The Progressive Christian Blogger Network
I’ve just joined the Progressive Christian Blogger Network in the hope of finding some kindred spirits, but I’m not very hopeful.
Much of the Internet, including the blogosphere, seems to be dominated by the USA, and US political, social and religious divisions make little sense to me. They’re always on about the “Religious Right” over there, and when I’ve encountered it, I’ve found myself totally out of sympathy with their style, if not with all their causes. I generally agree with the “Pro-Life” position, but to me that means being opposed to war and capital punishment as well as to abortion, and especially to the recent US-led wars of aggression in Yugoslavia and Iraq.
And when it comes to wars of aggression, Bill Clinton doesn’t seem to count as a member of the “Religious Right”, but his warmongering doesn’t seem to be any better than George Bush’s.
But still I hope, and so, for what it’s worth, there’s now a “Progressive Christian Blogroll” here mainly to make it easy for me to look at some of the blogs listed, and blog them here if there’s any good stuff on them.
