Leading up to – and in the immediate wake of – the SCOTUS decision in support of marriage equality in all 50 states, a number of religious and faith community leaders contacted me asking, ‘how should we respond?’
Parents who love God and love their neighbors need to teach their kids the truth and stop buying the lie of “southern pride” associated with that flag.
I lament that the United States of America does not share a common memory and therefore is incapable of experiencing true community.
Maybe the greatest danger of all is that we who follow Jesus have been so concerned about whether we’ve got our position right on this that we fail to remember that there is good news. And that we share that good news not by shouting that we’re right, but by blessing what is good.
