If you're on Facebook, I bet you've seen this graphic. The Christianists want to pretend that God instituted a 20th-century understanding of marriage at the dawn of creation. But God did no such thing. The uber-evangelicals are creating a myth. The current understanding of marriage dates from the Victorian era. The "biblical" understanding is more brutal toward women.

I'm a progressive Episcopalian raised in the South and now (thanks to a job change) living in the conservative Midwest. I worship at Grace Episcopal Church in Jefferson City. I love the Episcopal Church, which rescued me from a life of wandering meaningless and gave me a way to explore my faith and belief in God.
On any given topic, I am prone to yammer-on way too long. Sometimes I ponder way more than I should.
A blog-friend said that I demonstrate a "muscled love for our Church." I hope I can live up to that.
And right now I'm pondering Blogger's challenge to define myself in 1200 characters.
