“In their language of warfare spiritual and secular, Trump’s evangelical allies have been playing with a fire that may continue to burn long after they give up this contest…History is a wasteland of religious justifications for political activism, identity, and violence. On the other hand, Christianity, and American Christianity especially, has arguably possessed more than its fair share of these unions of political thought and religious belief.”

Our friend Thomas Lecaque is back on the podcast to talk with Johanna, Teer, and myself about his latest article at The Bulwark (you really should subscribe to it) entitled, Spiritual Warriors on Behalf of Donald Trump: Putting the recent rhetoric of some of the president’s evangelical supporters in historical context.
