Fuller hosted a panel discussion last night that was aired on our local public radio station 89.3 KPCC. The topic was "The Intersection of Politics and Evangelical Christianity." You can listen to the program here. Listen especially to the first question asked by a member of the audience (it's at the beginning of the third and final section of the show). The question was asked to Fuller's president, Rich Mouw. It was:
What do you say to those whose general perception of Evangelicalism is one that equates it with the Red States? That is, how do we re-claim the term 'Evangelical' for a more diversified perspective? I'm thinking especially as it is related in the media.This is an exact quotation of the inquirer's question. I know, because I kept the card on which I wrote the question.
Just to be clear though that I did not rush to the mic when the question and answer time came. The producers had people write their questions on cards, and include their name. The producer and others collected the cards prior to the third section and then selected a handful to be asked during the latter part of the recording.
The broadcast is worth listening to, even without my question.
