Mercy Not Sacrifice: A Thanksgiving IHOP run and my complicity in the failure of capitalism

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MercyNotSacrifice/~3/etxEWs00Q80/


I don’t go shopping on Black Friday, not because I’m a virtuous person, but because it’s the one day when I get to wag my finger self-righteously at the concept of responsible consumerism, i.e. things like doing your homework, writing lists, making plans, comparing prices, and making responsible adult decisions, basically all the things I’ve [Read More...]

Mercy Not Sacrifice: Transphobia’s newest target: Winnie the Pooh

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MercyNotSacrifice/~3/zWAN_sbxK3I/


The transphobic Polish town council of Tuszyn has banished Winnie the Pooh from being a mascot for their playground, and Fox News wants you to know all about it. The reason: Pooh doesn’t wear any pants (just a shirt) and there is no bodily indication of which gender Pooh is. I’m used to defaulting to [Read More...]

Mercy Not Sacrifice: If you need for undocumented immigrants to be punished, then you don’t believe in Jesus’ cross

We have a broken immigration system. And it’s broken in a way that is incredibly unfair to people from south of our border who have the wherewithal and the work ethic to come up to the United States and work in the temporary labor market. You cannot get a visa to migrate to the United [Read More...]

Mercy Not Sacrifice: Two offensive analogies in the gay marriage debate from David Gushee and Andrew Wilson

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MercyNotSacrifice/~3/Q-_WPbtgl9U/


During the past couple of weeks, two arguments have surfaced on opposite sides of the gay marriage debate that are based upon offensive analogies (or “provocative” ones, depending which side you’re on). At the Reformation Project conference in DC, evangelical ethicist David Gushee made an analogy between the Biblically-based, tradition-affirmed anti-Semitism of the pre-Holocaust church [Read More...]

Mercy Not Sacrifice: The Jesuit martyrs, the pueblo crucificado, and the kingdom of God

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MercyNotSacrifice/~3/HHyRIX-ujEo/


25 years ago, on November 16, 1989, six Jesuit priests, their housekeeper and her daughter were brutally murdered by a US-trained Salvadoran death squad at the Universidad de Centroamerica in San Salvador. It was one of the lowest points in the shameful story of the US-orchestrated Central American civil wars of the 1980′s. This incident [Read More...]

Mercy Not Sacrifice: Help us build stoves with the Highland Support Project!!!

Original post at http://feedproxy.google.com/~r/MercyNotSacrifice/~3/tqTavcZBTlw/


The short term mission trip industrial complex is now a multi-billion dollar industry. Unfortunately, many short term mission trips are designed to cater to the participant more than the people being served. According to the book Toxic Charity, one church in Mexico was repainted seven times in a single summer by a series of mission [Read More...]
