Citing ‘Matthew 25’ Isn’t a Viable Democratic Faith Outreach Strategy

…ics itself and the way we talk about politics. “It’s good to step back and talk about how we talk about politics,” Stoehr says, “especially given that how we talk about politics is often as real as Santa Claus and unicorns.” Indeed it is. Stoehr’s target in this column are the pat phrases that start out as journalistic shorthand for how a race is going but end up defining reality itself: “Momentum,” like “lanes,” can be helpful to understanding th…

Dems Need More Faith, Episode LXXI: The Beer Caucus Proposal

…or confronting Trump or whatever their favorite hobbyhorse is.) And let’s talk about the age of the Dems-Should-Talk-More-About-Faith narrative. My God, it practically goes all the way back “Tastes Great” vs. “Less Filling.” If you wrote out a list of all the articles that have announced breathlessly that Dems are finally breaking the mold by learning to talk about faith, it would be longer than one of those German bier boots and completely obvia…

TED-Evangelism Harkens Back to a Forgotten 19th-Century Tradition

…atural. You don’t think Why is this Harvard researcher choking up during a talk about her scientific research? You think, Hey, she’s talking about that feeling of being an impostor, and gosh, I’ve been there too! Cuddy’s lecture describes how a two minute-long posture exercise “could significantly change the way your life unfolds” by making you more confident and less stressed. The lecture also details Cuddy’s own story—a story of hardship, person…

Controversial LDS Conference Talk Edited for Publication

…biology. This may be the first instance in 26 years when an LDS conference talk was substantially edited for republication, the last being Elder Ronald Poelman’s October 1984 conference talk on “The Church and the Gospel.” In Mormon circles, this kind of correction is understood not as a public relations effort, but as the result of a significant internal dialogue within Church leadership over matters of rank, authority, and theology. Those who ha…

Sin is Not a Crime: A Conversation with Patrick Cheng 

…nce there is a way of talking about sin that people are comfortable and confident with people can move forward. We can acknowledge our corporate sinfulness and move on from there. If you think one particular sin is worse than another, that’s not what we need to talk about. We should be talking about how we all can get to grace and salvation. It can also help LGBT Christians move beyond the happy, clappy place after they’ve explained away Leviticus…

The ‘C’ Word: What We’re Missing When We Talk About ‘White Privilege’

…th, you know, I had a chapter in that book on religious oppression where I talked about Christian privilege. I was talking about Christian privilege from the time of my dissertation in the late 90s. However, you start learning more and more, you start connecting the dots, right, so then I learned much more about Asian American history, I learned much more about Latino history and much more about African American history than I ever learned [before…

Shifting Talk on Mormon Racism Reveals Divisions within LDS Church

…omosexuality had been edited for publication, so too might Elder Dickson’s talk be edited to correlate with official scripture. But the talk will appear in print, unchanged. One month. Two high-placed LDS sources. Two very different takes on the faith’s historic racism. One offers no excuses for priesthood segregation. One makes it sound like part of God’s plan.  The events of this spring reveal a Church whose hired historians and high-ranking off…

How To Talk To “Nones” and Influence People: Rob Bell’s Transrational Experience

…g all over our society, according to Bell. He sees it in the fact that TED talks require you to talk about topics that you can prove with evidence—no spirituality allowed. You can hear it in New Atheist rhetoric, which, according to Bell, often mistakes the transrational for the pre-rational. “Right, the pre-rational and the transrational may be using the same language, but coming from a different perspective,” Bell told me. Like when someone says…

No God but Country: The Religion of John McCain Has Something Important to Tell Us

…he has such a hard time tying with a denomination, and why he doesn’t like talking about anything as singularly conceding as religious devotion. For some observers, the fact that McCain doesn’t talk much about his faith, about his Christianity, is a denominational inevitability. “McCain, actually, is being very authentic by keeping it inside,” writes voter Eric Gorski in a letter to the New York Times, “He doesn’t wear religion on his sleeve becau…

How Should Mormons Respond to Leader’s Anti-Gay Comments?

…ith LGBT friends and relatives felt hurt and discouraged by Elder Packer’s talk. What would you say to them? Don’t let this talk silence you. Don’t let it drive you away (but don’t let it endanger your life either). God loves you and your children and your friends. Church leaders are very clear that being attracted to members of the same sex is not sinful, is not abominable. If you’ve spent your energy praying to have the attraction removed from y…
