Welcome to a special bonus episode of the Theology Nerd Podcast with the Dr. Tripp Fuller. This is a shorter Q&A episode, where your friendly, local internet theologian answers questions submitted by you.
Today Tripp is joined by Scott Paeth, professor and ethicist at DePaul University, to help answer your questions, including:
how would you make the best possible case, as a Christian, for supporting Donald Trump?
Scott explains under what circumstances it is preferable to support Trump, discusses how an ethicist look at questions about truth, goodness, justice in our divided religious and political landscape, and why political norms are important. Tripp shares some of the reasons some people on the extreme Left gave for voting for Trump, and Scott explains why he thinks they are problematic.
Plus, Scott and Tripp make a case for continued investment and engagement in the democratic process.
