Critique of a Liberal Pluralist Vision
John Stevens, National Director of the Fellowship of Independent Evangelical Churches (FIEC), has written about the resignation of Tim Farron as leader of the Liberal Democrats, arguing that Christians should "advocate for a truly plural society" and be "willing to permit sexual freedom to others." Joe Boot critiques this pluralistic vision, arguing that Stevens hasn't differentiated between a crime and a sin. We should apply the Bible to all areas, not capitulate to pluralism.
