Meta-Blogging: July 2007 Archives

As I was posting my latest post in my Christianity and Politics series at the conservative philosophy blog Right Reason, I thought it might be nice to put together a post here linking to all the posts in the series. I will update this post as I add posts there. Posts 7 and 8 are tentatively titled, and I may even restructure what I hope to cover in remaining posts.

1. Introduction: Christian and Politics (Guest Blogging)
2. Augustine on Civil Government: The Two Cities
3. Augustine on Civil Government: Two Further Preliminaries
4. Augustine on Civil Government: Authority
5. Augustine on Civil Government: The City of God and Compromise
6. Christian Political Political Participation
7. Religious Motivations in Politics
8. Religion and the First Amendment

The 183rd Christian Carnival will be taking place this coming Wednesday at Crossroads: Where Faith and Inquiry Meet. The Christian Carnival is a weekly collection of some of the best posts of the Christian  blogosphere. It's open to Christians of Protestant, Orthodox, and Roman Catholic convictions. One of the goals of this carnival is to offer our readers to a broad range of Christian thought. This is a great way to make your writing more well known and perhaps pick up some regular readers. For examples of past carnivals, see Matt Jones's list of previous Christian Carnivals.

To enter is simple. First, your post should be of a Christian nature, but this does not exclude posts that are about home life, politics, or current events from a Christian point of view. Select only one post dated since the last Christian Carnival (i.e. from the last Wednesday through the coming Tuesday). Then do the following:

The 181st Christian Carnival: Poetry Edition is up at Mere Orthodoxy. Here's the poem Matt wrote for me:

To vote Fred! or not vote Fred?.
That is the question
That Jeremy is asking.
Evangelicals are giddy,
But would not support Rudy.
Which seems like it should result in some cognitive dissonance.

My guest blogging at Right Reason starts this week. I've got an introductory post up now about whatI intend to cover. I still haven't figured out how much will be cross-posted here. Here is my summary of the series Max and I worked out:

Max asked me to take on the theme Christianity and Politics, and I'd like to use this opportunity to explore Augustine's views on how Christians should relate politically to a religiously pluralist society. I think he has a lot to offer to those current debates, and his views line up nicely with my own in several ways. I don't expect just to present Augustine's views, however. I expect this to be as much about how I see myself as an evangelical and how I relate to the pluralist society we live in, including how religious views can affect both political discourse and ground my support for particular policies.

Is it just me, or does this sound like this is referring to arguments that take vegetarians themselves to be bad rather than just arguing that vegetarianism as a philosophical view or way of life is misguided or uncompelling?

Is the assumption here that indicating your desire at one time to do something amounts to an unbreakable promise to do it? You have to be thinking with your loins to assume that.

New Carnival

I was included in a new blog carnival recently. I'm not entirely sure how. It seems to be a somewhat broad selection of posts vaguely related to God, religion, the meaning of life, love, etc.

Sullilanche

Is there a name for when Andrew Sullivan links to you? If not, maybe I'm coining one now with "Sullilanche". (I originally thought "Sullivalanche", but that sounds less like the original word. I did leave it in the URL for the post).

It's pretty much monopolizing my sitemeter for the moment. I'm curious how he found out about the post. If you're reading this, Andrew, thanks for the link, and I'd be interested to know what directed your attention here.

He describes me as a Kantian. I wouldn't call myself a Kantian. I don't like several things about Kant's version of deontology, and the absolutism I challenge here is just one of them. I also think he's too rationalistic, ignoring the contribution of emotions to proper moral evaluation, and I'm more inclined to see character as the primary object of moral evaluation rather than actions as Kant (along with most modern ethicists) does. If I had to pick a philosopher I'd align myself with most closely, it would most likely be Augustine.
