Christian theology animates leftist political action. A conversation among socialists, the Christian Left, fellow travelers and beloved comrades.


Alyssa Aldape - Latina Fire and Why Simone Biles Should be Celebrated

Alyssa Aldape, Casey's friend from way back, talks about her experience of being a Latina in leadership of predominantly white churches. The conversation includes immigration under Obama, Trump and Biden and what it means for the church to welcome the stranger (it's much simpler than you might think). We talk about why political representation is meaningless for people still impacted by immoral immigration policies.

We also discuss the 2021 Olympics. From absurd reactions to Simone Biles' withdraw from the team competition for her mental health to Sha'Carri Richardson's exclusion from competition due to marijuana use, this Olympics is really putting racism and sexism on full display.
