"Religious leaders from around the world have the duty and moral obligation to oppose conflicts and promote peace as the only necessity. Religion should never be exploited or used as a pretext for the various conflicts, manipulating fundamentalism for political use. Any crime committed in the name of religion, is a crime against religion."
His All-Holiness Ecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew I of Constantinople (via theorthodoxbritreturns)

Buy these posters and find more from the amazing Repeal Hyde Art Project!

They are so amazing and speak so many truths - when I have my own clinic I’m going to put all of them up on the walls.  So beautiful!

European School, Peru
Portrait of King Lloqui Yupanqui of the Inca
Spain; Peru (c. 1615)
Oil on Canvas, 60 x 55.2 cm.

Although indigenous people ranked below Spaniards in Spanish America’s social order, direct descendants of pre-Hispanic nobility were afforded certain political privileges, including the right to hold office in local government. In order to legitimize claims to noble lineage in the viceroyalty of Peru, members of the Inca elite often conspicuously displayed in their homes Europeanized portraits of their ancestors, the fourteen ancient Andean rulers.
Aunque los indígenas estaban por debajo de los españoles en el orden social de Hispanoamérica, a los descendientes directos de la nobleza prehispánica se les permitían ciertos privilegios políticos, incluyendo el derecho de tener cargos en el gobierno local. Para legitimar la atribución de linaje noble en el virreinato del Perú, miembros de la élite inca frecuentemente exhibían en sus casas retratos europeizados de sus ancestros, los catorce gobernantes andinos.

Are these course grades? When they were looking at the big board, someone said:

If 500 is the total score possible, and Usagi got 52 in one, then I’d be inclined to say that it’s out of five subjects — unless they’re weighted differently, which is very possible, as my ignorance is boundless. Going that assumption, though
DID YOU REALLY SCORE A 10 USAGI
DID YOU REALLY GET A MIDTERM-TYPE GRADE OF 10 OUT OF 100 MY GOD CHILD
Anyone up for translating what the headers are for those scores? I REALLY REALLY NEED TO KNOW WHAT USAGI GOT A TEN IN

i don’t know what the one she got a 10 on is, but the class she got a 32 in is “society”, which
the future queen of the world flunked “society” class.

I dislike it when male fans say that Sailor Moon isn’t a “girl’s anime” and that it isn’t feminine because it has a lot of intense battle scenes. Sailor Moon IS Feminine and it is indeed made for a female audience and there’s nothing bad if men like feminine shows, they just need to stop trying to find excuses on why they like them.
