Religion and Social Change: Ecofeminist, Buddhist, and Queer Theologies of Liberation
Religion and Social Change: Ecofeminist, Buddhist, and Queer Theologies of Liberation. Wed., April 28 at 7:30 – 9:00 pm
We continue to explore some of the many ways people have used religion and theology as liberating forces to crack open structures of oppression. For example, An ecological understanding of both relationships among humans (men and women, colonizers and colonized, rich and poor) and the human relationship to the rest of the earth helps us to move beyond a theology of domination. The “queering” of theology helps us to transcend narrow categories that we impose upon God as well as ourselves. And “Engaged Buddhism,” integrating the wisdom of liberation theology, helps us to transform anger into freedom. Writers such as Marcella Althaus-Reid, Ivone Gebara, Sallie McFague, Lama Rod Owens, Rosemary Radford Ruether, and angel Kyodo williams introduce us to these and other exciting ideas.
