I’m still doing some housekeeping on this blog to get myself situated and organized, but I wanted to let everyone know that I am still working on the series that I had begun on ‘Growing Up Conservative,’ which is itself pending a better title. I’m writing these posts in response to our channel editor Sam Rocha’s call for those of us who have taken a critical stance toward conservative ideology to write about our process of literally growing up and out of it ‘in as clear-eyed and even-toned prose’ as we can. Sam’s own story can be found on his blog.
There are currently 3.5 posts in this series. Previous posts are:
PART 1: ‘Sure, I’ll write about growing up conservative’
PART 2: ‘I thought “conservative” just meant “solid” and “dependable”‘
PART 3: ‘Catholic school contorted my conservatism because we had to read closely’
ADDENDUM TO PART 3: Stuff I remember reading in high school
