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   


    "The Judicial Council’s work compellingly shows that our denomination is in schism and has been for some years and if we really want to heal this schism, then (dare I say it?) we have to back up and try our best to answer basic questions. What is it, actually, that unites United Methodists? ...  If doctrines do not define church, then we don’t know our identity or mission. If we don’t know our identity and mission, we will never be able to agree on what constitutes appropriate or inappropriate behavior and we will never be able to exercise meaningful accountability."

– The Rev. Steven Rankin, in a post "Judicial Council Proves We're Already in Schism"
