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

The Reawaken America Tour: Anti-Semitic, Anti-Democratic, and Openly Violent

Brad talks to Rev. Nathan Empsall, the Executive Director of Faithful America. They discuss the Reawaken America Tour, which just relaunched in Las Vegas a week ago. As Rev. Nathan says, the tour platforms speakers who are anti-Semitic, anti-democratic, and openly violent. It is a dangerous movement that is, unfortunately, tying together explicit Christian practice – like baptism on stage – with insidious American nationalism. The result? Maybe the most potent magnet for Christian nationalism alive today.
