I was right.
A couple weeks in the founder told me she was thinking of firing the ED and was hoping I could take her position.
I was 5 months out from graduation.
When the ED quit, they asked me to stand in, or at least use my name so they wouldn't shut down. (Their license required someone with a degree & I was the only option.)
It was the worst week of my life. The first 2 things contributed majorly to my decent down the slippery slope into a faith crisis >>progressive Xianity >> nonbeliever
Nope. Your good heart is not enough. You need so much more than a good heart to do this work. You are the cause of the roadblocks.
Both the girls were of color. And sexually trafficked.
The white savior evangelical complex saving their souls.
I'm not saying these people don't have good hearts and good intentions. But we know those are not enough. Especially when you could cause very real harm.
But when I became political, when I started talking about racism and problems that were more tangible to "home", people didn't want to hear me anymore.
This is so dangerous.
But I do think there is truth in a lot of this & probably so much more I didn't even touch. I see it now that my eyes have opened post evangelicalism.
Not to mention white evangelicals support wives submitting to their husbands, duty to provide sex, purity culture etc.
They're helping sex trauma victims while supporting a rapist for president and literally teaching rape culture.
