Just Because We Look Cool Doesn't Mean We Are
"Looking Cool" cartoon by nakedpastor David Hayward
The Catholic Church flip-flopped on its statement
Brian Houston of Hillsong Church waffled on his statement
There's a lot of talk about being relevant. There's lots of talk about looking cool.
Just because we look cool it doesn't mean we are.
Just because we talk about being relevant it doesn't mean we are.
Just because we "have a lot of gays" it doesn't mean they're free from discrimination.
There is a line that separates discrimination from affirmation. We can talk and progress¬†while on the discrimination side until the cows come home. We can nudge up as close as possible to that line, but we will still be on the side of injustice.
Justice doesn't begin until that line is crossed.
