Lost. /things I miss/

Pt 1 (written January 2017) "Isis is persecuting Christians and Catholics all over the world, just like democrats are persecuting us Catholics here in the U.S." -said during Prayer of the Faithful And with that, my spiritual space crumbled beneath me.

Brown / Orgullo Renacido

Can I just first say that I can't remember the last time I was this nervous to post my thoughts? I wanna put that out there. Like, literally, I'm experiencing anxiety as I type this intro to the video below. I'm trying to find as many words to put in between this text and my [...]

On hypocrisy.

Well, I was thinking at how not good that can be at times. Explore? Of course, friend. So first, let's just [...]
