Why I Left the Right: How Studying Religion Made Me a Liberal
Susie Meister

Susie, Do you regret your talks on staying “pure” in this “sinful” world? Do you see any value in the teachings of “simple laypeople”? I was thinking that some of the folks Jesus called into ministry were described as such.Jesus did call for non-judgment, but he did tell the woman accused of adultery to “go and sin no more.” So do you think that implies he was addressing the behavior? I am confused about the Pew Research. What exactly what is it referring to when it says “tradition?” Have you read Kirsten Powers book, “ The Silencing”? When you referrred to academia being skewed to the left I didnot know if you believed that or not. Do you think to “sell their possessions” is a mandate liberals have taking more seriously? or rather is it just interpreted as taxation?It was stated Christians often choose the policy over the person,

how do other people choose? Or was the point, they say one thing but might do another? I do see differences in the roles of government vs. my individual role as a follower of Christ.I agree we should all take our inspiration in the life of Christ.
