You probably have heard a lot about Christianity, especially when it comes to the religion’s stance on homosexuality and women’s rights. But while some the media’s narrative has often focused on the religion’s conservative, often proudly patriarchal adherents, there’s a compelling argument to be made that Jesus himself had a touch of feminist in him — at least according to the anecdotes about him related by his followers in the Bible’s New Testament.
I’d even add #8 here: Jesus also didn’t care about sexist cultural notions about not socializing with members of the opposite sex, because he was on a mission and this mission was not just to men. He crossed multiple cultural lines at once when he struck up a conversation with a Samaritan woman at Sychar, and answered her questions without any tricks. He also does not shame her for having had several husbands or for living with someone she is not married to, but instead notes her honesty and is honest and direct with her in response.
Things like this are why I say Paul is full of cultural sexist bullshit when he says things like ‘women shouldn’t speak in church’. Why would Jesus speak directly with women and then tell them to shut up once he’d left? Hint: He wouldn’t. Jesus did not come here to only give abundant life to men or to give women something watered-down or lesser.
I was looking for fonts recently and fell in love with many, so I figured I’d compile all my favorites. Some of them require a tweet or Facebook post to download. All credit goes to their respective makers.
A ‘Ring of Fire’ solar eclipse is a rare phenomenon that occurs when the moon’s orbit is at its apogee: the part of its orbit farthest away from the Earth. Because the moon is so far away, it seems smaller than normal to the human eye. The result is that the moon doesn’t entirely block out our view of the sun, but leaves an “annulus,” or ring of sunlight glowing around it. Hence the term “annular” eclipse rather than a “total” eclipse.
