Expanding "essentials"

I take it that for [Albert] Mohler and those with him, identity-talk is on the same doctrinal and moral plane as marriage. Expanding the category of “essentials” this way inherently marginalizes gay Christians’ commitment to sexual orthodoxy, and allows such Christians to be depicted as false teachers who are outside the orthodox camp — or very soon will be.

Matthew Lee Anderson, reflecting on the critics of Revoice, hyperlink added. Anderson includes links to both critics and, to my mind, the more cogent critics of the critics of Revoice. One could spend all day following those links.
