Last week the NCC signed on to a statement called, “A Call to Resist Bigotry: A Statement of Faithful Obedience.”  This statement, signed by Christian leaders from wide range of perspectives, addresses the open bigotry that has been a hallmark of Donald Trump’s presidential campaign.

In this episode we will talk with Dr. David Gushee, president-elect of the Society of Christian Ethics, and vice president of the American Academy of Religion, who was one of the drafters of this document.  We will tackle the challenging task of critiquing a popular presidential candidate on the basis of Christian theology and ethics and put Trump’s candidacy in an historical context.
