Homosexuality:

Who are Christians to pick on homosexuality, when they struggle with gossip and selfishness?

http://jordantong.files.wordpress.com/2012/09/sexual-revolution-booklet.pdf

[Are those the only sins — gossip and selfishness — with which Christians struggle?  What about the same sin of lust, only directed towards ineligible members of the opposite sex rather than ineligible members of the same sex?  Did you know the numbers of professing evangelicals viewing online pornography (including women, btw) are essentially the same as unbelievers?  What about the sin of gluttony (displayed as obesity)?  Have you looked at many of the people in the Christian pews?  What about the sins of self righteousness, harshness, bitterness, unforgiveness…?  Are Christians supposedly above and beyond them?]

and…

[Evangelicals have been] complicit, even if ignorantly and passively so, in the cultural embrace of the disease conceptualization of homosexuality.  [They] off-loaded responsibility for the articulation of a thoughtful, caring, theologically rich, and pastorally sensitive understanding of sexual brokenness grounded in [their] various religious traditions by conceptualizing homosexuality as a disease, and so we were unprepared for the vacuum created by that explanation’s timely demise [in the broader, more secular culture].  The best ecclesiastical, professional, legal, and social policy will be founded not on falsehoods or grotesque and indefensible simplifications [about homosexuality] but on a clearheaded grasp of reality in all its complexities, as well as on a humble recognition of all that we do not know.

… the new evangelical environmentalism often assumes a conflict between prosperity and environmental quality.  Evangelical environmentalists, therefore, frequently advocate political constraints on consumption and production—constraints that often needlessly increase human suffering, or at least impose on others purportedly moral convictions that have no solid basis in Scripture (Colossians 2:8–23;Romans 14).
