Time Magazine has an interesting article titled, Christianity’s Image Problem. If you were at the Catalyst Conference you got the inside scoop on all this. It is based on the Barna research and published in the book UnChristian by Kinnaman and Lyons.
Here is a clip from the article: “Kinnaman
says non-Christians’ biggest complaints about the faith are not immediately
theological: Jesus and the Bible get relatively good marks. Rather, he sees
resentment as focused on perceived Christian attitudes. Nine out of ten
outsiders found Christians too ‘anti-homosexual,’ and nearly as many
perceived it as ‘hypocritical’ and ‘judgmental.’
Seventy-five percent found it ‘too involved in politics.'”
