“One thing I’ve said many times is that if you always are progressive, always are conservative, then you’re probably being intellectually lazy. One way to put it is, you’ve probably outsourced your opinions to someone else, maybe the custodians of the culture. We need to think through. No group, no ideological tribe has gotten everything right. If we can’t identify those places where they’ve gone wrong, then we may repeat them, but maybe more importantly, we’re just being unfaithful as Christians and our public witnessing needs to improve.”
