  • One of the cruelest things ever said to me:

    Two years ago today, a really good friend of mine died via suicide. Fundamentalists told me "well, we live in a fallen world." No empathy, no compassion, no "I may not understand, but I'm here and I'm listening." Just "we live in a fallen world."

    I miss her. If you wanted to know what "love justice, love mercy, and walk humbly" looked like, she was the image. For this woman's life, she chose to party loudly with those on the margins instead of dining quietly with kings and queens. And she's not here. At the same time, I get the feeling she lives in me and I'm one of those tasked with carrying her legacy.

        Locally to me, the church banned a faithful lesbian from taking Communion. The church is the biggest bunch of Circle Queens on the planet. Anyone outside the Circle must be beaten, broken, and reset... or worse, pitied

          Excommunicating Biden will divide the church politically. Sounds like a very catholic plan to me.

          • Also... as someone who is automatically on the receiving end of that banhammer in some denominations because of L and T in LGBT... all Biden is missing is what amounts to flavorless 4-day old bread and watered down Two Buck Chuck that's supposedly the Body and Blood of Christ.

            If it's that important to him, he can probably go Episcopalian (Catholic Lite) and still get the same thing.

            • Think of it this way:

              Peter and Judas were both at the Last Supper. One denied Jesus three times and one betrayed Jesus for 30 pieces of silver.

              It makes no sense that anyone would be denied eucharist.

                        Exactly. It's classic "Midwest nice".

                          "Bless your heart" in the South.

                          I always thought "I'll pray for you" was a direct threat. That's how NY Catholics mean it.

                            Glad you understand that.

                            I'll pray for you.

                              And they backtrack. Not sure if a firmer call from Francis, a lighter offertory haul last weekend, an offer to start collecting taxes, or what.

                              • Undoing the work of Purity Culture, especially being raised on that awfulness, is so not fun. Growing up in the church, the attitude was "you can be a greedy SOB who's hell bent on destroying the environment, but don't you dare use swear words, have sex, drink, smoke, use weed, do harder drugs, etc." You didn't have ownership of your body and you weren't allowed to fail; doing so got you branded a sinner and immediately rejected by all involved.
