I think the most interesting thing that has come out of the Susan G Komen meltdown is that in a weird way it has really cleared up my thoughts and relationship with my faith.
I haven’t been to church for over a year. I can’t find a place where I feel like people are warm, accepting, non-judging and real. I’m not saying all Christians are like this, I’m just saying maybe I’m an odd Christian. Maybe my heart isn’t open. I do have amazing friends of all faiths and non-faiths and I adore them. They challenge and love me in my own journey of believing.
But it changes when you have things where people use faith as a reason to deny people basic rights for health care, especially with the politically charged, conservative move of Susan G Komen to pull funding from Planned Parenthood. So many of the supporting comments were about how PP is ‘satan’s bowels’ and the people were going to hell for supporting PP.
I don’t have the final judgement call..all Chrisitans know that.
Support the things you want to. But remember to love, give, serve, and help those who need help. Stop denying in the name of religion, because that’s not what my Jesus would have done.
