This was absolutely beautiful and I’m glad I listened to it now, when there is so much discord.

Thank you for this episode. like so many others I am moved to tears and at work no less. I am so touched by Chester avenger and his story because I was unable to possess his generosity and along the way have lost my faith in any religion. This podcast has made me pause.

I fail to see the difference between generous orthodoxy and heterodoxy, especially as illustrated in this episode. The end result is not orthodoxy, it's something different altogether. Let's take another example. If I hold left-aligned political views I am not a generous orthodoxy conservative. I am a liberal, a progressive, etc. Straining the meaning of orthodoxy is completely unnecessary. Just call yourself what you are, which in this case is not orthodox. There is no shame in identifying with whatever denomination or movement that best describes your views.

I work at a conservative Christian University and I would never tell my gay students to just leave, because the old white Christians don't really care if they leave. There will just be other white Christian students to take their place, and make the old white men church body will be happy. Schools should be welcoming to all, willing to call out injustices, and change because diversity is the essence of life and future of our ever evolving country. If those black students leave Princeton, there will just be other white guys (future old white millionaire men) to take their place, happy that the school is homogeneous.

When is generous orthodoxy not enough? When life and liberty are at stake it may not be powerful enough to effect change. I like the approach though.
