1. Okay, I'm finally sitting down to do my own #2018InReview thread. A lot has happened in my life this year. I've made concrete progress as a writer, speaker, activist, and #Exvangelical advocate.. I'm in a transitional space but feeling somewhat more hopeful about the future.
2. I think I'll go essentially chronologically. Back in January, I was teaching what would become my last semester at the University of South Florida in Tampa. I had hoped that maybe another temporary but full-time with benefits position there would come along, but it did not.
3. I was left with the choice of eking out a living as an adjunct instructor with no benefits, or moving back in with my parents in Indiana for a while to try and see if I could keep the momentum up with the popular engagement through writing, podcasts, radio, etc. I'd been doing

I’m sorry I’m confused. In the original Constitution, it was clear. Separation of church and state. The Religious Right are one of the most hateful groups in America that cherry pick to align with their far right political views. They then use these cherry picks to attack what
what they believe is right. Especially in regards to sexual sin, to which there is a lot of sexual sin for straight and gay. Yet sexual sin in regards to straight people is overlooked, swept under the bed. They then think it is their place to judge. Yet if these people were
actually really religious, not the ones active in church but inactive in their gospels, they would know that it is not their place to judge, not even in the slightest. That in itself is a sin. If Christianity if one does commit sin, they are judged only by their God it is not the

Let's start here: Dan Rather does a good job summarizing the Sinclair propaganda facet of Trump's authoritarian regime.
Rump's authoritarian behavior includes subverting democracy, failure to be transparent, failure to be accountable, nepotism, cronyism, and many dimensions of financial corruption.
Trump's authoritarianism includes thwarting the will of congress, obstructing the protection of the environment, and putting property & people & planet at unprecedented risk.

COMEY MEMOS: (THREAD) Working my way through the 15 pages of #ComeyMemos. Here are the most important and/or shocking revelations: 1/
During #Comey's 1/6/17 at Trump Tower, @Comey told Trump that the Russians allegedly had tapes involving Trump & prostitutes at a Moscow hotel in 2013. Could these be the infamous #PeeTapes? #ComeyMemos 2/

In the America 1930s, a new kind of Christianity was emerging. It was aimed at the wealthy, and was supported by massive companies. The aim was to change Christian meaning.
But it didn't really start to pick up until 'The New Deal ' which was to help to poor.
This new Christianity, you didn't need to read the Bible, but you had attend church.
Now this was only aimed at the rich and middle classes.
The preacher would clearly state, that you having money was a gift from God, and the poor were being punished by God.
Yes, massive chunks from the Bible was ignored, and in fact their Bibles had eradicated Jesus helping the poor.
Being rich and Christian meant you were truly blessed by God. But in reality, it really did create #FakeChristians

1. Many ex-Evangelicals leave when our understanding of Jesus comes to clash w/ right-wing culture wars and our criticism is deflected. BUT
2. It simply isn’t true that “anyone who has actually read the Gospels” will opt for social justice Christianity or bust. Not how this works
