It is TOTALLY Buffy’s fault I haven’t been to church in months. Totally is, Elizabeth+ has the newspaper article to prove it.
Nothing at all to do with the fact there is nothing, literally NOTHING the Church gives me to do except write a check. Any suggestions I have offered up are shot down with, “We’ve tried that, before you were born, it didn’t work.”
And when I am asked to do something, to attend a meeting or a class? Yeah. Retirees may be able to make it at 10am on a Tuesday. I can’t.
Nothing to do with the fact that the only worship service all week is at 9am, and literally the only luxury I can afford in my student-loan-repaying life is sleep.
The longer I am away from church, the farther back I stand and look at church, the angrier I get at church.
I’m going home and putting my Joss Whedon Is My Master Now t-shirt back on.
