I've been surfing around a little, checking some of the more "liberal" church bloggers out there.
Something that stands out to me about both ends of the spectrum is that religion has a certain addictive quality when you begin to get to the extremes.
The addiction for "liberals" seems to center around "How far can I take this to make things more new and comfortable for me?" Wherease the addiciton for "conservatives" seems to be all about "How can I maintain my comfort zone and make this comfortable by not going outside the hedge I've so beautifully planted and trimmed?"
Both ends are terrible, cloistering places to be religiously.
The funny thing is, both are doing the same thing! They isolate people and cause discord. Is there a way to repair this breach? What are we doing about it?
