Lmao what??? Sooo the purpose of the hijab is to “unsexualize” women” ?? That doesn’t make any sense at all. Forcing women to cover up their body, or more specifically, hair, is implying that hair is inherently sexual. Also, he talks about how the world is trying sexualize women. Okay, who? You guessed it!! Men... men are trying to sexualize women. Women aren’t the problem. All of his other points don’t make any sense either. Fuck him.

so when i was young (i cant remember what age, but young enough to where ppl were trying to shield me from reality) someone broke into my church, shattered the windows and spray painted cruel words onto the wall of the nursery and toddler classrooms.
we’ve had a security system since then; i have the key and know the code because my dad is an important member of the church.
i go there, from time to time. never to sermons, or when others are there. i go to the prayer garden i built with my grandma when i was young. to the kitchen i cooked in, feeding a hundred little kids. to the sanctuary i played piano in, sung in, changed lives in.
it feels like a graveyard now.
i watch my younger self move like a ghost, shaking with fear as i crouched in front of the statue of Jesus i had put there, my forehead touching the cold stone where my grandma had painted the words, “Thy will be done.”
the first time i snuck into a storage room and saw the security camera tapes.
banging my head on the wall in the bathroom because i felt so corrupted from the outside world.
drinking stale coffee while i yelled at a kid for making a racist joke.
i left the church soon after that. but i always look back. i am waiting for my hands to turn into a pillar of sand.

a therapist told me to pray about it
another one told me to write a letter to god
as if the countless hours i spent, sitting, kneeling, on my back 
furtively whispering, desperately trying to connect
were not enough of a one-sided therapeutic relationship already
i felt tortured praying and ashamed when i was silent
a prayer must be re-prayed if not holy enough
a dozen good prayers may counteract a lackluster one
i cannot sleep, i am late, exhausted
but at least i prayed
the words i wrote in every childhood journal
each one a chapter, an ode to that glimpse in time
the tear splashed pages, the self-deprecation, the pleas to make me
every sermon landed in my heart like a slurry of arrows
every hymn a brief respite, a balm for tormented spirits
every man who bounced his eyes while preaching submission
i was a sheep to the slaughter
i was imperfectly perfect
a captive who flagellates herself is to be praised for her efforts
servant-hearted and a slave to grace
those who are set free into captivity are free indeed

Hot take, there are only two things that can come from rethinking or investigating your beliefs and or religion:
A) you realize that it is wrong (fact wise or just not for you personally)
B) your beliefs get stronger (learn that they are correct fact wise or know that this is what makes sense and you are going in the right direction)

the "they're demons" excuse makes no sense when making the brothers bigoted towards identities the church has subjugated
demons aren't dicks for no reason their "sin" or whatever is specifically a rebellion against god
so would they not love a human who had their own reasons to rebel against the church or who has also dealt with bias those who blindly follow the church can deal?

If anyone’s looking for some nice music to listen to, I’m currently really enjoying the album Someday We Will Foresee Obstacles. I haven’t been paying attention to the lyrics /too/ much, and I’m not familiar with the artist syd matters, so if I missed something awful please tell me. But yeah other than that it’s just a nice album to listen to

If your existence does not dishonor Jack Chick or any other staunch evangelical, is life even worth living?

forgive me father, for I have ceased to believe. I choose to walk a path of denial, of doubt, of adoctrinal superstition. absolve me of my apathy, for which I feel no repentance. good afternoon, and I will see you again next thursday. our father in heaven, I curse with your name, for if the heavens and their glories are yours, so are the evils found here. if I have today my daily bread, tomorrow I will be left with only grain alcohol. my sins, such as they are, are many; forgiveness, such as it is, will never be enough. power and glory, eternity and purity—I hope these are no mere fictions. I hope every person who can simply believe will not have believed in vain—and I hope, futilely, for any hope in my own heart. I make no declaration that all this is so, or not so. and yet, in eternity I might pledge my shoulder to your infinity.

just a reminder: you don’t need religion to be a good person or one who’s “worthy” of anything. No god made morals for the world and humanity has been fine. You’ll be ok.

Catholics are well-trained abuse enablers and the fuckers don't even seem to realize it. And if they are aware of it, most don't care enough to listen to abuse survivors and change their behaviour.

“Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able? Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing? Then he is malevolent. Is he both able and willing? Then whence cometh evil? Is he neither able nor willing? Then why call him God?”
-Epicurus, Greek Philosopher

I posted my apostate playlist a while back but that’s more my Sad Apostasy Jams rather than a curated, concise playlist so here’s my ‘I’m The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing They Warned You About’ villain arc playlist:
@disteal i’m @tempest-in-ateapot lmao this is just a side blog, and I think tumblr likes to delete links in asks so here’s the villain playlist

Christians will align/compare themselves with victims of abuse and hate but won’t actually do anything to help victims of abuse and hate even within their own circles

Sorry for spamming my followers with religious trauma and ex christian posts. I’m working through some things.
Feel free to block the tags ex christian and religious trauma cause those are what I consistently use on these posts

Weird realization of the night: sin is a construct.
Like there are wrongs in the world, you can do harm to someone. But sin is a subjective construct, that changes with different religions. There can be an overlap with sin and wrong doings, but they are not necessarily one and the same because one is a bit more subjective.
Just existing as you are can be a sin in some peoples eyes, but it’s not inherently wrong, illegal, or harmful.

You’re a good Christian girl so you sit one quarter way back from the front. A woman you know is about to talk. You think she’d be an awesome Pastor if she were a man so you’ll listen. She explains that there’s a part of your body that isn’t yours. No one - not even you - is allowed to touch it except for medical purposes. Your husband can though. You have a husband. You don’t think you’ve met him yet. You have a husband. The preaching woman has a husband too. He’s an asshole. You overheard him make her cry about library fines while you babysat thier child. Your husband will be better.

I'm learning that being in a high control group has made me a fantastic actor. I had doubts for years and while I felt a lot of guilt, I also just couldn't make myself feel or act how I knew I was excepted to. So I leaned hard into the shy sweet girl archetype. Sure they think I'm at least 5 years younger than I am, but I can do the bare minimum and ignore uncomfortable topics out of "nervousness".
The real me is opinionated, blunt, and consistently makes jokes. My family will tell others this, but they don't often believe them. It goes unquestioned and gives me some freedom. Still, I will be extremely relieved when I can retire the role.
