Christmas Present: Radical Inclusion

Posted by – December 25, 2011

This letter from local clergy in Appleton is pretty much the best Christmas present I didn’t even imagine getting:

Jesus not only preached about but a lived a message of radical inclusion. He saw God’s realm as including everyone — and especially those who were despised or downtrodden or oppressed.

That’s why we and many other Christians believe that our values are best expressed when all people and all families are treated with fairness and loving support.

It was written in response to a letter from Appleton Taxpayers United which appeared a few weeks ago, which I won’t honor by quoting. It’s lovely to read Christians who sound like Christians.

    What a pleasant surprise! It’s definitely one of the reasons I hate to see the LGBT community position themselves in opposition to religion. There are so many positive underlying messages that the Christian majority in this country could well become our allies with a little time and education. Fingers crossed.
