I wish I knew more progressive Christians … especially ones who know and understand the following statement from blogger John Shore:
If you’re going to call yourself a Christian progressive, I would like to suggest that you step out of the sugary-sweet Waffle Zone, and instead unapologetically claim as your own these two readily comprehensible beliefs:
1. Being gay is no more an indicator of a person’s moral status than is the color of their eyes.
2. There is no such thing as hell.
By the way, the lead up writing that brings you to the two things is just awful. I enjoy John Shore, but it was as if he had a bunch of notes, he fell in love with them, and said, “It’s cool if I write a bunch of superfluous jokes that might (or might not) make delivery of this news better.
