Is it? Here is a wonderful excerpt from Eve that got me thinking about "Sins Of Omission" in regard to (not) speaking about homosexuality and Christianity:
So much of the “conservative” Christian world seems terrified of anything which might be misinterpreted as saying gay sex is OK. The fear is always, always that we might say something wrong, and not ever that our silence might itself cause despair, scandal, and loss of faith. My favorite variation of this approach is, “Well, I know what you’re saying, but other people might misunderstand.” I am pretty sure that ordinary people in the pews are already interpreting–and, I hope, misinterpreting–the huge echoey nothing they hear from their churches about gay or same-sex attracted Christians’ futures.
In saying that, I am not pretending that what I have to say is particularly interesting, insightful, or even 100% accurate. Trust me, there are a hundred people you should listen to before me. What I am saying is that for all of us - you included - there are situations where stewarding your particular circumstances and stories requires speaking up about them with the goal of loving your neighbor. Yes, you might get something wrong. You aren't Jesus! That doesn't mean you should never say anything. Yes, people will most likely misunderstand what you are saying. They aren't Jesus! That doesn't mean you shouldn't say anything.
And really, what is the fear of being misunderstood or having to repent but the fear of man? If God has given me something that would be helpful to share, I should really be fearing him if I don't share it.
Eve says all of this better and more succinctly that I do, so really, read her post that I linked to above. But just think about the fact that sometimes saying nothing is saying something really wrong.
