The gift of opposition

John Ortberg has long been a fave writer and teacher. Great wit. Here's a short article at CT that talks about opposition in churches.

I especially love the "deacons vote for your speedy recovery 13-12" comment...

Christian "PC" might be even worse than the worldly kind...

Okay, so somehow this is okay? It seems that the American Family Association has software technology on it's website that scans press releases and then changes certain words to be more in line with their version of "christian" values. For example, they replace the word "gay" with "homosexual", which I guess is perceived to be more biblical somehow.

So you can imagine the headlines and stories during the Olympic trials this week when sprinter Tyson Gay was running. Okay, so don't imagine--here's a site with the list. (Thanks TIA)
