Our society could be transformed by Christians who refuse to participate in the viciousness of our current public conversation. Imagine the impact on our talk radio and our TV opinion shows if everyone somehow came to recognize the dignity and sacredness of their political and ideological enemies, and if Christians refused to support media personalities known for their anger and dismissive contempt for adversaries. Christians must be visibly different in how we speak of, and speak to, those we disagree with. Here is a person for whom Christ lived, died, and rose again. We know this, and must act accordingly.
