Comment on When White Male Aggression Becomes a God Term by DS Leiter http://assertivespirituality.com/2021/03/20/when-white-male-aggression-becomes-a-god-term/#comment-19277 Sat, 27 Mar 2021 20:09:21 +0000 http://assertivespirituality.com/?p=1205#comment-19277 In reply to Clay Passick.

Read Jesus and John Wayne. It points out that there’s a very close tie between white Evangelical leaders and the training in the military–but most of the white Evangelical male leaders pushing this stuff specifically are not in those occupations and did not go to war.

Military, policeman (to a certain extent) drug enforcement officers etc. The ones that are hopefully protecting us from the “bad guys”. I am thinking they probably do that fairly well but at some point they come back to society and are now faced with a whole different set of circumstances. How to unlearn behavior that you have been trained and needed for 5, 10, 20 years. Not that this is all of the “John Waynes” by any stretch .

Comment on When Christian Nice Gets Mean in Minimizing Racism by Alisa Dotson http://assertivespirituality.com/2020/06/06/christian-nice-mean-minimizing-racism/#comment-18751 Sun, 07 Feb 2021 22:04:35 +0000 http://assertivespirituality.com/?p=1066#comment-18751 The best that I have seen about the effort to “avoid conflict”. No pulling punches. I get it because sometimes I just don’t want to “stir up stuff”. Now I get where that attitude (to put off the “good trouble”) comes from. Lord, help us all.

Comment on Evangelicalism, Militant (White) Masculinity, and the “Threat” of Assertive Spirituality by Robert Olhsson http://assertivespirituality.com/2021/01/31/evangelicalism-militant-masculinity-threat-assertive-spirituality/#comment-18605 Mon, 01 Feb 2021 01:14:01 +0000 http://assertivespirituality.com/?p=1184#comment-18605 This takes us right back to the Golden Calf in Exodus and the basic problem with false prophets. It’s all painfully predictable because it was predicted over and over.
America got lost in the ego trip “It can’t happen here.”

Comment on “Not My Christianity”?: Moving Toward Healthier Responses to the Attempted Coup by Sylvia Holmes http://assertivespirituality.com/2021/01/09/not-my-christianity-attempted-coup-responses/#comment-18462 Sat, 23 Jan 2021 01:56:15 +0000 http://assertivespirituality.com/?p=1176#comment-18462 I have been dislocated from my church during a move; reading this by chance, is a tremendous blessing. I had been shunned for feeling similar perspectives; by some nice Christian dear friends. Looking forward to joining in this deeper thinking & reading broader perspectives.

Yes, agreed. Also much different from being peacekeepers. I recommend searching the site back to read some of the early posts and especially the series on the toxic sides of “Christian nice.” Thanks so much for your thoughtful comment! Sincerely, DS Leiter, Founder, Assertive Spirituality

I think it goes much beyond being a non-involved pacifist as my tradition taught.

Hi Bernie! Sorry for the delay–if you email me at assertivespirituality @ gmail I’ll do my best to re-send. Did the final welcome email get stuck in your spam folder, though? Might want to search back through the emails we sent you. I’m sorry to hear you haven’t gotten to read it! Cheers, DS Leiter, Founder, Assertive Spirituality

If I need too sign up some other way please let me know. Thanks.
