Atheist Shares Good Lesson for Conservative Christians

Travis Bedard

Travis_Bedard_smAs I said in “3 Ways Atheists are Good for Christianity,” believers can learn a thing or two from atheists and agnostics. Yesterday, a friend shared this gem from Travis Bedard on what’s wrong with the “oppositional evangelical ethos” of Kim Davis and most of conservative Christianity. It mirrors my critique of the “us vs. them” mentality of American religion. I’ve argued elsewhere that Christianity is not incompatible with being a practicing gay or lesbian, including gay marriage. But if it was, I think Travis Bedard’s suggestion on how a Christian like Kim Davis should handle the clash of personal morals and civil institutions is much better than the course that she chose.
