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, and 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 .
