“America Glorifies God More Than Africa”: Condemning two Cedarville Chapels Speakers

In this blog post, I want to analyze how Cedarville’s chapel functions to forward particularly right wing political ideologies through the transcription of political ideology into a religious and theological text. I will discuss the nature of Cedarville’s chapel service, and two particular cases, and one way that conversations were the foundation for producing a counter-discourse at Cedarville.

Case 1: “Palestine belongs to Israel, because the Bible”

Case 2: “America Glorifies God More Than Africa”
