The Church: known for negativity – Examiner Article

So, I applied to write for the Portland examiner and was accepted. I was really excited about that! I am now the Portland, ME Religion & Politics Examiner, and, as many of you know, I have very strong opinions on both of these subjects so I find it unlikely that I will have any shortage of ideas.

I posted my first articles today, The Church: known for negativity. If you get a chance please check it out and let me know your thoughts. You can also click here to subscribe via RSS to my articles. The following is an excerpt from my article:

It appears the Church’s negativity is not consistent with the Bible. The Bible teaches, and the earliest Christians demonstrated, that following Christ was a matter of showing others His love, not His condemnation. Sadly, most Christians in today’s society are known for opposing homosexual marriage, opposing casinos, opposing abortion, opposing a mosque at Ground Zero and so on.

    I’ll have to add you to my Examiner page. I got accepted to write for the Albany Practical Christian Living Examiner.

    I’m having trouble figuring out what to write, though. I barely have enough time to write blog posts, let alone newsworthy items for the Examiner.

    Any tips?

      I am covering religion and politics so, at least for my subject, i figure there will be lots of material to give commentary and opinion on. I would have a much harder time doing a column like yours or Alan’s. Fortunately they only ask for three a week.
