"The smithsonian is temporarily closing all of its museums starting november twenty third because of growing concerns over the spread of covid nineteen in the region and across the us that means locally eight smithsonian facilities including the national zoo will close dc's covid nineteen seven day average is steadily inching back up to the rate of positive cases. We saw back in may when cases per one hundred thousand people were at their highest in the washington region. To be honest. This news is giving me deja-vu in the worst way the trend is signaling more tough days ahead as thousands more people are infected with the virus and as many people consider their thanksgiving plans officials across the region have asked residents to limit and gathering in large groups for the holidays or to avoid it altogether if they can maryland and virginia have already increased restrictions to try and stop the spread of covid in dc mayor. Muriel bowser says new restrictions are coming soon next. Jonathan wilson talks will wmu's alley schweitzer about the washington regions multibillion dollar construction industry and how labor advocates are increasingly concerned about wage theft. Allie tells us about a new lawsuit accusing one firm of stealing from workers. We'd really love it if you would fill out. An audience survey helpless. Learn more about you and how you listen to consider this and other. Npr programming visit npr dot org slash dc survey to complete the questionnaire. That's npr dot org slash dc survey and. Thanks welcome alley. Hi jonathan glad to be here. Let's start at the beginning. Where else tell us what wage theft actually means. I mean is it an employer actually stealing a worker's earnings or or is it something more complicated. I mean in fact yeah i mean. That's what wage steph really means but employers that commit often do it in a somewhat sophisticated and hard to detect way and one of the most common ways is what's called misclassification that's when an employer categorizes a worker as an independent contractor instead of a full time employee and that deprives the employees of minimum wage protections time pay workers compensation you know all these benefits and protections that are afforded to please but not independent contractors. So why does it happen. Why do employers miss classify workers. It's a way to cut labor costs plain and simple. I mean we hear about this. A lot in the world of tech power transportation and food delivery like with uber and door dash and the like which a face legal challenges over this issue but the incentive to miss classify workers is also very strong in the construction industry. And that's because subcontractors compete for work through a bidding process if they can lower their cost of labor they can submit a cheaper bid to a general contractor and that may increase their chances of winning that contract but misclassification is illegal in dc. You're considered an employee if you meet certain criteria like if your boss tells you when to arrive at work and how to do your job. Independent contractors are truly independent and employees are not employers that miss classify workers in this way are subject to actually pretty stiff penalties in the district. Alright so let's turn to this specific lawsuit. It accuses a major local construction company of wage theft. What's the company. And what is the suit alleged that it did. The suit is a class. Action filed over the summer by a firm representing workers for subcontractors of the company cb g. It's a very large construction firm. Based in northern virginia one of the leading builders of luxury and mixed use development in this region and nationally so the two named plaintiffs in the suit say they worked for a couple of different subcontractors on. Cbj construction sites in the city. This year they say the subcontractors miss classified them pay them less than minimum wage and denied the overtime and cbgb's is the defendant because dc holds general contractors and subcontractors both liable for violations of wage and hour laws. Have we gotten a response from cbj. Cbj did not respond to my request for comment. The company also has not filed a response in court but they still have a couple of weeks to do so. Let's talk about the plaintiffs. Who are the workers that are suing. Cg so in addition to the two named plaintiffs in the suit both of whom are immigrant laborers who have worked for c. g. subcontractors this year there could be hundreds of workers who are eligible to join the class action because cbj just does that much work in the city. All right so we got a lawsuit. I'm sure they're going after some sort of remedy. So what are the worker seeking well. In addition to payment of wages. They believe they're entitled to damages. Things like that one of the plaintiffs told me his name. Is ivanka studio that. He wanted to bring this suit to break. The silence he says is really common in these situations. Many workers affected by misclassification are immigrants. Some may be undocumented. They don't always come forward with allegations like this because they fear losing their jobs or even being reported immigration all right allie. Schweitzer is with wmu's affordability desk. Thanks for joining us anytime. And you can read alley story about the wage theft lawsuit at d. c. dot com and wmu dot org. Thanks for joining us for consider this from npr. Listen again next time. And we'll make sense of the major stories happening in the washington region and elsewhere in your world. I'm rachel courteous..

