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: Genocide is Not Good Actually

“Whatever natural good was present in the piety and community of the pagan past is an infinitesimal fraction of the grace rendered unto those pagans’ descendants who have been received into the Church of Christ. Whatever sacrifices were exacted in pursuit of that grace—the suffocation of a noble pagan culture; an increase in disease and bodily death due to government negligence; even the sundering of natural families—is worth it.” Declan Leary writing at the American Conservative

Brad responds to this article and similar comments by Jesse Waters, Dave Rubin, and Matt Walsh, all of whom have taken the stance that “this land was conquered just like all populated land on Earth. And thank God that it was. Our civilization is far superior to what came before it.”

He also discusses the explosive new data from PRRI on the decline of White Evangelcalism and the rise of the Nones–the USA’s biggest religious group to date.
