Hi Sarah, I enjoyed your framing that in the States we are either pro-this or against-this and agree with the statement. I think a lot of it could stem from our two party political system, however, I suspect there are many more underlying factors. Regardless, we as American’s and western society in general struggle with ambiguity and desire things to be black and white i.e. pro-this or anti-that. This mindset leaves little space for complex issues as you say, or paradoxes – and getting to the humanity of both people as you mention is beneficial. I really liked your closing line – that it’s our responsibility as Christians to display the love of Christ to both groups – there’s a lot of power there and recognition of each groups humanity and inherent human rights.
