This powerful time in the Pews features Case Erickson, an Austin-based business coach and TED speaker who has authored the groundbreaking “Coming Out by Going In: The Freedom to be Yourself”.
The episode commences with Glenn demonstrating how morality is NOT absolute by utilizing Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day and President Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s speech to Congress declaring war on Japan. What does this and World War II have to do with “celebrating sexuality and exposing religion”? Case wondered, discovered and so will you! The new film “The Two Popes” starring Anthony Hopkins and Jonathan Pryce and why it barely touches on the Catholic Church’s sex scandal is addressed. World AIDS Day and the role of Ruth Coker Burks’ loving response in the early days of the epidemic are remembered. Case’s journey from a closeted gay young man with a Marine father and a Southern Baptist upbringing to a reluctant traditional husband to a father of two wonderful children to finally accepting his authentic self is beautifully detailed. We learn how Case met Sarrah Rose at a “Hippie Woo Woo” event, why the forerunners of the LGBTQI movement were so courageous, why “religious trauma syndrome” so mirrors PTSD, the feminine descriptions the Bible actually gives to God and humanity, why Case describes his body type as “appreciates fitness and queso”, plus a sh&t load more!
It definitely ain’t going to be boring!
