“But who prays for Satan? Who, in eighteen centuries, has had the common humanity to pray for the one sinner that needed it most?”
– Mark Twain (via flannel)
remember: jesus didn’t get crucified because he was quietly teaching folks a weird, quirky way to relate to god. nothing about your relationship with god is gonna threaten people. jesus got crucified because he taught that upsetting the system was the right thing to do. from the very beginning, prayer and faith were never the whole story of christianity; rather it is founded directly on a cornerstone of radicalism and activism.
