Maps and Terrains, Ideas and Realities
The General Eclectic Podcast #27
Kale is joined today by Dr. Larry Chapp, blogger and retired professor, in discussing Ross Douthat’s latest piece at First Things. The mid-century inspired accommodation between Catholicism and American liberal democracy is fraying, so that the existing “liberal” and “conservative” camps no longer appear operative. Emergent are four basic subgroups: populists, integralists, benedictines, and tradinistas. Larry and Kale go to discuss why the old friction-less detente is in need of an upgrade, and why the message of faith must recapture the goodness, the essential attractiveness, of the Good News. Enjoy.
