Session: Worshipping Trump
10 a.m. Saturday, May 8
White evangelicals face an identity crisis after the Donald Trump presidency. Some would say they made a deal with the devil, undermining any moral high ground for raw power. But not all Evangelicals are Trump die-hards and there are important conversations led by these voices inside the church that are more vital than ever. Join us for this panel discussion with Kristin Kobes Du Mez, the Rev. Rob Schenk, Lenny Duncan and moderator Kirsten Powers.
About the Rev. Rob Schenck
Rev. Rob Schenck is an American evangelical minister and president of The Dietrich Bonhoeffer Institute in Washington, DC. The subject of Abigail Disney’s Emmy Award-Winning documentary, The Armor of Light, Rob broke with his community's embrace of popular gun culture and its resistance to common sense gun regulation, fostering a mutually respectful conversation between opponents on how to reduce gun violence. Similarly, after years as an aggressive anti-abortion activist, he's called for a new approach to the contentious issue. His next project is to help his co-religionists reexamine same-sex marriage bans as they did with rules against the marriage of previously divorced persons.
