Whoot! I can finally comment!! What did you have to change?

What a powerful post Lisse! I've had similar feelings for a while now and questioned, what does it mean to be a Christian in this day and age. I try to live the New Testament, even as the "Old Testament" men in power try to shove "their religion" down our throats. I am not sorry to see Jerry Falwell dead. But I fear his replacements will be just as bad. Somewhere along the line, we (our country) have lost our way. I hope more women and men like you are able to be a voice of reason and hope in the future.

I LOVE this post. I was raised in a christian fundamentalist home, but my feelings now are exactly the same as yours!

I'm with you. In my blog I talk about my faith but, I'm hesitant to use the word Christian because I feel like the Right Wing Republicans have custody of the word and I don't want to be associated. I go to church on Sundays and pay tithes, but I don't want to be associated with "Christian Family Values." I frankly think those people are in denial of reality. I came out recently against the Christian Family Value sect's opposition against providing all girls with the HPV vaccine, http://www.traceesioux.blogspot.com and http://www.blogfabulous.com. Virginity and abstinence are so important that we're going to let girls die of cancer? I don't think that's "Christian" and I don't think it's a good "family value" to be in denial about adolescent sex. Tracee Sioux at http://www.blogfabulous and http://www.traceesioux.blogspot.com .
