The Power of Religion: For Oppression and For Liberation
Thursday, December 13th 6:30-8:30
Cedar Commons (2001 Riverside Ave. S, below Trinity offices)
Join us for a meal and conversation as we engage the topic of religion as a tool for perpetuating oppression, as well as a powerful force towards liberation.
* What makes religion so susceptible to use as a tool of violence and control?
* How do organizations with power hijack or manipulate religion to carry out oppression in the name of their faith?
* Why and how does certain theology try to explain away suffering, justify oppression and quell courageous resistance?
* How, instead, can religion fuel the work of liberation?
Hosted by: Augsburg Interfaith Scholars and Interfaith @ Cedar Commons
