Party in the U.S.A: What's next for the Christian right?
American Christianity is a complex thing, and there’s plenty of diversity in terms of denomination, theology and belief. But over the last four years, white Christians who describe themselves as Evangelical or born again have consistently rated President Donald Trump highly. In fact, the tightly woven alliance between the religious right, Evangelicals and the Republican Party was fundamental to Trump's success.
But as the former president moves on, where does that leave the Christian right? For insight, Elamin calls up Emma Green, a writer at The Atlantic who has extensively covered the intersection between U.S. politics, policy and religion. She explains why she called the Jan. 6 attack on Capitol Hill a “Christian insurrection” and why so many believed that God meant for Trump to be inaugurated for a second term.
