Today I had one of the most profound work experiences of my career. It happened in (to me) the most unexpected of places. I’m working with the Presbyterian Church of the USA and with my Irish background, I wasn’t sure what to expect. This will be a long post.
PCUSA is seeking the most radical agenda of any group with whom I’ve worked. They want to be the moral voice that counters so-called evangelical Christians. They are discussing how to talk about white supremacy, eradicating systemic racism, the underpinning of white, capitalist, hetero values in all of our institutions. They are fighting transphobia and attacks on women’s right to choice.
They seek to make every congregation educated change agents.
They are horrified by trump and his supporters.
We don’t have to be religious to agree with their goals. But they ground their arguments in scripture to refute the twisted reading so many evangelicals promote to excuse hate and injustice and deny full human rights.
I’m so thankful to see a religious organization, starting at the national level, to promulgate rights and justice as the mission of every congregant. And to be heard and drown out the corrosive religious voices we hear from today. Comments welcome. ... See MoreSee Less
I, on the other hand, am excited about the goals you speak of and the fact that they are being so looked at by the major denomination. Thanks for your work with them
Helene, I love your post... but with one objection. You write “with my Irish background, I’ve always been a bit prejudiced.” That’s unfair... and historically misleading. As between the Irish and the Presbyterians, the bigotry has been on the Presbyterian side. In my mother’s family, that was writ large.
The intentions are well enough. But rhetoric will never suffice. The physical political power of the evangelical heathens will dominate the stage for decades. The ONLY solutuon is the total annihilation of theism. The is absolutely NO ARGUMENT that justifies belief in a diety.
