Episode 150 - Is Evangelicalism Obsessed with Politics?: Christian Responses to Roy Moore and Sexual Harassment

In Episode 150, Keith, Justin, and Wesley discuss the recent evangelical responses to the Roy Moore scandal in Alabama. How has religion been used to justify evil behavior? How can Christians stand by men who abuse and harass women? Why has evangelicalism gotten itself so intrinsically tied up with conservative politics, and is there any hope for the label of "evangelical" anymore? Does the evangelical church's view of women contribute and perpetuate complicity in these acts? How are other Christians resisting complicity in sexual harassment? Listen to find out what we think! In the beginning, the guys celebrate Justin's birthday, Keith's anniversary, and talk about social media as a future historical source. Finally, the guys wrap up the show by giving their final thoughts. As always, be sure to rate, comment, and subscribe to the podcast. Let us know what you think!
