Compassion is Complicated

"I am left feeling very tired and wondering how much longer any space will be held open on this subject for genuine nuance and dialogue, or if perhaps that space has closed and it is only now becoming apparent to me. I am left wondering if anyone who holds any position with respect to this situation and the underlying questions about the relationship between the LGBTQ community & the church is willing to practice the basic charity of seeking to understand their opponent's argument at its best, even if their opponent fails to articulate it that way (intentionally or not)." 

If you want to cling tightly to your freedom to believe something about other people, you're holding tightly to a form of enslavement, in captivity to the fiction that my own perspective is the best arbiter of truth about what are in reality complex and varied circumstances.
