Secular Nation – Episode 12 – Religion & The Cold War

This Week Justin and Jeremy discuss religion before and during the Cold War. We attempt to dissect how the history of the nineteenth century American protestantism explains our current political situation. A situation where over 80% of American evangelicals voted for Trump.

With discussions ranging from the prosperity gospel to Russian Whataboutism, there’s not a whole lot you’d want to miss.
