Error of Man: Tom Ford’s Drake Inspired Lipstick Sells Out

Tom Ford’s Drake-Inspired Lipstick Sold Out Instantly and the Real Drake Knows Why

by stylenews.peoplestylewatch.com

drakeWhat a time to be alive, especially if your name is Aubrey Drake Graham. For those unfamiliar with the endless joy that is the television show Degrassi, that’s the man better known to the masses simply as Drake who also happens to be doing more to raise the profile of turtlenecks than any man since Steve Jobs. But this week, the rapper also proved he’s a beauty empire in the making when the Tom Ford lipstick named after him sold out almost instantaneously.

Apparently, you don’t have to have an infamous pout to sell out lipstick in a blink of an eye, you just need to be the most infinitely meme-able man of 2015. According to Elle.com,  minutes after Net-a-Porter posted the limited edition deep purple hue it was sold out, and Tom Ford boutiques in Chicago and New York confirmed they were also out of stock with no plans to restock anytime soon. All of this should really come as no surprise considering this is the same man who convinced an entire nation that getting emoji tattoos and lint-rolling your sweatpants court side are pretty much the coolest things you can do.

Get A Tattoo Onstage During The Sermon!!

Get A Tattoo Onstage During The Sermon!!

By Steven Kozar | piratechristian.com

“Do not be idolaters as some of them were; as it is written, “The people sat down to eat and drink and rose up to play.” …Therefore, my beloved, flee from idolatry.”

— 1 Corinthians 10:7 & 14

Because nobody can listen to a regular sermon anymore…

tatooSo, let’s think about this for a minute:

The God who created the entire universe from nothing, who was born to a virgin, lived an amazing life full of miracles, teachings and healings, then willingly gave His life on the cross to pay for the sins of all the world, then rose victoriously from the dead… all of that is not good enough to get people’s attention?

But if someone get’s a tattoo onstage during the sermon-that’s gonna make the Gospel message a lot better? If only we would have known this before!

“I didn’t want to repent of my sins, but now that some lady got a tattoo during a sermon, I believe. Plus, it’s easier to pay attention to a sermon while being completely distracted. ”

— Said Nobody Ever

Closing thoughts: If pastors continue this downward spiral, where will it end up? If we say that “people are different nowadays” and “we need a gimmick to get people to church these days” aren’t we just setting ourselves up for even more ridiculous and embarrassing stunts? And if a person comes to church only because they were attracted to the spectacle that made it “new” and “relevant,” what kind of person are we attracting, and why are they really showing up?

Wheaton College Professor Comes Out Wearing Hijab, Quotes ‘Pope Francis’: ‘We All Worship Same God’

Wheaton College Professor Comes Out Wearing Hijab, Quotes ‘Pope Francis’: ‘We All Worship Same God’

By Heather Clark | christiannews.net

Hawkins-compressed-1WHEATON, Ill. — A professor at a prominent Christian university in Illinois posted photos of herself wearing an Islamic hijab this past week, stating that she was doing so to show solidarity with Muslims.

Larycia Hawkins is an associate political science director at Wheaton College, one of the most renown Christian schools in the world. On Thursday, she posted two photos of herself wearing a hijab, and stated in a lengthy explanation that she plans to wear it everywhere she goes during the Advent—including at the Christian college and to church.

“I stand in human solidarity with my Muslim neighbor because we are formed of the same primordial clay, descendants of the same cradle of humankind—a cave in Sterkfontein, South Africa that I had the privilege to descend into to plumb the depths of our common humanity in 2014,” Hawkins wrote.

She said that not only does she have a common ancestry with Muslims, but that Christians and Muslims worship the same God.

I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, a Christian, are people of the book,” Hawkins asserted. “And as Pope Francis stated last week, we worship the same God.”

“But as I tell my students, theoretical solidarity is not solidarity at all. Thus, beginning tonight, my solidarity has become embodied solidarity,” she continued.

Hawkins said that wearing the hijab is part of her Christmas worship, and that she is seeking to combat what she perceives to be “Islamophobia” in society.

“As part of my Advent worship, I will wear the hijab to work at Wheaton College, to play in Chi-town, in the airport and on the airplane to my home state that initiated one of the first anti-Sharia laws (read: unconstitutional and Islamophobic), and at church,” she wrote.

The professor said that her wish for the season would be to see a “large-scale movement” of women wearing hijabs in solidarity with Muslims, noting that she even obtained approval from the Council on American-Islamic relations.

“I invite all women into the narrative that is embodied, hijab-wearing solidarity with our Muslim sisters—for whatever reason,” she stated.

Friends and followers of Hawkins’ Facebook page praised the professor, with some posting photos of themselves wearing a hijab to show that they had joined her movement.

“I too am a devout Christian that embraces my Muslim brothers and sisters as people of the book that worship the same God,” wrote Cynthia Petterson. “Emodied solidarity, I love it! You are amazing Larycia.”

“Thank you for walking this path before us and inviting us to follow. You are a picture of the faith I know and trust,” Paulann Canty stated.

But when reports of Hawkins gesture expanded beyond her Facebook page, others expressed deep concern.

“Wheaton College needs to sit down and have a talk with this ‘lady’ and tell her that the god of Islam was a pagan god, a moon god and is not the same God JEHOVAH that we worship, and that Islam is NOT that peaceful religion that she believes it is,” wrote one commenter. “If she is this naive as a teacher, God help her.”

“She is trying to serve two masters. As Scripture says, we cannot serve two masters because we will love one and hate the other or love the other and hate the one,” another stated. “God is a jealous God and will not share His glory with demons and pagans. I am sad that she is wrongly influencing young people seeking to serve Christ.”
