In addition to giving the John Albert Hall lecture at the University of Victoria this past month, the journalist Chris Hedges, preached at Christ Church Cathedral in Victoria, British Columbia, on January 20, 2019. I am told that some people walked out, objecting to the political content of what Hedges said. In particular he denounced a) the corporate state culture as another idol, as nothingness opposed to God; religious fundamentalism as a heresy; and c) the liberal churches for failing to denounce the first two. He quotes Reinhold Niebuhr, Daniel Berrigan, Søren Kierkegaard, Aleksandr Solzenitsyn, the poet Linda Gregg, and scripture, too. As before, you may not agree with what he says, but he nevertheless well is worth listening to. Sermons are not just to reassure us, they are also to unsettle us. Chris Hedges does that.
