With uninterrogated legitimacy, a number of straight, white, males have authored contributions to liberation theology. No "Pedagogy of the Privileged" exists to problematize their initiatives. Conveniently ignored is the condition of liberation theology that its matrix is singularity oppression. Does the setting of privilege disqualify their initiatives? Straight, white, males are seldom victims of oppressive forces: more often they are the perpetrators. Privilege, like radon, permeates their context. Is privilege fatal? Is it possible to dislocate? Is there precedence for an authentic contribution? Liberating Privilege addresses the liability of context and develops a response from Scripture. Ultimately, it hinges on "The breakthrough of God" and aligns with it.
