If You’re Selling Scorn for Conservative Christians, the Market is Hot

Timothy Dalrymple at Patheos examines “the ways in which progressive Christians talk about conservative Christians.” He argues that progressive Christians are doing a disservice to themselves when they scorn conservative Christians. Heated rhetoric, he writes, only emphasizes stereotypes that hurt the entire Christian “church and its witnesses.” Dalrymple writes, “I’ve seen a lot of young, progressive evangelicals denouncing and caricaturing their conservative brethren for their “culture war” concerns … If we truly care for the public witness of the church, then we (liberal and conservative) need to stop slandering and caricaturing the other half of the church.”
