Virgin Yahweh vs. Chad Shiva


  • Scatters followers for constructing a building
  • Insecure, demands exclusive attention
  • Never married
  • Can't even kill his son, has to have Romans do it
  • Waits three days to ressurect son, then sends him away to await the "second coming"
  • Blows up evil cities

Referring to now here's why I'm punching you

A premise of this post is that sanctioning people is sometimes better than the alternatives.

I mean that literally, but mostly metaphorically. Things I take as metaphorical sanctioning include name calling, writing angry tweets to or about someone, ejecting them from a group, callout posts, and arguing that we should sanction them.

Given that sanctioning people is sometimes better than the alternatives, I think we need to be able to have conversations about when “sometimes” is. And indeed we can and do have those conversations. Many words have been spilled on the subject.

But I think it’s probably a good idea to try to avoid having those conversations while actually sanctioning people.
