Weekly Roundup: Putin’s Christian Values

Brad and Dan discuss Putin’s war on Ukraine and the Christian nationalist/GOP responses at home. They focus the first segment on how the only people on the global stage defending Putin openly are Donald Trump and select politicians and leaders from the GOP. This leads to an exploration of the Christians who admit that they identify more with Putin’s Christian values than Joe Biden’s leadership.
