  •  Good. I'm really glad to hear it. (9+ / 0-)

    Sometimes finding a great church home takes some leg-work. Sometimes, it even means going outside of the tradition you were raised in, or the one which you prefer.

    By the way, I would be much more concerned about intolerance in the Sunday School than I would be from the pulpit. Of course, I wouldn't put up with either, especially if I had kids.

    Because of the "mixed marriage" of my parents AND my father's parents, I was raised in my dad's congregational church. I never heard human sexuality of any kind discussed beyond pointing out that Mary was technically an unwed mother. I suspect, had I heard negative preaching and teaching, I would be even more radical in my progressive Christianity than I am today--or never had pursued a career in the church.

    But all this goes to show you it's people, not the religion, that are often at fault for hate and intolerance. When I was a teenager, I'd have told you "Christianity is tolerant and embracing" because that's all I ever knew. May it be for future generations.

    I resent that. I demand snark, and overly so -- Markos Moulitsas.
