Comment Code of Conduct
(based on Sojourners' code)
I will express myself with civility, courtesy, and respect for every member of the Ethos online community, especially toward those with whom I disagree—even if I feel disrespected by them. (Romans 12:17-21)
I will express my disagreements with other community members' ideas without insulting, mocking, or slandering them personally. (Matthew 5:22)
I will not exaggerate others' beliefs nor make unfounded prejudicial assumptions based on labels, categories, or stereotypes. I will always extend the benefit of the doubt. (Ephesians 4:29)
I will hold others accountable by reporting comments that violate these principles, based not on what ideas are expressed but on how they're expressed. (2 Thessalonians 3:13-15)
I understand that comments reported as abusive are reviewed by Ethos staff and are subject to removal. Repeat offenders will be blocked from making further comments.  (Proverbs 18:7)

Sunday, 21 January 2018
 | Sarah Judd-Lam

Like Handmaid's Tale, Alias Grace confronts the implications for women of class-based, religiously justified power play, and asks what faith offers to those who have experienced injustice. With recent revelations of sexual misconduct in the entertainment industry, domestic violence in the church and the extent of child abuse, the series could not have been more timely.

Dystopia Now: the present reality of Children of Men

Thursday, 14 December 2017
 | Karly Michelle Edgar

Children of Men may feel like an extreme scenario, where a corrupt government keeps its citizens, especially the rich, safe and the refugees out. A government where some human beings are worth more than others. But if this year has shown us anything it’s that this isn’t some dystopian, futuristic movie plot. This is the present.

Saturday, 11 November 2017
 | Mick Pope

It’s not about self-flagellation, guilt or shame, but about waking up and stepping up. It’s about restorative justice that lifts people up, and right living that prevents us from falling into sin. I need to be saved, not from skin, not from gender, but from the throne of privilege.
