Allan Bevere says that the left-right continuum doesn’t work. He’s citing someone else’s work first, but he’s applying the results to theology and ethics as well as politics.
I use the term moderate to describe both my own politics and faith. This results from my view that there are many different issues with a continuum […]
I think it’s as simple as that. I’m against it.
