Outing the Bible
"When I talk about being inclusive, they still think I'm
talking about racial inclusion. Most of the folks on a
Sunday morning are there to have their own biblical
understanding told back to them. ... 'Make it somehow
going to the grocery store on Thursday afternoon, and
I will be very happy.' That's what 'connecting it to my
life' means. ... They don't want to be transformed.
They want a faith that tells them they are okay."
