How do we even talk about this?

My "Tired" post was inspired by a lot of things, but also by this post at by Chris at People, books and the glory of Christ. It is very frustrating to me that rather than having a dicussion about why we disagree on the important social issues of our time, the speaker at the event Chris attended instead suggests that liberal Christians are just assimilating to the culture and abandoning Christian values.

That seems to me to be a convenient way to reject the argument of someone you disagree with without having to engage the substance of the argument. As a "liberal Christian", I would suggest that honoring all people, including gays and lesbians, is an example of faithfully living the gospel of Christ.

How do we talk about these issues when, for some people, holding certain opinions disqualifies you from even participating?
