Straight White American Jesus

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

Trump Indictment: Civil War + MAGA Jesus

Brad speaks to Dr. Matthew Boedy, Associate Professor at the University of North Georgia. Dr. Boedy is the go-to source on all things Charlie Kirk and TPUSA. He explains the rhetoric Kirk has used with his various audiences since the Trump indictment: talk of civil war, comparing Trump to Jesus, and calling for protests/rallies outside of SDNY when Trump is arraigned. He and Brad talk about how this rhetoric filters into thousands of churches across the country via TPUSA’s vast network of media channels and Kirk’s cross-country speaking tour.
