I LOVE this blog….

Here’s a line from a blog my pal Jodene pointed me to:

…when religion becomes more institution than faith, there is no room for change.

Jocelyn, the professed and proud Christian author of WTF Would Jesus Do? is my hero.  She reads the news, listens, and passes harsh judgment on those who use the Christian religion for their own usually-power-or-personal-gain-involved reasons.  She calls ’em like she sees ’em and she sees a lot of hypocrisy and self-service in the headlines.

She wants her faith back, she wants the loving Jesus her grandmother’s talk about back. She takes on the ridiculous revenue-generating nonsense of creationism vs. science, the seriously revenue-and-power-generating issue of gays and gay marriage, wildly suggesting that Jesus loves us all…where’s the money in that?  She even takes on the issue of Christian Pajamas. She’ll stop at nothing.

Jocelyn: you are flat-out awesome.  May the force be with you.

  1. And also with you.

    (That’s a Catholic joke)

  2. The problem with being a Recovering Catholic is that you’re going to be recovering forever, at least as far as I can tell. Unless you turn Lutheran, like this really cool dude who commented on my blog.

    Anyway, even though I doubt its possibility, I wish your partner a speedy recovery.

    Thanks for the shout out for this blog. Jocelyn punches it where it needs to be punched! I’ve added it to my favorites list.
