anthropoidia reblogged your post: jamiesugah: Now that Halloween is over, most of…
I was not aware that they actively discriminate. I thought they were more in the “we disapprove, but we don’t turn away the hungry” camp. Argh.
Did you check the link? I think there are more cases like that — where gay couples were actively denied help unless they split up, trans* people were housed with the wrong gender, etc.
i have found the tumblr of my people.
Once an Episcopalian, always a genuflecting incense-burning liturgy-loving liberal.
(Don’t tell the Lutherans.)
I don’t even know what that is. Guess who is not the best at being an Episcopalian.
Also I think I am secretly mostly a low church person. Not into the incense.
Things that are OK:
- Not knowing what Cursillo is
- Being a low church person
- Not liking incense
Things that are not OK:
- Anyone telling you that the above makes you a lesser-than Episcopalian :)
(Cursillo is a three-day leadership formation event for lay people, with priests as spiritual guides to the event.)
"How do you remind yourself that you are a beloved child of God?"
anthropoidia asked you:
Hi! I just started following you. I’m a trans guy, recently refinding my faith. Can I ask you a preacherish question? How do you deal with the mountains of LGBT directed hatred from Christians? How do you remind yourself that you are a beloved child of God? How do you keep from internalizing that hatred? I ask because I find it very difficult to do myself, and I thought maybe reaching out to another queer person of faith might help. All the best, I really enjoy your blog, and many blessings!
Well hi! Welcome, and stuff. It’s taken me a while to recognize my own belovedness, but here are the things that hold me up on a daily basis.
