Host Skye Jethani and columnist David French role model what it is like to have a conversation from a shared Christian background, but disagree on specific policies. The insightful conversation touches on red flag laws, suicide and guns, the right to self defense, and whether it is a good or bad to have more people with concealed carry permits. With good faith arguments made on both sides their conversation will make you think thoughtfully about the gun debate. Skip to skip to 32:38 to get to the interview.
Skye Jethani of The Holy Post and Jesse Eubanks of Love Thy Neighborhood team up to discuss fake news, the role Christians play in spreading it, and how Christians can break out of the fake news cycle.
Although the podcast starts off a little goofy, Phil Vischer, Skye Jethani and Kaitlyn Schiess discuss the wholesale rejection of critical race theory in a meeting between six southern Baptist presidents. The real meat though is in the interview ( where we recommend you start -- skip to 43:19) with David Fitch who says that critical race theory, and all critical theories for that matter, are good diagnostic tools, but they must not be divorced from a Christian view of justice. The interview provides a succinct, nuanced history of critical theory that does not throw the baby out with the bath water.
There are few words more loaded than abortion and for many Christians it is the one issue that sways their vote. Skye Jethani argues that overturning Roe v. Wade wouldn't change the abortion rate, but improving access to healthcare and changing our local and state policies on abortion would be more effective.
How do we vote as Christians? Rejecting tribalism and voting to advantage our communities is a good start.
In a tidy 15-minutes Phil Vischer attempts to answer the question why, generally speaking, white Christians vote Republican and black Christians vote Democrat. Enough said. 🙂
Phil Vischer, Skye Jethani and Christian Taylor talk about a presentation Phil and his brother Rob Vischer put together that details the ways in which government policies from the past affect Black Americans today.
