Another thought on this issue--the idea of selflessness or denying self should be the stock and trade of Christians no matter the domain. At its very worst a "big hair" evangelist living a fiscally indulgent life while condemning homosexual people, makes all of us look stupid as Christians. If selflessness is demonstrated across the board and the rallying cry of the church is a Jesus-like commitment to universal selflessness, the issues related to sexuality fine their proper place in the discourse. Without that we just look like "fag-haters" and religious politicians.

Been emailing with a friend about all the homosexuality focus in the media right now. I thought this comment from him was well put as it pertains to perceptions of Christians amidst the broader cultural discussion. We would be wise to keep these things in mind. It speaks more broadly to discipleship that should be flowing from our local churches and into the culture at large.
