Max Mueller, Why We Stay: What the History of Mormonism Reveals About the Origins of “Race” “Mormon culture. It also made me curious about the history that created such a culture—a culture that is welcoming and loving but can be/is often rigid, patriarchal, tribal, and reluctant to change….More broadly, the take-home message is that, in many ways, the Mormon race story is the American race story. It is story of an ideology of equality—but one that has not only never been realized, but for a period of time, also served to exclude, sequester, enslave, and even kill racialized others.
….And only after the Bible and the Quran, it’s the third most reproduced religious text in the world….Trump’s election woke me up to white supremacy’s enduring hold on our society. “ read

Allie Conti, The Fundamentalists Holding Us Back from a Climate Change Solution “PPhilip Schwadel is a sociologist at the University of Nebraska who studies how Americans’ attitudes about religion and politics change from generation to generation. For a study published in April, he reviewed decades of polling data to try and figure out the most likely predictor for thinking that global warming was not a major problem. Schwadel concluded that biblical literalism—or the belief that the Bible is the word of God —is what’s keeping Americans from an agreement to fight climate change.” read
Randall Balmer, Under Trump, evangelicals show their true racist colors “The statistics tell one story: 81% of white evangelicals voted for Donald Trump. The deafening silence from leaders of the religious right in the wake of the neo-Nazi violence in Charlottesville, Va., points to an even larger one, which places racism at the very heart of the movement…..What does it tell us when businessmen demonstrate a greater moral resolve than ministers?” read
