• Today was my last day working for UVA Football. I’m pretty bummed about it. There have only been two times I’ve been sad about graduation coming. First, when I left JPJ after the end of the last home basketball game. Second, today. My college experience, the last two years especially, has been defined by the sports. I have loved it, even when I did hate waking up for practice or getting stepped on by the giants that are football players. I would have never guessed that sports would be such a huge part of my life, but I’m so glad I found them, especially at this school. I know this past season was rough for this football team, but I look forward to seeing where they’re headed. Hopefully Greyson can lead the team to a much better season than last. I won’t be on the sideline, but I’ll be screaming all the same.

    Nice try, but completely non-factual.

    "Blacks make up 16.6 percent of Florida’s population but account for 31 percent of the defendants invoking the stand your ground defense. Black defendants who invoke this statute are actually acquitted 8 percentage points more frequently than whites who use this very same defense."

  • Okay, okay, I’m going to tell you what Hermione sees in Ron.

    A trio is a balancing act, right? They’re equalizers of each other. Harry’s like the action, Hermione’s the brains, Ron’s the heart. Hermione has been assassinated in these movies, and I mean that genuinely—by giving her every single positive character trait that Ron has, they have assassinated her character in the movies. She’s been harmed by being made to be less human, because everything good Ron has, she’s been given.

    So, for instance: “If you want to kill Harry, you’re going to have to kill me too”—RON, leg is broken, he’s in pain, gets up and stands in front of Harry and says this. Who gets that line in the movie? Hermione.

    “Fear of a name increases the fear of the thing itself.” Hermione doesn’t say Voldemort’s name until well into the books—that’s Dumbledore’s line. When does Hermione say it in the movies? Beginning of Movie 2.

    When the Devil’s Snare is curling itself around everybody, Hermione panics, and Ron is the one who keeps his head and says “Are you a witch or not?” In the movie, everybody else panics and Hermione keeps her head and does the biggest, brightest flare of sunlight spell there ever was.

    So, Hermione—all her flaws were shaved away in the films. And that sounds like you’re making a kick-ass, amazing character, and what you’re doing is dehumanizing her. And it pisses me off. It really does.

    In the books, they balance each other out, because where Hermione gets frazzled and maybe her rationality overtakes some of her instinct, Ron has that to back it up; Ron has a kind of emotional grounding that can keep Hermione’s hyper-rationalness in check. Sometimes Hermione’s super-logical nature grates Harry and bothers him, and isn’t the thing he needs even if it’s the right thing, like when she says “You have a saving people thing.” That is the thing that Harry needed to hear, she’s a hundred percent right, but the way she does it is wrong. That’s the classic “she’s super logical, she’s super brilliant, but she doesn’t know how to handle people emotionally,” at least Harry.

    So in the books they are this balanced group, and in the movies, in the movies—hell, not even Harry is good enough for Hermione in the movies. No one’s good enough for Hermione in the movies—God isn’t good enough for Hermione in the movies! Hermione is everybody’s everything in the movies.

    Harry’s idea to jump on the dragon in the books, who gets it in the movies? Hermione, who hates to fly. Hermione, who overcomes her withering fear of flying to take over Harry’s big idea to get out of the—like, why does Hermione get all these moments?

    [John: Because we need to market the movie to girls.]

    I think girls like the books, period. And like the Hermione in the books, and like the Hermione in the books just fine before Hollywood made her idealized and perfect. And if they would have trusted that, they would have been just fine.

    Would the movies have been bad if she was as awesome as she was in the books, and as human as she was in the books? Would the movies get worse?

    She IS a strong girl character. This is the thing that pisses me off. They are equating “strong” with superhuman. To me, the Hermione in the book is twelve times stronger than the completely unreachable ideal of Hermione in the movies. Give me the Hermione in the book who’s human and has flaws any single day of the week.

    Here’s a classic example: When Snape in the first book yells at Hermione for being an insufferable know-it-all, do you want to know what Ron says in the book? “Well, you’re asking the questions, and she has to answer. Why ask if you don’t want to be told?” What does he say in the movie? “He’s got a point, you know.” Ron? Would never do that. Would NEVER do that, even before he liked Hermione. Ron would never do that.

Living in Bablyon (#cmdevo #DanielsDevotion)

Read Daniel 1:1-21

There are many strong and wonderful women to learn from in the Bible, but there are also some great men who can be examples as well. The Book of Daniel can be a powerful influence because Daniel lived in a time and place that was hostile to worship the true God. The Babylonians conquered the land of Judah, carrying off Judah’s most beautiful and intelligent youth back to Babylon to learn the language and religion, and to serve the king. Daniel and three of his friends were taken to Babylon. Unlike the others, they refused to become part of the Babylonian world. They refused to deny the God they knew to be true.

We do not live in Babylon - and should be grateful for that - but we do live in a culture that is often hostile to the one true God. Our culture will tempt us time and time again with things that corrupt our minds and bodies. Sometimes, we take part in these things without fully realizing the impact they can have on us. Daniel did everything he could to guard his mind and body. Babylonian culture was characterized by its amazing excess; it was a rich country controlled by luxuries. Daniel recognized this and refused to take part. This began with refusing the King’s food. Daniel decided not to let the food - and the Babylonian culture - “defile himself” (v. 8). When Daniel made this promise, he could not imagine the challenges he would face during his life time; despite it all, he remained faithful to God. 

The world gets to each of us in different ways because we all have different strengths and weaknesses. What part of our culture most challenges you to “defile yourself?” The first step of resisting temptation is understanding where it strikes you. It is important to lean on the Body of Christ in doing this. Daniel did not stand alone in resisting the influence of Babylonian culture; his three friends stood with him and they were all protected by God. 

Take some time this week to examine your own heart and find out where you are most often tempted. Resolve not to defile yourself and find someone in the Church to partner with in battling that temptation. “Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.” (Gal. 6:2).
