Racist Church

EPISODE: 37

Racist Church

With Jemar Tisby & Brooke Prentis

Racist Church

Some would argue that Christianity itself is racist. Given the sweep of history, this is a charge that has to be confronted.

So we’re going to speak to a couple of people who, despite all the things the church has done wrong — and continues to do wrong — and despite all the things the church should be doing but just isn’t – still see Christ as Lord. They are still part of the church. They still think Christianity is beautiful, even if parts of the church are not.

You as listeners – whether you believe or not – are going to have to be the judges here.

This is not an episode in which I feel competent to lecture anyone. I don’t know what it’s like to be a minority. That’s why we’re speaking to people today who do know.
