|OT: An Evangelical's Retort To The Religious Right.
||[Jun. 23rd, 2006|12:12 pm]
Normally, I do not make public comments on religion. I belong to a faith that forbids proseltyzation, and I am of the personal opinion that unless I ask you, I'm not really interested in your spiritual life or lack of same. That having been said...I found this article on Fark. It initially caught my eye because I used to live in Wheaton, IL. as a child, and experienced directly much of the mindset the author cites. (As an aside, Wheaton College is considered one of the nation's premier Evangelical institutions.)
Please read this article slowly and carefully. Think about it before you react. I did, and I am glad to have done so. While I do not necessarily agree with the all of the author's points, I do agree with his main thesis, and would STRONGLY urge all of you who find yourself also in agreement to reproduce the link, and add your own opinions and arguments. I will not do so here, so as not to detract from the message. Thank you, both of you (Heh.) for you kind and considerate attention.