"So so Jonathan's message is all about coming together as a collective of people who are motivated by the Gospel by our religious values to stand stand up for what is right. And that's exactly what he was doing and Charlotte North Carolina was hosting an event with a bunch of different leaders. Religious leaders. Community organizers organizers in Charlotte who are working to make Charlotte a better city to more just city a city that is more inclusive equitable and so part of what I did was I went to that event. I got to speak with some people there and here Jonathan has influenced their life. My name is tiny. What's your Moran? And what brings you to see. John Hart grow well so I actually just got done. Leading a couple of book studies on Reconstructing The Gospel with a group two groups of women At My congregation in Rock Hill so the timing was perfect uh-huh and we have been beautifully impacted by his work Um and really can displace of being laid bare. Oban can dealing with the ones that we all bring to the table. We all up in the south so we all carry that history and part of what was so beautiful about about both of these groups is that they were highly generational and so actually. I'm waiting on three women to join me now who are retired schoolteachers and I was able to meet these three ladies. The Marin is talking about first time podcasting woes. I wasn't able to get them on the microphone even though they were totally open to interviewing with me but the work that they're doing together in a little small group is really important. I'm so grateful for people like Marin who are bringing people together to have these really important conversations. Sometimes it's really easy and I know in reconstructing the Gospel. Jonathan writes about this really beautifully. It's really easy to band aid over these things and think that we're going to have some kind of ministry that's GonNa fix it And there's this two fold piece that happens right. There's this really looking at ourselves. And what are the ways that we go through the world doing harm not realizing it because we carry these histories stories with us But then also what are the ways that we did this work in communicating with one another and those two things have to happen simultaneously. What do you think are some of the ways is that you're doing that and that people can't do? I think we're in. We're exploring at think for a long time we've bandaid. We've done the whole disband date over worried pretend like it's all okay And so I think that's part of what drew particularly this ladies to come tonight They're kind of in that place of being late filling pretty bare and laid open in the middle of it and filling a little lost in that and I think that's an okay. Take place to be like even right now as we're heading admit like it's okay to fill a little Austin it and I think that's where we're at we're feeling lost in it and that's totally. Okay so you say your name is Marin thank you. You're welcome. It was pretty cool getting to see all of the different folks that filled that have room to see Jonathan Wilson Heart Grove and each of them has been impacted by Jonathan's work in some way. I'm sure that many of them have stories like Morenz. When Jonathan spoke he said a lot of the things that we already talked about earlier during our interview and he gave the same call to action? That it's time that we have this revolution of values that we move forward that something has to give there there. Was this one part during the event that really stick with me actually right at the beginning after Jonathan had introduced the folks from Charlotte who were joining him to talk about this revolution of values how we could leverage our faith and our privileged to do good work. Jonathan paused and invited the entire room to join him in song. She says when we get together we need to sing because the point one of the song is to get to the singing and the point of the singing is to make us into a community and so I think if we're going to have a community conversation it might help us to sing a a little bit. So let's sing the song that goes God by feed while this real a I wanNA thank you. The pod is hosted by Kobe. Long and me nate up if you want to.

