What a strange country we live in; we get selectively worked up on whatever issues the media decides to work us into a frenzy over while other topics are virtually ignored. I hadn’t intended on contributing to the frenzy until I read Andrew Marin’s blog post. He’s the author of Love is an Orientation, an incredible book on elevating the conversation with the LGBT community. You can read his full post here; it’s worth clicking through to. Here’s a highlight that jumped out at me:
The main question today must be how we relate to each other with strongly held convictions, rather than continually try to force everyone into theological, social or political alignment. That will never work, as highlighted by the last three days.
Part of what I appreciate about his thoughts are his critiques for both sides of the argument and the challenge we face of moving beyond that.
