thank you for the article on how evangelicals hear God. One thing that intrigues me, though: she refers to conservative evangelicals and liberal secularists. I wonder if she has ever considered the possibility of liberal evangelicals. In that, i am a liberal, and I am an unabashed Christian (in the sense that I know God loves my gay friends just as much as He loves my conservative ones.) Not all of us are fearmongering hateful people. Jesus is love, baby.
