Lent 2008, I decided that my activity to do was to write a blog about the Catholic faith, Stargate Atlantis, and criminal justice. These are important to me those the last two vary. (Considering Stargate Atlantis was canceled, I can only live vicariously through fan fic and the occasional fan vid on YouTube.) I have earned my degree in Criminal Justice. Right now I work in security. It pays the bills but it isn’t my dream and yes, I am thankful I have a job.
I have been Catholic all my life though being serious about my faith has only occured in the last few years. I also study Catholic apologetics. I still struggle with my faith and I struggle with people who deliberately use the Catholic faith to put down others and to hurt them out of a sense of pride (aka people who are more Catholic than the Pope) hence the many posts on radical traditionalism, the rants about posters at CAF, and such.
I also deal with the dangerous elements of the Quiverfull/patriarchy movement and how they are starting to infect the Catholic Church.
I also write about how I am dealing with my depression.
I am a feminist (not a feminista who bashes men and has problems with most women). I support a woman doing what she wants (as long as it’s moral and legal and she hasn’t been forced into it) even if that means she wants to be a stay at home mother. I just don’t want to be forced into something that isn’t me. I want to work. I need to work, to be useful, and worthwhile and yes, parenting is both but it isn’t for me and the issues I currently have. I am against abortion, I support anti-discrimination laws, and I think contraception is wrong and damaging. I support women and oppose anything that is harmful and hurtful to them.
