“Karma Is A Magnificent B*tch” w/ Diana Butler Bass and Rick Wilson

With Friends Like These - December 8, 2017 - 1:12:40

First, [3:17] author and theologian Diana Butler Bass (@dianabutlerbass) drops by to give us an explainer on the really long theological history behind Trump’s decision to proclaim Jerusalem the capital of Israel, and how that decision appeals specifically to members of his conservative evangelical base who believe in dispensational premillennialism (more popular than one might think). Diana and Ana conclude it is possible to change people’s minds on Armageddon. Then, [43:50] Ana checks in with GOP media guy Rick Wilson (@TheRickWilson) for his insight on how his party is (mis)handling Roy Moore. The main question: can the Republican Party get any lower than standing behind a pedophile? Listeners, direct emails to withfriendslikepod@gmail.com, or find us on Twitter at @crooked_friends.
