Like many people from across the theological and political spectrum, are disturbed by the religious rhetoric that is defining Christianity in the United States today: one that employs inflammatory rhetoric over civil discourse, favors easy-answers over nuanced thought and seeks political victory over the common good. This is not the Christianity that many of us live.
Many of us believe that faithful Christians - "liberal" to "conservative" - can vigorously disagree on significant social and political issues without tearing down the dignity of the other, giving up the complexities of faith or inflicting pain upon another member of the Body of Christ.
We do not want our Christian faith to be defined for us, so we are joining our voices and reclaiming the diversity of Christianity in the United States that we know exists.
We are Christianity!
