“Words are bricks, which, depending on how you use them, can pave pathways or build walls.”
Jeff Chu, Does Jesus Really Love Me?: A Gay Christian's Pilgrimage in Search of God in America

“It’s as if we have all Hinduized our Christianity—is your god more a god of bellicosity and war, or does he look more like the god of prosperity, or perhaps the god of social justice?
