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: Red Pilling Abortion

Brad and Dan begin by discussing the utterly confusing rulings from several judges on legality and availability of mifepristone, commonly known as the abortion pill. Dan takes us through the complicated web of rulings and Brad analyzes how creating this mess was an intentional strategy by Christian nationalists to get the case kicked up to the Supreme Court.

In the second segment the hosts discuss a case from Texas where Greg Abbott has promised to pardon a man recently convicted of murdering a protester at a Black Lives Matter Rally. Brad concludes that this is not about law and order – but about a certain White Christian order that, at least in this case, negates a foundational tenet of American democracy: a jury by your peers.

In the final segment, Dan takes us through the just-passed abortion trafficking law out of Idaho – a first of its kind in the nation and one that portends even darker days ahead in the fight for reproductive rights.
