Talk Title: Conceptualizations of religious deities and the maintenance of ideologies that maintain social hierarchy


Abstract: Historians, Black liberation and feminist theologians, Black/Pan-African nationalists and behavioral scientists have long argued that individuals’ conceptualizations of God may be related to their attitudes and ideologies that maintain social hierarchy (e.g., White supremacy, Patriarchy).  In the research to be presented, preliminary evidence demonstrates that gender and racial conceptualizations of God/Jesus are related to prejudicial attitudes, gender system justification, social dominance orientation and colorblind racial ideology.  The implications of these findings for historically advantaged and historically disadvantaged will be discussed as well as current and future directions.
