SB 1062 sends Christian blogger over the edge

SB 1062 sends Christian blogger over the edge

This just in from blogger Kristin Howerton: “PRESS RELEASE: Blogger loses will to write/live after being asked to weigh in on proposed gay discrimination laws:

As Howerton was faced with the prospect of writing yet another post gently reminding Christians of their duty to love others, she suddenly felt that she could no longer go on blogging. “I just cannot handle writing one more response to this kind of ignorance,” she said. “I quit.

Rachel Held Evans can handle this bull$%@#.”

When asked if perhaps her hetero-privilege was showing by writing a post that focused on how these laws affect her blogging as opposed to the ACTUAL victims of the law, Howerton conceded that perhaps she was, in fact, minimizing the real pain and suffering that this would cause for gay residents of said states. “Look, I know it will be difficult for them. But I went with this ‘press release’ literary device in the hopes that the absolute absurdity of it all could perhaps sway the minds of some of the folks behind this madness.” Howerton went on to detail the many times she has addressed bigotry towards the LGBT community at the hands of Christians. She maintains that satire was her only hope, since previous attempts at using logic, compassion, and the ACTUAL WORDS OF OUR LORD AND SAVIOR JESUS CHRIST had not put an end to the hate.”

Funny (and ain’t it the truth?). Read the entire piece here.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
