Is Sincerity Dead? - Keeping it 100 in 2017 - 106

By Jeff Manildi & Allen O'Brien

Is sincerity dead?  “I don’t stand by anything” - both presidential quotation and epitaph on the tombstone of sincerity. Do we believe one another? Ourselves? And does it matter anymore? Jeff and Allen debate the presence of sincerity in public space and places of faith, before crafting their perfect Thanksgiving guest list.   Our Conversation on Is Sincerity Dead?
