Voices of Faith Speak Out: bullying is a theological issue

Baptist minister Cody Sanders writes
The simplistic, black and white lines that are drawn between conceptions of good and evil make it all-too-easy to apply these dualisms to groups of people. When theologies leave no room for ambiguity, mystery and uncertainty, it becomes very easy to identify an ‘us’ (good, heterosexual) versus a ‘them’ (evil, gay). ....How long will we continue to limit and qualify our messages of acceptance, inclusion and embrace for the most vulnerable in order to maintain the comfort of those in our communities of faith who are well-served by the status quo?

As my bro often says, religion tries hard to make you hate it.
