How AIDS Changed the Way American Christians Talk About Sex

…rms of sexuality (which they often just called heterosexuality). They also talked a lot about improper forms of sex, including sodomy or homosexuality, but also sex before marriage, sex out of wedlock, and commercial sex. But even this history of sexuality is a starting point for a bigger claim about the form of power that religion takes in modern America, including its ability to shape ideas about health and citizenship. Did you have a specific a…

How to Die in America: A Conversation with Ann Neumann

Nobody likes to talk about death. And when we do talk about it, we romanticize it, or veil it in mystery. “The way we talk about dying and the way we die are two very different things,” writes journalist Ann Neumann. Grounded in a narrative of her own experience caring for a dying parent, Neumann’s new book, The Good Death, joins a spate of excellent books about dying published in just the last few months. The Good Death traverses a wide range of…

From Bad to Worstest: How Liberals Should (And Should Not) Talk About Values

…in constant judgment. It turns out to be super easy to turn people off by talking about ethics and morals. It’s not wrong to talk about your values. I do it all the time! But you have to approach it sideways, with a sense of humor and surprise. Giving someone an unexpected reason to buy into a value works much better than a blunt, confrontational declaration. Start with a story. Drop the labels, the identities, the principles, and tell a story. A…

Spiritual But Not Religious? Come Talk to Me

…on I keep in my office, in which a man with a t-shirt on that reads “LET’S TALK ABOUT JESUS,” says to another man, “It guarantees me an entire seat all to myself.”) I also share the Reverend Daniel’s frustration with people who might use “spiritual but not religious” as code for “I don’t really think about religion at all because it’s boring or difficult or irrelevant to my pursuit of self-interest.” One statistician of religion suggests that Amer…

New Poll Finds “Growing Appetite” for Mixing Religion and Politics

…percent of white evangelicals believe there has been too little religious talk from politicians, by far the largest percentage of any religious group. By contrast, though, only 32% of Democrats and Democratic-leaners believed there was “too little” religious talk, a figure that has held steady since 2010. Twenty five percent of respondents deemed the Democratic Party “unfriendly” to religion. But the religious breakdown of this response is worth…

This Narrative of Death that is So Powerful Among Us

…y in covenant with one another.   Dan: Well, speaking of covenant, we were talking about those alternative identities, and I wanted to talk about your new book, Journey to the Common Good for a little bit. I haven’t read the whole thing, but it seems like the thesis is pretty much that we find those kind of new identities as neighbors in that journey through scripture, through that narrative. Is that right? Walter: That’s right, I think, insofar a…

Mitt Romney’s Best-Known Mormon Critic Tells it All. One Last Time.

…ork in the State Department. At the very last moment, with no boyfriend to talk me out of graduation, my professors talked me into applying to the Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy at Tufts, and I got a scholarship. It shocked me, but I went to Boston and the Fletcher School. I was the very straight arrow Mormon girl; the one who drank from the separate punchbowl. Then the Vietnam War swept me up, and I began to question everything. I was hired…

How to Talk to a Trump Evangelical at Christmas

…cuss Hillary. There’s nothing that Trump evangelicals would rather do than talk about Hillary Clinton, a nemesis they’ve relied on for 30 years. She is gone. Don’t be baited. Hilary-talk is often an evasion tactic for persons who fear your questions about what Christianity requires of them in a post-Clinton era. 2. Don’t discuss Obama. This may be more difficult. You may feel nostalgia and a moral impulse to defend an unfairly maligned minority pr…

COVID-19 is Concentrating Wealth Even Further; Can we Talk About the Surplus of Powerlessness in the Faith Community?

…the eerie silence where the rest of faith leadership is concerned. When I talk about this with colleagues I hear lots of theories: fragmentation, fatigue, and of course the overwhelming immediate urgency of giving support and comfort to the grieving and the fearful. But something else is going on, and I think it’s something progressive religious people will need to grapple with whenever there’s time to take a deep breath. That something else is t…

Mormons, LGBT People Respond to Packer’s Talk

…ometimes reach out to feel her head for horns. Late in her life, she and I talked about homosexuality—we talked about everything—and she recalled back in the 1950s a boy who grew up on her block in her middle-class Los Angeles suburb, a child who she always knew was different, and kindly she asked, “I wonder what has happened to him? I wonder if everything turned out okay for him?” Kindness was the core of her Mormonism. In this moment, her memory…
