A Voice in the Wilderness In Defense of "Mere Conservatism"


Jonathan Merritt

In the cheerful spirit of engaging the "other side" when it comes to political and cultural issues, The RJ Moeller Show is proud to present our conversation with author and commentator Jonathan Merritt.

img_3797cJonathan is best know for his 2010 book Green Like God: Unlocking the Divine Plan for Our Planet, and we wanted to have Mr. Merritt on specifically to talk about his latest effort, A Faith of Our Own: Following Jesus Beyond the Culture Wars.  Jonathan is a thoughtful evangelical voice in the public square, and despite being on opposite sides of various political issues as R.J., the two engage in what we hope will be the first of many fruitful dialogues.

As he humorously puts it on his own website (jonathanmerritt.com), "you can follow Jonathan, but only on Twitter," at @jonathanmerritt!

The rest of this week's episode welcomes back The Gang's full roster for the first time in months.  Joe, Brandon, Drew, and R.J. reflect on the strange senate saga in Massachusetts involving Democratic candidate Elizabeth Warren's Native American heritage.  They also dissect a scandalous story out of Miami-Dade county where it appears that roughly 300 brand-new Toyota hybrids were "lost" in a parking garage for nearly 6 years.

What is “Mere Conservatism”?

The basic ideas, ideals, and values that generally define and characterize the central tenets of what today might be termed "modern conservative thought."

We believe that a proper understanding of history, economics, and theology leads to certain conclusions. Many of these are the same conclusions our Founding Fathers arrived at in constructing a "more perfect union."

All ideas and opinions are welcome; not all are correct.
