Speaks volumes, I think. And it leads me to believe that the fundies know/understand something that Marin’s water-carriers in the gay Christian community don’t. Guess who else speaks highly of Andrew Marin in this report? Mark Yarhouse!
The rhetoric is so nice. Unfortunately, all he seems to be telling Fundamentalist Christians is that they should try to stop hurting people, which is of course good, in theory. But where is the message about actually affirming the dignity of gay people, our lives, and our equality?
As far as I can see, the jury is still out on whether or not Andrew Marin is a force for good or evil. Hopefully that question will be answered satisfactorily at some point. Until then, I would advise taking everything he says with a full shaker of salt.
