Church & State January 20, 2011

We’re hardly able to distinguish between what’s American and what’s Christian.
As a result, power corrupts the church and it’s goals and practices.
– Shane Claiborne
Mixing the church and state is like mixing ice cream with cow manure.
It may not do much to the manure, but it sure messes up the ice cream.

We CAN Respectfully Disagree June 11, 2010

We CAN respectfully disagree. Look at Tony and Peggy Campolo.
Tony is a well-known Baptist minister who believes that gay Christians are called to lifelong celibacy.
His wife Peggy disagrees, and supports her gay friends and their marriages.

This reminds me of reading that Arnold Schwarzenegger is a conservative, while his wife, Maria Shriver, is a liberal.

COME ON PEOPLE. We can talk about issues without getting all hostile, AND without questioning the “salvation” of those with whom we disagree.

In case you are interested, here’s more on the debate among gay Christians, and the views of Tony and Peggy Campolo, plus
a couple of essays that respectfully oppose each other.


Savior June 10, 2010

“Jesus is the only Savior, but not everybody who
is being saved by Him is aware that He is the
one who is doing the saving”

“I have three things I’d like to say today. First, while you were sleeping last night, 30,000 kids died of starvation or diseases related to malnutrition. Second, most of you don’t give a shit. What’s worse is that you’re more upset with the fact that I said shit than the fact that 30,000 kids died last night.” ~ Tony Campolo
