PODCAST: Evangelicals and Politics

By Up First | Listen | 56m
Published in June of 2019

SUMMARY: In an intriguing 56 minutes the Up First Podcast details the history of how evangelicals became synonymous with the Republican party – a history that has its roots in the 1800s with an Anglican minister named John Nelson Darby.

KEY QUOTE: “There can be this assumption that evangelicals are kind of like cicadas going into dormancy in between Iowa caucuses and the entire identity is built around what political movement they are involved in, who they are supporting when that’s really just not what evangelical Christianity is about.”
