From anguish to dialogue.
Mike Andreski writes in the comments to an earlier post:
Where can a UU who is almost in agony over the election get a UU perspective on dealing with this? I would like a dialog on how we can talk to fundies and move them back to the loving side of religious dialog, using their own language.
That's a tall order! But let's talk about it. We could start with Jake's discussion, "Liberalism Reframed," or we could share sermons and other materials that have helped us find new ways to seek dialogue in our divided culture. (My own caution would be that religious liberals have very limited prospects for persuading "fundies": I would recommend finding somewhat more moderate dialogue partners first.) Let's not dwell in agony, friends: How do you engage in real dialogue with politically conservative Christians in your families, workplaces, and communities?
