zeborah: I believe in safe, sane, and consensual Christianity. (credo)
If you're a Christian and you're subscribed to me then chances are you're sick of how the vast majority of Christians who make it into the media are saying things that really don't represent our actual faith. Like, really don't represent it. Like, they're bashing the very groups of people Jesus was best buddies with. They're perverting his message of "Love your neighbour as yourself" by hedging it about with "except" and "unless". And when we're silent, we're letting them do it.

So me and [personal profile] julesjones and [personal profile] alex_beecroft have decided to speak up. This Pentecost (Sunday May 23rd) we're going to each write a blogpost aimed at explaining to the more 'fundamentalist' of our fellow Christians why we think it's fundamental to Christianity to be pro-choice, pro-LGBTQ rights, pro-immigration, pro-healthcare, pro-taxes -- in short, pro-love.

And if you're a fellow Christian, we'd love it if you'd join us in making your own blogpost and/or spreading the word around. --Note in particular: We're not aiming to convert any non-Christians to Christianity. (I might end up writing about why I think seeking converts nowadays is downright wrong.) We're aiming to convert fellow Christians into love.

We have a Dreamwidth community and a LiveJournal community. (Current settings are just pending a chance for us to chat when we're all awake, yay timezones.) Our official blurb-thing is in the profile. Feel free to gank my icon here, or any of the ones Alex made, or make your own.
