So the Christian community who, up to the above-cited announcement, were quite happy to support the Urban Christian Academy, show their true colors when confronted with a school that believes in diversity and support thereof.

And we have yet another day that ends in "Y".

You will recognize them by their hate. It's not like black children need an education after all πŸ™„

We keep coming back to this with christianity; the cruelty is the point.

Well, I guess it shouldn't come as a surprise when the Christian community uses that 'cancel culture' thing to close a school, should it?

This is yet another reason why so many churches can't keep butts in the pews anymore, by the way. The rest of us see this behavior and think 'Ouch, I don't want to be associated with people like that' and start avoiding Christians and their beliefs. Decent people usually recognize that the LGBTQ+ community isn't hurting anyone and just want the same rights as most everyone else; the fact that so many in the Christian community can't see that speaks to the sort of prejudice Christians really want to practice.

The school was infested with cooties. The donors had no other choice.

OT- Well, I've officially identified the worst thing about having Covid while vaccinated: realizing that my stash is worthless for the duration because I'm out of edibles, can't buy more until I'm not contagious anymore, and if I tried to smoke anything right now that would only make things worse.

Otherwise, it feels like a bad cold, and even though I only got my first symptoms two days ago I'm already feeling a little better. π˜›π˜©π˜’π˜―π˜¬ 𝘺𝘰𝘢𝘢𝘢𝘢𝘢, π˜”π˜°π˜₯𝘦𝘳𝘯𝘒.

I noticed that the Christian funding seems to be lopsided in the bigoted sects favor. There was plenty of money coming from the more fundamentalist churches, but not so much from the more progressive churches.

I always thought, despite seeing plenty of evidence that Christianity was super bigoted on this blog, that the cruel folks were in the minority. But this evidence is starting to point to the opposite, the kind Christians are fewer. I hope not. But financially speaking, hate pays.

Christian Hate. A disease that won't go away.

"The school wasn’t promoting LGBTQ anything. They didn’t really even talk about it."

According to their thinking, even the merest tolerance is the equivalent of forcing children to participate.

Homophobia from the Religion of Love.

Hey, Christians: Here's everything your savior had to say about LGBTQs...

MATTHEW: "_________________________________________________________________"

MARK: "______________________________________________________________________"

LUKE: "_______________________________________________________________________"

JOHN: "______________________________________________________________________"

Not one bit of condemnation. On the other hand, he was quite put out with religious hypocrites and those who claimed to follow him but didn't do what he said.

I generally like it when Christians behave like jerks because then I get to say, β€œHow Christian of them.”

I saw on the news that G. Santos said of Mitt Romney’s telling him he didn’t belong in Congress, β€œNot very Mormon of him.” Which is hilarious.

Live by the Bigots, Die by the Bigots.

They are not gonna change, either. Religion is nearly impervious to refutation, by design and 2000 years of Continuous Improvement. Especially true with the kind of people who prolly ponied up that $300,000+ gap with money that is proof to them that their 'god' approves of their souls and their own, pernicious True Faith.

Every notice It's a Wonderful Life was obviously fiction because the 'twist at the end' WAS a twist, and it didn't require any change in 'deeply religious' beliefs as fundamental as the ones at this school?

This loss of funding is as predictable as Thomas Sowell's historic defense of Scrooge, decades old and steeped in malicious religious 'Chosen' beliefs.
