On this week’s episode of Yeah Nah Pasaran! on 3CR we talk to Katherine Stewart [Twitter]. Katherine is a journalist and the author of The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism (Bloomsbury, 2020):
For too long the Religious Right has masqueraded as a social movement preoccupied with a number of cultural issues, such as abortion and same-sex marriage. In her deeply reported investigation, Katherine Stewart reveals a disturbing truth: this is a political movement that seeks to gain power and to impose its vision on all of society. America’s religious nationalists aren’t just fighting a culture war, they are waging a political war on the norms and institutions of American democracy.
Katherine also recently penned ‘Christian Nationalists Are Excited About What Comes Next’ for The New York Times (July 5, 2022): The shape of the Christian nationalist movement in the post-Roe future is coming into view, and it should terrify anyone concerned for the future of constitutional democracy.
