Our Family Values

George Lakoff, author of Moral Politics: How Liberals and Conservatives Think discovered conservatives and liberals have two different ideals of the family that he calls a Strict Father Family and a Nurturing Parent Family. Map this metaphor of those family models onto our national moral and political life, and you get two very different models of the family, and with them, two very different models of politics. Today, Rev. Chris will add, two very different models of religion.
