The October 2019 interview on “Glen’s Parallax Perspectives” takes a fresh look at some public policy issues that have been pushed hard from conservative Christian viewpoints, showing that those are not the only voices of Christianity. Glen interviews three retired Christian ministers—Paul Wee, Melody Young, and Paul Lundborg—who share faith-based insights and perspectives that differ greatly from those of the Religious Right.
We discuss how the Religious Right has hijacked Christianity and American politics. Theologians and religious leaders pushed back in an essay called “Reclaiming Jesus: A Confession of Faith in a Time of Crisis.” Our interviewees discuss points in this article that affirm an authentic Christian faith that supports all people’s human rights and equality.
We also discuss the constitutionally required separation of Church and State, Jesus’ radical nonviolent campaign for social justice, the Liberation Theology movement and other remedies.
