American evangelicals could/should learn from their Irish evangelical friends.

The Irish Evangelical Alliance has issued a statement about the proposal which is before the Irish Government regarding “Civil Unions”

I find this statement on behalf of Irish Evangelicals to be utterly refreshing, especially in the light of the angry voices we hear from American Evangelicals and Fundamentalists.

There are three aspects which I like.

1. Irish Evangelicals are being totally faithful to their own understanding of the Gospel.

2. Their entire tone is irenic and gracious. There is not a single note of anger or judgment.

3. There is a clear recognition by the Irish Christians that they live in a post-Constantinian world.

Here is the link for the Irish Evangelical Alliance

Now click on “Community Alert” (on the right).

I’d love to know what you think.
