Thanks for visiting. I received my M.A. in Religious Studies in 2017. We studied institutions historically, sociologically, and anthropologically. We looked at texts through the lenses of different literary theories. It was here that I obliquely encountered Marx (through Manuel Vasquez, Bruce Lincoln, and Russell McCutcheon) and ran with him. Now I enjoy reading about socialism, religion, and American history (really modern history from ~1300-present).
I had originally desired to be a professor in the humanities but discovered there were too many dolphins and not enough pond. While it would be nice to teach in some capacity, I am content to share my thoughts here while I pay back a mortgage-worth of loans.
I enjoy engaging with radical thought, because it is where I see humans play most intensely with the boundaries of human culture and animality.
If you have any questions, suggestions, complaints, or anything, e-mail me at ilostmyprayerhanky2 at the gmail. Even if you can’t stand me, bring it. I want this to be a meaningful forum, a place of intense discussion but relatively little smashing and pillaging. I will try to give an ear before I throw something to the refuse pile. Unless it’s fascism. Fuck fascism.

I’m a Lutheran pastor, but I bet you’d be surprised how much sympathy I have for what I think you’re saying. Peace and best wishes, John
Thanks for stopping by, John! I think I’m subscribed to you now. When I attempted it, I got a weird error from Scriptblocker, something about crosslisting. Anyway, if it doesn’t show that I’m subscribed, shoot me a line at ilostmyprayerhanky AT gmail.com. Thanky.
