April 07 2022 By dvirtue Rowan Williams' stance on "trans" issues undermines Christianity

It is ambitious because it moves mental illness from a psychiatric condition of impairment onto a platform that fuses together sanctity and therapeutic integration.

April 01 2022 By dvirtue Wokeism Meets Reality

But even more jarring than this veneer of the social Gospel over the particle board of race-mongering was the complete revision of the parable of the Prodigal Son.
