The ad Sojourners won’t show… two women taking their son to church. Revolutionary stuff, it ain’t. This happens every Sunday.
We have churches in our denomination complaining that they are losing congregants and not gaining any more … their lack of welcoming atmosphere (for everyone) may be a large reason why that is.
Update: Sojourners has now put up this post re: welcoming churches and the ad.
LGBT “Welcome” Ad Rejected by Sojourners, Nation's Premier Progressive Christian Org | Politics | Religion Dispatches
you can imagine our dismay when Sojourners refused to run our ads. In a written statement, Sojourners said, “I’m afraid we’ll have to decline. Sojourners position is to avoid taking sides on this issue. In that care [sic], the decision to accept advertising may give the appearance of taking sides.”
ARGH, Sojourners, this is hella disappointing.
