There have always been two Christianities, one rooted in empire and the other resistant to it.
I really wish there was a way to get people to know that there are branches of Christianity besides White southern Evangelical. There are branches of Christianity that aren't homophobic, aren't White supremacist, and aren't authoritarian.
I want to scream, "We need to advertise! Why shouldn't we advertise! Get the word out far and wide."
But using advertisement in this way is like the Ring of Doom in LoTR. It's the weapon of the enemy. To use it is folly.
I don't know what kind of syndrome this would be but I believe there is a tendency to stay in abusive or otherwise toxic environments solely to support others that are with a person in the environment.
Like it would make logical sense for everyone in the party to leave, but none leave because they all rely on each other for emotional support.
