@jplace – It is definitely a struggle for me when I see those with unequal power dynamics. It’s hard for me to look at those waving the Trump flag and arguing against LGBTQ+ rights and to see Christ in them. On some level, there’s the same pressure I felt when I was an Evangelical Christian to “share the Gospel” with them, but on a progressive level. But at the same time, I feel a sense of self-preservation that says, “why bother? This is the life they have chosen for themselves. There is no need to risk your own safety by engaging with that type.”
Yet, isn’t that what Kim-Kort is arguing for? I struggle with that.
