Greetings and Welcome to Leftist Propaganda!
The purpose of this blog is to open up topics for discussion, that may be too "taboo" otherwise. Often times, politics and religion are viewed as untouchable. You aren't supposed to talk about them at the dinner table, or family reunions...but why? Religion shapes worldviews and beliefs, likewise, politics shapes innumerable aspects of daily life, so why are they off the table? I think that it has something to do with the fear of being wrong, or the fear of change. I am a Christian, but I am only a Christian because I was an atheist who allowed open dialogue about my beliefs. When pressed with hard questions, I was forced to reevaluate. That's not to say that Christianity is ultimately correct (that is a topic coming in a future blog), but rather that we must always be ready to question our beliefs, even those we hold most dear.
I have said all this (I know, it was quite a bit) to say that anyone who reads my posts should come with an open mind. I am open to debate and discussion, but it is important that you read the whole thing from an objective perspective! I have put together a list of the first 8 topics, and will try to post them every week between Monday and Wednesday. They range from opinion pieces to research/essay style reports. I will list them here below; If anyone has a topic they would like me to write about, please send it to me via firstname.lastname@example.org and I will consider writing on it!
Week 3- The Decline of Christianity: How toxic fundamentalism is failing to reach the next generation
Week 4- The Future is Female- A case for feminism
Week 5- Which is the Greater Crisis of Our Time: poverty and income inequality or environmental destruction and climate change
Week 6- Let's Get Smart About Guns: A liberal's suggestion for solving the gun crime epidemic...without taking everyone's guns
Week 7- Jesus' Heart: What the Bible says about LGBTQ+ people, and why the Christian community must open its doors to us
Week 8- This is Crazy! A look at the mental health crisis in America
Week 9- Series Beginning: Everyday Apologetics Part 1 of 6- How can evil and suffering be reconciled with the existence of an omnibenevolent God?
In closing, thank you for reading (sorry for the informality) and I hope to interact with you in the future!
Peace and Love- God Bless,
