1. I so appreciate this thread by @ToriGlass (#FF). I believe there is value in this #Exvangelical community we’re building as we work and grow through tensions. I hope we can give each other some grace and take a step back to consider the sources of conflicting trauma responses.
2. Of course, we need to actively work not to elevate white feelings over POC as we do so. We white exvies need to be less fragile about being called out. And we need to recognize how the history of colonialism and white supremacism has given rise to different theologies.
3. Since #Exvangelical really began to become a thing, I and others, like @ToriGlass and @cindy_w_brandt and @brchastain, have advocated for the building of bridges between exvies who leave toxic religion for no religion, and exvies who leave for healthy or better religion.

1. I appreciate being discussed in this @lgbtqnation piece on people leaving evangelicalism. I wish the author had reached out to me for an interview, though, because the piece represents me and the #Exvangelical community with misleading language.

2. John Gallagher's piece strongly implies that all exvies remain believers. "As it turns out, some believers–especially young believers–want to go to church to worship God, not Trump."

This is true of some of us. Some of us are done with church and belief in god altogether.
3. It's actually sort of a running "joke" among exvies that while we don't know which group is more dominant, atheists/agnostics or those in the #StillChristian crowd, whichever group you're in, you think the other one is predominant. A weird quirk of confirmation bias, it seems.
