Mean and Non-Mean

Here’s a wonderful thought from a podcast with Harvard’s own Martin Marty–one of the good guys…in my opinion…

"I’ve often thought — I’ve often said, ‘If Billy Graham had been born
mean, we’d be in terrible trouble,’ because he had so much power, so
many gifts, and so on. One of my distinctions in religion is not
liberal and conservative, but mean and non-mean. You have mean liberals
and mean conservatives, and you have non-mean of both."
