Brightening the Future

Kudos to Bess Hinson, a junior at Yale University, for her essay Reclaiming Christianity from the Christian Right. The future looks much brighter when I see the next generation saying things like:
We must better articulate the more moderate side of Christianity as it exists today in the South and Middle America in order to counteract the popular assumption that the entire region is sold on the radical Rightist principles. . . .

We must now stand firm and be unafraid to say, "I profess a different Christianity from the Christianity professed by the Christian Right." . . .

If a distinct, clear voice is not given to mainstream, moderate and liberal Christians, our generation risks an increased misconception of Christianity.
