Religious academics protest and mourn in conference centered on the “Age of Trump”

The American Academy of Religion and the Society for Biblical Literature closed their joint meeting November 21 – the theme, “Faith and Resistance in the Age of Trump.”

Religion News reports:

At last year’s AAR/SBL meeting, weeks after Trump’s election with 81 percent of the white evangelical vote, the academics were “in shock,” recalled the new AAR president, Mercer University professor David Gushee.

The Episcopal Café seeks to be an independent voice, reporting and reflecting on the Episcopal Church and the Anglican tradition.  The Café is not a platform of advocacy, but it does aim to tell the story of the church from the perspective of Progressive Christianity.  Our collective sympathy, as the Café, lies with the project of widening the circle of inclusion within the church and empowering all the baptized for the role to which they have been called as followers of Christ.

The opinions expressed at the Café are those of individual contributors, and, unless otherwise noted, should not be interpreted as official statements of a parish, diocese or other organization. The art and articles that appear here remain the property of their creators.
