Leper Messiah: A Jesus Freak’s Search for the Meaning of Bowie—A Critical Novella

…star and Godspell opened Broadway and off-Broadway, respectively, and a pink-skinned, purple-haired Jesus in the Sky with Diamonds stared soulfully from American newsstands—the Peter Max-style illustration for Time magazine’s cover story on “The Jesus Revolution.” Time dutifully informed Middle America that: Jesus is alive and well and living in the radical spiritual fervor of a growing number of young Americans who have proclaimed an extraordinar…

A Better Form of Atheism: Rescuing the Christian Tradition from Religion

…study theology? Recently, I caught up with theologian and philosopher Adam Kotsko to find out. In the conversation below we talk about his most recent book—an examination of the the Christian tradition that speaks to everything from atonement theory, capitalism as “the empire of sin,” and what it means to leave God in place, but leave religion behind. Emily Manuel: So in Politics of Redemption, you outline a new take on atonement theory. First, yo…

Gay, Christian, Pagan, Artist: How Matt Morris Defies the Borders of Spiritual Identity

…a Christian. It’s just me trying to step outside of it and see what it looks like. The language that Christians use around theology or what the holy is, pointing to Scripture as proof – those are things that just don’t really happen that way in Paganism. There’s no proof-texting to be done. One’s engagement with the world and one’s engagement with life and one’s engagement with the holy as they experience it is, if anything, their proof-text. But…

The Way of the Brother: How Critics Missed the Boat on Tree of Life

…un-Woo Jang, 1994), and Spring, Summer, Autumn, Winter, … and Spring (Ki-Duk Kim, 2003), a list that could go on. Meditative images of minute dimensions of life meet soaring soundtracks, focusing the viewers’ attention on the often overlooked.   Beyond the style, I mention here one curious relation to the narrative of Buddhism’s origins. The Life of the Buddha tells of Siddhartha’s young existence as a prince, living in a kingdom of earthly deligh…

Does NIH Head Francis Collins Believe in Intelligent Design?

…dily undermined by his research. But most moral arguments for God don’t look like this. The kind of moral argument sketched out above is one of two particularly important kinds of moral arguments for God. The other was developed by Kant. A full explanation of Kant’s argument is beyond the scope of this essay, but here’s an oversimplified gloss: For Kant, reason determines what is moral, and reason also tells us two other things, first, that being…

Reconsidering “Love the Sinner, Hate the Sin”: An Interview with Ethicist Eric Reitan

…our LGBT neighbors rather than theorizing about what the natural order looks like we’re going to reach very different conclusions. If we start with this theory that we impose upon our neighbors but we’re not paying compassionate attention to the neighbors to really discern how the imposition of that theory affects them then we are prioritizing allegiance to that theory over neighbor love. The theory then becomes something we’re using to blind our…

This Narrative of Death that is So Powerful Among Us

…u’ve talked several times, here today and in the Counterscript speech that kicked off this whole project, about that kind of partisan wrangling, those arguments we carry on with one another. What role does partisan engagement have for Christians? Walter: We are inevitably strong advocates for what we think is right. What I’ve said in several places is that it is foolish for liberal Christians and conservative Christians to spend all of their energ…

“I ‘Came Out’ For Marriage Equality”: An Anti-Gay Activist Changes His Mind

…d talking about how a ban on same-sex marriage affected them in a negative way, it kind of came across to me as: they’re specifically trying to make you feel bad, in order to turn [you] against your convictions, in order to support their cause. So I was directly turned off by that.   But then when I went out on the summer tour and I saw people face to face—it wasn’t right away, but after several stops—these people… basically, it started to set in,…

Meeting on the Bridge: Fr. James Martin’s Ministry to LGBT Catholics Becomes a Book

…to LGBT Catholics. Can you talk about how that came about and what that looks like—because with this book coming out, that might become less informal? James Martin: It’s similar to the kinds of ministries that other Jesuits, priests, members of religious orders and lay pastoral associates have in parishes. For example, some people who come to me for spiritual direction might be LGBT. Some people who seek me out after Mass, or on a retreat, or afte…

God Will Not Make You Straight: An Interview with GCN’s Justin Lee

…reaking experience because I saw a lot of things I hoped I wouldn’t see, like kids being pushed to be there by their parents. Then Alan called me and said he wanted to come to the GCN conference—which is tricky because we have members who are survivors of ex-gay ministries who have experienced a lot of trauma. Seeing Alan at our conference would be a very big deal for some folks in a good way and in a harmful way for others. I had worked out what…
