Even Rod Dreher Gets It

From Rod Dreher at the American Conservative:
We Orthodox, Catholics, and Reformed Christians can look down our noses all we like at charismatics and Evangelicals for not having a strong and systematic theology, but what good does our theological depth do us if we don’t teach our young people how to think as Christians, and how to discipline their feelings with reason?

The issue? The rising tide of ex-evangelicals who are losing a faith built on emotions over the issue of gay rights and same sex marriage. Read the letter from an ex-evangelical and Rod's poignant observations after them. Then, do what he says: forward it to every Christian leader you know.

    Mr. Dreher in NO WAY "gets it". Nor are his subsequent comments observations "poignant". They are REPUGNANT.

    He insults the letter-writer's faith, diminishing it to "Moralistic Therapeutic Deism". He uses this insult quite often to dismiss pretty much everyone who disagrees with what HE believes.

    And he certainly never uses "reason" - he's one of the most hyperbolic rightwing 'writers' in the American anti-gay media market.
