Do you see, at any point, the current iteration of evangelicals / fundamentalists letting go of being anti gay marriage? It seems to me, from the outside, as though it has become less of a hill to die on for them in the last several years. (Disclosure: this issue, and women's issues, are my hill to die on.)
We have @cstroop for about another 5 minutes. So I wanted to thank you, Chris, for taking time out of your busy schedule to talk to us. I have really enjoyed the information you've provided us and hopefully we (FJ) can put together some plans for archiving things like we do for the fundies we follow. It's been very educational (and terrifying)! Please feel free to stop by and post anytime you wish
How do the folks that are rabidly pro-embryo/fetus reconcile being pro death penalty and not caring about children after they are born. We often see families that have eleventy kids, but refuse any kind of govt help even though they could obviously use it badly. They often go on about how bad single mothers are, but they don't want to help those women keep their babies with resources.
Curious posted a question in Chris Stroop (1.26.17)This question was asked by @PraiseDog who is not available during the Q&A time. I'd like to ask him how he feels his experience as a former fundamentalist influenced him or prepared him to go on to become an expert in Russian language and culture, and what parallels and differences he finds between the two cultures. It seems like the Russian people are more outwardly accepting of authoritarianism than we tend to exhibit, so it seems like a place where religious fundamentalism could have taken hold, if not for their government's religious regulations, including kind of a "frenemy" relationship between the government and the Orthodox church. But at the same time, the Russian people seem to have an underlying cynicism/sadness/snarkiness towards most institutions (or maybe just towards life itself.) This is just an impression I got when I was lucky enough to visit there in the 70's (on a highly regimented tour, of course) but maybe that's changed in recent years - are younger Russians flocking back to the Orthodox church, or do they consider it just another institution? Or are they looking for, or finding, something else to believe in?
