Dispatches from TPUSA’s Pastor’s Conference

Brad speaks with Tim Whitaker of the New Evangelicals about what he saw and heard at the TPUSA Pastor’s Conference in Nashville – a gathering of 1100 pastors from across the country. They discuss three main themes:

  1. COVID denial and the way it created momentum for an anti-government, anti-“woke” church movement
  2. Trans hatred and the dehumanizing rhetoric that TPUSA encourages pastors to use
  3. Christian nationalism – the various factions and debates manifest at the conference and why they should scare us all.
