The website - here.

The mp3 - here.

We don't care," not unlike our fathers who took a position on civil rights that said, "It doesn't matter. I don't care." And they discredited the gospel and themselves, and they had to apologize. And I dare say it won't be long before some of the evangelical leaders who have said, "Don't matter, don't care," that they'll have to apologize."

Now, this is an awful thing to imagine. So loving your neighbor means doing something about that."
