Thousands of children across the UK are on strike today, 15 February, protesting lack of political/government response to global #climateChange.

Their rationale (in part)
- UN climate report 2018 gives us 12 years to cut emissions by 50% to avoid catastrophe
- Just 100 companies are responsible for over 70% of the CO2 emissions on the planet

<< more than half of global industrial emissions since 1988 – the year the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change was established – can be traced to just 25 corporate and state-owned entities >>

People ask what #patriarchy is. Think “Jim Crow” and apply it to women—all women. It’s a web of systems, structures, practices and believes that enforce gender hierarchy and silence women. 1/
#This is what #patriarchy looks like in the US right now. 2/
And #patriarchy looks like #this. Yesterday, .@OrrinHatch refused to listen to women and their concerns. 3/

When you wrote this, hopefully you had read it our aloud, the inconsistencies abound. A few points
1) There is no law requiring mandatory usage of Social Security Number (SSN) in the United States. STOP MISLEADING
SSN =PAN in India. It does not have any biometric data.

The Social Security Administration regularly suggests that if asked to provide his or her Social Security number, a citizen should ask which law requires its use
If the #Aadhaar database stores nothing secret, imp and even if it leaks like sieve, why @UIDAI has taken and will continue to take measures to ensure that its database remains secure? Why waste taxpayers money?

From 2015–before #metoo #churchtoo #silenceisnotspiritual. #THIS is most white-male-centered narcissistic drivel I have ever read in my entire life. @JohnPiper claims scripture is his authority then offers no exegesis of any text. “Principles” instead. 1/ desiringgod.org/interviews/sho…
Teaching “principles” rather than teaching excellent exegesis is a narcissistic tactic of control. ANYONE can claim the scripture says ANYTHING when they leave the scripture out. Brings followers into close relationship w/ leader, but leaves them not knowing Jesus (The Word). 2/
What .@JohnPiper did here was unbelievably manipulative. Demonstrated #ZERO submissiveness to scripture. Has nerve to guilt/shame women into “submission to scripture” then offers #NONE. Only offers his own “principles,” which scripture would drop-kick. 3/
