Being a pro-choice Christian

Todd Friel has a good article called "How To Be A Pro-Choice Christian." It deals a little more with liberation theology than it does the political issue of abortion. The abortion issue is more of a link to the issue of liberation theology than it is the focus of the article.

Either way, check it out.

Here's a snippet
Liberation theology has roots in Marxism (you cannot be happy under capitalism with one person living better than another). Dietrich Boenhoffer believed that theology must start with a "view from below." In other words, taking care of our fellow man is THE most important aspect of Christianity. “Forget salvation and correct theology, we gotta do stuff.”
He closes it by saying:
We don’t need to have a political debate with our neighbors; we need to start witnessing to them.
Very, very well-said.

Yes, well said. But call it something else--unless you're just into using shock tactics to get someone's attention. "Pro choice" is so closely connected to "pro abortion" that I couldn't use it in association with "Christian".

I think the term was used because its use of the term "pro-choice" did deal with abortion as well. There was really double usage of the term. It didn't seem to me to be a shock tactic.
