Mr. Moore, a 42-year-old political independent and theologian who heads the convention's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, says it is time to tone down the rhetoric and pull back from the political fray, given what he calls a "visceral recoil" among younger evangelicals to the culture wars.

That's adorable.

They should do one of those AT&T ad lib commercials with leaders of different churches.

"What's better, being co-opted by the political process or Christianity thriving when it distinguishes itself from outside culture?"

"Christianity thriving!"

"What would you do with all that thriving Christianity?"

"I'd buy a change-o machine so I could turn younger evangelicals into culture warriors."

LOL.

I'm trying to think of one to fit the werewolf pattern.  "Cause then you'll get bitten by a liberal and be all like 'sodomy sodomy sodomy.'"

This guy better be careful. If he starts applying logic and reason too often he's going to find himself drowning in self doubt.

Gee, some church leaders are learning that mixing politics with religion turns off a good portion of educated young people.

WHO KNEW?

This is the most useful thing an Evangelical has done since convincing kids to not have sex--kids who believe that hummers don't count as sex.

In the future, linked fark articles will consist of a single word and that word will be nope. The threads will be bitterly divided on the subject.

There are a lot of movements that only work as a counter-culture against a large faceless overwhelming enemy. If they were actually in charge without their boogeyman to blame everything on, it all falls apart.


That said, there are genuinely marginalized people and genuine counter-cultural movements with merit/justification.

What a visceral recoil might look like.

I always eventually pull out...after I come in.

Wether Subby meant it or not.... The "attracting young members" gag was a nice touch.

So, you're saying that you want to stop preaching loudly against popular sins so that people will be more likely to visit your church, and once they start attending your church they will donate enough money that you can buy that BMW you wanted, er, I mean, you can teach them a properly orthodox hermeneutic that will convince them that popular sins are still sinful.

Sure, I guess some people might not see through that...

Personally I would have thrown in something about the church hoping to see new members coming. But thats just me.

The original Wall Street Journal article here, with helpful graphs showing the fail of the Southern Baptist Church -- even among its own young people.

Warning: may be paywalled.

Ignore previous non-link since Fark threw it away.  But a search of wsj.com for "Moore" will find it.
