Arguments for "woke" Christianity. A thread.

I've been debating what the Christian right calls "woke" for years. It's always the same points. So instead of addressing them over and over again. I thought I'd create a thread to book mark. Warning-this will be long. 1/
My background. I'm a preacher's kid, been a Christian my entire life (I'm 56). I've also voted Republican, Democratic, Independent. I'm not particularly partisan and I think the marriage of Christianity and politics is incredibly dangerous as proved throughout history. 2/
The denomination I grew up was fairly liberal. However as an adult, I attended evangelical mega churches that became increasingly fundamentalist over the years. I was like a frog in boiling water-not recognizing the changes in doctrine until the Trump era. 3/

There are many of @HC_Richardson “Letters from An American” that should be highlighted. This one is of vital importance because it summarizes where we find ourselves today as we #resist those who mean to strip our rights, protections & freedom.…

Bro can we not do this today
For the record, I still think we should be able to give a reason when we block people so they see it if they ever come to your profile lmao.

Reason: "Neener neener."

It's not like you can't just view someone's account in incognito or an alt but whatever. Get outta here.
For whatever reason I don't mind Brian as much as Ed. Brian at least does the concernposting thing where he tries to pretend he's reasonable.

Ed tweeted this once, which isn't even funny #resist posting it's just grody.

there's gotta be a circle of hell specifically for people that put #resist/#resistance in their bio but also post the bugs bunny florida gif. what the fuck is your resistance worth if you're willing to toss the marginalized people here aside WITH the fascists ruining our lives.
you people are insufferable posers. it's exhausting and terrifying living here watching the ghouls in seats of power do everything they can to legislate queer people out of existence, it feels like they're constantly turning a dial until they can get away with "build camps".
it's all #resist until it gets too real, then you're done larping as whatever fuckin stupid ass star wars character you imagine yourself to be standing up to fascism and you write off the marginalized people in the south. bro fuck you if you post this gif I hate your guts.

Let's talk about #CognitiveBiases and #denial of reality as a cause of #CivilizationCollapse.

Civilization collapse is a phenomenon that occurs when a complex human society disintegrates and loses its cohesion, identity, and functionality. There are many possible causes of

civilization collapse, such as natural disasters, war, famine, disease, trade disruption, resource depletion, and social inequality. However, one factor that is often overlooked or underestimated is the role of human psychology in shaping our perception and response to these
challenges. In this thread, I will argue that cognitive biases and denial of reality are significant contributors to civilization #collapse because they #impair our ability to recognize, understand, and solve the problems that threaten our existence.

#ProudBlue #ResistanceUnited #DemVoice1
Actually, I recently binged on the series, Man In The High Castle which should serve as a warning for all of us here- today. Jews, blacks, gays are mostly eliminated, American history has been changed, books banned, & resisters are terrorists.
#ProudBlue #ResistanceUnited
When the black resistance push the Japanese from the west coast, the Reich creates an opportunity to pass themselves off as liberators of the west coast who are left there from black terrorists. But the audience knows better. We should all see the dangerous parallels. #Resist

Ffs, the Dem fear-mongering & hand-wringing has already started & McCarthy isn't even Speaker yet.

A 🧵

These "deals" are all for naught, considering they'll require a majority of Senators to agree with them on any bill of any kind that they pass in the House.
Yes, that includes the debt ceiling, which they don't seem to grasp is money ALREADY SPENT. There is ZERO new spending in the debt ceiling.

Holding it hostage harms the American people bcos it will destroy US credit rating. It would be disastrous. Rank & file Rs know this.
Add to that the obvious & utter dearth of support from Senate Rs for this nonsense.

Notice the deafening silence from that Chamber? Instead, McConnell's preaching bipartisanship.

Their bills will die in the Senate & their agenda will follow apace.

Psychologist Dr. Lee-Anne Gray founded a school whose mission is “Empathic Education for a Compassionate Nation.” She teaches the art of empathic listening and it is a powerful technique to dismantle normalized bullying in our society @bulliedbrain #resist…
Identifying with the aggressor is comparable to Stockholm syndrome, in which a hostage will bond with their captor. This bonding occurs because the brain is aware that the captor could harm or kill the #hostage. The bond intensifies as a survival strategy…
@bulliedbrain's clients want to know why as employees, they suffered repeat abuses. To overcome this obstacle to recovery, we must first recognize how bullying works.

Thus far, one of the most significant beneficiaries of Matt Taibbi's "Twitter Files" thread has been Matt Taibbi's Twitter account (@mtaibbi), which gained hundreds of followers in the hours and days immediately after the thread.

Based on the hashtags used in their profiles (#MAGA, #KAG, #Trump2024, etc), Taibbi's post-"Twitter Files" followers are almost all right-wing accounts.

Are you familiar with these images? They are real, they are horrifying, they depict action taking place right now in 2022 from a world super power. By action, I mean ethnic cleansing and genocide. Those are Uyghur Muslims being forcibly shaved and put onto cattle cars by the CCP.
Yes, imagery which echoes the holocaust; a govt program built of similar evil. These innocent people are being taken from their homes and families and brought to work camps where they will be enslaved, beaten and "reeducated". If successful, they'll be returned. If not, murdered.
This isn't denied by anyone. We've had this info and intelligence for a long time. Here is one of the "work camps". 👇 Some eerie imagery, isn't it? It sure as hell should be! And heck, the Chinese govt doesn't really even deny it. They basically own up to cultural genocide.

So much is wrong with our world.
Everyone knows it.
But it’s almost impossible to make a difference.
Everyone knows that.

And yet… …we can make a difference.

It’s a numbers games.
We just need to add ourselves to the numbers.

Here’s how. Image
