When I was young, I used to think people could have rational discussions and disagree in civil ways.

RT @NeilShenvi@twitter.com: One danger of the corporate apology is that it puts a given individual in a position that he or she cannot occupy. I am not the representative of a holy nation-state or the high priest of God’s people...I have no biblical summons to make atonement for sin.

I think it may also be helpful to contrast the oft used accusations.

Compassion cannot be rightly given apart from truth telling.
Power cannot be rightly exercised apart from truth telling.
Compassion at the expense of truth is unrigteousness.
Power at the expense of truth is unrighteousness.

Let the reader understand.

What is 'theological liberalism'? What are some examples of liberal theologians in history? These are questions we need to ask to avoid using a label as a dismissive pejorative. These are also questions we need to ask to help some people realize which way they are sliding.

Criticism resulting from an intentionally incendiary claim sets the stage for walking the original comment back to a more reasonable position while demonizing the opposition for misrepresentation. The silence provides a perfect platform for reaffirming the initial view.

Just saw the ad that has all this perpetual outrage on social media going on..

It is almost a great commercial. The company known best for using sweatshops turns on a dime to sell product to woke folk by implying Kapernick has sacrificed everything.

Laughable, but it has worked. Now all these woke folk are staunch Nike defenders and these flag folk in perpetual outrage mode.

Honestly, it is hilarious. But it is also sad because it all plays right into irrelevant wedge issues.

Jemar Tisby exhorts people to “avoid” the authors of the Statement on Social Justice and the Gospel. Unsurprisingly, I have a few thoughts in response:

I'm just beside myself trying to understand these people who were all uppity about him working at Trader Joe's. I just do not understand that kind of culture.
