I've lost count of the number of conservative #evangelical Christians that I've talked to over the last decade about #ClimatePolicy, and in the course of the conversation, they affirm their understanding/acceptance of the science, their acknowledgment of the practical urgency, the cogency and power of the ethical imperative, the need for public policy changes, yet who have nonetheless refused to consider a vote for anyone but the (conservative, significantly climate-denying, pro-coal & gas) #Coalition.

The reason? One or both of two other issues they see as more important, both of which have to do with sex: namely, the legal status of #abortion and of same gender #marriage.

In the last five years, both these issues have been resolved (the former in NSW, the latter federally) by conservative Coalition governments enacting legislation to legalise them, against the deep convictions of these evangelicals.

However, I can count on one hand the number of conservative evangelicals who have told me they now intend to change their vote as a result of these moves. Despite telling me that the only reason they were voting for the anti-climate Coalition was to keep one/both of these things illegal.

There is a #NSWelection this Saturday. One more week to convince some of them...

#NSWpol #Auspol

Cartoon from David Pope depicting a more honest version of the Australian coat of arms, containing the usual heraldic pair of animals facing each other. The kangaroo is cooking the planet on a BBQ while smoking a cigar, wearing suit and tie, has his pouch stuffed with coal and is burning a wad of climate science papers. The emu, also in suit and tie, has his head in the same. A large plume of smoke rises from the BBQ. Both heraldic endemic creatures are wearing blue ties, a symbol of the conservative Coalition that governed Australia between 2013–22, a decade in which Australia's (hypocritical, self-serving and designed-to-fail) climate policies were consistently placed at or near the bottom of international league tables, even as climate disasters kept worsening. The cartoon itself was made back in 2014, less than a year after the Coalition took office. It never became less relevant.

The Coalition has also been in government in the state of NSW (largest state in Australia; one of the largest coal-exporting jurisdictions in the world) since 2011, though faces potential defeat in the election this Saturday (25th March 2023).

"In Red America, conservative legislatures have normalized insane state laws empowering bounty hunters to identify, harass and sue women who obtain abortions and the doctors who provide them.

As our stock market brings in strong quarterly profits for shareholders, gay and lesbian Americans face the very real risk that the Supreme Court decision that legalizes their marriages could soon be overturned."

@DieselMcBeef @zero when I amd my #husband first began #dating, our very first date in fact — which was a gay #marriage equality protest — I made it clear that I am #kinky and in the public #BDSM scene and already had a #kink #family I’d become a part of. This is a part of me. It’s OK if he’s not into that but I do have people I can explore this part of me with regardless. Takes the pressure off in a way.

Further I expressed that I am a #slut. I believe in relationships and was totally open to having kids. I was happy to cool it down while we explored what we might have together. But at some point we’d need to address the slut in the room.

We did stay together. We did open up. We have a 9 year old now. Nothing’s ever perfect but we’re still at it, 15 years later. Heh.

@FrChazzz I would agree that #marriage isn’t a #sacrament to us the way that it is to Catholics. But that doesn’t mean that the only alternative is that it’s something “we came up with.” While it has taken different forms based on culture and legal systems, marriage is something God created and the basic elements of it, the intent and pattern of it, are found in #scripture. It is never same-sex in the Bible, always hetero. I would say that marriage is #ordained.

THEN, Article 24 (on the #sacraments ) says, of #marriage , that it is not to be counted as a “Sacrament of the Gospel” because it “[has] not any visible sign or ceremony ordained of God.” /1

A wife’s tribute to a long and happy #marriage

I wish to tell of a surpassing gift
How do I begin
To tell the story so long in the living
Yet barely a page complete

Too young we stepped into our beginning
How do I explain
The senseless arrows of pain we threw
Whose images still remain

As we learned with days of life
Our separate goals entwined
Youthful vision narrowed on self
Stretched to fill the needs of two

First the #idaho legislature came to ban Spanish & even though I objected, it’s not my native language so I knew I’d get by. But then lawmakers came for my right to #abortion & I protested but knew it affected me little because I’m old & #queer. Next they came denying the right for queers to be served by gas stations, stores & restaurants, even lunch counters— but it was #covid & I wasn’t eating out. Soon they came for my right to be #vaccinated & I knew I had a strong immune system so I’d likely survive. When they came for my #marriage I was bothered & said so, knowing I could cross into #nevada for new one from the little chapel with the blinking lights. When they came for the hormones #trans kids need to protect themselves from puberty, I fought hard, though I was already most certainly old. At last, when they came for our right to cross state lines to find those tattered parts of our freedom, my pleas were too late as my crossing had become a felony and they locked me in jail.

Meanwhile, other research from groups like UNICEF has argued any loopholes are largely insufficient to address coerced marriage—depriving the child of any agency in the decision.

"Parental approval can often be synonymous with parental coercion—especially in the case of an unexpected pregnancy, financial instability or other situations that might influence a parent's decision," a 2021 UNICEF policy brief reads. "In all scenarios, child marriage limits the rights of a child and deprives them of the opportunity to control their future."

If you are now, or have ever been married, I'm curious, have you ever been divorced? I've seen a variety of studies claiming one thing or another, but they don't seem to line up with my anecdotal, real life observations.

#Marriage and family life:

“Conservatives are more likely than liberals to be happily married, simply because they’re more likely to be married in the first place. […] Ideology predicts marital status among Americans about as well as income or education.”

Possible flaw: I suspect age correlates with both probability of being married and with probability of leaning right, so when you look at who’s married today, some of those (happily) married who declare to be conservatives would have been singles who identified as liberals two or three decades earlier. In other words: perhaps it’s not that being a liberal makes you less likely to marry, but that being married and having children moves you closer to conservatism!

So, long story short I'm a terrible baker and somehow I agreed to bake my wife a croquembouche for her birthday, possibly one of the most complex dishes out there (somewhere in the range of 6-8 hours of effort). My wife enjoyed several glasses of prosecco and invited a bunch of friends over to mock me in the kitchen as I fumbled my way through the recipe (the peanut gallery was part of the deal; I didn't mind).

Let's be real, this thing looks TERRIBLE and that's mostly because the shoux pastry didn't rise (apparently I added too many eggs) but let it be known that I absolutely nailed the custard and the caramel, way above everyone's expectations. It tastes great too (mainly because of the custard).
