30. I most certainly agree
As long as there is some semblance of democratic wisdom in the church there is no way to shut down freedom of speech and action. We don't have police or police powers. We can witness against these people and groups, but our main effort is to witness in word and deed to a substantially different ethic which grows out of our faith. It doesn't help when on r/t there is a cottage industry in condemning all religion. We need ethically motivated partners who are not religious, not belligerent naysayers.
