Cancel Culture was the Macquarie Dictionary’s word of the year in 2019, it is arguably just as relevant today. How to Christians relate to this approach – is it a justified response to error, or a pernicious practice that avoids Godliness?
With All Due Respect hosts Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit take a long, hard look at cancel culture. Is there a place for it in the Christian community?
Beginning with a discussion about the nature of cancel culture and how they have experienced it in their own lives, the WADR team move on to an in-depth interview with American author, speaker, blogger and former podcaster Aimee Byrd who has experienced the worst this approach to disagreement has to offer.
Then it’s off to the movies for a cancel culture take on the 2005 film Goodnight and Good Luck, which considers the walls of silence erected during the McCarthy era.
WHAT IS WITH ALL DUE RESPECT?
Less aggro, more conversation.
Is it even possible to have a deep discussion without it descending into chaos? Michael Jensen and Megan Powell du Toit think yes, and want to show the rest of us how to do it.
There’s plenty of things they disagree on: free will, feminism, where you should send your kids to school and what type of church you should go to. But there are also plenty of other things that they have in common. They want to talk about all these things with conviction. But they also want the conversation to be constructive. Tune in to find out if that’s possible.
