It Is Time for Non-Fundamentalist Christian Denominations to Speak Out. [View all]

There has long been a tendency for more liberal Christian denominations to avoid criticism of other denominations' positions about things. Many Christian denominations, for example, have no problem with women exercising reproductive choice, including abortion. Many denominations also do not have a problem with LGBTQ+ relationships.

However, when other Christian denominations worked to make such things illegal, there was a hesitancy to speak out against those efforts. So, no "Christian" voices were heard opposing such regressive and unfair rules.

The time for that has ended. It is time for open disagreement with fundamentalist denominations and denominations so locked into past dogma. When such groups attempt to restrict the rights of entire classes of people, Christian denominations who do not support such restrictions need to speak out and to speak out loudly.

Some do, but most do not. All need to speak out, and demonstrate that such restrictive nonsense is not a "Christian" thing, but something only some Christians believe.

It is past time.
