On Interview with a Pastor on Spiritual Grammar, Mysticism and Coming Out

I love this series -- and especially this one featuring a fellow Green Bay Catholic school kid. Now I just mostly want to know where he went, even though there's about a million other questions I also want to ask him!

On Young Women Refusing to Commit (to Nun Life)

As a middle and high schooler, I really considered being a sister. I had amazing teachers as examples of passionate, devoted, feminist, progressive women. It seemed like a dream to me to live among all these women who cared so much about service and each other. There's got to be a better way for them to reach out to young women, but I think some of the decline is also due to the evangelical Christian ideas that are influencing young Catholic women about the woman's place in the home. I was always taught about the three vocations - married, single, religious - but the attitude in the Church seems to promote married life over the other two these days.

On Happy Birthday, Anne Frank

@Daisy Razor @hot doom @scandyhoovian seriously, it's such a wreck to watch. Why it was Daniel Pearl that gave me the big tears on my first watch, I do not know. It was a snowball, too, thinking about the featured people only made me think of a million more people I wish could still share their lives with the world.

On Happy Birthday, Anne Frank

This is as devastating as that ADL "Imagine a World Without Hate" video that imagines Anne winning the Nobel Prize for literature. That video made me weep for days.

On Close-Reading a Controversial List, Take 2

@meetapossum I was also baffled, but then I just decided being imprisoned by her own kid was making her mad delusional and maybe hangry.

@MilesofMountains that makes me so sad because Catelyn also believes she is the sole cause of the way/everything bad ever apparently
