"Donald Trump is the conduit to God's will on earth?!"

Jan 31, 2018, 10:18 PM

In this episode, we talk about the belief by many conservative charismatics in America that God helped put Donald Trump in the White House, the subject of a Politico Magazine story this week by Amy.

We also discuss new developments in Catholic activism, such as the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops submitting an amicus brief in supporting public sector unions in the Supreme Court case Janus v. AFSCME. This comes after decades of the U.S. church downplaying its support for labor unions and other more progressive causes in favor of activism on culturally-conservative issues.

And in the wake of reports that Hillary Clinton intervened to keep a senior aide in charge of faith issues on her 2008 campaign after he was accused of sexually harassing a subordinate, we talk about the sorry state of faith outreach in the Democratic Party.
