Sorry for the audio quality, I recently purchased a legitimate Skype recording software to address issues with my current recording software. The show opens up with a good hour of Christian related discussion related to Ephesians! Cosmic Egalitarianism is worlds different from Cultural Marxism and I was recently triggered by a Pastor’s false sermon of diversity. How do we have a peaceful ordered nation, nevermind a Christian nation, if we have people like this blowing weddings?

Triggering News of the Week: How a Lesbian New Yorker Priest can help you find God!
Comment of the Year:
This is such a powerful and deeply nuanced article, and yet so many of the comments here keep coming back to the same old arguments about the inherent nuttiness of believing in fairy tales and the Daddy in the Sky.
Rev. Eldman is a lesbian priest in the Episcopalian church. Surely anyone can infer from that that not all Christians believe the Bible to be the infallible word of God. Progressive Christians believe ourselves free to use our hearts – and our minds – to use the Bible as one of many human tools to guide us on our spiritual journey, without getting bogged down in a literal understanding and mindless obedience to rules written 3000 years ago.
Further, should you ever spend time reading a book by a liberal or mystical Christian, or engage in a deep conversation with one, you will find that when we speak of God, liberal Christians may mean anything from a Creator, to a higher consciousness, to a mysterious, sensed transcendence, to the force of love, the ground of being, a felt presence both omnipresent and imminent……and everyone I’ve talked to, including myself, are ok with the mystery of it all, experiencing the divine without having to define it or impose our understanding – or lack of it – on others.
Same goes for Jesus. I’ve heard my Christian friends refer to Jesus as a great teacher, a prophet, the Son of God, a rebel, a myth, “I don’t really know but I want to be like him”, and the resurrection as everything from a physical rebirth to a metaphor for the power of love.
What seems to connect progressive Christians is values – values of compassion, social justice, the search for meaning, service to others – the desire for a journey of transformation. And many, many of us are acting as individuals and within organizations to fight against the fear and hatred that a fundamentalist understanding of religion brings into this world. Obama, for example. We are not giving credence to their worldview – we are standing against it and offering an alternative.
