On Being A “Liberal Fundamentalist”

Lately I've noticed that many liberal Christians do this thing where they accuse other liberal Christians of being "liberal fundamentalists." Are these accusations of "liberal fundamentalism" warranted?I'm thinking back over the times when I or a friend of mine has been called a "liberal fundamentalist:"When I asked a popular Christian blogger to stop repeatedly using a slur. When a queer friend criticized the organization NALT because of Dan Savage's (who has a history of biphobia, … [Read more...]

Feeling the world’s brokenness…

Do you ever feel the brokenness of the world?Do you ever hurt with the rest of humanity?Or groan with creation as it waits for redemption?Sometimes, in our individualist, self-centered society, we forgot the bigger picture. We forget that we are part of creation.

Love may Win, but Environment Loses (via Images and Words)

My boyfriend decided to judge Rob Bell before reading his book. Check out his blog for yet another review of Love Wins (from a perspective that you probably haven't heard yet). I may be biased, but I think it's pretty dang funny. Garbage, utter garbage. And I say garbage with utter contempt, because as a proud recycling citizen of the U.S., I find contempt in garbage. And I find nothing but garbage in Rob Bell's book, Love Wins. The book has gained quite the controversy in conservative … [Read more...]
