Porn has evolved from the airbrushed misogyny of glossy spreads in Playboy and smutty films sold in seedy shops. It is corporate and easily available. Its products today focus less on sex between a man and a woman and increasingly on groups of men beating off on a woman’s face or tearing her anus open with their penises. Porn has evolved to its logical conclusion. It first turned women into sexual commodities and then killed women as human beings. And it has won the culture war.
We are proud to announce our newest Reconciling in Christ congregation, St. Luke’s Lutheran Church in Bellevue, Washington.
"St. Luke’s has a tradition of taking its name sake seriously, this is a grace community with a deep tradition of healing ministry. ‘Belonging precedes believing’ is a mantra that best orders our bias for Christian ministry. We believe everyone needs a Christian community to call home. Our Lord had a very simple directive for his disciples, ‘Follow me’. That is an inclusive invitation. The Holy Spirit can better inform our faith within a loving church that makes space for every stranger. St. Luke’s Board of Trustees unanimously recommended to the congregation that we could best serve our Lord Jesus Christ in this very diverse international community by becoming a Reconciling In Christ Congregation. In its annual meeting the church took that recommendation and voted unanimously, enthusiastically in the positive. Whereas St. Luke’s has long lived in an inclusive ministry with the LGBT community our joy is now making that a public confession.”

But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most?
I’ve eaten an obscene amount of ice cream today and I don’t care at all but I’ll probably have a new stretch mark somewhere tomorrow. That’s what happened the last time I did this.
i remember until i was ten, i spelt ‘satin’ like ‘satan’ and i went to a christian school and they called my parents because i wrote ‘satan is soft like a bunny’ and they wanted the priest to talk to me
Satan is glad you appreciate the effort.
Satan uses Garnier Fructis to lock in moisture.
I JUST LOST MY SHIT
Note: The REAL Piper of Orange is the New Black has clearly stated, "Well, you know, I’m bisexual so, I’m a part of the gay community.” Additionally she has pointed out that she came out at "either 18 or 19", and "had relationships with many, many women before I met Nora and after I met Nora."
So viewers should be aware that it was a "creative decision" of the shows writers, producers + NetFlix to minimize and erase the character’s actual + stated bisexuality by never using the "B-Word", turning her instead into a tired bisexual trope. This should not be viewed as at all realistic.
IRL Piper Kerman is a strong, interesting, out bisexual women in a different gender marriage, who participates in her LGBT Community and works hard for Prison Reform.
