Anti-Intellectualism – Separation of Church and Scholarship – 077

Maintaining status quo can be a strong motivation for people in power to suppress questioning and intellectual exploration. Often in church communities we can feel isolated for asking hard questions. Especially questions that challenge long standing ideas and methods. This week Jeff and Mona discuss the many layers surrounding the topic of anti-intellectualism within the church and christianity. They also discuss the polarity created around intellectualism and emotionalism between conservatives and progressives. Closing out the show Jeff and Mona conduct an old fashioned check in.
