After deconstruction, I struggled to find the right "label" for myself for years. Who was I? I finally settled on two concepts: 1) No label encompasses me and I will no longer limit myself with labels of any kind. 2) When people ask me if I am Christian / Buddhist / Republican / Democrat etc, my response is "That is up to you to decide - and whatever you decide is fine by me." So label away if you are most comfortable with a short-hand version of life. I prefer the un-cut version.
@brothermatthew this is something I've been thinking a fair bit recently. I've gone back and forth on labels many times. Previously if someone would have asked me about my christian status I would have asked for their definition of a christian. But I like your approach even better. Takes the pressure off of the asked and puts it on the questioner. thanks for your insight.
