Faith [01 Apr 2006|09:10pm]

I was wondering if any of you straight edge kids belong to any faith, could be anything, Christian, Jew, Muslim, whatever.. and if so, what do those in your faith think of your decision of being straight edge..

We've all heard the communion debate so there's no reason to bring that up, its been beaten to death anyway.

In the little kiosk that sells belts and stuff, there's one that says xxx. Considering buying it. Not sure though.

okay so this really has nothing to do with straight edge but i'd thought you'd appreciate the story because of the situational ironies...

so i work in a grocery store and i transferred back home to pflugerville, tx for the winter break so i could spend time with family and friends... keep in mind this town is 2 exits north of the infamously liberal Austin, TX.

story one- I was checking a gentleman and his wife out and they handed me canvas bags to place their groceries in so that i didnt use paper. The bags reaked of cigarette smoke...yuck!... so i threw them down the belt so my bagger could use them... i countiues with the order and at the end of the order the man starts lecturing me about body mutilation and the Bible (my lip is pierced)... so i started thinking... especially since i grew up in a Roman Catholic home... i didnt say anything to the man... there was nothing i could think of to say that wouldn't have gotten me fired... so i smiled and thought to myself at least i'm not mutilating my organs and i will live and not subject my Temple to pain and suffering through cancer sticks.... ugh...

story two- I was once again checking out a man he was older 60's and looked like a farmer he decided that he would make the comment is that (the lip ring) a form of torture or repentance... i ignored him, smiled and handed him his change... he then pushed it by saying "you didnt answer my question"... so i got pissed... so i answered to him "I do my repentance in the Catholic church"... this pissed him off and as he left i noticed he had bought beer from me... humm... i might be ignorant about a lot of things but drinking is specifically addressed in the Bible... and at least my liver wont quit on me :)

i think it's amazing how we always assume the worst based on apperances... and it's amazing to me how pure my body is in comparison to the two organ mutilators...

Question [25 Dec 2005|09:00pm]

[ mood | disappointed ]

I'm straight edge (obviously) but my girlfriend isn't.. Anyways, last night I called her and asked her how everything was going at home (she's gone home to visit her family for Christmas) she said good.. Anyways, the convo goes on and I jokingly said, "no one got drunk this year!" 'cause last year, my mom did and her brother did.. which sucks. I hate being with drunk people. So after I said this, she pauses and goes: "um, well.. " At which I go :\ did..you get drunk? she said she did, and that she had like 6 or 7 daiquiries, i think thats what it was anyway, doesn't matter much what alcohol it was, just that she had it.. She knows how I feel toward her and alcohol and just alcohol in general actually..

She said after that, "well I had a killer headache this morning.." I said good.

Would this make me an insensitive person? Because like, you could be the most amazing person in the world, even my best friend but if you were telling me how drunk you got and then paid for it the next morning and came to me looking for pity.. you sure as hell are not going to get it.

[ mood | lil' help? ]

I started playing piano for an Episcopal church, and if you don't know, one of the rituals of the church (unlike my old Baptist church) is to have Communion service. But instead of using grape juice, the Episcopalians use real wine and everybody in the church has to do it: including me. I don't actually drink the wine, but just dip a cracker in a glass of wine, so I'm not consciously drinking the wine, and I usually get the smallest dip I can. I told the lady that hired me that I was straight-edge and that I had strict regulations on alcoholic consumption and she said that she would tell the Reverend and it would be okay, but it's been 2 services already and I've been dipping the bread in the wine twice now. I'm not sure if this is one of those ridiculously insane communities that doesn't believe in like, taking Tylenol or what-not, but I need your input.

Have I sacrificed my straight-edge mentality a bit too much or what? Keep in mind that this is a religious function, so God will have mercy on me and all.

"guilty of being white" minor threat [16 Jul 2005|11:37pm]

[ mood | lethargic ]

in the slayer version it ends with
"guilty of being white
guilty of being right"
does anyone else find they'r trying to use the song to promote racist hatred?
i do.
the minor threat version i hear as anti racist but i have friend who finds it more negative and a provocative of racism and i guess i see where shes coming from, racism and race is always touchy subject.

whats your say on this song?

why are YOU straight edge? [16 Jul 2005|01:44am]

[ mood | tired ]

I am because alcoholism runs in my family, I've seen it firsthand in my mom, it disgusts me and I don't want to be like that.

Hello [29 Jun 2005|10:25am]
[ mood | tired ]

Hello My name is Hansue. Im 18 years old and i live in the state of michigan. Im moving from saginaw to detroit for college!

Ive been straight edge for three years. I never done drugs, smoke,drink, or promiscious sex. I've always thought that those things would lead me to a path that i knew would be hard for me to come back into.

My family respect my lifestyle. they think its a great thing for me. Im trying to explain the whole concept of straight edge. they know a bit about it but im trying to tell them taht is a big commiment, that im staying straight edge for the rest of my life.

Most of my friends aren't straight-edge, so its hard for me to talk about it around them. i do have some, but they all live kind of far away from me.

My name is Caroline, and I am the moderator of this community. I am from the Detroit, Michigan area, and I am straight edge. I am 17 years old, and claimed edge when I was 15. I am also a member of the livejournal community sxe. I suggest checking it out, there are a lot of members and opinions and frequent posts.

I want this community to be open for people who have questions about straightedge, discussions about the lifestyle, and sharing personal experiences. It is an open community, so you don't have to be accepted to join or to post, but I'd appreciate it if people attempted to be open-minded toward others who think differently.

Anyway, welcome to the community.
