仿效其他國家處理同性戀問题時,要提防爭取的事項

原刊於Religion News Service,2015年5月8日

Which nations exactly are we supposed to be emulating—the ones that flog lesbians or the ones that execute gay men? (“Uganda Action” protest – Image courtesy: Kaytee Riek – http://bit.ly/1F9YK4N)

In a closed-door meeting with Christian leaders last year, a man who’s something of hero of mine stood to make the case on why we must resist the rising tide of LGBT rights. He read what seemed like an approved checklist of talking points peppered with traditional interpretations of relevant biblical passages and sociological data. His arguments, though well trod, were sincere.

But just before he concluded, my friend added a new appeal: Americans should listen to non-Western Christians on the matter. The faithful in many countries have held the line on traditional understandings of sexuality and marriage, and it would be arrogant for progressive Americans to ignore their brothers and sisters’ perspectives
