    It's always so gratifying to be lumped in with every other evangelical out there when so many of us are not the same.

    But paint us all with the same brush, it's done all the time. We're used to it by now.

    When I first made the decision not to have a baby, in 2008, I did it because I couldn’t imagine bringing another human into a world already so overheated and overcrowded. I didn’t know anyone like me at the time. But in the intervening decade, the world’s climate change problem has escalated to a crisis, and people across the world are grappling with the question of whether to have children in such uncertain times. In February, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez broke Instagram when she so much as raised the question. A few weeks later, Utah Sen. Mike Lee, on the opposite end of the spectrum, argued on the Senate floor that the solution to climate change is to “fall in love, get married, and have some kids.” Meanwhile, in the UK, environmental activist Blythe Pepino launched BirthStrike, a social media–focused movement that questions having children in the face of ecological crisis.

    Look at that, I can paint any group, I dislike as ‘living in fear.’

    Isn't it wonderful how Chuck drives up in a bus, and ox does everything he can to shove his fellow Christians underneath?

    Such synergy between a believer and non-believer warms the heart.

    By your own logic you are shoving your own fellow Christian, Ox, underneath the bus and you have done so repeatedly. But, once again, it seems you have no problem with double standards.

    And, you may have noticed the part I qoted in the opening post was promoting Christian values and ways of life and only challenged whether people acted accordingly. But, it seems, family separation and hostility towards the stranger is so integral to your identity that you feel it challenges your faith if anyone says it is wrong even if it is a "fellow Christian". And where was your support for the "assumption" he was pro homosexual practice. Do you have anything to support it?

    Your dishonesty in cutting quotes and not answering what was actually said is duly noted.

    And here is what you left out:

    Quote Originally Posted by Charles View Post

    "What's striking here is that evangelicals have in almost every circumstance where there's some kind of change in the culture, have not responded with hospitality to the stranger, with grace, with hope, with the idea that people who are different from them have been created in the image of God and have that dignity and worth. Instead they have built their walls and protected themselves against people they fear Fear. [It's] an inherent contradiction for anyone who takes the Bible seriously.
    If all you can get from this is ideas about homosexuality you are really narrow minded. And really concerned to not adress what he is actually saying.

    Funny how quoting an Evangelical challenging your double standards makes me and anti-Christian bigot. You must live in a very simplified world...
