A voice for an often-ignored intersection
For many Americans, religiosity is equivalent to conservative politics and leftism is practiced secularly. I love that this podcast breaks that dichotomy and looks at people who live in that intersection. The Religious Left is small, but offers an important perspective on the liberation of all marginalized people. Jesus was a socialist!
Insightful and funny!
Appreciate how this podcast broadens the scope of faith to the wider political and economic world we live in, especially as faith is often pigeonholed into more of a personal and individual thing. And arguably for good reasons as history has demonstrated a lot of religious wars! But then, this podcast also points to how religion can help society be kinder and more compassionate.