"So although Jonathan Wilson Hargrove spins a great deal of his time and energy critiquing the religious riot speaking truth to power and although he knows that he is standing in opposition to what is considered mainstream Christianity not to be confused with mainline Christianity. I mean the largest non-catholic denomination in the United States is the Southern Baptist denomination which you know has some pretty pretty hefty ties to the things that Jonathan Wilson Hargrove is critiquing. John knows he's going up against those things but even though he knows that he is still hopeful. He's still hopeful that this message that is at the core of the Gospel to stand up for the poor and the disenfranchised that that message can take hold and Christians can be empowered to live that out all around the country. I am hopeful because I have seen people coming together together. Building New Coalition of folks who are determined to work for a moral agenda in public and immoral agenda that lifts up the poor that guarantees access to health care and the things that people need. I've seen those people coming together in places where people usually don't get involved in politics. So that's where I'm I'm hopeful right now because in just a couple of weeks ago in Kentucky three counties in the eastern part of Kentucky Kentucky really flipped the governor's race and I've been in those counties and I know those people and they're all coal miners are used to be Cohen families. Most of them are white They all go to church on Sunday. Morning if they can get there and they have been themselves organizing around Putting their faith into practice I have no doubt that that could change the landscape of this country. Because without a Christian nationalist base not not only is there no donald trump. There's no Coalition that would back a pro corporate agenda. That hurts most people right. This has been the way. They've held their coalition together and so a both parties would have to change if just five to ten percent of those people who have just completely dropped out of the political process engaged around these issues. It's the last election twenty eight percent of people who could vote vote voted for Hillary Clinton twenty six percent people who voted for Donald Trump. Forty percent didn't vote and they didn't vote because they didn't see any agenda that that motivated them or they felt like would make that much of a difference so that's where I'm hopeful I'm hopeful in a p people from that forty percent getting engaged and I. I see that happening through the work that I've been with the poor people's campaign so it's a it's a way that a revolution values can become real and concrete in active participation of a broad coalition of people and people who talk about their faith whatever it is some description fates sometimes Muslims Muslims who who are part of a faith tradition but but but do have a conviction that there is a there is a morality. -ality right th. There's a morality that suggests that what's happening is is just wrong right. It's not that it's Republican our that. It's a conservative agenda. It's no it's that something's happening. That's wrong and we've got to work together to change a system that would allow this. It's kind of wrong some canes job than I hear everything that you're saying can actually do tomorrow to go out make this possible. Do this is work organization poor people's campaign on what what what can I do whether the poor people's campaign is made up of Really thousands of grassroots organizations around the country now because there are forty three different state based coalitions and in some of this coalition have hundreds of local groups that have joined them. This is what I know about those groups and everybody can find one in their community. Those groups are groups of people who are directly cle- impacted by something right the cold lashes in their water. The police officers are killing their children. The federal government is taking their land in just talking to these folks out in Arizona about this in a land swap deal. Where'd heard the holiest place for this native American community down there has been sold out from under them to this multinational corporation so people directly impacted by that WHO are working on an issue and an issue that matters to them because it's going to impact them and their kids and their community but then you know? They realized that if if they're going to make a difference on that they're gonNA have to connect with other people. I think the best way in is to find out what impacts you or people you know and love where you are get involved in that group and then connect that up with. What's impacting other? Because because what we see over and over and over is that the same towers that are denying healthcare like we were talking about earlier are also so fighting against living wages are also privatizing schools in ways that are we segregating them right are also you know giving corporations uh-huh breaks that are allowing for the gentrification and just sort of demolition of of whole neighborhoods in our cities so issue after issue. We're up against the same and those people who think they're serving their own interests. Even though I don't believe they are. They think they are. They're a pretty small minority right. They know that they can't be he in power and they can't set the agenda The impacts everybody else without convincing people that they don't share interest right and so the whole history of this kind of politics has been one of divide and conquer. You have to split up. You have to tell you no Christian folks that gave folks who their enemy you have to sell black folks White Folks Brown folks at the black votes that there's always these issues wage issues to try to use to split people up to keep uh-huh uh-huh finding one another so the people don't come together and say you know at the end of the day on a lot of these issues. We share common interests. The majority of the Great Majority Jordy of us do is and we need to build power together in order in public life to promote.

