Gays and Christians are Western
We need to heal the "culture wars" between Christians and secular - progressives. When the absolutes of "sin" and "rights" get invoked, we can find no common ground; we are divided and weaker as a nation. Culturist pragmatism asks that we frame the discussion around what best fulfills our historic mission of carrying forth liberty. We invoke compromise in the name of what is best for all of us. By focusing on what helps the West best survive in this hostile world, we can find some common ground and have rational discourse. Demonizing the other is not moving us forward.
