This course explores Christian ethics from a liberative perspective, emphasizing the importance of justice, equality, and freedom. Students will examine the historical and contemporary contexts that have shaped Christian ethics and how these contexts have influenced various ethical frameworks within Christianity. Additionally, the course will consider the intersectionality of race, gender, sexuality, class, and ability and how these identities affect ethical decision-making. The course will also examine the contributions of feminist and womanist theologians, black liberation theologians, and queer theologians to Christian ethics. We will study their critiques of traditional Christian ethics and their proposals for a liberative ethical framework. Throughout the course, we will analyze case studies and current events to apply the theories and frameworks we have studied to real-world situations. We will consider questions such as: What does it mean to love our neighbor as ourselves in a diverse and unequal world? How can Christians work towards justice and liberation for marginalized communities? What role do Christian ethics play in shaping public policy?
