The Church is founded on Peter who denied Christ three times and couldn’t walk on the water by himself. You are expecting his successors to walk on the water. All human nature vigorously resists grace because grace changes us and the change is painful.
Flannery O’Connor, letter to Cecil Dawkins, 9 Dec 58

derangedhyena:

I only make horrible things.

Here is a horrible short comic based on real things. (the more you know about Lolita/Tokitae and Hugo the more sense this will make.) 

Tokitae still lives in a ridiculous shit tank that small, by the way.

I admittedly don’t know the circumstances of Hugo’s actual demise (I couldn’t find anything about the event itself.) But factually: he did die of a brain bleed, and he was known for bashing his head on the walls. Probably related.

Because happy animals habitually bash their head into concrete walls for fun, right?

The truth of the matter is: these two huge animals were put in a relative goldfish bowl to jump around for human amusement. How do you think they felt about that? 

They can’t possibly have any real concept of what’s going, or gone, on. How would they? 

Please don’t support marine circuses, and definitely don’t support the shithole MSQ. (There is absolutely nothing anyone can do to improve my opinion of that place.)

How Do You Think It Feels

when all you can say is if only?

Pain is nothing compared to what it feels like to quit.
