My Rainbow Coalition

Much of my recent mileage has been spent thinking about politics.  Yeah, I know, it’s boring inside my brain.  It’s not just the usual politics bullshit about our inept Congress or my worry over the negative, soul-crushing presidential campaign, but more about my friends and family, the people I love and respect, and their WIDE RANGE of political leanings and how those relate to their religious or non-religious beliefs.  It’s a lot of intense thought and I’ve had an inspiring idea for how to talk to my circle of liberals, conservatives and everyone in between.  More on that to come.

I do want to suggest a very good read to all of my people, about the Chick-Fil-A controversy. ( Here’s a primer if you have been living under a rock).  Wayne Self, a playwright and writer of the blog Owldolatrous, has posted what I consider to be the most coherent, authentic and courageous argument for the boycott of Chick-Fil-A.  I would encourage ALL of my people to read it because it really does affect ALL of us.  It helped me confront the biases I still cling to, and that I am working to release.  Please, take a deep breath, find a few minutes, be brave and dive in.  I would not steer you wrong into a one-sided polemic.  This one matters.
