    Christian Extremism and the Kingdom of Rage

    Christian Extremism and the Kingdom of Rage

    In today's episode of Disarming Leviathan, I am joined by my friend, Elizabeth Neumann. Elizabeth is a former Homeland Security official who served under both the Bush and Trump administrations at the Department of Homeland Security.
    We discuss her book, Kingdoms of Rage, and her unique perspective on radicalization, drawn from her extensive experience in Homeland Security. Elizabeth provides valuable insights into how individuals transition from entertaining certain ideas to engaging in acts of resistance, violence, and even killing.
    Our conversation covers how to recognize the signs of this radicalization process, understand what's happening to individuals as they go through it, and effectively engage with those who may be caught up in extremism, helping to guide them away from dangerous paths. Join us for this important and enlightening discussion.

    Peacemaking in a Culture of Violence & Extremism w/ Gary Mason

    Peacemaking in a Culture of Violence & Extremism w/ Gary Mason

    In today's episode of the Disarming Leviathan Podcast, we are honored to be joined by Reverend Dr. Gary Mason, a distinguished Methodist minister. Dr. Mason holds a PhD from the University of Ulster's School of College and has been awarded an honorary doctorate in Divinity from Florida Southern College for his remarkable contributions to peacebuilding in Ireland.
    With an ongoing ministry in Belfast, throughout Ireland, and even extending to America, Dr. Mason's work has been profoundly influential and instructive for me over the past season. In this insightful interview, Dr. Mason shares compelling stories of his bridge-building and peacemaking efforts during the Troubles in Ireland—a period marked by intense ethnic and religious nationalism that often led to violence and warfare.
    Through his experiences and the teachings of Jesus as manifest in the church, Dr. Mason demonstrates how peace can be achieved even in the most tumultuous of circumstances. Join us as we explore these powerful narratives and glean valuable lessons for our mission of engaging with Christian Nationalists in America.

Such insightful conversations

I am grateful for this resource for making sense of the relationships between power, psychology, Faith, language, community, affiliation, and worldview and how they get expressed in public discourse and personal and political relationships. I value particularly this forum where people of Faith can explore the complex and sensitive issues that cut us to the quick and dishearten us. I leave listening feeling buoyed by the knowledgeable, gentle, piercing and peaceful voices. May your tribe increase.
