"Try Googling 'John Hagee and End Times'"

May 20, 2018, 07:35 PM

This week, we talk about Vice President Mike Pence's commencement address at Hillsdale College, in which he declared that religiosity is on the rise in America (it's not). 

We also discuss the decision to move the U.S. embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem AND to invite John "the Apocalypse is coming and it will be in Israel" Hagee to represent the United States by offering a benediction at the opening ceremony for the new embassy.

And Amy phones Emma Green, the Jerusalem-based religion writer for the Atlantic, to learn more about how the move is being received by those in the region.

(Note: Due to some technical difficulties, some of Amy's audio got garbled, which explains one or two odd transitions you might notice. Thanks for bearing with us!)
