This plea from an evangelical is interesting:
Don't believe the worst about us"”it may only empower the worst in us. Keep the faith in building bridges. Reach out. Speak the truth in love to evangelicals you know. That will require looking for openness to conversation with evangelicals wherever it can be found.
Willis, in classic form, says (and I'm paraphrasing a famously misquoted line), "We don't need your stinking mercy."
