Directions to Discussion Board
Watch the three video clips (click PREVIOUS to view) and then respond to the discussion questions here. Once you have posted your discussion, please reply thoughtfully and respectfully to two of your colleagues. Please keep in mind that religion, because it deals with ultimate values and truth, can be a highly charged topic. I anticipate considerable religious diversity among students (from devout faith to no faith at all). Given the strong slants of some of these clips, it is especially important to by mindful of our own and others feelings. What I’m looking for here is cultural and anthropological discussion rather than theological or political debate.
Clip 1: Roger Ross Williams, “Gospel of Intolerance” New York Times Op-doc based on Williams’s documentary, God Loves Uganda (2013).
What does Rev. Kapya Kaoma have to say about the motivations and impact (both positive and negative) some U.S. evangelical missionaries are having in Uganda? How do these U.S. positions religious and moral debates in the United States?
How do leaders of the International House of Prayer represent their goals in Uganda? What was their take on proposed severe penalties against gays in Uganda?
What insight does this NYT “Op-Doc” provide into possible links between cultural politics and religion in the United States? What do you think?
Clip 2: Jesus Camp (2006) Highlights.
[Disclaimer: I’ve asked you to watch this clip from the controversial 2006 documentary, Jesus Camp, because it illustrates the power of religious discourse and ritual practice, the relation between religion and politics in the U.S., and the intensity of “culture wars” and ‘spiritual combat” in the U.S. I do not necessarily agree (nor am I asking you to agree) with the idea that “brain washing” is taking place. In other words, we do not have to agree or disagree to analyze this clip culturally and ethnographically.
How, specifically, does this film illustrate the power of religious ritual to shape belief? (Example?)
How does this film suggest the role of discursive and symbolic violence in religious practice? (Example?)
How does this film point to diversity in U.S. Christianity? (Example? You may also draw on your own experience here.)
Is it even appropriate to watch such a “biased” depiction of religious practice in the United States? Why or why not?
Clip 3. US Church holds Muslim Prayer (ABC News, Nov. 2014)
What was your reaction of a Muslim prayer being held in the National Cathedral in Washington, D.C.?
What insight does this clip provide into how religious diversity in the U.S. might be managed?
What does this clip suggest to about the relation between religion and politics in the United States?
