"My point is a simple one, although controversial: Gretta has the right to believe what she believes or doesn't believe. She represents a growing number of Christians or people who wish to continue associating with the Christian religion and its community. Therefore, her valid voice must be allowed a place in the institution where people like her wish to gather. This whole story is so reminiscent of the Bishop Pike heresy trials that began in 1962 and should be a lesson to us. But the church is unwilling to bend at all for the millions of people like them."She has the right to believe what she wants. That's what she stands for. And I support her! Anyway, in this supportive post she's quoted as saying, "how one lives is more important than what one believes"," and it reminded me of the cartoon above that I drew back in 2010. I'll be writing and cartooning more about this important story. Why do I care about this? Because what she's standing up for is what I stand up for: your right to believe what you want to believe, as Bishop Pike said, in a way that does not offend your intellect or your conscience. Do you want space to believe what you want to believe... or even not believe? Consider joining as at The Lasting Supper!
