From Interpance!

Whitesups fear unhinged that which befalls
Their race, and so construct big walls.
Entrenched and so strange,
Their ideas you won't change,
So just give them a kick in the balls.


There once was a Klansman called Billy
Whose cape was so long he felt silly.
With sharp scissors he cut
Some length of it but
He messed up and chopped off his willy.

Oh look, this again

South to the south there's a place I know
Where the streams run clean and the cool winds blow
Wish I could lay my head down low
But my lady calls and away I go

Said "take your sword and take your spear
And a kiss from the ones who hold you dear
I'll wash away all your crippling fear
And we'll make this the empire's final year"

Skaa to the left and terris to the right
And the nobleman come to make things right
They said none could best the emperor's might
But they're holding strong and prepared to fight

The tower looms, the fires blaze
Our whole world in the balance sways
The inquisition's iron gaze
Can't hold us to their broken ways

I gave my life to the queen's command
So here I'll hold and here I'll stand
Pretty little thing tried to take my hand
But my heart belongs to Direland

We danced and drank as the empire fell
And what comes next no man can tell
But I'll hold you close and I'll serve you well
My warrior queen and my blushing belle

I love that you have minions.

Blessed are the Crazy, for their understanding of the human condition and their own selves is beyond the reach of the sane.

Blessed are the Hypocrites, for the internally consistent are not equipped to handle a reality filled with imperfect solutions and enemies of enemies.

Blessed are the Imperfect, Blessed are the Messy

Blessed are those who have an inflexible belief in what does and does not constitute a sandwich, and a flexible concept of reality

Blessed are the Stubborn

What prompted you to check the church out QG?

In August the Nazis had a rally on Boston Common and I burned myself all the way out screaming at elected officials to jump on the fire. At the event, I was presented with the opportunity to punch a Nazi and chose not to (for what I believe are good reasons that still keep in line with my general "punch the fucking Nazis" political stance). There were 40,000 people and it was tense and there were fights and I needed to process that shit, and the church is right outside the office building where we rent space, and they put up a sign about having a kind of "emergency" service/emotional support thing with all the Nazi shit going on. I'd seen the new Reverend at our local FUCK THE NAZIS IN PRINCIPAL event, he seemed like a good guy and I was falling down pretty hard, so I went.

This past Sunday, he let us know that his partner's father killed himself, and it's a hard thing to deal with. I went to his office hours and gave him some of the stuff I worked up for Holy Nonsense and another project I'm working on, because dealing with grief and depression is kinda all I do some days, and if I'm gonna sit here being a sadsack I'd better be able to sublimate SOME of that shit into something useful for another human.

Discordia is an excuse to Do Things.

According to the internet I am a 93% match for UU-ism. Maybe I'll check it out. It's probably the closest thing I've seen to the "atheist church" I keep hoping will spring into existence. The real obstacle is that with everything tilted toward "moral support", what are the chances there's any high-protein-content spiritual guidance going on? I'm not really looking for religious authority, but it would be cool if there was a place that could teach me how to astral-project myself into the white house and force-choke someone.

It's entirely dependent on your local people. Force choking is probably not very likely, the few unifying things the UUs have are pretty clear on the non-violent stuff. The Satanic Temple (the folks with the headquarters in Salem MA, not one of the other groups) may be closer to your interests? I mean, they're still super atheists and unlikely to dick around with astral projection, but they're gonna be more supportive of the whole idea.

I didn't read any of this thread, I was just clever elsewhere and wanted to share

this is 169% in line with our stated values and mission, if anyone complains I volunteer to personally feed them a moldy cheese sandwich

The biggest thing with UUs is that every parish is different. Some of them are barely disguised Catholics or Baptists, some of them are basically a social club for old people. And it's not even necessarily the same year to year. I actually made an attempt a few years back to join this church and noped the fuck out. In that time they took stock of who they were and what they wanted to do, and took a HUGE step over towards getting things done as opposed to navel gazing. Maybe 2016 shook them up, too, the way it shook up a lot of folks. Whatever happened, there's like, this whole community of people who are close to where I am in my head, and want to find and support people like me in the shit we're already doing. And holy shit do I need that, you don't even know.

I joined a church? It's weird. The local UUs are, strange as this may sound, very nearly our kind of people. Like, the chair of the worship committee described it as "the church for people who burst into flames walking into other churches." Nobody talks about an afterlife. At. All. Nobody asks God to cure anybody of anything, nobody advocates being nice and letting sky pixies sort it out. The weekly prayer always includes something to the effect of "give us the balls to go fix this shit." The collection plate gets shared with lawyers who advocate for victims of sexual assault and charities serving Puerto Rico, the meeting hall gets used for meet the candidate events, and there are rainbow flags at the door and next to the altar. They hold discussions about systemic racism and white supremacy, they hold vigils on trans remembrance day, there are pagan-y services and the name tags include pronouns. The minister is a petite trans dude and the first time I saw him was at the pop-up "oh shit Nazis" in our town, and the first time I went in for a service was after those nazi fucks showed up in Boston and I cried like a bitch.
They really, genuinely, care about The Work, and they want to support the people doing it, and they want to do more of it themselves while keeping themselves sane. And yeah, they're not perfect, but they're queer and they're nice and they give a fuck and they fall down and get back up.

It's still super weird, you guys.
