Scott Coley: How Christian Leaders Became Ministers of Propaganda

1h 6m | Apr 30, 2024

The fact that "good evangelical Christians are Republican" seems obvious means the propaganda is working.

Professor and author Scott Coley helps us understand how evangelicalism became fused with right-wing politics and now presses evangelical theology into the service of authoritarian politics, which he outlines in his new book Ministers of Propaganda: Truth, Power, and the Ideology of the Religious Right.

Scott M. Coley is a lecturer in philosophy at Mount St. Mary's University. His research interests include philosophy of religion, moral epistemology, and political philosophy.
