Tuesday Links

1) Vagabond Scholar skewers the sort of both-sides-do-it political centrism I find so infuriating. Preview: “Centrist fetishism…supplies the illusion of independence and insight while obviating any need for critical thinking and qualitative judgment.”

2) After reading this article about “disability porn” (not actually what it sounds like), I realized that I haven’t given much careful thought to the topic of disability.

3) My friend Ryan pointed me towards this essay on the sometimes deficiency of religious language.

4) Tonight I get to hear Mark Jordan–a scholar who works on queer theology–give a lecture. Check out the interview he did with Religion and Politics after President Obama announced his support of marriage equality.
