In this this talk, Dr. Hogue of Meadville Lombard Theological School will address these questions in two parts. He will first show how contemporary threats to American democracy emerge directly out of, rather than diverge from, longstanding religious and political traditions in American history. He will then argue that the Trump presidency represents a crisis for these traditions—a moment of reckoning that creates an opportunity for the renewing of a more equitable, emancipatory, and empathic mode of democratic life. The talk will conclude with a discussion of how all of us, no matter our party affiliation, faith tradition, or cultural identity, can be involved in the work of building a more resilient democracy.
