The sermons of the Unitarian Society of Germantown in Philadelphia, PA

4.10.16, Homo Categoricus, Rev. Kent Matthies

Psychologists Mahzarin R. Banaji and Anthony G. Greenwald’s groundbreaking book “Blindspot” will be the basis for a two part sermon series (April 10 & 17).  As we explore our spiritual theme of April, Privilege, we will “explore hidden biases we all carry from a lifetime of exposure to cultural attitudes about age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexuality, disability status, and nationality.”  Dr. Seuss wrote about how the Star Bellied and Plain Bellied Sneetches continually engaged competition for superiority.  How can we escape our inner Sneetch?
