Yoga should teach you something every time you practice. Today it taught me two things:
- Putting both feet behind your head does not make you better than anyone else
- Putting both feet behind your head feels really cool.
When I first made this blog I had a list of vegans and vegan Christians so that people could find other people to fellowship with and learn from. I removed the list after a while because I didn’t know if it was best to just have a list of random resources that I thought would be useful but were…
When looking up information on your reagents and the msds is super helpful….
Officially casting out a call. CVQ
I want this blog to become more active. I’m seeking more Christian, Vegan, and Queer, people to help run this blog.
Your responsibilities will be to simply post cool findings, ask questions, share personal experiences (if you want to) and just bring a different and unique perspective to the blog (community).
Reblog this post so others can see. Send me an ask if you are interested.
How does it feel
Being Christian, Vegan, and Queer?
Do you think there is a point to having a CVQ community?
I think that there is a strong need for a community of this nature. Being Christian and vegan is hard at times because you have to endure a seemingly endless onslaught of criticism from your supposed brothers and sisters in Christ over an issue of compassion that never should have been an issue for them. Being Christian and identifying with any part of the LGTBQ spectra can be immensely difficult for the reasons that everyone knows, it can be hard to keep faith when almost every theological conversation you engage in finds it’s way back to how you’re not straight and need to repent. Of course we all need to repent for our sins, but I do not believe that God ever asked me to repent for falling in love, actually, I believe He commands me to love. Being Christian, vegan, and LGTBQ is simply a recipe for ostracization. People like us need a group with whom we can have commonality and with whom we can fellowship. As Christians we should be able to have fellowship with any of our brothers and sisters, but it can be hard when your very existence comes off as a political statement. Obviously many of us don’t to just be associated with a politically charged social justice movement, we are individuals in our own right and we are not defined by the political connotations of our sexual or ethical identities, and yet I think people find it hard to separate the individual from what they represent to them. I don’t mind people wanting to talk to be about my faith, or my sexuality, or my ethics, I do mind being disregarded as a “radical” or “sin apologist” by the people whom I am supposed to be worshipping along side. But It’s not just other Christians that make it hard. There are plenty of non-Christians who will have the same tendencies to dilute my personhood to a social rebellion that I have neither endorsed or chose to represent. When you are Christian, vegan, and LGTBQ every kind of person who identifies as only one of these or maybe two, or maybe none, will have a reason to think that you have “taken things too far.” I don’t think it is my place to say who is wrong and who is right in these things, but I do know that it can be, from time to time, hard to exist in this way. We need a community. Even though there are not many of us there are probably more of us than any one of us thinks and we need to see that we are not alone in this. We need to see that you can love God with all your heart, mind, soul, and strength, and you can also love someone of the same gender as you, and you can do both of those while loving God’s creatures and refusing to harm them knowingly and do what we can to protect them. We need to know that we are not crazy for thinking that we can be all three of these identities at once without ever facing a stone cold wall of cognitive dissonance over it. We need each other.
trying to convince my friend to get out there are try new things and be adventurous turned into getting her a profile on an online dating site. She agreed to try so long as I did. I wish her the best and figured if it makes her happy I would join her. So here I go into the exciting wold of online dating! Don’t expect to see much come from it :P
Don’t mind this video, it’s just the February video for my friend Crissy that Crystal and I made. This one is just us crying over a sad movie. Spoiler alert if you have not seen prayers for bobby!
