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.

Weekly Roundup: Beetlejuice Beetlejuice Beetlejuice

On the first segment Dan and Brad begrudgingly discuss Lauren Boebrert’s Beetlejuice scandal – and what it reveals about the Christian nationalist persona she’s cultivated.

In the second segment, they discuss a myriad of issues – from the firing of a teacher for teaching the Diary of Anne Frank to supposed discrimination against Whites at West Point to the charge that Merrick Garland thinks all Catholics are religious extremists.

In the final segment they discuss the Alabama redistricting case – and what it we now know about the dark money network funding the state’s defiance of the federal government. Spoiler alert: it’s an attempt to once and for all nullify the Voting Rights Act.
