“Why Unsaved Loved Ones? What is that about?” you may be asking…..well, this blog chronicles a spiritual journey of self-reliance, determination, and BLAH BLAH BLAH BLAH BULLSHIT! I’m not going to pretend this is something other than one of the billion different attempts at expression nobody really gives a shit about. But this rifle is mine.
In what is probably the fifth or sixth iteration of the “About” page, I’ll try to keep it short and say that this blog started as a way to chronicle my experience with gastric bypass surgery, and these days the focus is cooking and dining with the occasional left turn into addiction recovery and evangelical culture. I don’t promote the blog other than letting Facebook friends know when I’ve posted something new, and I don’t get much traffic at all, which works for me because then there is no pressure to write anything other than exactly what I want when I want.
“Unsaved Loved Ones” is a nod to a childhood steeped in fundamentalist culture, I was even an Assemblies of God pastor in my late teens and early twenties. And while I maintain a very simple Christian worldview, the running theme that drives the majority of traffic to my site relates directly to a culture that I loathe. Specifically, the fake miracle chasing, Republican Jesus contingent that just has it all wrong. Gutless cowards who would rather pervert the simplest of messages in order to force their control via politics and media instead of living by example…you know, fat preachers who are somehow experts on “sinful lifestyles”, but they never get past their fascination with homosexuality long enough to address “sins” that could potentially damage their business model.
THAT stuff pops up on here, but lately I’m having a good time getting into the Kansas City food and restaurant scene, playing around with photography, travelling, cooking, and having fun meeting people. I error on the side of posting something new only when I think I have something of value to share, and then most of the time it is prohibitively lengthy. Soooo tough shit with all of THAT, I may get around to changing the format here to make it more readable, but the content and methodology shall remain intact…….
