Brad and Dan begin by discussing the porn-accountability app that Speaker Mike Johnson uses with his son. They explain how apps like these are a feature in evangelical circles and how they are a part of the purity culture landscape. Dan then zooms out to explain why he doesn’t buy the idea that contemporary Christian nationalism, as it embodied in Johnson, is not a divergence from American history. Neither host agrees that this is just a matter of normal patriotic Americans being corrupted, but is instead an outgrowth of a long history.
In the final half of the episode the hosts go through the good news in this week’s elections on the issues of abortion, school boards, and the election of one of the nation’s first trans state senators. The question: What does this mean for 2024 and beyond?
