POEM: Fully Known, Fully Loved

By Christi Ortiz

Sometimes I wonder if God hides our sinfulness from each other 
so we can stand to be around one another

Sometimes I wonder if God hides our glorious beauty from each other
so we don’t fall down in worship of one another

For we often fail to see the unending and abundant fountain 
of God’s Theophany in both the poverty and the power of our potentiality

Gay pride flags should not be banned in classrooms

I agree that in general, classrooms shouldn't be a place to push a particular political ideology or campaign. However, simply being gay in school isn't a political campaign. It's a recognition that a teacher's classroom is a safe place for gay kids. If that's political to you, even if the teacher never once mentions a political candidate, you've probably got a problem with the existence of the gay kids.
