This community is a haven for unorthodox liberal and progressive Chrisitans who often find themselves on the outs with the conservative or mainstream model of Christianity.
We recognize and respect that there are multiple beliefs, viewpoints and interpretations in regards to the Bible and Christianity. As such, this is a haven where people can be and can share their experiences, faith, beliefs, news, stories, etc. without fear of people challenging the acceptability of what they believe or their right to call themselves/beliefs Christian. This is a place where people can fellowship without worry of proselytizing or someone trying to "save" them. Diversity of viewpoints on issues is welcomed in this community, as long as those diverse viewpoints are expressed with courtesy toward one another, and without condemnation or judgment.
This is not a place to define who "real Christians" are and who isn't and it is not accepted here.
As both liberals and Christians, we are staunch supporters of social justice and equal rights for everyone.
While this is a liberal Christian community, everyone is welcome, regardless of (but certainly not limited to) race, gender, nationality, socio-economic status, education, or orientation. LGBTQ members are welcome and celebrated like all members and will be treated as such.
You don't have to be a Christian or a liberal to read or participate. However postings should be related to the topic of liberal Christianity, and those interested in discussion of such.
While debate is acceptable, moderators reserve the right to intervene should the debate get out of hand and/or it threatens the civility and mission statement of this community. If you're looking for a place to have spirited debates on religion and politics we recommend xianfarleft, xtianleftdebate and christianprgsv.
We take the civility and welcoming spirit of this community very seriously. Personal attacks, rudeness, excessive arguments will result in a warning by the mods and a subsequent ban.
This community is brand-new, and as it grows, we will amend things as necessary.
