Rarely do I make someone else’s blog post the point of my own, but the one I read this morning is worth it. For the record, I don’t know anything about the people who publish The Broken Telegraph. My posting praise for this one article does not consititue my endorsing anything else they have posted or will post. I simply liked this one article. I think it makes the point well that even those within the church who quietly go about the work of pushing anti-gay marriage legislation in the United States are doing damage to the church, even though they’re not out making loud, angry speeches against gays. My favorite quote from the article:
“Even those who respectfully stand against an issue that is at most a symbolic victory have contributed to the creation of unnecessary foes.”
There are many more wonderful quotes in this article. It’ll only take a few minutes to read the whole thing, and it’s worth your time, wherever you’ve landed on the isse of gay marriage.
