Taking a Deeper Dive into Dominion Theology (with Dr André Gagné)

Tweet The inaugural episode of MindShift podcast for 2020 features returning guest, Dr André Gagné of Concordia University, Montreal, Quebec, Canada. As an expert on this vast and frankly confusing field of dominion theology, and its many streams, Professor Gagné is the perfect guest to continue the conversation I started with him on our episode last year. The evangelical support for Donald Trump should be an area of concern for anyone who values their liberties. And not only are there a great deal of conservative evangelicals pushing their agenda, increasingly we are discovering prominent dominion theologians among their ranks. Dr Gagné and I discuss this, along with many other facets of this movement that is daily growing in influence not just in America, but indeed the world.

Taking a Deeper Dive into Dominion Theology (with Dr André Gagné)

Bonus Episode: Reflecting on 2019, Looking Ahead to 2020

Tweet In this final end-of-year episode, I take a look back not just on the year 2019 in terms of podcast episodes and great guests I’ve been privileged to talk to, but I get into my own deconversion story too. What’s more important–to deconstruct your former beliefs, or to reconstruct your identity? I’ll hopefully answer that question as I tell a bit more of my own personal story, as well as previewing a bit of what’s coming ahead in 2020. Thanks for listening to MindShift Podcast in 2019–looking forward to what comes up in 2020! Support MindShift Podcast on Patreon in 2020!

Grief & God: Toxic Theology and Death (with Dr Terri Daniel)

Bonus Episode: Debutante Film & Shunning in the Jehovah's Witnesses (with Kamila Dydyna)

Tweet I recently had the pleasure of speaking with ex-Jehovah’s Witness and now independent filmmaker, Kamila Dydyna, who is attempting to raise funds for an important short film project entitled “Debutante.” This work will explore the psychological aspects of what it’s like to experience shunning as a JW–and what the people who are commanded to shun have to go through also. But before we discuss her upcoming film, we discuss Kamila’s backstory in the Watchtower, how it compares to identifiable cult markers, and what gave rise to her desire to produce this important work.

Surviving a Family Cult (with Vi La Bianca)

Tweet Vi La Bianca is the co-host of the ACA’s “Secular Sexuality” and “Talk Heathen” shows. But she wasn’t always an atheist…as it turns out, Vi grew up in a fundamentalist family cult. In this episode, Vi and I make use of established models of cults by experts, and apply it to her life growing up. How can she describe her growing up experience as being part of a “family cult”? What is that, anyway, and how did it operate? And more importantly, how did she get out–and what does her life look like now, as an atheist, going forward?

Bonus Episode - Take Back Your Life: Understanding How Cults Work (with Dr Janja Lalich)

Tweet After literally months of delays, rescheduling, etc., I have finally been able to track down the elusive Dr Janja Lalich for a great podcast interview! Dr Lalich is not only a sociologist and a cult expert, she is also a cult survivor too. This places her in the unique position to be able to give incredible insights as to the inner workings of cult psychology, the person of the leader, why people stay in cults, and how to reconstruct one’s identity after leaving the group behind. If you’re an ex-cultist, or have left any sort of group with undue influence, then this episode will be of great benefit to you. Support Independent Media Like MindShift Podcast on Patreon!

#carpethef***deim: Dying Out Loud (with Dave Warnock)

Tweet This week’s guest is former evangelical pastor and now atheist, Dave Warnock. What’s Dave’s story? If you know anything about him at all, you’ll know that he travels all over the country speaking on the topic of being an atheist…and facing death apart from religious dogma. A few years ago, Dave was diagnosed with ALS–a terminal illness. At best, he may have 3-5 years to live. But rather than turning his face to the wall, or cursing God for his disease, Dave is living life to the fullest…seizing the day…and helping thousands of other people face death with dignity, free from the constraints religion so often places upon us.

Special Episode: Love Never Shuns - Exposing the Watchtower Org (with Renee Cordeschi)

Tweet This special edition of MindShift Podcast features Renee Cordeschi, an ex-Jehovah’s Witness and survivor of both domestic violence and sexual abuse as a member of the Watchtower organization. On the 22nd of November, 2019, in Melbourne, Australia, the Witnesses are holding a massive conference entitled “Love Never Fails.” Renee, along with several hundred other ex-JWs, are planning to stage a peaceful protest entitled “Love Never Shuns.” In this episode, Renee describes her own backstory in the org, points out the toxic and cultic teachings she experienced, and explains why it’s important to shine the light on this org that has covered up so much serial sexual abusers within its ranks.

Bonus Episode: Exploring Dominion Theology Part 2 (with Dr Andr̕e Gagn̕̕̕e)

Tweet I’ve finally gotten back to this subject of dominion theology–and in my research, I’ve come across an expert on the subject: Dr Andr̕e Gagn̕̕̕e of Concordia University in Montreal, Quebec, Canada. Dr Gagn̕̕̕e and I provide a helpful overview of this important and timely subject, raising awareness of this incredibly pervasive teaching that has infiltrated large swathes of Christianity worldwide. Why should YOU care? Because one of the main aims of dominion theology is the Christian takeover of the world in order to install a theocracy–the rule of God, and Jesus, over the entire world…not to mention putting Christians in key positions of power, influence and authority over literally every sphere of society.

Exploring Religious Trauma Syndrome (with Laura Anderson)

Tweet If you’ve left fundamentalist religion behind, or a cult or any high-control group with undue influence, then you’ve likely suffered from RTS–religious trauma syndrome. This week’s chat features a specialist who works with clients who suffer from RTS, psychotherapist Laura Anderson. Leaving religion behind is traumatic enough, as we have to deal with grief, loss, anger, feelings of betrayal, and the various abuses we may have suffered while in the system. But after walking away, many of us have to deal with the lingering effects of RTS, which is actually more akin to PTSD. Symptoms of RTS include triggering, sudden feelings of loss, anger, or control, to name a few. Identifying them, and secondly developing a helpful strategy of dealing with them when-not if–they occur, is the way forward in terms of reconstructing our identity post-religion.
