  • Milwaukee faith leaders speak out against Christian nationalism

    An interfaith group in Milwaukee launched their “We All Belong” campaign last week to raise awareness about Christian nationalism, the belief that the United States is fundamentally a Christian nation—and should stay that way. Two clergy members explain how they foreground religious inclusivity while leading their congregations and why this campaign is so urgent ahead of the 2024 presidential election.

  • Remembering Sinéad O'Connor

    Mourners in Ireland gathered earlier this week to say goodbye to outspoken singer and activist Sinéad O’Connor, who died last month at age fifty-six. Her career was marked by a number of highly publicized controversies, but a music journalist and author of a new book about O’Connor says that the singer’s legacy goes much deeper than the headlines.
