Kidist Paulos Asrat or Kidist P. Asrat as she likes to be known in her professional ventures, is the blogger behind cameraluc.blogspot.com and kpasrat.blogspot.com , beautyforbodymindandspirit.blogspot.ca and has contributed to the American Thinker.
Kidist was born in Ethiopia and identifies herself with the Amhara people and considers herself to be Caucasian. Kidist and her family fled Ethiopia around 1974 after the fall of Emperor Haile Salassie. At the time Kidist was roughly 11 years old, the family moved first Paris and then London, and the United States after which they finally settled in Canada. Today Kidist lives in the multi-cultural hub of Toronto, a fact in itself that is baffling with her views.
Kidist works at a clothing store; however there is speculation that she must have family money or support to fund her lifestyle and travels (mainly to NYC).
Kidist is a firm believer in belief that her blog is an intellectual treasure trove, dealing with high-class fashion, architecture, art and social issues affecting North America (Canada & The United States). Not only is her work of a very high quality but greatly appreciated.
However her blog reads far more as her own personal diatribe against, Gays, Muslims, Liberals, Women, Asians, interracial couples and immigrants. Kidist is all for equal opportunity hating.
Kidist's Greatest Hits/WTF Moments:
As a child Kidit presented flowers to the Emperor, this memory is clearly very important to her and has possibly allowed her to build up her elite status in her mind now that she lives in a world far from that of her childhood.
Kidist is not of the opinion that Asian's can understand or play classical music or dance in the ballet. Her expertise in the matter is the fact that she has studied, violin, piano and sung in classical choirs in her youth. The fact that the National Ballet had Chinese principal ballerina, performing in 'white roles' appears to cause her much rage.
Kidist is creepily obsessed with the child of her neighbors, a young white couple they have a child who is approximately three years old. This little boy has a Chinese caretaker/Nanny. Kidist is not pleased by this arrangement and is constantly spying on the child and caretaker, and approaching the parents to 'warn' them. She is also very worried that the caretaker is attempting to lure the child into accepting other races to the point where he will marry an Asian woman.
Not understanding the presence of Native American's in the Thanksgiving Parade.
Immigrants of the Asian/ Muslim persuasion
Kidist has a lot of pent up rage for immigrants, these range from delightful complaints that they are spending more money that herself to the fact that they bring their own language and culture to Canada. Women who dress in their native attire and speak their own language trying to ruin the real Canada (not the native Canadian's mind you). Immigrants ruin the prices of homes and bring with them their own food and scents changing the landscape. Multi -cultural Canada will be the death of Kidist.
Kidist enjoys attacking the Obamaâ€™s (everyone including Bo is fair game), apparently The President is incapable etc and Michelle and the girls have appalling clothing choices.
Kidist occasionally ventures an opinion on movies and award shows. Popular Movies = bad, especially if they have a tinge of race to them. Oh and Tina Fey has a potty mouth.
Kidist is friends with Lawrence Auster and Laura Wood (The Thinking Housewife), and keeps in touch not only by email but has visited them. She treats their words and thoughts as high intellect and quotes them regularly.
Kidist also goes out of her way to not only stare and complain about interracial couples to people serving her in restaurants but does the same for Gay couples. The lack of response she receives from others is perceived by her to be agreement and she appears to be convinced that Canada is full of people who like her are appalled by interracial couples, gays and immigrants but are too cowardly to say so publically and need her to speak out.
Kidist doesn't allow comments on her blog. While you can email her, she is very quick to threaten to report you to the HRC ,the dissonance is strong with this one. You are however encouraged to contribute to her endeavors at publish a book.

How much is the markup on that hideous top? Do they even realize these are produced in China? So much for ‘Murica first
This really chaps my hide. I'm so tired of fundy rightwingers like the Bates lecturing folks about traditional American values and how we are supposed to revere small towns and small businesses and then all they do is funnel money to Chinese sweatshops.

It must have been raining in Germanton, NC last night, because church was indoors, in the kitchen chapel:
Oh Lord. I know church is wherever people gather, but wow. The kitchen? (I'm not near Germanton but it's been almost chilly and misty rain for a couple days here, so yeah probably rain.)Quote
Between the noises, I think I hear a woman ask prayers because she has a cold, and keeps feeling like she's going to throw up, and she feels that way right now.
Can we say Covid symptoms? Because those are Covid symptoms. I don't wish ill on anyone, but if they all come down with it they were asking for it.Quote
It's a miracle!Quote
KJV: Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.
BGV (with a little help from Gary's phone): Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, (Dukes of Hazzard Dixie car horn ringtone) and I trust also - and ah trust also are making manifest in your conscience (long pause, staring at bible) . . . yeah, making . . . therefore.
LOL OMG. I am not surprised that's his ringtone. If I ever heard that in the middle of a service I would have to suddenly leave before I burst out laughing.
Not gonna lie, I loved that show when I was a kid. (I am a couple years younger than Gary, I think.)Quote
"Music is the biggest killer in our independent Baptists today."
What? I'd love to hear more detail on this from him. It'd be more interesting than "how do you smell to God".
Although he might be right - singing is a way to really project those Covid-infected microdroplets a good distance. And much of their music is so badly done it kills any enthusiasm people might have for the service.Quote
"Becky come to the piana" is missing from his final wind-down tonight, since there isn't one. But, since they're in a kitchen, I'm surprised he didn't just substitute "Becky, come to the stove."
I would have expected "Becky, come make me some dinner."6 hours ago, forgetmenow said:
I'm trying to picture what a baptism looks like there. Does everyone crowd into the bathroom? If they only have a shower stall and no tub, are they Presbyterian?
Well last night it was probably raining, so they could have gone out and let God do the sprinkling for them.
But really, it's Gary's people. They probably dunk you in a water trough out in a pasture somewhere, or stick you in a barrel and push your head under. Kids small enough can go in a metal washtub.

One of the more fascinating things to note, though -- John Piper, of all people, called them out (paraphrasing somewhat) as being more focused on the Kingdom of Trump than the Kingdom of God.
I read his book MAGA Seduction and found it quite interesting. Yes, it has a religious bent but it was refreshing to know that not all Evangelicals are falling for this crap. And yes, its the worship of Trump at the expense of God.

would Erin's clotting disorder exacerbate her covid? I thought covid was causing bad blood clots etc. It's so much worse the Bates not taking covid seriously if they already have multiple daughters at higher risk.
I believe her clotting issue is exclusively related to pregnancy and not one that she has at any other time. I don't remember if she has Factor V Leiden or Antiphospholipid syndrome.
