A liberal church in Mississippi?
Friendly Atheist has highlighted an atheist who is visiting various churches in Mississippi. Obviously he's had a rough time of the experience so far. So the question is whether there are liberally minded churches in the state.
I tried to find public liberal churches in Mississippi, something you can find easily in most parts of the country. Not very easy in though that state besides a few UUA congregations. A couple church websites from that area did catch my eye though:
http://www.trinityhattiesburg.org/ Trinity Episcopal Church in Hattiesburg which says they are an "open and diverse family dedicated to serving God and all creation" Many of the Episcopal churches in the state gave indication of being moderate to liberal.
http://www.fpcoxford.net/index.php?/who-we-are/ First Presbyterian in Oxford says "we celebrate and respect the rich diversity of background and belief to be found here" Also First Christian in Gulfport shows some promise at www.fccgulfport.org
My own work is with the UCC and Disciples of which there seems to be little presence. One's best bet is PCUSA, the Episcopal Church, and the ELCA. But even these groups, which are generally moderate to liberal, are often conservative in Mississippi.
I honestly don't know what I'd do if I lived there. Sounds like a painful time to be had for anyone who expects to find fair minded religion. But if anyone has congregation suggestions in that state feel free to share them on this site and Friendly Atheist's site.
