In light of the “religious freedom” nonsense that has gone on in Indiana (and rock on to the people who are protesting this nonsense), I really wish I’d written this letter to Indiana, from Jesus, at John Pavlovitz: Stuff That Needs to Be Said:
I’ve seen what’s been going on there lately. Actually, I’ve been watching you all along and I really need to let you know something, just in case you misunderstand:
This isn’t what I had planned.
This wasn’t the Church I set the table for.
It wasn’t the dream I had for you, when I spoke in those parables about the Kingdom; about my Kingdom.
It was all supposed to be so very different.
Do click on the link and read the rest. It’s priceless.
As a bonus, here is Indiana Gov. Mike Pence saying he is seeking guidance to clarifying the law. He says:
“Despite the irresponsible headlines that have appeared in the national media, this law is not about discrimination. If it was, I would have vetoed it.”
Uh-huh. Well, then. That explains things.
And thanks, DickG., for the link. And thanks, Sis. Carole, for the photo.
