Friday Links!


It’s Friday! And we’re getting ready to leave town to attend a wedding. So I’m running around a little crazed right now…

Here’s a collection of news and other things that struck me as worthy of being shared:

An important perspective… Even if I don’t agree with all of his points. The Shifting Landscape on LGBT Issues in the Evangelical Church.

Really bad and inaccurate headline. Most progressives I know do completely understand this. What we continue to not get is why folks like the author keep apologizing for the irrational bigotry of the fundamentalists, and why he and others keep referring to the fundamentalist evangelicals as merely traditional. What progressives fundamentally don’t get about traditional Christians.

About fontfolly

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I write fantasy, science fiction, mystery, and nonfiction. For more than 20 years I edited and published an anthropomorphic sci-fi/space opera literary fanzine. I attend and work on the staff for several anthropormorphics, anime, and science fiction conventions. I live near Seattle with my wonderful husband, still completely amazed that he puts up with me at all.
