Christian discrimination

Christians in the U.S. have faced many divisive debates over discrimination for centuries. Typically, each conflict has taken many decades to reach a compromise. Consider the history of slavery, racial segregation, allowing profoundly deaf couples to marry, women voting, the roles of women, interracial marriage, and the latest: the LGBT community. Most of these have been resolved. It is worth noting that all have been resolved in the direction of equal rights for all persons. I have no doubt but that the current conflict over transgender individuals will be resolved in favor of acceptance and equality. I sometimes wonder which will be the next group to be targeted after the attacks on transgender persons wind down in favor of acceptance.

Notable Quotes   


   Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove "When Jesus said, 'I have come that they might have life, and have it more abundantly' in John 10:10, he wasn’t thinking about a victory for those who have used religion to fight back against the gains of the civil rights movement. Jesus was inviting all of us to work together for the vision at the heart of that movement — a beloved community where all people created in God’s image can thrive."

– Jonathan Wilson-Hartgrove, writing in "The Evangelical Case Against Judge Kavanaugh" in the Sept. 3 New York Times.
