“Can you imagine what it feels like to be told that your natural self is an abomination to the God whom you love and with whom you try to walk a life of spiritual reflection? Of course people are going to be ashamed, offended, horrified and confused when they hear this sort of thing.” – Stuart Edsor
And yet, so many marginalized people hear this type of fundamentalist nonsense all the time and reject all interest in spirituality. It saddens me . . .
Maybe it’s time to just start loving people.
