so like, I saw one of the miniseries (not sure which one) a long time ago under the pretense that it was actually something of Jane Austen, only to find out I was very wrong.
And then today I saw the late 80s version after forgetting most of what happened in it and… just…
First of all: It irritates me so much that more often than not Christians are portrayed as extremely religious, cruel, manipulative, obsessed with shaming people to hell, unloving, and either stoney-faced and rude, or a blabbering idiot, naive and stupid.
Yes, there have been, and still are (unfortunately), people who are just taking the title of “Christian” or “Priest” and are just without a relationship with God and so spit out all these scriptures without teaching and without true love or learning, or they’re so hurt and cruel that they say things like (from Jane Eyre)
"Do you know what happens to naughty children who lie? They go to the depths of the fiery hell. Do you want that? Then you must be shunned and unloved and shown that you’re lower than everyone else because of your cruel upbringing and mistakes and everyone will be told of your shame.”
Yes, lying is a sin. But you have to show kindness and love to people. Let them know that God DOES love them, and He doesn’t WANT you to go to hell, He wants you to repent and know that you can be in a loving relationship with Him, and that He won’t hold your sins against you or even remember them, or remind you of them (as long as you’ve repented).
Secondly: Mr. Rochester is so weird? Bipolar? idk. He lies about his crazy wife, kind of tries to force Jane to marry him, breathy-shouting about how he can only live and love as long as she’s with him (super weird and unhealthy), and refuses to acknowledge that he’s still married and wants to marry Jane, even though his wife is locked in the attic.
ok yes again I KNOW it’s only fiction but I dunno it’s just so weird
like, he’s not even the sort of anti-social weirdo that Darcy is, he’s… just… weird. And sometimes looks like he’s plotting to murder you.
I admit that it was kinda cute when he opened the doors to the hall and paced back and forth waiting for Jane to finally come running down the stairs and into his arms and they were all smiley and happy.
it is so nice outside where i live i wish i could go hiking and do cool mountainish stuff and bREATHE NICE AIR IN THROUGH MY NOSTRILS
