Christians, Sex, and Politics: An American History

Lecture Description

Sex is at the heart of many of the most contentious issues of our deeply divided age. This lecture analyzes the roots of today’s fractured politics, revealing how they result from a century-long conflicts over sexuality and gender roles–not just between religious and secular people, but among American Christians. It also explores how political figures such as Donald Trump, Josh Hawley, and many others have risen to power by exploiting misogyny compounded by racism and xenophobia.
