Unapologetically Atheist

Where nonbelievers can talk freely

Interesting Radio Times Interview today

Hey, NPR lovers, today’s Radio Times’ first hour is an interview with Kevin Kruse, author of “One Nation Under God: How Corporate America Invented Christian America”.

It’s a pretty good interview. Kruse is an historian and there’s an emphasis on what happened in the past. Specifically they spend a lot of time talking about how phrases like “One Nation under God” and “In God we Trust” were incorporated into our lives. I would have liked more discussion about how the formation of the idea of a christian nation affects politics today. It’s still an interesting listen, and I plan on reading his book to learn more.

There aren’t a lot of callers for this episode, but the people who do call in are pretty hostile to Kruse’s thesis. That surprised me a little, but I guess it shouldn’t have.
