Please see original workshop description for details before posting here.
This workshop will focus on the denomination church of the Christian religion. As institutions of waning social relevance in the privileged societies of globalized capitalism, this workshop will considering what roles motivated reasoning may have played in the decline and inter-denominational shifts of membership. Both those who are active in a religious community, and those intentionally disengaged from institutional religions are welcome. The summary report will be framed as a series of questions that grow from the discussion that may be helpful tools for understanding motivated reasoning’s role in the rise of apostasy in the Christian religion and how this has fed into environmental, social, and economic injustice.
