Stanley joins Hari Sreenivasan to explain his concern at signs of fascism on the rise in the U.S. Originally aired on July 23, 2020." from video introduction.
We live in perilous times. Our nation is more apostate and secular than it ever has been. The church in America seems to have asleep at the switch. American Christian Nationalism has formed into a faction that has deified Donald Trump. Trump is certainly a symptom of the problem we have of so called evangelicals that have apparently decided that immorality and lawlessness are acceptable to get a Christian political platform. Of course other lawless hate groups, white supremacists, neo-nazis etc. have taken advantage of this chaos to cause anarchy.
Are we closer now to fascism in America than ever and has Trump promoted these dangerous ideologies?
