A great episode of one of my favorite podcasts. Cool hearing it from a perspective outside of the deconstruction/reconstruction/exvangelical circles.
@melissam it’s my favorite book of all time
@Kaitlyn1994 I’m so glad lol highly recommend it
“When I think I see a Buddhist worshipping a statue, I yield to the Buddhist when he tells me he is not worshipping the Buddha but honoring the Buddha’s example. When I think I see a Muslim woman constrained by her headscarf, I listen when she tells me how she fought to wear it against her family’s wishes. As natural as it may be to try to translate everything into my own religious language, I miss a lot when I persist in reducing everything to my own frame of reference.”
A must read. #religion

- Fr Richard Rohr
@thewestislandsystem Wow that’s huge 🌺

@nonnatus lol I just want to live in darker hours later and not switch back ever.
@Ricci I agree for sure but I also think we can execute on multiple solutions. Tax loopholes closed and marginal tax rate hiked would be a great start.
Charting income inequality in America. Consider people up in arms about being taxed marginally on a small portion of their fortune. Trigger warning that the chart in the video because it is STAGGERING.
@Allison It is!
