A Spirit of Change?

by Tom Aageson | December 2013

The September-October 2013 issue is quite amazing. From Pope Francis to renewed seminaries, the editorial selection of authors and articles are focused on justice and poverty. However, Jim Wallis’ column “Equal Protection—for All” seems disconnected from the issue, spending two-thirds on marriage equality and only a third on the destruction of the Voting Rights Act. Which will change our country more?

Sojourners Comment Community Covenant

I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Sojourners online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree, even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)

I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)

I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)

I will hold others accountable by clicking "report" on comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)

I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Sojourners staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments. (Proverbs 18:7)
