Bill Kinnon posted on Good Friday an article on CNN by contributor Roland Martin (which also appears on his blog). Now, I hadn’t heard of Roland Martin before, but I read the article, and happened to catch the last 20 minutes or so of his special on CNN, “What Would Jesus Really Do?” I think I like this guy. Would you believe that he’s actually suggesting that God cares about some other things besides abortion and homosexuality? Wow… that’s going to be revolutionary in some quarters. I like it.

Coincidentally (?) it’s also what Tony Campolo was saying when he was interviewed by George Stroumboulopoulos on CBC’s The Hour. (CBC video & comments)

George also mentions on his blog that the interview has been partially transcripted by Elron. In general, it looks to me like a long-overdue wake-up call to the misguided who seem to think that their God is so shallow he only cares about two issues. No matter how big those two issues may be in the eyes of those who can’t see past them, God is concerned about far more. And I’m glad the mainstream media covering this, even if some corners of mainstream Christianity haven’t cottoned on yet. Eventually, they will.
