HERO: Looking back; looking forward

Houstonians defeated HERO this week.  Reasonable people must now work to find a middle ground that prohibits discrimination, treats people fairly and does not do so in a way that makes things unsafe for others.  Surely this is possible. Soon, though, another issue will take its place. When it does I hope the church will be a reasoned, moral voice in public conversations.  The church has as much right to share it's views and advocate for what it believes in the public arena as any other group in America and should not be shy about doing so.  Our Constitution makes it our right.  The Bible makes it our responsibility.
