Books and Bridges: Spencer McBride, “The Myth of the Christian President”. UHBF
October 25 @ 6:30 PM - 8:00 PMFree
On October 25th, Books and Bridges presents Spencer McBride and “The Myth of the Christian President” at Weller Book Works!
In his presentation, “The Myth of the Christian President,” Spencer W. McBride describes the history of an expectation embraced by millions of twenty-first century American, namely that the president of the United States must be a Christian. The Constitution explicitly directs that there should be no religious test for federal office holding. So, from where did this extraconstitutional expectation arise? McBride uncovers the origins of this political belief in the partisan battles of the election of 1800 between John Adams and Thomas Jefferson and demonstrates how the belief has evolved over the ensuing centuries.
This event is organized by Books & Bridges — a community institute of ideas and conversation. Our mission is to facilitate discussion on the best of human thought. We explore the wisdoms of the world and apply them to modern life. We have no political, religious, or ideological affiliation. In a society divided by uncivil discourse, the beauty of the humanities—novels, history, philosophy, poetry, ethics, and epics—lifts us to our better angels. In our busy world we need space for friends and fellow learners to do a little more heart-to-heart and mind-to-mind.
Part of Utah Humanities Book Festival.
