"Joshua's Mitchell's remarks on July 16, 2019 during the "Identity Politics vs. National Conservatism" panel at the 2019 National Conservatism Conference.

Mitchell considers the phenomenon of identity politics as a late-modern Protestant heresy. What happens to the historic Protestant emphasis on a guilt that can be expunged only through sacrifice when the churches lose faith in Jesus as the sacrifice for transgression? The substitution of a privileged class as the scapegoat who must bear society's sin so that everyone else can escape the stain of inherited guilt."
