Charity Shop Evangelists

Charity Shop Evangelists

This piece interrogates the purpose of faith in giving people a continued sense of purpose in America: a culture of perennial novelty that seeks to discard people when they are unable to find a place in the narrow routine of its population. This essay also opens up a further interrogation of one of the biggest problems facing our culture: how do we resist the urge to dispose of people, as we do our used items? And when people have been disposed of, how do they survive? Robert examines it through the behavior of these charity shop evangelists, while also examining his own relationship to this religious community as a queer man.
