Pinned toot

Grew up in a loving fundie home. Never really experienced God, so my "faith" was entirely based on apologetics/logic/facts, which I deconstructed last May very rapidly once I started analyzing the evidence (or lack thereof) for most of my beliefs; went from proselytizing Christian to atheist in the span of a few weeks.

I'm happier than ever, deconstructing with my amazing supportive husband and hoping my evangelical family someday can accept it.

Hey @mike and @vishnu :)

I'm super excited to see you both at Tabs & Wafers in Chicago this Saturday! I wanted to let you both know (if you're not already aware) that the general admission tickets AND the Q&A tickets say doors open at 7 and event starts at 8. I know elsewhere it says Q&A doors at 6, but maybe it's worth sending a correction e-mail to ticket purchasers?

I'm thinking lots of the Q&A people could just look at the ticket time and miss the Q&A. :s

When you were raised in a conservative bubble and had NO IDEA what the "Tabs and Wafers" name means, and then you listen to TAATR and find out tabs is apparently a drug reference. 😂

Now I'm even more excited about the tickets I bought haha 😂 Looking forward to it, @mike and @vishnu !! 😁

Just a reminder to all the Michigan Liturgists that we do a meetup the 4th Saturday of each month! Sometimes we even do additional meetups, like the one we'll be doing in Lansing on Monday. Please mark your calendars and send me a DM if you're planning on joining & I'll share the specifics! :D

pride month, racism & transphobia among some LGB folks 

Hey friends, just a quick reminder with pride month coming up that it's literally life/death to make sure that our celebrations aren't just about cis, white, able-bodied gay & lesbian folks. Make sure you're also lifting up the voices of disabled LGBTQ folks, people of color, trans folks (especially trans women of color), immigrants, working class folks, etc. It's a lot harder to be queer if you're not a rich cis white person. :heart_pride:

Internet: "For this type of plant, be sure to water it very regularly! But don't overwater. It should get x number of inches each week. But if it's in a container, water it more often. But be careful to not overwater!"

Me: "I'm just going to hold down the sprayer button for however long I feel like today and hope for the best."

Hey @mike and @vishnu !

I was noticing that for Tabs & Wafers in Chicago on July 27, both the general admission tickets and the Q&A tickets are showing the same start time (event at 8pm, doors open at 7pm). Not sure if I'm missing something?

We have a group of us coming from Michigan, some with Q&A tickets and some not, so we would love to figure out official start times to plan out our trip. :) Thanks!!

If any Michiganders are interested in joining a group of Liturgists to the July 27 Tabs & Wafers in Chicago, let me know ASAP because we're working on figuring out carpooling and booking an AirBnb together!

Trolling a toxic conference 

So there's this toxic conference in the UK called "Dangers of Social Justice in Evangelicalism" which is probably going to be every bit as bad as it sounds.

Thankfully, they left us a HUGE loophole...it's free to register.😈

If you want to make empty seats, go to the link and sign up for as many tickets as you have time for (bonus points if you use a name/email address like ThisIs MorallyBankruptChristianity).

Let the trolling commence. 👾

Another amazing day spent with the Michigan Liturgists, MY PEOPLE. You all bring such joy to my life and are such spectacular souls. Thank you for a beautifully enriching and rejuvenating day!

@GarrisonSchrauger @lyric @rayjay @y2ksnowglobe @EmilyZaiding

(P.S. Kelsey and Stacy, you're not forgotten! I just don't know if you're on Mastodon haha)

Just bought my ticket for the Chicago Tabs & Wafers and I'm SO excited!


Michigan Liturgists! Just a reminder that our next meetup is this Saturday, May 25! It'll be a potluck lunch at noon in East Lansing. If anyone in the GR-ish area is interested in carpooling, please send me a direct message for details. Looking forward to seeing you wonderful souls again! :)

I think God is big enough to handle anyone’s heresies, even if any side thinks they’re right.

@Bradw011 @EmilyZaiding Just realized I accidentally deleted a space in the above post and therefore you two didn't get properly tagged at first. Sorry!!

Meeting up with fellow Liturgists fans brings me life. I always feel so rejuvenated after hanging out with Liturgists; even when most of us haven't met before, there's an instant feeling of connection and the space created has room for both vulnerability and also a lot of laughter. It's days like these that I live for. <3

"When life gives you lemonade, there's no need to fuck around with lemons." this quote is my favorite so far.

Michigan Liturgists! We meet up the 4th Saturday of every month, so mark your calendars. :)

I've had a rough month and thought I shared this way sooner, so please forgive me! Our next meetup is tomorrow, April 27 in Belmont at 2:30pm. Please message me for address! :)

So happy we can do this every 4th Saturday! :D

@mike @vishnu I was really enjoying the most recent TAATR until the Subway stories... I'm the person who goes to Subway and gets EXTRA mayo. Like, a lot.

Thanks for ruining that for me. 🤢😂

But I'm going to keep enjoying Applebee's no matter what Mike says because they offer half off apps and that's the only date night my husband and I can afford. 😂
