We need a world full of Susie’s. I’m glad you finally saw the light, as it were. There is no reconciling the teachings of Jesus with the economic and social ideology of the Conservative Right Wing in the USA. These people are more in love with Genesis and Leviticus and openly defy anything Jesus of Nazareth had to say. They aren’t Christian in any way beyond a false label.
Great article!! Thank you for taking the time to write & share with us.
My story is similar, except my relationship with Jesus caused me to not only walk away from conservative evangelicalism, but politics all together. Jesus came in riding a donkey, but He wasn’t one. ;-)
Of COURSE someone unevolved and still clinging to their upbringing (with a completely inabiity to think for themselves) will refer to this as “backsliding”—as that’s the *safe* thing for them to do.
