Dan is joined by guest co-host Dr. Sara Moslener. They begin by the calls by Mike Pence and others for a national abortion ban. Dan puts this in the context of the “culture of life” many Christian conservatives tout as their reasons for implementing inhumane reproductive rights policies. Dan zeroes in on the slogan, “Save the Babies, Save America” as a nationalistic straw man with tragic consequences.
In the second segment, the hosts discuss the Turning Point USA conference, which is a vehicle for radicalizing young conservatives. Dr. Moslener shares her personal run-ins with the organization and the scary tactics they use to threaten and harass professors and teachers.
In the final segment, the hosts dig into the CNN article that claims Christian nationalism is “imposter Christianity.” They argue that Christianity is what Christians do- and so CN is Christianity, even if it’s violent, inhumane, and down right bad for the world.
