McLaren on progressive Christianity
His article discusses what people are leaving the church in droves. Main reason is that too many churches define themselves by who they exclude, by creating an identity in opposition to an other. You see this with denigrating gays, Muslims etc. Which is the difference between progressive and regressive religion. The only church I can abide these days in the Unitarian Universalist, which is liberal and inclusive and champions gay rights, for one.McClaren seems also on this side of the righteous and also seeks a religious identity based on whom we love instead of hate.
