 What happens when ideas from university campuses finally hit the ground? It's one thing to talk about ideas and it's something else entirely to make good on them. For those who still question whether or not the approaches of Critical Theory can be adopted by the Church, enter one Frank Wilderson; author of *Afropessimism*. Wilderson talks in a recent interview about what strain of Critical Theory will be able to "end the world" and that strain is the "Race" version of this philosophy. Translation? Critical Race Theory, in Wilderson's estimation is the best candidate to end the West. If you don't think that includes the Church...... Nathan Rinne of Concordia St. Paul and I discuss this alarming interview.