"There's also a crisis in terms of the perception Christianity In public life that you know you ask people people. What does it mean to be Christian What does it mean to be somebody who follows? Jesus the the number one answer to that question is to be anti-gay eh. This politicization of Christianity has led to Christianity being perceived as this sort of exclusive faith that creates a kind of self righteousness. And all of that to me suggests is that that we're not only in a bad political space. We're really in a terrible cultural moment for For Christianity to be at its best can be which is good news to the world and so And so I think I wrote this book on Revolution of values because I have have witnessed among poor in rejected people Who are trying to advocate for their families that have been separated for their voting being rights for healthcare for Some action to stave off the ecological destruction that our whole economy has Catapulted restored and all those things. I've met these people who have a faith with that inspires me and I think offers hope to the church. So revolutionary values is a kind of As a kind of call for people full of faith people in churches to To to recognize that there is good news for us us for our institutions and for the world. But it's going to mean a real transformation of where we look for direction of where we find our way forward and I think God has already given us a lot But we've we've largely overlooked even in our you know so-called liberal or progressive spaces. You know where we think we've got things right on this or that issue. We've still failed to listen to WHO and receive the gifts of you know in my read. The people who are doing the most to show us what faith is and I think as a way of reclaiming the tradition right so the psalm that says the stones of the builders rejected a become the chief cornerstones. Right the Ezekiel's vision Asian the that the bones of the people who've been chewed up by the system can be brought together to raise up a you know a new people. That's where I see promise in life for the future. Only the of the church but for the future of a healthy society and that's what I wanted to share with this revolution of values and to really give people a resource to have a conversation around on how we can live out our faith in public life. What we're doing here tonight having that conversation because as much as I want to tell some of these stories I also want people to realize that like this? His faith already exists among us part of the challenges that the narrative of the religious right has marginalized that kind of practice. That's right so that so that to be a you know to be a politically engaged or publicly engage. Religious person was only to be Somebody who's either advocating for the Republican Party or protesting abortion clinic and And you know the only quote unquote religious freedom issues are these questions of whether You can claim a religious exemption to deny somebody some civil right. That doesn't line up with your understanding. So that's a very narrow definition of what it means to live out faith and so what I'm trying to encourage in. Our churches is for us to get together and talk about what we value right. Talk about what matters to who else because of our faith and to talk about who that connects us to and how we're working with those people in our communities to lift up the the the good of the whole because while these megachurches you know like Jolo sting hosting Kanye West with this. You Know Paula White. Who's now the Religious liaison for the White House like this kind of sort of superstar. Christianity gets all the play in terms of like what we pay attention into on the news or in public but the vast majority of Christians do not worship that way most people who go to church go to a church that has about one hundred members every Sunday and most of those people are not extremists. Don't buy into this whole thing. Most of them are deeply engaged in their community. They've got a food bank. They've got you know some thing that ties them in with what's actually going on. And they want to live out their faith and I want that to be represented in the ways that we talk about faith in the ways being gauge publicly. So that's a lot of what this book is about and I see those people engaging through the poor people's campaign all over the country in a a little churches hosting the local environmental group of the local labor union and Folks really connecting that with if this story that they gather to sing and pray and proclaim every Sunday.

"I I would like your God. We won't your political reality to come here on Earth as it is in heaven. How do you pray that and then say well? The Gospel is about your relationship with God. And you get your politics somewhere else. Unfortunately a lot of us hear the cries of those those who are hurting not as God hears them but we hear them as a we hear them as a threat to our own existence. There are a lot of people who hear black lives matter and they immediately in defense belies matter all lives matter. My life matters as if saying black lives matter is a suggestion. Adjust your life doesn't matter no. The cry of people who are suffering from injustice is not a cry that says we want to destroy you. Do It's really a cry that says to unjust systems. Please stop throwing us. And if if we want to be God's people I think we have to join with that cry and understand that that's where God shows up always always God is is most present in the places where people are crying out for. Justice are receiving by the power the Holy Spirit. The good news that another world is possible. That's where God is. I'm sure of it. I've seen it so many times and sometimes that makes it into buildings that are cultured when it does great churches happening. But I'm absolutely sure that got US president then. I'm not always sure.

