"Conservatives have found themselves being very vocal on highly moral issues. Take for instance the consistent vitriol spewed by James Dobson and Richard Land against the homosexual community. Not to mention abortion, though I am adamantly against it, one must remember the fallen world we live in and that we can work to reduce the number of abortions but it will never be abolished altogether. Though I would desperately love to see that happen, this is not a perfect world and I think it would bode much better for the evangelical church to accept that sober fact.
If that were the case, the church could concentrate more on issues of compassion, things that I am convinced consumed much of Jesus’ time. . . "
Read the rest of it. Parts, I swear, read very similarly to a draft post I was working on yesterday before I bailed. Reading it reminds me of how much we could accomplish in this country if we reached across our supposed divisions. Yes, we disagree on much, but there is much we can agree on that would make substantive improvements to the lives of people.
