Dave Faulkner's post on Big Circumstance today is one of those.
In 'An Appeal to Both Sides of the Christian Debate about Gay Marriage' he appeals for the exercise of Christian love and respect between those of opposing opinions. He cites several areas where Christians need to listen to each other:
Like him I have been appalled by some of the sloppy thinking and wrong facts in certain petitions. Like him my views on the sexuality debate have changed from ten years ago, but are still rather confused, so I too need to work hard on studying and listening more.
It was James Jones, the Bishop of Liverpool who (quoting the Dean of Liverpool?) used the phrase 'diversity without enmity' in a 2010 address. He said that diversity without enmity
"provides a safe and a spiritually and emotionally healthy place for Christians of differing convictions to discern the will of God for our lives."
I believe God has unconditional love for all people. We can't as the body of Christ discern God's will for our lives while refusing to listen to differing opinions as we hurl slogans against each other.
