An explanation from Forbes

First a big Thank You to Chris Ladd from Political Orphans for printing this and exposing the original post by Forbes.

Please visit the explanation article – An explanation from Forbes on Political Orphans

Also, let’s point out that Forbes does post on social issues

Now if you think that Forbes’ explanation for why they took this story down is correct, you may want to check your privilege.

Black people in the southern states have suffered because of church’s with racist ideologies pushing their goals under the guise of God since the beginning of slavery in the new world. This is truth. You can see the hatred spewed from pulpits if you listen carefully because they have gotten smarter over the years and package nicely with a big red bow.

There is a reason people fought so hard to hold on to these ideologies and that is because white supremacy was folded into society and it was even presented as needed to obtain their salvation. Those against it were pushed out cast out of white society and fled for their lives.

This is the truth.

The article removed from Forbes, “Why White Evangelicalism Is So Cruel”

I am interested to follow this story and to find out why Forbes decided to pull this article that speaks so much truth into the perseverance of racism in the south.

Here is a quote from the article that stood out to me

“Guarding women’s sexual purity meant guarding the purity of the white race. There was no higher moral demand.”

Recipes and Religion, among other things

I’ve decided since my organic box come this weekend, I will try to find recipes to make the with the things in my box for the week.  I got a cook book from the library that I have been waiting for, for quite sometime.  It’s called everything vegan and it’s published by vegetarian times (one of my favorite magazines).  So this week’s box will combine with this cook book to feed my family delicious food!  I’ll update you once I have picked some recipes!

The catholic church around the world has many members.  Here’s something that all current catholics and lapsed catholics should know about the changes that have been implemented into canon law.  You can read about them here.  http://countmeout.ie/ click past the advisory to read more information.  I am proud and very relieved to say that I was able to defect prior to this process change.

It’s been very warm here lately, way warmer than is normal for this time of year.  I am looking forward to Spring Equinox (March 20th)!  Can’t wait to paint eggs this year!
