Sadly, I'm pretty sure 'cancel culture' is a term that has already become another empty bucket. People put whatever they don't agree with in it and use whatever the opprobrium term of the week is... this week it's "cancel culture."    For survey purposes, people say they don't do it, but it's more likely they dismiss it when they do it: it's a term of opprobrium, so it's only something They do, not something We or I do.

Views expressed are always my own and not my employer's, my church's, my family's, my neighbors', or my pets'. The house plants have authorized me to speak for them, however, and they always agree with me.

Really, if we believe that a person can repent of sin and in many cases be restored, and that is at the heart of the Gospel, we can really reach people by noting that the standard for restoration is a mix of repentance and restitution, not lifelong expulsion from public life.

Aspiring to be a stick in the mud.
