Anthea Butler: Roe V. Wade, Toxic Patriarchy, and White Evangelicals

So much is happening this summer, whether it be Roe V. Wade being overturned, the justice department looking into the Southern Baptist Convention’s investigation into clergy sexual abuse, or the continued groans of change within White Evangelicalism.

Dr. Anthea Butler

So, who thought it was a good idea to host an interview with a leading scholar on all these topics? I’ll confess, it was all me.

However, when allowed to sit down with Dr. Anthea Butler for the second time in the middle of pivotal summer of change, the best thing is to ask a few relevant news questions, sit back, and listen.

Dr. Butler is the Professor in American Social Thought Chair of Religious Studies at the University of Pennsylvania. She has appeared on BBC, MSNBC, CNN, The History Channel, and PBS. She has also contributed to The New York Times, The Washington Post, CNN, NBC, and The Guardian. She is the author of several books, including “The Rise of the New Religious Right” and “White Evangelical Racism.”

  1. As a long-time former supporter of the CBF, I never dreamed there would come a time when the CBF would succumb to “wokeism”, and anti-white racism, But that time is here.
