A podcast on religion and politics hosted by Daniel Miller and Bradley Onishi, ex-ministers who are now scholars of religion.

A White Southern Pentecostal Bernie Voter

Aaron Simmons has been asked to leave numerous churches over the last decade. Not over theology or the Bible. But because he votes the wrong way and wants to have open discussions about abortion, race, justice, and other issues. A fourth-generation Pentecostal, he didn’t leave evangelicalism. It left him. But he persists–attending an evangelical church whilst voting for Bernie and trying to create space for a more responsible and ethical American evangelicalism.
