incidentally, this issue to which I allude in my little analysis of one of Jordan Peterson's diagrams—this issue of where Daughters are supposed to come from, if there's only one Father who only wants a Son—is central to the fundamental *absurdity* of #Christian monism.

the scheme is oversimplified to the point of inanity—so fixedly insistent upon the primacy of masculinity to the point that there's *no room* for more than token representation of femininity, as one sees with reactionary expulsion of the Blessed Mary from #Christian canon.

even the #Catholic Church, the Church of the @Pontifex, would rather not that Catholics talked too loudly about the Blessed Mary. they've guiltily permitted some folk worship of Mary, in various aspects—otherwise their dour, manly faith would have had little mass appeal.

I am not an #atheist

my daughter Alyx Woodward is, however—she's also the daughter of a *god*, but has ambitions of proving—somehow—either that Loki does not exist, or can be reduced to a superfluity, a mere error term in an equation somewhere, perhaps. gods *annoy* her.

I'm not an atheist but neither am I religious. I feel no particular need to act upon my spiritual beliefs, which are at any rate quite vague. I may be a unicorn, but I'm also rather practically minded; I leave religious matters to Chara and Kris and their various friends.

I will tell you, however, that I have little respect for #atheism, the way it's currently done.

its loudest exponents are shallow, superficial, ignorant (and profoundly racıst) men like @michaelshermer and @RichardDawkins, who show no clear understanding even of science.

#KatherineBushnell vs #evangelical #purityculture 🧵
@kkdumez #ANewGospelForWomen

“…in opposition to the perceived promiscuity of contemporary society, which they attribute to the influences of modern feminism and its sexual ethic of liberation,

many evangelicals have attempted to resurrect the nineteenth-century idealization of female purity. Through an elaborate “purity culture” consisting of scripted purity pledges, father-daughter balls, purity rings, and the rhetoric of warriors and princesses,

evangelicals have worked to reinstitute an ethic of feminine restraint.” Some similarities to Bushnell, “However, whereas contemporary evangelical purity culture focuses chiefly on the purity of young women—

If you followed #FreedomConvoy, even supported it, did you really understand danger it poses to Canada? Maybe you waved away extremist elements, saying just a few "bad apples". You'd be deluding yourself. It's time to scratch below the surface, start here:
Those various flags seen throughout the protest. They weren't one-offs or bad apples, they were embedded in the protest from the start. You saw them:
#Trump flags, Confederate flags, 3% flags, &, yes, Swastika flags (if you have one Nazi in a crowd, you've got a crowd of Nazis).
Think this is an exaggeration? Maybe start to examine what's actually driving these groups. Organizers of #TruckConvoy have a history of extremist views, from #Wexit to disgusting racist bigotry and hatred. It wasn't hidden, you just ignored it.
Start with #CanadaUnity

I was brought up in the church ruled by Francis Chan, Mark Driscoll, and Matt Chandler. The real shift away from that happened in 2016 when I was diagnosed #actuallyautistic and then the election within weeks of each other.
Having my eyes opened to both my own disability as well as the violent level of blowback I got for admonishing others in the church showed me it does indeed take faith to move mountains.
My story now in Christianity is that I continue my education in interpretation of the OT. But being on the outside of hermeneutics by a matter of neurophysiology has shown me new voices. I almost hate that I bought into the Acts29, alpha-male, “complimentarianism” rhetoric.

I read this essay with tears in my eyes about how willing some are to sacrifice the lives of other people—people who are loved
I read it after hearing a personal story of how #Evangelical church leaders are bullying the elderly and vulnerable by questioning their faith if they don’t return to church in this pandemic
There’s gotta be a special place in hell for those who violate that ministerial trust by telling ppl their faith is contingent on taking health risks in a pandemic

1. What would happen to the #FascistParty (fka @GOP) if a church going #Catholic was on the ticket against a degenerate like @POTUS @realdonaldTrump? It would put the @USCCB on the spot. I think their Devil's pact with #Evangelicals might collapse .
2. We can cap incomes for preachers at the Catholic Bishop top scale. Tax the Trump loversabove that like any other business. @Franklin_Graham @JerryFalwellJr @JoelOsteen @JoyceMeyer @BishopJakes @JohnCMaxwell @RickWarren @MaxLucado @JohnPiper @BethMooreLPM @DaveRamsey
3. @SamaritansPurse @OCC_shoeboxes @BillyGraham @TheBGLibrary @MyHope @ChristianPost @GovMikeHuckabee

Only a counter-attack to Trump heresy could make it possible to tax #Evangelical money-machine & that's what's on the way if they don't get of the evil train. @StephGrisham45

@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN #Israel is a theocratic apartheid military police state.

People are segregated and one segment of people are reduced to living in dire conditions, suffer human rights abuses and abject poverty. They are beaten back by the military when trying to assert their freedom.
@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN Why we would support ANY theocracy I have no idea, but we also support #SaudiArabia, a theocratic monarchy.

It doesn't make sense, if we support theocracies, why isn't #Iran our ally? Did we have to pick a side and decide to go with Sunnis instead of Shiites?
@LindseyGrahamSC @realDonaldTrump @IlhanMN If the United States separates Church and State according to our constitution, and is devoted to promoting democracy worldwide, we should not be ignoring our values in order to create alliances. If they want to be allies, these countries can change

Those who conflate opposition to unquestioning support for Israel with anti-Semitism are like #JussieSmollett: they cheapen the experiences of actual victims of anti-Semitism
Let's be clear, anti-Semitism is real and, sadly, it's on the rise in the U.S., especially since the 2016 election. According to the Anti-Defamation League, there was a 60% increase in anti-Semitic incidents from 2016 to 2017.…
The massacre at the #TreeOfLifeSynagogue last fall was the deadliest attack on the American Jewish community in U.S. history. And it was committed by an anti-Semitic white nationalist.…
