I have read some of Frank Schaeffer's writings in the past and generally liked a lot of it. I am somewhat confused by him and some of his contemporary stances, however. He seemed to at least initially to take a fairly hard stance towards secular humanism and its encroachment on the church (In the 90's, "Dancing Alone", as well as many articles/interviews done for his newspaper "Christian Activist" in the wake of his recent chrismation), portraying in stark and forceful terms the contrast between the culture wars of modernity and the eternally true witness of the church. However, I heard an NPR interview with him recently where he seemed to be defending homosexuality's right to exist and be accepted into the normative experience of the church, which seems to be in direct contradiction to his previously uncompromising rhetoric. In reacting to the evangelicals generally hate filled rhetoric towards homosexuality he seems to have forgotten that this essentially political rhetoric indeed belongs to the realm of the culture wars of modernity and as such is just the other side of the coin of the secular humanist worldview. Does not the Orthodox church's view of homosexuality stand in another category altogether, one that does not condone hatred and intolerance and yet neither bows to the spirit of moral relativism? Frank Schaeffer seems to be moving towards the politics of compromise rather than take the traditional teachings of the church at face value, and yet this flies in the face of so much of his previous writings. Can anyone explain this?
