meddling christians cartoon by nakedpastor david hayward

Apparently, for many, religion gives us permission to presume. And pry. And persecute. And punish.You've probably heard by now that Ellen Page came out as gay.You've also probably heard that Anne Rice supported her and responds to Christian homophobia.I've been reading about the severeĀ anti-gay bill that was passed in Uganda and how this was strongly influenced by some American evangelicals.The gospel has become a tool of discrimination in so many areas such as race, gender and … [Read more...]

hate the sin

There are just so many problems with that idea I can't even try to begin!

we are all the us in Jesus

I claim that in Jesus there are no boundaries. There are no edges. There is no center. All in all. None included. None excluded. The differences and divisions, separations and segregations are all inspired, fabricated, endorsed and enforced by the human race.We are all already one. It is a present reality. Our task is to make it manifest.(This cartoon first appeared on Believe Out Loud.) … [Read more...]
