The Ethical Society of St Louis is holding a free online event:
From some of the insurrectionists who laid siege to the US Capitol, to the angry politics of conservative leaders like Senator Josh Hawley, Christian nationalism is on the rise in America. But what exactly is this dangerous ideology; what is its relationship to mainstream Christianity; and how can we face the threat it poses to our democracy and our communities?
ZOOM MEETING ID: 384 422 5785
Join the Ethical Society of St. Louis and Center for Freethought Equality to learn from a panel of distinguished experts who will help us understand–and confront–the threat of Christian nationalism.
– Dr. Sabrina Dent, Senior Faith Adviser at Americans United for Separation of Church and State;
– Katherine Stewart, author of The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism; and
– Amanda Tyler, Executive Director of the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty
I’ve heard Stewart speak, and she’s very good. I’ll look forward to getting the perspectives of the others. Friday at 7pm Central, hope to see you there!
