Comments: opinion

The Washington Post article is, in my view, poor because +Marc doesn't explain that many of us do believe that inclusion is an imperative of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. That Gospel calls for radical love and justice. And Jesus clearly commanded us not to judge.

He does explain that we believe in continuing revelation, an important point. But he sounds trite when he refers to "culture" without noting strongly enough that a big part of that culture, in our moral decisions, has been driven by the Civil Rights Movement. That movement was theological, moral, and powerful. And it has yet to come to completion.

MacCullough's wonderful video brings light on the largely unrealized huge leap in centralization of the Roman Catholic Church that had to been in reaction to the French Revolution, both actions seemingly to the detriment of what remains in France today, cathedrals bereft of the once-magnificent choir schools, that are full of wanting tourists, pilgrims and the faithful thirsting for so much more. And the Anglicans? We've kept our decentralization (along with it's messiness), and the revolution spared the churches (at least politically) in England, and the result seems to be that the choir schools spared, along with a wonderful sense of realizing that there's more that we don't know about God, and no dogma to pretend otherwise. Excellent video.
