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: Mad Mirth and the War on Christmas

Brad and Dan begin by discussing how Joe Manchin is giving everyone coal for Christmas, even though coal workers want him to vote for the Build Back Better Act. It shows that his actions are based on corporate lobbying, rather than looking out for his voters.

They then discuss Americafest–the event put on by Turning Point USA where Kyle Rittenhouse was given celebrity treatment.

The episode finishes with a look at how the war on Christmas in America was started and waged by Puritans.
