Great Quote

"It has long struck me that the same mainline church members who pass resolutions on gay marriage and propose solutions to conflict in the Middle East suddenly shrink in silence on the subject of their faith, and they do this--here's the irony--so they won't offend anyone. For too long, our noble impulses toward tolerance and inclusivity have turned us into spiritual illiterates who, being out of practice, have forgotten how to speak the words of our faith."
- Lillian Daniel, senior minister of First Congregatonal Church of Glen Ellyn, Illinois, from an essay in The Christian Century

That is a great quote. That should be a wake-up call for Christians...especially those who dwell in the public political arena.
