Join the Elon Center for the Study of Religion, Culture, and Society at 7:30 p.m. in LaRose Digital Theater for an interesting panel discussion.
Have you ever heard people talk about someone being “God’s candidate”? Or, have you received mailers describing a particular political figure as “antichrist” or characterizing a particular policy as being “biblical”?
Join the Elon Center for the Study of Religion, Culture, and Society September 19, 7:30-9:00, in LaRose Digital Theater (Koury 101) for an interesting panel discussion. Four engaging scholars, including Elon’s own Tom Mould (Sociology/ Anthropology) and Jeffrey Pugh (Religious Studies), will be offering their perspectives on how believers employ revealed knowledge, especially in the political sphere. Kelly J. Baker, Lecturer in American Religion at University of Tennessee-Knoxville and Jason Bivins, Professor of Religion at NC State, will be joining us as well. This should be an enlightening conversation as we move toward November and hear more and more religious rhetoric employed in conversations about political candidates and ideas.
