Sunday Night Odds and Ends

A few things online that caught my attention this week:

The rise of the “nones.”

America’s “cultural civil war

The problem with “tidying up.”

Does liberal democracy require the religion be banished from politics?

Crazy Eddie R.I.P.

Continental history

Edward Everett and the path of moderation

Martin Luther wouldn’t have recognized Trump as a Christian any more than the pope would.

Debating civic education

Alexander Hamilton: Has the musical eclipsed the man himself?

American conservatism and the problem of populism

Team Trump

We don’t believe in curses

Mexican-American history in Texas

Lin Manuel-Miranda: Latino Public Intellectual

Teaching history with objects

Evangelical “third ways

One thought on “Sunday Night Odds and Ends

  1. Martin Luther wouldn’t have recognized Trump as a Christian any more than the pope would.

    Luther wouldn’t have recognized Trump as a Christian any more than the pope would. Trump’s good works didn’t lead to righteousness, and if he is indeed a Christian, no good works have flowed from that commitment.

    I would find this offensive even if it were written about Bill Clinton, whom it also fits.
