She has a pretty good point. The God that American neo-conservatives seem to worship seems to love hell, hate gay people, never forgive women who don't regret abortions, wants Evangelical Protestant Christianity embedded in the American government, supports the views that the government shouldn't help poor people and teaches His followers to worship the institution of the Church and not Jesus's teachings and Jesus. I love the white people that call this woman racist against whites and accuse her of saying the word "aint". These would probably be the same people to accuse people to not accuse all white American southerners of being rednecks. What ever you do, don't read the comments. I have no words. :angry-jumpinganger:

I heard that as absolute sheer pain and a visceral reaction to what happened in court. The verdict felt like a punch in the gut to her.

I'm not a Christian any more but when I was I would have known what she said. You don't stand on ceremony with God, any more than he is supposed to stand on ceremony with you. If you have a horrible agonised feeling, and are angry, you are supposed to say to him why you are angry and listen to the reply. If Professor Butler is a Christian, she's doing what she's supposed to do.

She's, in amongst her pain, also appealing to her readers to see the difference between the racist pseudo-God who is held up as the One they should worship and the God of the Bible. She's not saying what the *actual* God is is nothing but a racist stalker. She's saying "That is the fake God which is being held in front of you. Stop believing in that God."

      I danced through my living room feeling awesome. From time to time I do this. Maybe wine is involved. Good music is definitely involved. It is awesome. I recommend it to you. With or without wine.

      After a few months of trying to decide what kind of new computer to get and my brother telling me a Mac would be the best decision I could ever make and my sister telling me that would be the worst and I ought to stick to Windows.... I now have a used Mac. I am trying to get used to it. Not easy, but the Magnifying program is a lot better than the Windows one (that was the ultimate reason for my decision) and FJ works a lot better than on my 10-year old Laptop, too!!

      Y'all, holter monitors suck. And naturally the palpitations that caused this test to be ordered are remarkably absent today. 
      I'm off to go work out in the hopes that triggers it. T minus 10 hours till I get this thing off.

      I frigging hate the toilets at this worksite. Specifically the door locks. Stupid little knoblet that isn't clear if it is locked or not. Door opens right off the main hallway and the toilet is just far enough from the door that I can't just hold the door shut in case I've got the lock wrong. I mean really people, how hard is it to design this? I just want to pee in private with no anxiety. Apparently that is too much to ask for.

      First thing I'm doing when I get to the hereafter is finding the ancestors who moved to the US in the first place and asking them what the fuck they were thinking moving here in the first place.  Along with giving them an epic the reason you suck speech hopefully in the presence of God and the Lord Jesus Christ Himself to all of them for condemning their descendants to living in a shithole.

      Do any of you play Dyson Sphere Program?   For those who don't know what it is I'd suggest Googling it, because there's no way I could do it justice. 
      There's always just one more thing to do before I turn off.  Blink!  And it's 2 hours later.

      I have a chance to undergo esketamine treatment for depression.  If any FJers have any thoughts, I’d appreciate them.
