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: The Tennessee Two and a Half

Brad and Dan begin by discussing the explusion of two members of the Tennessee legislature – Reps. Justin Jones and Justin Pearson – after they led gun violence protests in the state Capitol. It’s a case of systemic racism, a desire to keep young Black leaders in line, and an attempt to squash the voices of peaceful protesters.

In the second segment they break down the bombshell story that Clarence Thomas has been accepting lavish gifts from a GOP megadonor for years.

In the final segment, they discuss the Trump arraignment and what it means going forward.