And take note of how how inspiring Jonathan's story is especially for those of us who grew up and eventually cook communities that have been so influenced by right wing politics. The way that he speaks speaks about faith as a motivator to fight for the poor and marginalized. These are things that make me proud to call myself a Christian Miss. Probably why during this interview you hear me over and over again a yeah. Yeah Yes yes yes yes being with. Jonathan was like sitting in the front row of church. Church at that that. But here's the deal when it comes to American Christianity when it comes to the American Christian Landscape Today Jonathan's thins message isn't the one that is preached from the Mega Church pulpits the churches that hold the most influence and power and a large swath of American churches and American Christians believe truly believe that right wing politics and and Kristen. Nationalism are coherent with the Gospel..

"Hey this is Kobe with thanks. Be To pod and before we get started with today's episode. We just wanted to say thank you for for the immense levels of support that you gave us in two thousand nineteen because of our patrons in our subscribers and people willing to write US reviews views that we were able to do what we did is because of patrons and the connections we made in that community that we were able to go to the Q.. Christian Fellowship Conference where we recorded our last episode with KIP which she should check out. If you haven't done so so far okay. You're you're in Charlotte North Carolina Let's see if I can find this place. This is not always a given. That's for sure. Oh here's church if I could find. Yup that didn't take me at all where I wanted to the Okay it's thanks to pod road trip for this episode. A couple of months ago I set out to North Carolina Sorta to my hometown Charlotte. North Carolina grew up. Not Too far away from there to talk doc with Jonathan Wilson Hargrove and the launch of his new book a revolution of values all right. I think we're recording. We don't don't have sound. That would ruin the right thing. We're silence and now we bring you thirty minutes of contemplative silence with Jonathan Wilson. Hargrove just getting I. I was born in stokes county North Carolina Tobacco country. Just down the road from my Momma's people are very Uh and I mean I grew up on bluegrass music and You know country could Kim and Jesus at all together is and that was born in one thousand nine hundred eighty. My birth was announced the Sunday. Say that After Ronald Reagan was elected that fall. And I think what I've realized as have gotten older and become to understand my life in the context of American history is that I was born at just the moment when my people bill became a very strategic target for political organizing. This is why I drove five hours from my home in Virginia to actually sit in a row with Jonathan over the past several years of my life unbeknownst to him. Jonathan has been a theological guide for me like Jonathan. I grew up North Carolina and unlike Jonathan I grew up southern baptist when I was seventeen years old the year before I left for the University of North Carolina. I was convinced that in ten years I was going to be a southern baptist. This preacher conservative to the bone but during my time at UNC the liberals they're as many in my state would refer to them had their way with me. And by the time I left there was a presbyterian who denounced the idea of biblical inherently believed. That women should hold fool pastoral office and worked to see full inclusion of LGBTQ persons in in the church in two thousand and sixteen in the wake of the presidential election. As I tried to make sense of the transition that I made and understand the reasons that others that I loved and cared about didn't crossed the Rubicon. I discovered Jonathan Wilson Hargrove. Someone who has Jonathan would say talked like my people who understood the world that I came from who on the one hand talk highly of his religious heritage and on the other stand is one of its most formidable critics. God God gets to us in all kinds of ways. There ain't no oh perfect way. I'm grateful for the Church. Raise me as an love. It which is why I pushed back as hard as yeah. I can these days on the way. The religious right has manipulated. Churches like was grown in. Because I love those churches but all I knew as a kid you know from the free literature. Our that showed up at the church came in the mail. The the special programs that happened at our church or You you know in the cultural world. We lived in What we heard on Christian? TV Christian radio. was that if you wanted to do all that you could. For Jesus you should get involved in politics. And that only meant Republican