Heather sits down with writer, speaker, and theologian Kaitlyn Schiess to discuss her latest book, The Ballot and the Bible: How Scripture Has Been Used and Abused in American Politics. Today’s episode is part two of our three-part podclass on “Disrupting American gods.” Kaitlyn will explain the history of using the Bible as a prop in American politics, and she’ll also share her illuminating definition of “Christian nationalism,” a term we have heard a lot of in recent years.
In this episode, Heather also explores lighter subject matter with her best friend and co-blogger Scarlett Longstreet in this week’s Safe Space chat. This go-round, Heather and Scarlett debate the pros and cons of unfollowing people online.
