Church & Politics

Nathan OUTloud

Sep 26 2020 • 18 mins

Religion and politics are two topics that we are told that we should avoid discussing, but in this episode of Nathan OUTloud I am facing them both head-on. The Season Two premiere of Nathan OUTloud comes about eight years since the last episode was released. I set aside the light and cheery tone of previous episodes to discuss the real issues being faced by the LGBTQ+ community at the hands of organized religion and the Republican Party. I share my experience of alienation and gaslighting from growing up in a Mormon and Republican family. Links to articles and movies that I mention in the episode: “The Mormon Church Is Gaslighting the LGBTQ+ Community” by Kat Kellermeyer: https://www.out.com/commentary/2019/9/19/mormon-church-gaslighting-lgbtq-community (https://www.out.com/commentary/2019/9/19/mormon-church-gaslighting-lgbtq-community) “11 Warning Signs of Gaslighting” by Stephanie A. Sarkis Ph.D.: https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/here-there-and-everywhere/201701/11-warning-signs-gaslighting (https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/here-there-and-everywhere/201701/11-warning-signs-gaslighting) For the Bible Tells Me So: http://www.forthebibletellsmeso.org/indexc.htm (http://www.forthebibletellsmeso.org/indexc.htm) For They Know Not What They Do: https://www.fortheyknow.org (https://www.fortheyknow.org) Thank you for listening!
