While I don't agree with them, I don't see the logical contradiction for their impeachment. Could you please spell it out? To me, the moral difference is that, in the Iraq war, killing innocent people was unintentional, while killing an innocent fetus is the very point of abortion. Unfortunately, Fred Clark's article is a misleading representation of scripture and the history of Christianity. The exact words may change over time, but the concept has been pretty consistent for those who care to research it.

Trayvon's death was certainly an avoidable shame, but it is not clear to me that it was unjust. If reports of him assaulting Zimmerman are true, it may have been justifiable self defense. What would you like to hear white evangelicals say about Trayvon, specifically? To answer your questions: Yes, I know people of many different skin colors. No, I do not make an effort to read or listen to the perspectives of people simply on the basis of their skin color. Why not? Because skin color is not a strong indicator of value to me. That said, I do periodically make an effort to read or listen to or engage people with different perspectives, regardless of their skin color.
