Banned and Resurrected

I got this e-mail from a dear friend of mine who happens to reside on a seminary campus:
I clicked on your Rising Up blog page the other day, and the seminary sign came up that it had been BANNED!

Oh, you bad girl, you!

So I wrote to the help desk, as instructed when one wants to protest a banning. (said something like, sure, she's really bad, and gay at that...but she's my friend and I want to read her stuff--not my actual words) Today I happened to think to try again, and your page came up. So you see, some pagans do get past the screening! And someone in IT is listening.
I'm pleased to know that once again my "really bad, and gay at that" words will be available for seminary students to peruse. Mostly I'm just pleased to have friends who love me no matter how we agree or disagree.


  1. You are such a dangerous radical!
    I love it.

  2. Yup, it's pretty hard to picture you as threatening in any sense, Christine!

    And, the implications of the concept that seminarians are best trained by limiting or policing their access to the world around them are intriguing, too.

    Take care...

  3. I know - I know. I'm such a threatening dangerous presence on "the internets" - somebody censor me please!

    I am wondering if the seminary polices the internet because they have family student housing? I've no idea. You're right - it seems odd...or then again, actually not so odd from my experience...

  4. There's a really odd-sounding college-based story that I just blogged about (my new blog is LIVE now!) in which a celibate, openly gay student at a Christian university reported being given his own code of conduct (no butt-slaps on the football field, of all things) and harrassed repeatedly by college administrators.

    Strange, strange...
