The contrast between the cold ritualized church and the pagan

wildness of the animal speaks about the state of my soul.

No Sacraments for You, Faggots

The Sojourner

Did anyone notice?

The world wide Anglican Church this week 
has upheld the traditional version of marriage 
as a sacrament between men and women.

And they have taken some toys away from 
the American Episcopalian Church for actually daring to assume that God loves all of Her Children.

will take 1000 lifetimes to work through.

It's a process.

But her words got me thinking about baptism 

and what it could possibly mean to an 


Is it enough to know that such ideas as Martha's 

are floating about beneath the rigid veneer of 

the church?  I don't know if it makes me feel 

any more warm and fuzzy about Christianity but 

am grateful that at least in 2016 she won't be 

burned at the stake ...

because such ideas give me hope.
