I’ve shared a lot of my own #EmptyThePews story in various posts on my blog, Not Your Mission Field. I grew up in “respectable” but still anti-LGBTQ and anti-intellectual evangelicalism. The cognitive dissonance was... a lot.

Of course, repressed queerness, belatedly recognized, is part of my #EmptyThePews story too. As a kid I wasn’t sure why I felt different and uncomfortable in my own skin.

cstroop.com/2019/06/11/cal…
When I was in high school and initially in college, every time queerness came up I felt intense anxiety. I felt internalized pressure to insist that it’s “sinful” but felt bad about that.

Evangelicalism had taught me to doubt my doubts and not to trust my feelings

1.7 million Title X dollars for pushing abstinence and the "rhythm method." American theocracy is rising fast, and yet most major news outlets still treat right-wing evangelicals and Catholics with kid gloves--when they're not publishing outright puff pieces.

"In Orange County, among the wide boulevards and gleaming office towers where Obria maintains its headquarters, sexually transmitted diseases are an unrelenting force: From 2013 to 2017, gonorrhea cases rose by 129%, chlamydia by 65% and syphilis by 99%."

"Over the next three years, Obria could receive $5.1 million in federal family planning funds for its California clinics. But [Obria CEO] Bravo, who operates 38 clinics in six states, has grander visions: She wants Obria to become a nationwide alternative to Planned Parenthood."

1. It's the end of the month, so I'm gonna do a little monthly recap of what I've been up to this month and make a little pitch for supporting me via @Patreon if you find my work valuable and can afford to:

@Patreon 2. If I had to summarize what I've been up to this month, I'd say my work has primarily focused on pushing back against attempts to whitewash Christian nationalism and the dangerous anti-democratic views of the Christian Right. I did so in @jdforward here

@Patreon @jdforward 3. And I followed up further on what's wrong with attempts to represent white evangelicals' Christian Zionism as benign in this piece for @RDispatches:

1. It’s the last week of August, and I haven’t made a selection for this month’s #EpicChristianFails blog post yet.

Have a suggestion? Please tweet it w/ the hashtag.

For those just tuning in, I’ve been doing this series for four months, figuring we could use some comic relief.
2. While Christians do indeed say and do the darndest things, I’m afraid I’m never going to top the first month’s post—so to speak. #EpicChristianFails: The Cross and the Clitoris is... Well, the level of fail involved is beyond epic.

3. For the second month in the #EpicChristianFails series, I highlighted an embarrassing story about Ken Ham’s Ark Encounter “museum” filing a lawsuit over water damage 😏

Nothing ruins a biblical epic like some bad weather.

1. What are the ways that #EvangelicalismKills?

Conservatives love to say that ideas have consequences, but somehow they never want to examine the consequences of right-wing ideologies.

So let’s do that with this new hashtag coined by @Ashadahya.

#MondayMorning #EmptyThePews
2. Asha started the hashtag in connection with Renee Bach, an evangelical missionary in Uganda who, acting on a “calling”—rather than training and preparation—performed medical procedures only doctors are qualified to perform. And children predictably died.

I’m proud to have exposed this campaign in my recent reporting on the crackdown on LGBTQ students at @azusapacific. Please share this far and wide to keep the pressure on them and @FoothillChurch.

#ExposeChristianSchools #Exvangelical #MondayMood #FaithfullyLGBT #LGBTQ #Resist
Here’s my article for @PRAEyesRight in which I quote from Ryan Montague’s email calling for pressure on @azusapacific’s board to reverse its move toward LGBTQ accommodation. This and similar materials were passed to me by sources who requested anonymity.

feature.politicalresearch.org/the-struggle-f…
After publishing that exposé, a concerned APU faculty member reached out to let me know that things are even worse than I knew, with a purge of “liberal” and LGBTQ-affirming faculty brewing. Please let @azusapacific know what you think of this shady move.

With the opt in/out date deadline on Jan 18th 4 the @NHL #concussion lawsuit I wanted to revisit this breakdown from @SheillaDingus on the red flags of the settlement:

1/ A potential life & death situation is noted, in which the #NHL says “live or die...

advocacyforfairnessinsports.org/nhl-concussion…
we don’t care, just don’t ask us for any money.” Players are instructed to file a claim from the Additional Payment Fund—if they live long enough

2/ The NHL control of testing procedure immediately drew a red flag. It is notable that the cost of testing is NOT included....
in the total value of the settlement but is instead an uncapped fund under COMPLETE control of the NHL

It seems odd that no one to my knowledge has reported this

“In the big picture the cost of these exams is de minimus, particularly when the NHL is in control of these exams”

“The young missionary's family released a statement saying that Chau had nothing but love for the Sentinelese and they forgive those responsible for his death.”

You can’t love people you know nothing about and objectify as a mission field, and Chau is responsible for his death.
For my commentary on John Chau’s missionary efforts and death, see:

See also my takedown of “respectable” evangelical defensiveness around the Chau affair. Toxic white Christian supremacist evangelical ideology fostered the bad behavior that got him killed #NotYourMissionField #Exvangelical #EmptyThePews #MondayMotivation

Clinton Foundation donations drop 42% - which shows that they illegally played the power game. They monetized their political influence through the Foundation.

Seeing all the homeless in tents all over downtown Los Angeles is horrible. Then I missed a turn and came across this! This is shocking! How can the city allow this to happen? It’s like a third world country. It goes in for blocks like this! #VoteDemsOut2018 #California
@KamalaHarris this is what you left California with? #KamalaHarris #JerryBrown #VoteCaliforniaDemsOut
Unbelievable that this is happening in California. #LiberalismIsAMentalDisorder
