You can beleive whatever you want to believe about the morality of various sexual orientations and gender identies. On social.theliturgists.com, honest questions are always welcome (assuming they are behind a content warning).

Telling people you don’t approve of their orientation or gender identity is not allowed. Full stop. This is an affirming environment.

This include telling people “the Bible” or “God” doesn’t approve of them.

Violations earn a one-way ticket to Bans-ville.

@JennyBee I thought about you this morning as I debate w myself about church attendance tomorrow.

I hope you are well, or at least hanging in there.

It seems like we have a lot of software/web developers on here so figured I'd ask.

Anybody looking for part-time contract web dev work? if so, DM me!

A recent analysis shows that visitation to U.S. Forest Service and Bureau of Land Management land has risen by about 15 percent over the last decade, while budgets for programs that support recreation in those agencies has fallen by a similar amount.

The purpose of putting pronouns in your bio is that most trans people must do this to avoid misgendering, and if only trans people have their pronouns on display it makes it really easy to single us out whether we want to be open about it or not, which leads to harassment.

If you're cis, put your pronouns in your bio. It helps trans people stay safe online.

Not "cis man/woman" or "male/female" or "mr/ms/mrs". The pronouns. Type out the pronouns. Whatever else you add is fine, but please just take 3 seconds, type the pronouns, hit save.

If you don't, trans people have no way of knowing whether you're a safe cis person or not, and I will generally assume you are not since you haven't put forth the minimal possible effort to help protect us.

Today I was surprised for the infinity-eth time that not everybody is interested in what fascinates me.

But my interests are so interesting, how can this be? Wait this feels familiar. 😆 Someday I'll learn. Different kind of ego shit I guess...

Liturgist fam-I need help finding a children’s book or 5 that feature interracial parents/families! Particularly if the mother is white and the father is black. The book(s) doesn’t have to be about interracial families necessarily, just looking for illustrations that depict such a family. Thanks in advance!

The latest Ask Science Mike podcast is really good everyone. You should go have a listen.

The part where @mike talks about connecting on an emotional level instead of trying to out science someone is spot on. They have already made up their mind and will likely only become more ingrained in their thinking the more they are argued with. This is called the Backfire effect ( although it may have a more scientific name)

@chronicallymoe Jesus Christ Himself: want to know the odds of getting into heaven if you're rich? Imagine this literally impossible thing.

Americans: Ah but secretly this refers to this totally doable thing

Jesus: Literally sell all your stuff and give the proceeds directly to the poor.

Americans: actually that just means you should donate to your local televangelist.

Jesus: here's a story about a rich man who is in hell for being a bastard.

Americans: No U.
