Weekly Roundup: A Massacre in Atlanta

Brad and Dan discuss the various threads connecting the massacre in Atlanta: from the history of anti-Asian racism, to the various dimensions of purity culture, to the cover Christian nationalism provides to acts of violence. They then discuss the Vatican’s statement on why the Church can’t bless same-sex unions. To Brad and Dan this is an instance of the hurtful “loving the sinner, hating the sin” ideal used in Evangelical spaces. They conclude with a segment on Russian interference in our election, masculinity, and the ease in which many are willing to write off democracy.
