Evangelical preacher Carlton Person is somebody we need to get to know. He has been shunned by the fundamentalist community for doing nothing more radical than believing in a God of love. He declared that God is Not a Christian in a 2006 book of the same name. Wow.

He stopped believing in hell. He was no longer willing to preach that a loving God would doom most of humanity to a "customized torture chamber." Deciding that "if Jesus is the savior of the world, then the world is saved," Pearson started spreading "a gospel of inclusion" -- proclaiming that everyone is saved, not just Christians..."I am not telling people they have to love gays. I am telling people they get to love gays. ... All people want is permission," Pearson says.
