Sunday Skooled: Gender Bendy Lambs of God Welcome in the UCC

Posted June 19, 2011 by Carmen

It’s often still surprising to learn of a church that is open to and affirming of the gay and lesbian community, and even more one that has any significantly developed theological stance regarding trans folk.

Sunday Skooled: I’m Not Homophobic, But The Bible Says It’s Wrong

I find this video to be walking the line of Where the Wild Things Are (that awesome book by Maurice Sendak) and falling down the rabbit hole à la Alice in Wonderland.

North Carolinians to Vote on Marriage Equality, Don’t Have More Pressing Political Issues

Posted September 13, 2011 by Nikki

So as I opened the news today and read this I realized that although most of us like to move forward in life and evolve for the betterment of humankind, a bunch of us are just plain f*cking backwards. I wish I weren’t writing about this because it truly does make me angry! Ironic how a few months […]
