Leonard Pitts writes as if there is only one major brand of Christianity in this country — one that he describes as conservatism [“Christianity the last to get it right,” Opinion, April 6].
Does he not realize that there also is a large segment of progressive Christians in this country who are committed to addressing the very causes that he identifies as matters of religious conscience?
His narrow perspective on Christianity only perpetuates the common perception in our society that the vast majority of Christians are only concerned about homosexuality and abortion.
When the press consistently fails to recognize all of the Christians who are on the front lines of providing services for those who are impoverished, advocating for those who are imprisoned, welcoming persons who are gay and lesbian, and demonstrating against wars that are unjust, we progressive Christians can only request more consideration from the press until people like Pitts get it right.
