Episode 123: The Hermeneutic of Trumpers

Shabbat Dinner (from left to right: The Gentile, The Jew, The Ampersand of Reason)

Episode 123 of a Jew & a Gentile Walk into a Bar…Mitzvah the Podcast, features a discussion of why Evangelical Christians support increasingly-former President Trump. The Jew shared an article in The Conversation by Stewart Clem, “What’s Next for American Evangelicals After Trump Leaves Office?” The Gentile muddies the water by sharing an article that appeared in the Nation written by Susan McWilliams that suggests that the late Hunter S. Thompson in his book “Hells Angels: The Strange and Terrible Saga of the Outlaw Motorcycle Gangs” predicted the rise of Trumpism. The Ampersand of Reason, Rev. Helena, suggests that there is a “Trumper Hermeneutic” that Evangelical Christians apply to their interpretation of both the Bible and the U.S. Constitution. To skip our opening mishigas begin listening at the 22:01 mark.