politics and The concern was our values and our values were only about abortion and prayer in schools and You know a a sense that the culture was leading US almost three That was what you should get fired up about an rally people around and so A Ah I wanted to do all I could for Jesus houses in Syracuse. So I got involved in it and I became a foot soldier in the culture. Wars and You know worked people local peoples campaigns and then I ended up going to the. US Senate to page for Strom Thurmond. When I was sixteen years old? Yeah that's trump Thurman the segregationist dixiecrats. But it was while working with Strom Thurman that Jonathan's worldview began to change showing up in DC as a ernest sixteen year old. You know ready to put in my time and climbed the ranks the religious right What helped me begin to turn around was that I got to see it all up? Close it pretty quickly became evident to me that there was a lot of wrangling for power and Rangeland for holding on particular agenda There wasn't much of the talk we got back home about values when it came down to actually doing this stuff It was mostly about. Who was trying to get you and and how you can get them back and you know one thing about being a teenager is the world's still pretty black and white and I felt a kind on a visceral reaction to that? I didn't know what an alternative would be. So it's kind of a dead end. I was at the dark into the street. And you know where else are you gonNA go. Jonathan Left Strom Thurmond's office pretty confused thinking. This isn't what I thought it would be. And he returned home to North Carolina with a bunch of questions and thoughts and it was is there that he met leaks. I met William Barber. He introduced me to another way of being Christian which I didn't even know as possible. Yeah no nobody ever told me we. We don't. We talked about Dr King at school to Cadillac. He was just a nice guy. Who you know had helped us sort of brush this past. That was a little bit ugly. You know by that time. The religious right was all already explicitly. coopting King King and Appropriating in the content of our character as sort of a basis for a crusade against Progressive Culture Culture And so yeah it was a it was a real education for me to to meet not just Reverend Barbara but a real all living breathing faith rooted freedom movement even though the work and teaching of Reverend Barber pretty much stood in contrast to everything that Jonathan had and been taught for some reason Jonathan was totally receptive to it. I was even though I didn't understand all that admit I was receptive because I was so desperate. You know I I knew I couldn't keep going with the Religious right that I've been given And so it may take me a long time. I'm still learning all the time about the fullness onus of what it means to live in to the prophetic grace filled no freedom movement that led the Hebrew children out of Egypt raised. Jesus from the dead. You Know Brow Up Enslave folks to freedom in this country and and the civil rights movement in the women's rights movement Labor movement. All those things have educated me in the way people have lived out their faith in all those Ariza's educated me a lot to learn reverend. Wouldn't Barbara had a profound effect on Jonathan's life learning from him began to affect Jonathan and all sorts of different ways the way that he saw. The Gospel began to change the the way that he thought of. Jesus began to change and most importantly probably for southern baptist. The way that Jonathan read the Bible was impacted. William Barber introduced introduced him to a new way of doing it. Started reading the Bible with other people. Right you read the Bible with four people and it all of a sudden becomes clear that A lot of this book is written by poor people and almost all of its written for poor people like it's good news to the poor and and When you read it in context and It makes you reconsider. Whether this whole long story I was just to you know. Get made to kneel down and say one prayer that got my heart rate in. Oh I mean you know if what the little track said was the whole of. It doesn't seem like we'd need the whole book but the book kind of fleshes out a a vision of a whole new world and At the center of that world the Prophets Jesus and all the Apocalypse Ism and everything to me seems to testify that you know the poor or lifted up the marginalized Are brought into communion in a way that transforms the structures of of our life together and This is certainly about how we live our lives as individuals in his family's has a lot to say to that but it's not exclusively about that in some ways it can't be understood to depart from the way we live that out in a broader society. How can you pray every day?.

