A new church in Spokane and being “dedicated“ in October on the curb outside of our local Planned Parenthood for the purpose of “assaulting the gates of hell“ with worship and street preaching. One of the primary organizers is Jake Eakin, convicted murderer with a long history of violence.

A glance at his Facebook page shows that he perpetuates the myth of the ”abortion holocaust” which was created out of outrage and a disregard for facts.

I’m not a tiny bit surprised by what this includes. I am quite a bit surprised by how blatant it has become.

This is the one of the first solid, self-driven nails in the coffin of Evangelical Christianity‘s irrelevance. The #SocialJusticeStatement is a hard line in the sand for any progressive, justice-oriented Christian who has attempted to work with evangelicals in the past. They will no longer accept your work. They will no longer accept your driving beliefs.

This is a story about my finances that does NOT end with me putting my PayPal information out for you.

Just an interesting look into millennial financial nihilism and how the financial difficulties millennials face are making us a pretty fucking resillient generation. My daughter’s preschool tuition last year was $ X,xxx a month. We were relying on a number of different options to pay it, none of which lasted a whole year, so she ended the year with a four-digit ($ Y,yyy) account balance. Obviously, we can’t enroll her with an outstanding debt

Hey #Exvangelical Twitter and those who follow us - little reminder that most people who leave the church also get shunted to the outsides of their own families by a religious belief that real community only exists in Christ, and that’s excruciating. Be kind to each other today. Even for those whose families have not deliberately shunned or ostracized them (which happens), there is a painful and obvious disconnect. At family gatherings you sit at a table full of people you desperately want to connect with and can’t think of a thing to say.

Let’s play Who said it: the God you were raised with, or your human abuser? “Your life will be much better if you allow me full control over it.“

Buckle up, guys, gals, and non-binary pals, because we are about to talk Pensacola Christian College.

This is a political #Exvangelical #emptythepews thread with a heavy dose of #youdontknowevangelicals When I was choosing my Evangelical college, PCC was one of my few approved options. It has a pretty decent nursing program, and I was toying with going to school for that, but I knew, even then, that it possibly was the most conservative of all the schools I had access to.

I think next week‘s @realreconstruct is going to have to be about fear. #Exvangelical folks are some of the most fearful today because we know what the religious right is capable of. We’ve heard them talk about it for decades. We know the kind of America they want. Here’s the answer to the question: “What happens when the Christian right succeeds in overturning Roe v Wade?”

They have so much more they want to do.

Since we’re on the topic, just so everybody knows where I stand and you’re welcome to unfollow if you need to -

White is not a race.

White is a common identity built around perceived superiority, oppression, and atrocity. White folks voluntarily gave up their various cultural identities for this common identity based around skin color because power was more important to them than culture. This still happens.

Non-Christians: Why do Christian wives of abusive husbands stick around in their marriages?

Every single #Exvangelical: THEY WERE TAUGHT THIS WAS THE BEST THEY COULD GET. As I revisit some of these interviews and surveys from my spiritual abuse/domestic violence study, I notice how many of these (mostly) women said they just didn’t know how messed up their marriages were because their husband’s behavior was what they had been taught to expect.

A Beka, BJU Pub, and ACE do not properly teach science or history. David Barton is not a respectable historian. Ken Hamm is not a respectable scientist. If your approach to science or history education is to twist reality to match the narrative you want, consider that a red flag. I am still grappling with the frustration and embarrassment of realizing in adulthood I was not given a proper scientific or historical foundation in my education. There are things I was taught were facts that absolutely are not and things that were skipped over entirely.
