Today, the March For Our Lives drew hundreds of thousands around the United States. People were marching for human value and against gun violence.

However, many don’t realize the worldview assumptions behind this any many other cultural beliefs. We are fighting for human value, which is good. But what makes a person valuable? Do all people have value? In the podcast below, I identify what I believe to be four contradictions in our culture and how we can use those cultural beliefs to have positive worldview conversations.

  1. Should we protect innocent lives or a woman’s right to choose?
  2. Should we celebrate women or is gender a social construct?
  3. Should we have gender reveal parties or is gender not connected to biological sex?
  4. Should I fight to end sexual abuse (#Metoo) or the Hollywood movies promoting such behavior (50 Shades)?