"By Jonathan Wilson hurt Grove the subtitle reclaiming public faith for the common good this is from the interdiction totale moral clarity and the fog of war. since the late nineteen seventies in American political operatives of invested money and energy in framing the cultural concern of conservative white Christians as the moral issues in our public life this training was the explicit agenda of many of the organizations the builder religious right but it's become commonplace across political and religious divides in America's public square but do you agree with them or not conservative white evangelical serve as the spokespersons for morality on the evening news this was not always the case just half a century of the most famous religious leader in America was the Reverend doctor Martin Luther king junior in the context of the civil and human rights movement of the nineteen sixties voting rights equal protection under the law economic justice peace and the environment were widely recognized as moral issues Americans from different racial and religious groups certainly do not agree and how to address these issues but they were consistently addressed as moral issues I grew up in the southern Baptist church in the nineteen eighties and nineteen nineties during the heyday of the moral majority movement and emergent emergence of the Christian coalition both of which mobile as conservative white evangelicals to join the Republican Party and hold on to quote traditional values in that context I learn to understand myself as a Christian at war with the dominant culture. anxious that our way of life was passing away as the world around us became more diverse my white evangelical culture taught me to turn to the Bible for solace and direction. as in any battle are are you our leaders argued about strategy should we seek political power to influence legislation or try to influence popular culture should we engage more in public life a retreat to spaces where we can avoid the caught the cultures corrupting influence should we attempt to use culture try to change culture or even build a counter culture these questions animated a lively debate within white evangelicals as Evangelista schism for decades but I miss the back and forth about strategy and tactics most people came to agree that Americans were in fact and war James Davison hunter a sociologist into into the ways leads in institutions were shaping public conversations in the late twentieth century name the phenomena in his nineteen ninety four book culture wars quote America is in the midst of a culture war that has had and will continue to have reverberations not only with in public life but within the lives of ordinary Americans everywhere and quote describing the institutions that are lined up across from one another in American public life hunter noted the historic divisions in the nation had shifted religious people no longer divided themselves along the denominational lines in a shape public engagement for most of American history increasingly hunter observed Americans saw themselves on one side or the other of the war before between traditional morality and progressive values this wasn't just about left versus right and politics of the culture wars inevitably shaped where people stood with regard to partisan issues the divide between or the guy orthodoxy in progressivism was more fundamental hunter hunter argued people any side increasingly understood their way of seeing the world as fundamentally incompatible with their enemies across the battle line in the realignment that hundred described Americans who look to the Bible for moral authority whereas to line up against progressive values and policy proposals this ought to expand rights and alleviate poverty in the name of defending traditional morality in a biblical worldview I was taught to fight against policy proposals that were advocated by marginalized invulnerable sisters and. brothers who were crying out for justice in public life on the front lines of the culture war many who had committed to follow Jesus as lord realized we had been deployed to fight against the people through whom Jesus promised to be present in Matthew twenty five. how did white Christian nationalist rest America's public moral narrative away from the civil rights movement and persuade many people of faith to defend white cultural values in the name of Jesus this question has haunted me since as a young man on my way out of the religious right I met black Christians who taught me another way of following Jesus in public. twenty years later after the election of Donald Trump I wrote reconstructing the gospel finding freedom from slaveholder religion to say that to say what I had learned from the black let freedom movement about how white identity politics distorted American Christianity's understanding of everything from personal salvation to share public witness. but as I taught that long history in churches and seminaries across the country I quickly realize that slaveholder religions more recent impact on American public life was the pressing concern not only for Christian struggling to understand public witness but also for the wider American public the simply could not comprehend a white Christians who claim to be concerned about morality could stand by a president who is so obviously an egregiously immoral I wrote those this book both for those who share my experience in white Christian institutions and for the many who do not because the false moral narrative of the tradition I was raised in as impacted everyone caught up in the American story revolution of values is a search for clarity on behalf of the people who lost our way in the midst of the culture wars such confusion was not uncommon in the fog of war veterans remind us a sensitive and discerning judgment is called for Carl von Clausewitz writes in his famous treatise on war a skilled intelligence to send out the truth my methodology has been to set up the truth what happened to phase in public life by examining the political and economic interests that invested in winning the political

It's it's high intensity a motion that the likes of which we haven't seen best be honest in this competition in the last few years that has swung round on. We're starting to see more regularly some of those Real Madrid Athletico Madrid finals were truly riveting. We they were riveted, but they weren't like day this. There was just an unexpected nature to the way these games played out that adds an element. That is just I think the fact that once upon a time is Jonathan Wilson tweeted, I remember time when a three gold lead mattered going into second leg. And those those are. You know, what I was going to say it still does matter. I mean more often than not even today when you have a three goal lead. You do advance. We just remember the ones where you going one goal behind and making it into a three goal lead and having to climb that mountain within an hour of football a couple of housekeeping things before we get into the games. Like we've been saying for the last couple of weeks five stars for five years five year anniversary go on our our I tunes. Give us a five star review and in your five star review. If you have a favorite moment from the five year run of the podcast put it in there. And then starting next week.

