Some Christian communities in America practice prejudice like dogma. It’s an ugly and reprehensible reality, but also one that is uniquely frustrating for progressive Christians like myself.
What I learned from my time at the border
“Conservative Christians—they want to stand with Jesus—and so do progressive Christians, and this is the good news of all this. It means we have to stand with each other as well. So the question then becomes, not only how we talk to ourselves about the Jesus, but how do we talk to each other.”
“Voters don’t need you to be like them for them to vote for you, but voters do want you to like them if you’re going to ask them to vote for you.”
