This article is a few years old but makes interesting reading, particularly given it’s from a member of the clergy.
It also echos a lot of what I feel about extremist Christians, of the sort often described as the American Christian Right.
Anyone who uses a belief in Christianity to support intollerance or hate is missing the entire point and looses the right to call themselves Christians IMHO. Not that I would stop them doing what they do (that would be intollerance in itself) just… not in my name please.
I’m not alone in being worried by this, at work the other day someone put up a polite note describing the other side of the story. I thought it was nicely written. However it was torn down not long after.
