“Sometimes reality isn’t reality, it’s just volume.
The loudest people get to write the story that everyone hears, the one they come to believe is the only story. In this way, they get to define what is true for those looking on, who may not hear anything else…
Right now there is a story being written about Christians… that is becoming the singular story…
But that is not our story.
There is another story.
There is a different kind of Christian here.
We are such people.
We are Christians who have no tolerance for prejudice that denies the inherent worth of a human being based on their identity or gender or pigmentation or orientation or land of origin or faith tradition…
You may not realize such Christians still exist anymore, in fact on many days we begin to feel as though we are a terribly endangered species too… Make no mistake though, we number in the millions and we are as grieved as you are by those using God to do damage to the poor and the vulnerable—and we are committed to pushing back against it.”
