Misogyny In The Church Must Go

As Sarah Bessey pointed out when she started the #ThingsOnlyChristianWomenHear on Twitter, sexism isn’t limited to Christianity or religion. It’s a problem on a global scale, and it needs to be exposed regularly. In fact, I’m making it my duty to make it as awkward as possible for anyone I hear saying anything sexist and you should, too.

Our Revolution

This is our revolution. Millennials and other like-minded people are keen. We are capable. Together in solidarity, we will stand up to fear and not back down. We will eliminate homophobia, sexism, and the classifications of race by fully accepting each person for who they are without any expectations of changing them.

We will educate our children to do the same and to treat each person with kindness, respect, and impartiality. The generation following after us will not be afraid to fall in love with a person whose skin color differs from their own. They will openly celebrate one another falling in love regardless of gender or religious upbringing (if any).

A Sea of Bodies

I’m struggling today. There is a sea of bodies surrounding all of us, but it’s largely been ignored. I don’t even know how far back I have to go to start counting the bodies. Is it Columbine? The eradication of Native Americans? Neanderthals? No matter where these tragedies occur, the sea of bodies are still collecting, forming … Continue reading “A Sea of Bodies”

Fear Is A Bitch.

A friend posed a question for a group of us to think on the other day. Existential angst. A Western luxury? My answer to the group was that anxiety isn’t a ‘luxury’ by any means, but it’s certainly prevalent throughout the Western culture. That got me thinking, “Why is anxiety so common?” It doesn’t take a … Continue reading “Fear Is A Bitch.”

God In A Box

Preface: I’m not the easiest person to get to know. There’s a lot that goes into that–I’m introverted, I’m analytical, and I’m a critical thinker. To get to know me typically means that I’m getting to know you first. I’m establishing a base in which to work from. That doesn’t mean that I’m judging you exactly; … Continue reading “God In A Box”

Fear, Love, and The Forgotten Jesus

Love. It’s not something that we can easily encapsulate in a one-sentence description. In fact, there are complete libraries on the subject. It’s an ambiguous subject, and one could spend their entire life trying to understand it — what a fantastic idea! In a world wrought with hatred, indifference, intolerance, and so many horrible things, there stands … Continue reading “Fear, Love, and The Forgotten Jesus”
