"...if not exactly a thing of beauty, certainly a joy forever."

Roses Red, Violets Blue
— Honestly, I think Tumblr might be the worst thing for my interfaith thinking.

To see people spending so much time sniping about these tiny things makes me forget their lives are so much bigger (something I logically know, but lose sight of emotionally). Y’all have families and partners and lovers and coworkers and this whole big life out there that ends up being fodder for a religious argument instead of being representative of the fact that faith is something that hopefully permeates one’s life, not punishes it. I hate seeing that, and it’s more often something cruel than something curious from these anonymous askers out there. I feel like I should spend more time with folks of faith IRL than on here, because while neither bodily or internet presence can give anyone the whole picture, this picture doesn’t seem worth seeing.
