How Does One Say No to Jesus? | MaryAnn Rabuck

LoveMore Blog | April 14, 2021: I reluctantly trudged over and stood before him. He was smiling down at me and looked like the typical American Catholicism Fabio Jesus seen on holy cards. “Are you my Master Teacher?” I mumbled. He nodded and smiled. “I AM,” he said. “GODDAMN IT,” I said to myself and looked down at the ground. I was seriously distraught. I also came to see the church as extremely dysfunctional in its judgment and arrogance. I saw the abuse and rage perpetrated by the nuns in my classrooms. They carried Shame and Guilt as ready weapons, and they were quick on the draw. Read more, Love more →

If Enlightenment is Empty of Everything, How Can There Be Love There? | Taja Anand

LoveMore Blog | July 7, 2020: Who cares about ‘the emptiness’ and ‘enlightenment! Until ‘you’ have ‘experienced’ both, they are just concepts and useless to ponder. Prior to experiencing them, you cannot ask the question. After experiencing them, you never would. Totally non-verbal. Ahh, but love…that you know already. Directly.

The World Moves for Love | Dan Pedersen

2/17/2020 Why I’m a Christian (And Continue to Suck at Being One) by Benjamin Sledge—When I was 27, I met two men who forever changed the way I viewed Christianity. Both were covered in tattoos, occasionally used swear words, and liked beer. All the things I had been told growing up that got you kicked out of Club God they seemed to be doing. And honestly, it confused me. Weren’t they in “sin?”—Benjamin Sledge

This man won me over with this opening quote. There was much more to his article, but much of it was I saw as pointing to unconditional love, which we don't really hear about in "institutionalized Christianity" (even though Jesus did a pretty good job of living it) which has left us with a simple but not much to cheer about two-line story: do good and get rewarded, do bad and get punished, very punished for a long, long time.
