This is a fantastic essay because it’s completely true. It’s true when it says
In the past, many Christians treated gays cruelly. Sadly, some still do. Christians must repent of this ugly legacy and condemn anti-gay hatred when it emerges. This is basic obedience to the Bible, which tells us that every human being, however broken we all are, is created in the image of God.
And it’s equally true when it says
I strongly reject the oft-heard accusations from the Left that opposition to whatever identity-politics goal it pursues can only be based in hate. It’s a crude and illiberal attempt to suppress dissent.
And when it says
Waving a blood-soaked rainbow flag to rally anti-Christian scapegoating for political advantage is repulsive and dangerous. But to holy warriors, restraint looks like cowardice and acknowledging moral complexity denies the narcotic pleasures of ardent purity.
Go read it all. It’s brief and even those with tiny attention spans should be able to comprehend the whole.
