Hate on my recent Bi+ erasure post
I’ve received some hate for posting a graphic from the Bisexual Resource Center about Bi+ erasure. Thank you, Liturgists friends, for sending messages of support & kindness. I am sorry if my post caused anyone discomfort, or if being subjected to the hateful responses upset anyone. I truly wasn’t expecting those reactions.
With it being #BiHealthMonth, I’m going to look after my own mental health & take a Mastodon break. See you in a few.
The United Methodist Church and LGBTQ Equality.
Given today’s vote from the UMC Special Conference, I can no longer call myself a Methodist. In solidarity with LGBTQ people, I am seeking a new churh home.
I know there are faithful Methodists fighting to reform the church. I love & appriciate those people. But, that is not my calling. As laity, I will support and be a part of a denomination that recognizes the full dignity and humanity of all sexual orientations and gender identites.
Here is the JJ Warren speech from the UMCGC floor in case anyone is interested: very inspiring and hopeful. https://youtu.be/Jc5ZR7CAr1o
It’s like they knew an #enneagram4 would be drinking this tea
“Tooting” has taken on a whole new meaning for me after the most recent episode of #TAATR 😂
Trying to open my bible again
Haven’t opened my bible in God knows how long. I’m longing reconnect with the God of love and the God who seeks justice for the oppressed. The God I know and not the hateful one who’s been handed to me. Where do you recommend I start? Any particular books or verses that stand out to y’all?
I’ve been having pretty bad insomnia lately and the only thing that’s worked for me are sleeping pills. I’ve tried breathing exercises, meditation, melatonin, and antihistamines as well. I know sleeping pills are not a good solution, so I splurged on some CBD oil today and I’m hoping it’ll provide some relief. Has anyone else experimented with CBD oil? If so, what has your experience been? Has it helped with your sleep?
Rant about Christianity
I am so done with white, cishet, conservative Christianity. I’m done with those who subscribe to this brand of Christianity, and vehemently deny the instrinsic oppression it is rooted in & thrives on. I don’t think it’s possible to truly love your neighbor while simultaneously partaking in a brand of religion that actively excludes and oppresses your neighbor. I want to be loving and kind toward people I disagree with, but today I’m just straight up angry.