"Democratic Virginia governor around north will not resign over that racist photo in his medical school yearbook. The governor is telling Democrats in the state that he doesn't think it's him in the picture, even though he took responsibility for the photo. Just yesterday north is expected to speak to reporters later this afternoon back with me, Sirius XM host Mark Thompson joining the conversation now Jonathan Wilson heart grove, author of reconstructing the gospel, and Jonathan thank you so much for being flexible. We initially booked you to talk about this this idea that Donald Trump was sent by God, which was picked up this week when the his spokesperson essentially said he was on a mission from God. But I think it's still important to have you here because there's a thing that's going on right now where we're re-litigating our past are the slave era passed and the Jim crow passed through pictures, and you talk a lot about the fact that that is interwoven even into our religion that we haven't been able to shed that slaveholding pass and that as much as we want to ignore it. We can't. Let it go. What has been your reaction to just watching this unfold in Virginia? Here. Well, it's Regina. Right. So this is this is the four hundred anniversary of slaved Africans coming being brought to Virginia. And as I see this. You know, now wide spread call for his resignation. I wanna focus on the bigger issue. We often when we talk about racism and a racist past want to point bad actors and say if we can get rid of this person that person we can move on. But no these are system issues. And so if we're going to talk about how people in power are still propping up systems of white supremacy. Let's talk about the policies that are perpetuating mass incarceration the policies that are literally separating families in this country based on a racist notion that this is a white country. And so and I think it's an important point. Because Bishop I'm Barbara was saying saying this the other day as well it ending. He tweeted it that if you are condemning the photo. But you're not condemning caging children and taking away health care. And and the not allowing people to vote based on race. If you're not condemning those two than the condemnation of the photo rings hollow. That was his thought what is yours those right? And this is fundamentally I think about shifting the the moral narrative in our country right for for forty years. Now, we've allowed a very narrow definition of what's moral about this sort of personal actions. Have you ever used the inward or have you ever? Had some sort of sexual infidelity. When as a matter of fact, the moral issues that the bible is concerned about is how we as a people treat the poor how we treat the emigrant how we treat people who are marginalized and excluded in some way, those are biblical values. So as a preacher, I I want to talk about how slaveholders religion has really manipulated the way we understand biblical values in our public life. And this is an opportunity for us to say if we're going to reject that legacy. Let's focus on the values that are at the heart of scripture and of our moral tradition. And within the break. I mean, we had an election in which the candidate for Senate US Senate Mississippi talked about going to the front row of a lynching of a hanging is the way simply put where you had monkeys us. We pretty overt racist, imagery and thought and taught and speeches excessively his at works. Right. And so we're back here. Again, we can't get past here is it because we haven't really talked about it like we can't. Seem to have a real conversation. This country about race. We still have their folks posing in front of confederate flags in back. When this photo was taken. I was watching the dukes of hazzard probably a lot of us watch the dukes of hazzard with general Lebed big old confederate flag right out of the car. And we were like we didn't see there's a lot here. Anything Anything else? else on TV in either a lot of a lot of ways. But you write it rings hollow. If we continue to be reactionary to the little things the coded language. The words the photographs is absolutely true. Our a re with both my fellow clergy that we've got to deal with policy as well.
