As you probably have figured out from the name of my blog, a lot of my life is focussed around queer theology. I am currently a college student majoring in Religion and Global Health, and my passion is in all things religious and theologically related. I can and have stayed up for hours with friends and alone developing new ways to think and talk about God (Gods/the Divine/Spirituality). Because I am openly Gay, much of my work deals with issues of LGBTQQIAA spirituality and religion (and lack thereof) and the many issues of Social Justice that play into religious ideas.
I was raised Greek Orthodox and trained in that Theology from a very early age. Most of the Theology I use is LGBT liberation theology and Constructive Theology, though I do value Historical and Scriptural Theology as well.
Everyone knows the story right? If you haven't by now then you are probably one of the lucky ones in our society. Essentially John 3:16 "For God so Loved the World that he gave his only begotten Son, so that those who believe in him may not perish but have eternal life". This is the canonical Christian mindset, and people, and LGBT individuals in particular, are tired about having Christian Churches force complex and remote theologies at them. The church has often been described as a hospital, where the sick come in to become well. There is a point when the medicines and theologies that the church gives out stop being useful and are actually leaches on people's emotional and spiritual lives. It's high time that Christianity update it's medicine cabinet, with the tools God has given to humanity. Only then can Christianity hope to be timeless faith and timely message.
