It’s here! Season 2 has arrived, and we’re going to go back to our roots and look at the basics of the US Constitution by actually using the curriculum that Phil and Kevon use in their classrooms. This week, we cover European philosophy of the Enlightenment era while also touching on the governing structures of ancient Rome and ancient Greece.
Phil and Kevon are so sorry that they have been gone for so long. They will be back in the studio soon. Until they do, here’s some audio from a class Phil taught at his church. The class was based upon Tony Evan’s book How Should Christians Votes?, which we’ve mentioned several times before.
We hope you enjoy this “substitute” episode and will help us by spreading the word as The Ignorance of Church and State gears up for Season 2.
Mentioned in the Episode
How Should Christians Vote? by Tony Evans
Why do we have a two-party system? Hard to say, since George Washington didn’t want us to. Are these two parties part of our government or merely our tradition? How do they emerge? How do they die? What do we do when neither party fits our needs? We’ll try to answer at least half of these questions with at least one-third accuracy.
How do two white guys in the suburbs talk about race? Ignorantly and with a great amount of passion. We hope you can follow along with our jumbled thoughts. We’ll do better next time; we promise.
Once again, the US has had a terrible week, full of senseless violence, anger, hatred, and a increasing amount of division.
Kevon and Phil will have a lot to say about this next week, but for now, let’s look back at a more optimistic moment, when, in August of 1963, Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. delivered his iconic “I Have a Dream” speech.
We hope you find this speech to be inspiring and uplifting, and we hope that the next few days find us beginning the slow process of repairing our nation.
