Talking about the “Things That Matter Most” on June 25, 2019
4:00 – The Rise and Fall of the American-Judeo Consensus
During the early 20th Century, the prevailing American Protestant consensus splintered, and some liberal Protestants responded by reaching out to make common cause with Jews and Catholics. The result was the “Judeo-Christian consensus” that sought to ground American identity and public policy in the values shared across Protestant, Catholics, and Jews. The Judeo-Christian consensus became ascendant during the 1930s, reached its peak during the early 1960s, and began its decline during the 1990s. We talk about it with Dr James Patterson.
4:20 – The Sexual Revolution and the Abuse Crisis
The sexual revolution has had an incalculable effect on our society, but there are now entire generations of adults who don’t even remember when it began. We look over the history of the revolution and its effects on today, along with the latest data on the sexual abuse crisis in the Church, with Jennifer Roback Morse.
5:00 – The First Church of Intersectionality
Intersectionality has become a popular buzzword, especially in social justice circles. What is it? What are its virtues and limitations? We talk with Dr. Elizabeth Corey about the dangers of splitting society into smaller and smaller fragments.
5:20 – Why Machines Won’t Replace Us
New technologies are being developed at an incredible pace. Every time we turn around there is a new product or service – typically compatible with a smartphone – that purportedly serves to make our lives easier. But what do these technologies mean for the workforce? Will machines replace us? We talk with Dr. Jay Richards.
