On Sunday, my friend Hemant Mehta posted a challenge, asking progressive Christians to show their support not only for the LGBT community, but also for equality, under the idea that our actions need to match our language.
I happily retweeted his comment, but I have noticed that whenever I (or any other progressive Christian friends) speak about something less orthodox, our faith is called into question. Not only by the more traditional evangelical set, but also by many within the atheist community.
I mentioned this to Hemant on Twitter and he thought it might be an interesting guest post for his site. So I did just that.
Head over to Hemant’s site and give it a read. And to anyone visiting from Hemant’s site, welcome! Take a look around and say hello. (And thank you, yet again, to Hemant for allowing me an opportunity to write at his site.)
