I have written and deleted a lot of stuff here. I realized today that I started this place over 5 years ago.
I cleaned out some major stuff this morning, in hopes that I would be able to resurrect it as a new place to incite change in social media to defend the silenced. I saw the comments. I remembered the people. I remembered the mind I had then.
I have been a lot of places to get to where I am now. I have lost hundreds of friends. I have tried to gain hundreds more.
The things I deleted today were from a time long gone. I no longer defend Jesus. I defend people who suffer because of that name. And I want to be able to change my identity.
I have a problem.
My name is stuck to this place.
I realized that I had two followers. Both of them would not recognize me any more.
The pain in the loss of my identity, time and time again, is something that I can’t describe on a blog.
The pain of seeing people suffer at the hands of the church is worse. I can’t really deal with that pain effectively.
I have four people I want the two people who read this blog to know.
1) Michael Newnham. He has been in the business of speaking for the silenced in the church for years.
2) Alex Joye. He has been in the business of speaking for the silenced in the church for years.
3) Stephanie Drury. She has been in the business of speaking for the silenced in the church for years.
4) Julie McMahon. She is silenced by the church to this day. My hope is that this changes.
Tony Jones is selling books today. Tony Jones is the most vile human I have ever had the displeasure of even knowing about. And that is saying a lot, having been a part of Calvary Chapel for as long as I have been.
There are numerous people who support that man. I have no respect for them either.
Anyway… to the people who read this, I have to move on. My name is attached to way too many things, and that makes me a problem.
