Anonymous asked:
hi i'm not sure who was wrong here but i thought i'd ask a third party. well i was having a conversation with a christian friend who's rather open minded and accepting, i respect her views and vice versa. in the conversation i mentioned that there were different types of satanism and that the official church does not believe satan exists and she told me to shove it just for pointing out the misconception that they had rituals. i wasn't trying to convert her, did i fuck up?

I wouldn’t say you fucked up. Interfaith relationships, romantic or platonic, risk stepping on toes unexpectedly. If you feel comfortable enough and value her friendship, you should talk to her about it again. Be sure to apologize and ask what you should or shouldn’t do in the future. Make sure you specify that you didn’t mean to hurt her or insult her in anyway, but that you’ll be more careful about that topic in the future.

Hopefully this can open up even more honest discussion between the two of you.

Koshi Kawachi’s “Note Drawing.”

Artist Koshi Kawachi, inspired by his surroundings, put musical staff lines across various cityscapes and mountains, dotting each point with the resulting music note.  The result is a fascinating, organic piece of music that comes from pure artistic imagination.  Watch a video below of the notes being played!
