It has been a while since I’ve posted any articles to my blog. I have a few in the works, but in the meantime, let me suggest a few articles that are worth your time:

The first is Shane L. Windmeyer’s  Dan and Me: My Coming Out as a Friend of Dan Cathy and Chick-fil-A.

Hot off the heels of recent protests for and against Chic-fil-A and their giving to certain charities, Gay-rights activist Windmeyer writes a fascinating account of his meetings with Chick-fil-A CEO, Dan Cathy.  I call this fascinating because I believe the friendship there goes beyond the cliche of “Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin” to what it actually might look like when we truly learn to respect and love those with whom we disagree.

The second is Marty Duren’s The Boy Scouts and A Few Questions.  After an announcement that the Boy Scouts of America may end their long standing rule barring homosexual leaders and members, Duren calls the evangelical outcry into question.  After all, where was the outcry over the BSA’s hiding of child molesters within its ranks?  Where is the outcry over the BSA’s promotion of good citizenship rather than the Gospel?  These questions can be asked about any of the issues of the so called Culture Wars, primarily, “Have we misinterpreted the fall of Christendom as the work of Satan, rather than considering it could be God destroying our most grand, safe, and preferred idol?”

As I said, they are worth your time.
