Robert Beckford, Professor of Theology and Culture in the African Diaspora, Canterbury Christ Church University

And in the Big News today from a Faith Perspective, there’s a really good series on the telly. Which brings me neatly to black and feminist theology and something about the Exodus.

All lives matter, except Canaanites.

  1. I’m confused.
    Is Beckford claiming that his IMF is racist and sexist because it has different attitudes to people based on their, er, differences?
    Or is he saying that inventive thinking by a modern theologist means black people and women have new ways of making excuses for what their IMF has obviously failed to achieve?
    I think we should be told.

  2. What a dog’s breakfast. This TftD illustrates the drawbacks of trying to shoehorn an imaginary deity into serious questions about human society. Taken at face value, Beckford seems to be suggesting that the IMF is on the side of women and black people and against their ‘oppressors’ – which can only mean white men! It’s all our fault, as usual. I wonder if Beckford’s told his Archbishop.

  3. It’s a shame that Beckford, as a non-cleric and under no obligation to toe the party line, didn’t take this opportunity to discuss the IICSA issue.
    Maybe he’s a mere pawn of the ‘establishment’ after all.
