Once again I have been identified as emblematic of “what is wrong with the church today”. I won’t bother linking to any of these accusations because I don’t want to encourage them.
Here’s the thing. Go to my post Unpacking and look at the reasons I put down, tediously I must say, for why I believe what I believe about homosexuality and about Scriptural authority. Then deal with my ideas in a conversation. If you want a poster-person for Liberal theology or postmodernism or the Decay of Western Civilization, there are a lot of more intelligent scholars and thinkers and bloggers than me you’ve got to deal with. But if you don’t want to seek out the best and brightest, I’m here, I’ve got a comments section I don’t moderate, and I’ve got time to respond to the best of my ability.
When I get good reasons for thinking otherwise than I do, I’ll consider them and give you my honest response, and we’ll talk back and forth, and it’ll be fun. I promise. Especially if what you’re after is a conversation, rather than someone to tear down, as if I was influential and not just blogging for an audience of a dozen people who are probably just killing time.
For those of you who do like what I write, or at least approach me with respect that I’m happy to return to you, I’ll continue to be transparent and honest in what I write, as much as I can bring myself to be, and we’ll see where it leads me. I’m as curious as anyone else.
And I promise not to blaspheme against Saint Gagnon.
