25 Things that Shouldn’t Scare Progressive Christians

Blogger Rachel Held Evans recently came up with a list of 25 things that shouldn’t scare Christians. The list is insightful, but has a definite progressive tilt.  So I humbly offer 25 things that shouldn’t scare (progressive) Christians.

1) Intelligent design

2) Gas powered vehicles

3) Families with a mom and a dad

4) Conservative female leaders

5) A high view of scripture

6) Teetotalers

7) A balanced budget

8) Homeschooling

9) Praying before meals

10) Crisis pregnancy centers

11) Showing an ID to vote

12) Substitutionary atonement

13) Proselytizing

14) Thinking about heaven

15) censorship of pornography

16) Happy Meals

17) The word “Evangelical”

18) The national anthem

19) The second amendment
