianity? I don't think so. White people justified slavery and segregation through Christianity so a black Christian is like a black person with no fucking memory.
I can indeed hardly see how anyone ought to wish Christianity to be true; for if so the plain language of the text seems to show that the men who do not believe, and this would include my Father, Brother, and almost all my best friends, will be everlastingly punished. And this is a damnable doctrine.
Whenever we read the obscene stories, the voluptuous debaucheries, the cruel and tortuous executions, the unrelenting vindictiveness, with which more than half the Bible is filled it would be more consistent that we call it the word of a demon than the word of God. It is a history of wickedness that has served to corrupt and brutalize.
