Q: How many politically correct people does it take to change a light bulb? A: That's not funny!!
Jesus met people with mercy and then called them to radical repentance. Recently in church we read about a terrible sinner who climbed a tree to see Jesus. Jesus was kind and accepting of the man, and inspired him to radical change of his behavior. "For the Son of Man came to seek out the lost." (quoting from memory; don't shoot me if I get a word wrong).
It is not that we are special; it is that America is special. We have been given a great gift, and as my Boss famously said, "From everyone to whom much has been given, much will be required"
I joined the NRA online. They have no idea what color I am.
We need to do a better job promoting a vision of human dignity (so lost now) and demonstrating how a nobler approach to human sexuality will serve that dignity. Insulting people will not serve that.
We need to get better at making the case that the way we live out our sexuality and present it to the world is a matter of human dignity. I don't think we have been very effective, while the other side has been hugely effective.

"They are also less likely to join neighborhood groups, including neighborhood watches to keep an eye out for crime." Given recent history, how willing are people going to be to volunteer for neighborhood watches at all?
