"Anyone who reads my blog knows I’m not a fan of free rides, so I have a challenge for my readers.
Read Bishop Spong’s full manifesto. It shouldn’t take you more than 10 minutes.
Now here is my challenge. If you call yourself a “Christian” of any kind and you think of yourself as being supportive of LGBT issues, you should be able to agree with everything Bishop Spong said in this piece AND be willing to put those ideas into action.
It’s a high bar, but I contend that if you can’t reach it, then you aren’t there yet. If you can’t stand with Bishop Spong, then you are not fully committed to the identity of an “ally.”
Anything less than full equality is inequality. What do you support?"
