RubberChickenMinistries.org (RCM) is a digital, queer, non-theist, spiritual humanist ministry of Joy, Kindness and Love.
We recognize gods as allegorical representations of a spiritual reality that is neither quantifiable by, nor reducible to, a modern scientific approach.
Many LGBT and Queer folks have an understandable and justified hesitation to be involved in any
organi– er, institutional religion. Many decide that there can not possibly be a god or gods- or none worthy of worship. And yet, whether because of a “mid-life crisis“, a vague sense that there is something, or a deeply mystical personal experience, the time has come to consider some sort of spiritual life.
“Religion is all about answers- spirituality is about questions.” RCM doesn’t have all the answers; our goal is to help you ask the right questions.
Our Founder: Brian Gryphon (Sister Flirtatious Romanovsky of Middlesex)
Sister Flirt was accepted into the Toronto Order of Perpetual Indulgence (TOPI) as a Fully Professed Sister in 1983 as Sister Flagellation of Forbidden Fruit. Brian Gryphon, Sister Flirt’s mundane persona, is a queer Blogger, Card Reader, Designer, Kinkster, Photographer and Poet. A third generation bi-national Can-American from ON, presently living in OH.
Brian was baptized in the United Church of Canada as an infant and again in The Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto as an adult. He is ordained in the world–wide congregation of Universal Life Church Ministers, licensed to perform weddings in Ohio and available to bless queer unions or other events of personal significance. Read his full biography in his blog.
RCM does not hold regularly-scheduled services and Brian does not deliver sermons or lectures on a regular basis. He does offer blog posts that touch on various aspects of living queer in this modern world. Most particularly, posts in the LGBTiTQQ2S category and the Politics And More category in his blog.
Brian now has limited ability (see his blog post for more) to earn funds through traditional or self-employment to fund this work, as he had done in decades past. And he is still a few years shy of qualifying for whatever retirement benefits he is entitled to from the US and Canadian pension systems.
