If the Christian community cannot walk this line of piety and discernment, it will find itself upholding a theology that condemns everyone, without calling into question whether the church is building community or destroying it.
Christians pretending that there’s a separation of Church and state is par for the course, but Christians choosing to bash other religions in an effort to discredit them while at the same time sensationalizing themselves is particularly wild.
There is one litany that this nation knows all too well, a litany we often choose to ignore, only paying attention to it when forced. It is one that some may not even know exists, and one that others are all too familiar with.
Well, this is “next time”…. and “the church” is still standing on the wrong side of history.
