This is a post that i wrote for The Prayerful Queer, a multi-religious queer blog my friend R and her friend W started. I’m super super super excited about the blog, and also quite excited about this post. It gave me an opportunity to work out some things I’ve been percolating on for a long time now, especially the question: What if I can’t forgive?
The post was written to start off a series at The Prayerful Queer, and R and W both wrote their own responses to my question. You can see their responses here and here. I really, really recommend them. It is a well-nuanced conversation on the boundaries of forgiveness.
