I'm not gonna listen to the album, because Christian music just ain't my thing, but...

𝘋𝘢𝘮𝘯, girl!

Now, moderate and progressive Christians, I want you to take notes. Pay attention. 𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴 𝘸𝘪𝘭𝘭 𝘣𝘦 𝘰𝘯 𝘵𝘩𝘦 𝘵𝘦𝘴𝘵:

𝘛𝘩𝘪𝘴 is the kind of thing we want to see more of from you. This is 𝘦𝘹𝘢𝘤𝘵𝘭𝘺 the energy we want you to carry with you to the ballot box on election day, when you'll be voting for whether or not the performer you just showed so much love for is allowed to keep performing- or to keep existing. If you can vote for an album to show your support for a Queen, but don't follow through by voting for a politician who's going to protect her rights, then this was a meaningless gesture.

All you have to do is remember what made you press 𝘵𝘩𝘪𝘴 button when it comes time to press 𝘵𝘩𝘢𝘵 button.

Not my thing either but the Drag Queen video was impressive. Kudos to the make up artist who was working while Webb was singing.

They won't though. As reprehensible as feucht is, he says out loud what christians actually think.

Whether they admit it or not, progressive christians know they need evangelicals in power to do the wetwork required to keep their self-righteous hate cult in it's comfy position of dominance.

They'll never risk losing that power They just pay lip service to democracy and humanity so they don't get hit with the stigma. And they don't have the guts to be honest about what they are. That, and they don't want to get off their asses and do the dirty work themselves.

I disagree. I think most mainstream/progressive Christians don't desire dominance. Instead they want separation of Church and State. Scopes, Kitzmiller, Schempp (both the dad and kid), Epperson, one of the Engel plaintiffs...all Christians. Practically all of our church-state separation case law is based on Christian and Jewish plaintiffs bringing suits against Christian dominionists. Everyone likes to mention O'Hare's contribution in getting prayer out of schools, but that was the exception, not the rule.

As Joan says, it's a matter of activism/energy, not specifically belief in Jesus. The conservative Christians are louder and put more effort into politics, legislation, publicity etc. than the liberal Christians.

If that was the case, bigotry wouldn't be Christianity's core tenet.

And the fact that the fuckers can't be fucking bothered to actually do anything about their fascist brothers and sisters in Christ, and instead spend all their time No True Scotsman-ing anyone who DARES level the most basic and gentle criticism of Christianity says everything.

There are Christians who actually care and try to pump the brakes, but in the US? They don't even break triple digits. They might If you include the entire continent, but in the US I doubt there's more than three dozen.

Attempting to sort out who was, or was not, a TRUE Christian has spilled enough blood to float the Navy. I simply cannot deal with these people any more.

So much hatred comes out of Sean Feucht

That daily it has to be trucked.

He thinks that his ways

Will win him great praise,

But history will say that he sucked.

Strictly speaking, it is pronounced foiked. And the first line should have only 8 syllables. Allow me!

So much hatred comes from Feucht Sean.

Well, despite my feelings about country music in general, it does seem to be a well made album from what I could hear. Congrats to Flamy Grant for breaking new ground on this one!

Feucht's opinion isn't nearly as relevant as he'd like to think, and that's good news for everyone. I'm just hoping that this means more Christians are willing to take a peek outside their bubble sometimes. The bubble is, after all, a very limiting and lonely place to be, it'd be nice for folks to join the rest of us sometime soon.

Adding Flamy Grant to the very short list of Christians with a public platform who actually try to live their beliefs to the betterment of humanity.

On the one hand: As many have said "Aint no hate like christian love."

On the other hand: There ARE christians who are NOT full of hate.

On the gripping hand: Gotta love the Streisand Effect!!!

Feucht means damp or moist. I'm sure feucht was getting feucht over, and the very thought of all of that feuchting with a drag queen was getting him very feucht indeed.

Have a towlette, pastor.

Heh, tremendous. How many heads are exploding right now? It must be like the Fourth of July. Hopefully this will open some eyes, not everyone will react with 'drag queens can't be Christian', maybe it will make a couple people think. That would be nice.

I really dislike neighbors who don’t consider their neighbors when playing music late at night.

Tonight is our town’s little summer festival and my hubs is doing concessions for tonight’s concert. We live very close to the park and we listen to the music in our beds every year. Knowing it’s a regular thing makes it easier to deal with.

This is why my husband insists we live on a rural highway 15 miles out of town. Yes, it's quiet at night, and we can actually see stars after the sun goes down, but I've never liked commuting to work.

I know, I know, First World Problems and all that.

I want to see the stars maybe 3 times a year. I want food delivery 3 or 4 times a month. Grocery delivery 5 or 6 times and french fries at midnight when I want them.

When you want to see stars can't you just whack yourself on the head? It works for Elmer Fudd and Sylvester Q. Pussycat..

I used the translate function in my browser to find out what cornet acoustique meant, so was just having some fun with you.

Here's a dwarf from "The Hobbit" using his to show what he thinks of elvish music https://youtu.be/UC2qSK3W2jc?t=60

That Carnyx is also useful as a weapon.

Do you know why the Irish dance with their arms at their sides? It makes it harder to start fights in the middle of the dance.
