I post mostly messages and commentary about religion and politics, and the scary occasions when they collide.
I am a: Liberal, Green, Christian, Math teacher
Lover of Math, Philosophy, Animals, Civil Rights, and Arguments of all kinds.
Every time I see people complaining about churches/ministers, it makes me want to go to seminary. Sermons should be uplifting, but they should also engage the tough questions. I feel like I could do a better job than many of them.
