Why are so many Christians, which has a central message that is arguably the most Progressive in the world, so opposed to the Progressive movement and all it stands for? This predates gay marriage, it goes back to resistance even to The Great Society.
When I see Christianity I see a faith that is based on care for its fellow man, and wants a system, or a government to “rest upon His shoulders”. I have always interpreted that as a system where people’s needs are met, whether they are physical, emotional, or spiritual. Yet, the marriage of Evangelicals to some of the harsher positions of the Conservative Right at times runs at odds with the tenets of Christianity. I don’t pass judgement, and I count myself as a Christian, who sometimes has a crisis of conscience. What do you say?
