Dec 1: This Week at BBUUC

This week at BBUUC….


Dec. 1: Prof. Julie Ingersoll will present “Southern Civil Religion and the Rise of Neo-confederacy.” 

She will trace how we got the “bible belt,” describe the contours of Southern Christian culture and then connect that up with the contemporary manifestations of a “Neo-confederacy.”

About our speaker: Prof. Ingersoll teaches religious studies in the philosophy department at the University of North Florida. She has a particular interest in fundamentalist Christianity, and has written numerous articles on the subject. She has also published two books, Evangelical Christian women: War Stories in the Gender Battles; and Baptist and Methodist Faiths in America. She is now working on a third book, “Building the Kingdom of God: Christian Reconstruction and the Religious Right in America” which will be published by the Oxford University press. Julie has spoken to us twice before.

Lay Leader: Ron Rothberg  Accompanist: Gary Smart
