The larger Christian community doesn't care and the clergy will do whatever it takes to get butts in the seats.

I sort of feel sorry for people who think that Christians are obsessed with their lives because most people are concerned with their own households and that's what they are basing their voting power upon...it really has nothing to do with the next guy.

It's not a unique position, but I'm glad to see that this particular church is putting it out there.

I've seen many such signs, echoing similar sentiments, outside churches in Canada. But generally speaking, Canuck churches are more liberal and welcoming to "others" than those in the US of A.

Your churches are probably more akin to many in the NY metro area, Philly, New England, other places in the northeast. And probably the Pacific northwest, too, although I haven't been there.

Clackamas Oregon is hardly the heart of the Bible Belt. It might as well be a branch of San Francisco's Church of the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence as far as bible belters are concerned.

is this an example of the social reform wave that is 'sweeping' through the church? it is easy to be cynical and say (as atheists might of the Anglican Church embracing, almost, same sex marriage, when they might have held out) that bums on seats, rather than religious principles, is what really matters to them,. But I would prefer not to judge and just see it as a positive step forward all round, and the sort of church a secular society can happily live with, if not actually attend, except for the occasional organ recital.

Meh, we have a 'United Church of Christ' congregation here in OKC. They are much the same. Their minister is a pretty high profile liberal in town. They were even able to get their services on radio a while back (before streaming) which was amazing in this market. For a while he/they were a topic of conversation.

From what I can tell.............. over the years, the typical "Christian" churches around here have just kind of gotten used to them/him.

So churches can do some good in their messaging. Bet you dollars to donuts they are not in the south or Baptist.
