I was angry last night!
The big, green, Incredible Hulk type of anger.
This morning it’s the quietly sickened and disgusted type.
Because friends of mine are hurting badly – torn to pieces by religion.
Because they are just one more statistic – victims of an abusive institution erroneously called ‘church’.
Because religious leaders seem to think it’s actually ok to throw their brothers and sisters under the bus.
Because they use their position to denounce family members, in an attempt to control the narrative.
Because they can’t seem to understand that the words of judgement they preach from their pulpits apply equally to themselves.
Because they ignore the words of Jesus and lord it over their brothers and sisters.
Because members of ‘the body’ seem to think this is normal and so they don’t stand up and shout, “NO! STOP! ENOUGH!”
