our god is woman

I attended a D&D Taster Campaign, where you choose a class and are thrown into an epic quest/battle at level twenty. I chose a monk and honestly I think im in love.

We ended up getting fairly far into the “Campaign” and hi-lights were

The bard singing a note so high that it blew a dragons head off (Vicious Mockary)
I walked up to a giant and flicked it in the chest and it exploded (Gods Bless the Quivering Palm)
Our cleric pulled a Wonder Woman and jumped basically straight through a motherfucker with a jumping sword slash.

All in all, it makes me want to get a proper group together and start playing for real. I’ll have to wait till I feel better though, My anxiety drained me today.

We live in a world that draws a deep distinction between fathers and mothers—there are things that fathers do and things that mothers do, and in our world they’re not the same at all.
It starts before we become parents, actually.
We do this with all men and women, and before that, boys and girls.
A sonogram, black and white and gray swirls.
It looks like old footage of a moon landing more than anything.
But in that moment, gender is spoken, or maybe a few months later in a hospital room, and then you tumble into a world of pink, pink, pink, or blue, blue, blue–forever.
That’s how people are.
We split people into pink and flowers and babies and high heels.
Or blue and bravado and machines and muscles.
But God isn’t pink or blue.
God doesn’t fit into our Game of Life pegs, tiny woman or tiny man, riding around the board in a tiny sedan.
God nurtures and protects and feeds his children, just like that mother deer in the clearing, with ferocity and power, ready to do anything for the children he loves.
God listens and draws near.
God holds and heals.
God our Mother.
God our Mother.
We know all about God our Father, and the beautiful images that go along with that idea: the strong, faithful, unshakeable love of a father.
But to only know God the Father would be like only knowing daytime but never night—to see the sunrise, but never the gentle, haunting rise of a harvest moon, low in the sky, blood red and beautiful.
To know only the Father God would be like seeing the bright, dazzling sun, but never the stars spreading across the sky like so much fairy dust.
God our Mother, reaching out to us with those hands—mother hands, strong and coursing with love, binding up wounds and soothing scrapes, holding us together, holding us safe.
God our Mother, feeding us, nourishing us, giving us what we need to grow and thrive, taking care of us in big and small ways, seeing us, knitting us back together with love and grace when we’ve been broken.
God our Mother, believing in us.
That’s what a mother does: she looks into your eyes and she says, I believe in you.
I know you.
I know you were made for great things.
A mother says, you’re not too small or too scared.
You’re not too frail or too flawed.
You’re mine.
And that’s all you need to know.
God our Mother whispers to each one of us You’re mine.
And that’s all you need to know.

Skaal: we have no idea who kidnapped your commander. But you know what? Your presence here offends us and the All-Maker. Your pals imperials - and i don’t care you’re a dunmer and have known those people for two days max - don’t respect our customs and traditions by staying together in a small fort on southern side of the island and bothering literally noone. Now you totally have to apologize for them and prove your loyalty to us by doing shitload of random tasks we aren’t able to complete ourselves. We call Imperials foolish and shortsighted but cannot for the love of our own god find a love letter lying on a pillow of a woman whose man is accused of stealing from another man and is about to be executed. Do it all and only then you can be called our friend.

Nerevarine: why should i bother tho

Skaal: no fuckin reason, you pathetic worm.

King Ferdinand's letter to the Taino-Arawak Indians

In the name of King Ferdinand and Juana, his daughter, Queen of Castile and Leon, etc., conquerors of barbarian nations, we notify you as best we  can that our Lord God Eternal created Heaven and earth and a man and woman from whom we all descend for all times and all over the world. In the 5,000 years since creation the multitude of these generations caused  men to divide and establish kingdoms in various parts of the world, among  whom God chose St. Peter as leader of mankind, regardless of their law,  sect or belief. He seated St. Peter in Rome as the best place from which  to rule the world but he allowed him to establish his seat in all parts  of the world and rule all people, whether Christians, Moors, Jews,  Gentiles or any other sect. He was named Pope, which means admirable and  greatest father, governor of all men. Those who lived at that time obeyed  St. Peter as Lord and superior King of the universe, and so did their  descendants obey his successors and so on to the end of time.

The late Pope gave these islands and mainland of the ocean and the  contents hereof to the above-mentioned King and Queen, as is certified  in writing and you may see the documents if you should so desire.  Therefore, Their Highnesses are lords and masters of this land; they were acknowledged as such when this notice was posted, and were and are being  served willingly and without resistance; then, their religious envoys  were acknowledged and obeyed without delay, and all subjects  unconditionally and of their own free will became Christians and thus  they remain. Their Highnesses received their allegiance with joy and  benignity and decreed that they be treated in this spirit like good and  loyal vassals and you are under the obligation to do the same.

Therefore, we request that you understand this text, deliberate on its  contents within a reasonable time, and recognize the Church and its  highest priest, the Pope, as rulers of the universe, and in their name  the King and Queen of Spain as rulers of this land, allowing the religious fathers to preach our holy Faith to you. You own compliance as a duty to the King and we in his name will receive you with love and charity, respecting your freedom and that of your wives and sons and your  rights of possession and we shall not compel you to baptism unless you,  informed of the Truth, wish to convert to our holy Catholic Faith as  almost all your neighbors have done in other islands, in exchange for  which Their Highnesses bestow many privileges and exemptions upon you.  Should you fail to comply, or delay maliciously in so doing, we assure  you that with the help of God we shall use force against you, declaring  war upon you from all sides and with all possible means, and we shall  bind you to the yoke of the Church and of Their Highnesses; we shall  enslave your persons, wives and sons, sell you or dispose of you as the  King sees fit; we shall seize your possessions and harm you as much as we  can as disobedient and resisting vassals.  And we declare you guilty of  resulting deaths and injuries, exempting Their Highnesses of such guilt  as well as ourselves and the gentlemen who accompany us. We hereby  request that legal signatures be af fixed to this text and pray those  present to bear witness for us, etc.

We can fully entrust ourselves to our Father’s beautiful plan for us. As we submit to the rule of our king, we also submit to God’s order.
