Superior sings in the rooms of her ice-water mansion. She never gives up her dead.
Queer privilege is being able to identify with John and Jesus’ relationship in the Bible.
Natalie must have gay privilege because she once shut down a conversation about the gayest apostle by saying, “Um, you guys, John is Jesus’ boyfriend.”

A google search for “genderqueer Jesus” doesn’t return quite as many significant results as one might expect/hope
Did it bring up a bunch of blather about chromosomes and bees and parthenogenesis and confusion about how “genderqueer” and “intersex” don’t mean the same thing? Because that’s my primary context for the subject.
Queer theology is so terrible so often.

Martha and Mary.
“The MAFA pictures are a coherent set of African illustrations of the Gospel.
They permit a good visualisation of the Sunday mass texts for the believer’s faith, the catechist’s comment and the celebrant’s homely.
Moreover they lead to prayer and, in a spirit of acculturation, the contemplation of a black Jesus.”
I especially love Martha’s hand gestures in this picture.

I have become a little too obsessed with Jesus’ breast milk
thanks to Julian of Norwich and galesofnovember.
I’m glad to spread the obsession.
You can crawl inside the hole that the spear left and drink his internal breastmilk which is blood but also water. Fluids. Just a lot of fluids in her Jesus visions.
Like, clearly she is speaking to us from a very, very different culture because this was her trying to make things simple for her ordinary lay Christians.
Please remember everyone: Julian of Norwich was the first woman writer in the English language.
Plus, The second English language book written by a woman was (partially) about Julian of Norwich.
