Why Support This Ministry
This Ministry is no less vital now than it was in 1983 when Sister Flirtatious Romanovsky of Middlesex took their vows (as Sister Flagellation of Forbidden Fruit) to the Toronto Order of Perpetual Indulgence to uphold the Spirit of Stonewall, the Destruction of the Closet, and the Celebration of the Body, which bourgeois society has banished to the Valley of Shame as well as consecrating themselves “to the delights of sensual and sexual liberation.”
The precise vows taken by members of the various international Orders of Perpetual Indulgence vary, but all are founded on a commitment to spread joy, fight stigmatic guilt, and offer aid to our local communities. As noted on the Home Page, RubberChickenMinistries.org is a digital ministry of Joy, Kindness and Love. RCM doesn’t hold regularly-scheduled services IRL, and so isn’t burdened with the costs of a physical chapel. Sister Flirt’s online presence is a modern equivalent to the ‘street ministry’ of previous centuries.
Brian (Sister Flirt’s mundane persona) now has limited ability (see this 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.
How To Support My Ministry
Net proceeds from the following items supports my work. By not using a crowd-funding web-site I can provide high-value items starting at under US$20. I also earn a small fee for purchases from our Reading List. The footers of each page here include a link to my Amazon Wish List, as well as a ‘Buy me a coffee’ (donate $3) button.
Tarot and Oracle Card Readings:
Have you lost touch with your inner voice, or do you have too many good ideas to choose from? Perhaps you are unsure of how to move forward with your current project; how to finish it, and how to present it to the world.
I have always been a Creative; mostly involved in photography, poetry and graphic design. My world view starts from a position of queer love and acceptance. I came out as gay in 1978; self-identifying as queer for almost two decades. Introduced to the Tarot by my partner in 1980; together with our roommate we studied cards and other divination tools. I have offered readings to friends for almost 40 years. More information on my spiritual background and experience is on my Biography page.
