Part of my job is to be aware of, and keep a close eye on everything that is going on around the country within GLBT circles as well as within conservative circles. Because of this I am signed up to a lot of listservs from very well known, very polarizing organizations on both ends of the spectrum. With that in mind I’ve noticed a specific trend recently in the listserv emails:
Each community is pleading, and strongly urging their people to get involved to win the culture war against the other community.
Bridge builders want to end the culture war in peaceful and productive ways through eternal principles that draw us to God, and to each other.
Dime-a-dozen culture warriors want to win the culture war by turning to external, socially constructed tools for validation and legitimization within mainstream circles [mainstream secular and mainstream religious].
Which place do you find yourself in this culture war? And which place do you see yourself needing to be, and why?
