Because seriously, some people deserve them.

To my pulmonologist, who did an actual CAT scan of my lungs in anticipation of a hospitalization she knew was coming, so that they’d see the unmistakable signs of pneumonia and know they’d have to take me even though they very much did not want me in…

Acting on a deep call to a different ministry →

fiatluxetfactaestlux:

Just going to leave this here. 

The real question, of course, is: how are they ordaining women bishops?
If these women really are traditionalists, then they are doing it with very explicit permission from several of “the dudes.”  

If not, then they should have just placed themselves under Canterbury.

I love my Sisters (pt 7,895,309…)

joyful-serenity:

I left my baby nasturtium seedlings with a particular Sr friend whilst on holiday. I come back, and not only have they been well looked after, (and two more seedlings have appeared) but she also transplanted in a small flowering nasturtium, to give them “some inspiration”.

Also, eldest Sr informed me authoritatively that food eaten on holiday is slimming, no matter what it is.

And another of the older Srs asked “would you join us? Would you like to be a Nun?”, so I said “well, I’d rather be a Nun than be married to a man, and have to live with him.” “Ahh” she said, “I know how you feel!”

the beard is back!: King Felipe VI watching the Spanish Men’s Basketball team play Argentina. The Spanish team won with the help of Serge Ibaka, who referred to the King as “cool.”

There is a reason monarchs are all gorgeous you know.  They only marry pretty people.

Queen Sonja and Crown Prince Haakon yesterday attending the opening day of the Offshore Northern Seas. The Queen opened the conference, with a speech talking about the importance of balancing the need for energy and the environment, saying “Climate change has become a central issue on our global agenda.”

The Crown Prince attended the trade fair in Stavanger. The ONS conference is annual conference that involves key players involved in the oil and gas industry. Its objective is to "facilitate knowledge sharing and collaboration across the global energy industry."

I realize that monarchies are quite illiberal, but it would be hard to find another uncontroversial multigenerational system of symbolic national leaders.  Especially ones this cute.

American Quakers are Running an ‘Underground Railroad’ to Help LGBT Ugandans Flee 

A group of American Quakers are operating what they call a “new underground railroad” to help a few LGBT Ugandans flee their country, where a recent law imposes harsh penalties for homosexuality.
The Friends New Underground Railroad (FNUR), based in Washington state, sees itself as continuing the work of Quakers who historically helped slaves escape the American South. As of this Monday, they say they have worked with unnamed Ugandan “conductors” to fund and coordinate passage out of the country for 107 lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender Ugandans, nine of whom have reached Sweden, while several dozen others are “being processed for asylum status in countries around the world,” according to the group’s FAQ page.
Read on.


No shit!
That’s interesting. Except it reeks of white savior complex. And couldn’t their efforts be better directed to supporting Ugandan groups already working for policy change. So that people don’t, like, have to leave their home country and shit? But that’s interesting and I like it when some Christian groups try to be good people around LGBTQ issues.

They are working with Ugandans to fund the thing, while it sounds like Ugandans and Kenyans are making most of the decisions; according to the article, the Organization for Refuge, Asylum, and Migration is worried that the whites aren’t involved enough.  And policy change is important, but there are also people who just need to get out.

So my facebook friend just posted this pic with this text….


Well, I just witnessed blatant racial injustice with my own eyes. I was getting in my car after exiting a store when a young black man stumbled past me and collapsed against the store wall. When I got out to see if he was okay, a group of white people came rushing over, one of whom was a 20-something white woman who declared in distress, “I ran a red light and hit him with my car!” People immediately assured her that SHE would be okay, meanwhile the young man is writhing in pain on the ground, pants leg torn, tears running down his face. When the police arrived and the young woman explained what happened, it was suggested to her that maybe the light had been yellow and that the young man had “darted out into the street into her path.” I was floored. I said, “But she just SAID she ran the red light and hit him in the intersection!” 





The police officers then led the young woman away and began talking with her privately in low tones. When the paramedics FINALLY got there I was surprised at the hostility they showed towards the young man. One blonde female EMT (shown in the photo) suggested that he couldn’t be THAT hurt if he was able to walk from the place where he was struck to the sidewalk where he finally collapsed. White bystanders commented several times about “What that poor girl must be going through.” I was the only one who commented on what the young man must be going through, what, with his mangled leg and all. I am absolutely positive that in the end “that poor girl” will be absolved of all wrongdoing and be able to go on her merry way. After all, she just ran a red light and slammed her car into the body of some black kid on a bike, right?And people wonder why black people are so angry and want to break shit.
















It amazes me what passes for white these days.
