Saturday Link Love: Relevant, Abortion, and Capitalism

Saturday Link Love: Relevant, Abortion, and Capitalism September 21, 2019

Saturday Link Love is a feature where I collect and post links to various articles I’ve come upon over the past week. Feel free to share any interesting articles you’ve come along as well! The more the merrier!

Note: The two articles below are written by former employees of the evangelical magazine Relevant, discussing the toxic culture and dismissal of black and brown voices at the company. 

Black Christians Deserve Better Than Companies (And Churches) Like Relevant Media Group, on Medium—“He scrolled through February’s 28 days on the computer screen, and his lip curled as he looked at placeholders on each day for an article related to Black History. ‘What about people who aren’t interested in that?’ he asked.”

On the Subject of Cameron Strang’s Sins, on Among the Olive Trees—“In this respect, Cameron Strang and Relevant are interchangeable entities. If the source of water is toxic, the body of water is not fit to swim in.”

With Abortion Restrictions On The Rise, Some Women Induce Their Own, on NPR—“At a time when getting an abortion at a clinic is becoming more difficult in many places, a network of reproductive rights advocates is working to share information about self-induced abortion, both in person and over the Internet.”

Capitalism Made This Mess, and This Mess Will Ruin Capitalism, on Wired—“To understand climate change, one environmental historian says we need to realize we’ve entered a new era: the Capitalocene.”
