Weaponized Evangelicalism, Part II – Steve Wiggins, Presenter

In the first session we took a brief historical tour of Evangelicalism and how it became involved in politics. This second session will go into a little more detail concerning further characteristics of the movement. We will examine their issues that both divide and unite it, their political agendas and parallel developments with fascism and nationalism.
