Sr. Staff Reading Group: Patriotism, Race, and the Credit of Love
These are not easy times for Christian patriots—or perhaps for Christians who would like to be patriots, or who simply wonder about patriotism’s moral credentials. The increasing polarization of American politics, which has been growing for some time but became particularly vitriolic following the election of President Donald Trump in 2016, has replaced many of our familiar political debates with a new, central fault line: the significance of the nation and of national culture. Debates over trade, immigration, foreign policy, and values increasingly turn on this issue.
Faith and Law Senior Staffer Reading group will be meeting to discuss "Patriotism, Race, and the Credit of Love" by Peter Meileander.
