How Christian Nationalism Paved the Way for January 6 with Jack Jenkins

June 20, 2022

Jack Jenkins, religion and politics reporter for Religion News Service, sits down with host Doug Pagitt to talk about how the January 6th Insurrection probably wouldn't have happened without the fuel of Christian Nationalism.
