It’s funny. Theologically, I don’t consider myself a liberal at all. My views simply feel to me like growth into knowledge, which has happened over a long period of time, and which actually include far more claims to not know than to know. But I know I am seen by some — perhaps many — as being liberal which, I think, will happen when a person stops claiming to know things that some might believe the Christian faith absolutely depends upon knowing.
I have even met people who simply say, “You’re a liberal,” and think my own opinion of my views doesn’t matter at all. They need so much to put me in a box so they can oppose me. Interesting it’s always conservatives who do that. When I side with conservatives on things, liberals never try to force me into the conservative box. I wonder if that means anything.
