SoFiA member Jim Norman has alerted us to a thought-provoking article by Rita Nakashima Brock on the website of The Centre for Progressive Christianity. It’s titled ‘We Might Need the End of Progressive Christianity’ and, being written by an ‘insider’, pulls no punches. For instance:
Most progressive Christians don't even know the strand of their own tradition well enough to have a clue about the vast and profound cultural differences involved in encountering another religion. Instead, they like to dabble in an eclectic "spirituality." This same tolerance applies to their view of race: side-by-side, respectful, and profoundly unintegrated and unengaged, so they tend to be kindly and paternalistic or admiring and fawning.
Can progressive Christians escape the ‘woolly-thinker’ label for so long associated with religious liberalism and find a way forward?
Yes! Its easy. Just grow up and become an atheist.
