Unapologetic progressive. Fearless activist. Plucky liberal.

Christians for progress

Rick posted recently about his disappointment that you don’t see more progressive Christians in the media. I thought it was worth highlighting this piece about a group of Christians who are supporting Maryland’s same-sex marriage proposal.

Baptist leaders joined with Catholic leaders in Annapolis on Thursday in support of the bill before the General Assembly that allows same-sex partners to legally marry in Maryland and receive the same rights as heterosexual couples.

“The Christian church’s appreciation of the infallibility of religious freedom, its sexual theology and even the meaning of marriage have all changed over time,” said Sister Jeannine Gramick, a Maryland representative of the National Coalition of Nuns.

Good for them for realizing love isn’t a threat to anyone.
