Greg Boyd and Abortion Update

Yesterday, the New York Times had an article on Pastor Greg Boyd of Woodland Hills Church and how sermons he gave calling the church to "steer clear of politics" caused a fairly dramatic drop in his church's attendance.

The New York Times describes Boyd's political leanings by saying, "Mr. Boyd says he is no liberal. He is opposed to abortion and thinks homosexuality is not God's ideal."

Early in my blogging career (January of 2005), I had a three part discussion with Pastor Boyd regarding his view on abortion. His view at the time was that though he thought abortion (throughout pregnancy) was abhorrent, first trimester abortions should remain legal. He thought this would be an acceptable compromise.

UPDATE: Greg Gilbert, guestblogging at Between Two Worlds, has some thoughts on the article.
