Coming on the heels of the last episode about the #SOCIALISM2017 conference, Matt and Dean are joined by Daniel Camacho, a Duke Divinity grad and contributing writer at The Guardian, to talk about Christianity in the US in 2017.
- Why it’s not a surprise that evangelicals have overwhelmingly supported Donald Trump–and why we should judge them by their fruits.
- Evangelicalism and the politics of resentment.
- The legacy of racism and capitalism haunts American Christianity–and not just the evangelicals.
- A material analysis of evangelicalism is important.
- Evangelicalism’s policing function.
- Can we retrain our theological imaginations to fund a leftist politics?
- A religious left isn’t and shouldn’t be the mirror image of the religious right.
- There’s been a religious left long before 2017–why’s it so hard to remember?
- The Kingdom of God doesn’t boil down to “I’m not as bad as the next guy.”
- The future of the Christian Left will have to be pluralistic.
- The rad trads…they are…bad.
- Does the left have to name class as a primary site of struggle? (No.)
