Maybe I’m just anal retentive but I think that the term
“progressive” is a lot like the term “evangelical.” It’s just an easy
way for folks to compartmentalize others (and maybe even themselves)
into easy categories without the subsequent (and necessary) process of
dealing with actual beliefs and practices. I really do agree with
Mollie that these terms have little substantive meaning. These days I’m
uncomfortable calling myself either “progressive” or “evangelical”
because neither of these terms adequately describes what it means for
me to be a Christian person in American society. And, honestly, since
the American political scene is more about deception, wordplay and
power, I’ve got little confidence that these terms can have any
substantive meaning within the public square in the future.
