My wife just showed me this piece on MSNBC that details the firing of a pastor over what appears, in part, to be his support of the ideas in Rob Bell’s now infamous book, Love Wins.

For me, this story underscores the need for a strong laity voice in discussions of this nature, whether it be in blogs, on Facebook, etc. Many leaders who are sympathetic to touchy subjects like this are under pressure to be diplomatic, and it helps when the rest of us are willing to speak up.
