ELSEWHERE: Which Side Is the Right Side of History?
With the new SCOTUS decisions coming down, there’s been a lot of historical prognostication and jabbering about being on “the right side of history.” Ted Olsen reminds us over at Christianity Today, that there have been a lot of rewrites.

I’ve seen a lot of chatter about the right side of history. And I’m like, finding the approval of future humans is even more self-absorbed and pathetic than finding approval in humans of the present.
Well, I don’t know about that.
“Thankfully, that’s what we’re seeing in the early Christian responses to
yesterday’s Supreme Court decisions. Almost to a one, the Christian
leaders we talked to yesterday disavowed easy lines of ‘Christians vs.
gays and lesbians.'”
Not as much the Christian bloggers, however.
I, too, am a little perplexed about ‘coming down on the right side of history’, why believers or non-believers would concern themselves with that (well, believers anyway). Perhaps I am naive, but I believe the only judge we need to worry about is the one we will be standing before on the Day of Judgement.
