I’m sorry my homosexual lifestyle triggers your heterosexual privilege

So if you’ve been hanging around my blog or Facebook page for more than a minute, you’ve likely seen one of my homosexual lifestyle posts. Sometimes they show up as a homosexual agenda post when I am planning to do all the things. You know the ones I am talking about – like this one, [Read More…]

 I admit it, this homosexual IS demanding special rights

Because as it turns out, civil rights are in fact special rights because they are rationed and rare. First, some of the rights we seek are indeed special because there is nothing ordinary about the right to personal dignity and safety. There is nothing ordinary about exchanging vows with the love of your life. More than [Read More…]

Freaking out and making plans – welcome 2017

Happy New Year my friends, family, neighbors and dearest ne’er-do-wells! Take a deep breath…what’s that smell? Why, that’s the embers of 2016 dying and the crisp clean smell of a brand-spanking new year. And boy is 2017 going to be a doozie or what? I am glad to see last year begin to fade away, but I would [Read More…]

I am done mollycoddling the willfully ignorant

For as long as I’ve been writing this blog, I have been asked by readers, both supporters and detractors “why you gotta be so mean sometimes?” I hear regular challenges to my voice, from both sides of the aisle, that read a little something like “why can’t we Christians all just get along, you know, because Jesus??” Or [Read More…]

Trump alone cannot overturn marriage equality, but that is not the point

Okay y’all, please listen to me. Yes, it is true that in order to overturn marriage equality, Scalia’s seat needs to be filled with a conservative judge (which it will be) and another seat would likely need to be filled similarly and the SCOTUS would need to agree to hear a case. That is not [Read More…]

More Beautiful Than the Comments Section

A phenomenal post from a friend floated across my field of vision on Facebook and I just had to share it with y’all here. Karen is a minister and friend from back in the day at Kirkwood UCC in Atlanta. She happens to be a lesbian and damn fine theologian now living the life of a farmer with her partner, children, bunnies, goats [Read More…]

Sure, you can be Orlando too

Sunday, June 12, 2016 dawned for us like most other seemingly boring days in our life – waking to smiling eyes and a gentle kiss, sipping a cup of coffee while reading an early morning devotional, taking a long walk with the pups and getting ready for a ridiculously hot day of our homosexual lifestyle – [Read More…]

Peanut Butter Cups and the First Amendment

Hey! You got your religion in my government! Hey! You got your government in my religion! Peanut butter and chocolate may be two great tastes that taste great together, but government and religion are not. That is why in 1791 the First Amendment was added to the Constitution of the United States of America. Congress [Read More…]

An Open letter to the United Methodist Church: Repent of your sin

Dear United Methodist Church, I am writing to you today as a sister in ministry, a southern-born graduate of Candler School of Theology, a wounded healer, a daughter, sister, mama, friend, partner…and lesbian Christian. It is because I have witnessed over and over again the suffering of dearly beloved friends who identify as United Methodists [Read More…]

The Rainbow Flag on Main Street: Guest blogger Jonathan Chapman

Friends, it is my honor to share this post from friend and seminary colleague, Rev. Jonathan Chapman.       Two days ago, I dragged the stepladder through our front door and set it up at the base of one of the wooden columns that line the front our our 1850s home. The house that [Read More…]
