When someone tells me Jesus loves me, I get a sad pang in my heart. Like how could he love me -- me, someone so
undeserving of love.

But I'm not Christian -- I was raised that way between the ages six and ten -- but otherwise I was in the Unitarian
Universalist Congregation.

"Unitarian Universalists hold the Principles as strong values and moral teachings. As Rev. Barbara Wells ten Hove explains, “The Principles are not dogma or doctrine, but rather a guide for those of us who choose to join and participate in Unitarian Universalist religious communities.”

    1st Principle: The inherent worth and dignity of every person;
    2nd Principle: Justice, equity and compassion in human relations;
    3rd Principle: Acceptance of one another and encouragement to spiritual growth in our congregations;
    4th Principle: A free and responsible search for truth and meaning;
    5th Principle: The right of conscience and the use of the democratic process within our congregations and in society at large;
    6th Principle: The goal of world community with peace, liberty, and justice for all;
    7th Principle: Respect for the interdependent web of all existence of which we are a part."

In Unitarian Universalism, you can bring your whole self: your full identity, your questioning mind, your expansive heart.

We are creating a force more powerful than one person or one religion. By welcoming people who identify with Atheism and Agnosticism, Buddhism, Christianity, Humanism, Judaism, Earth-Centered Traditions, Hinduism, Islam, and more, we are embodying a vision “beyond belief:” a vision of peace, love, and understanding.

*sigh*

I know that I'm hardly on here anymore and when I am all I do is rant or complain or be pathetic.

Confession:
The world demands us to wear masks; it is our duty to tear them off.
The problem tho is that I am too afraid to take mine off completely.
I show corners, cracks and edges of my real face when it is safe to do so;
but I will never be safe -- even if I'm hiding in the system.
It's because I'm different and broken and amazing.
And they fear people like me. Those in charge.
Because it is people like me who will bring their system crashing down.
It is people like me that will make the masks obsolete.
People like me will make it safe for everyone to show their true faces.
But until then, I hide.

I wrote this tonight after reading some posts waaaaay back in this thread.
You have scars? So do I. I was killed so that the world could be. I stood silent as men told lies about me that I might know every lie told across time. I was innocence condemmed for all who are unfairly judged. For all who are bound I am a brother in bonds. I was with those who died under Hitler's heel. I cry with the children who are violated. I am he who understands.
You Have scars? So do I. For all your bruises I was beaten with rods. I was whipped for every time you bleed. I was robbed of my children who were sold as slaves. I carried my stake for the martyr and the suicide. I was nailed to a post by my hands and feet. I said "forgive" and died for those who feel guilt and shame. I was mocked and spit on by the mighty so I could comfort the lonely. I was stabbed by a solder's spear for every death in war. I am he who died for you.

Confession: even after just one day here I'm starting to learn that I'm not alone, but also that sometimes it's okay to be alone.
