New research by the Barna Group shows that Americans in increasing numbers view Christianity as unbeneficial and even dangerous to society. Barna president David Kinnaman and Q conference founder Gabe Lyons join Phil and Skye to discuss their new book – Good Faith: Being A Christian When Society Thinks You’re Irrelevant and Extreme. Plus reaction to recent Trump rally violence and the rise of American demagoguery. What fun!

In your latest podcast, you threw around the term “monger” and wondered if there were any other types of mongers. Here is a definition, and just a few of the ways that monger can be used (I’ve only included a few of the more common ones). first, the definition: “a person who promotes a specified activity, situation, or feeling, especially one that is undesirable or discreditable.” A few types of mongers are: fishmonger, ironmonger, hatemonger, fearmonger, warmonger, rumormonger, gossipmonger, fashionmonger. There should probably also be “toupeemonger” – as in someone who promotes looking like “The Donald”.

I am not prepared to be a Trump Defender. But I am hearing a lot of criticism of Trump in the mainstream media and your podcast. What I am not hearing is equal criticism of the other candidates. Can we hear about Hillary’s part with Vince Foster, Bill’s misdeeds, Benghazi, her email issues and other influence pedaling.
You guys seemed concerned that the party system wasn’t doing its job keeping unqualified individuals from getting the nomination. What if both the republicans and democrats have their own clique in DC and they just don’t want an outsider messing up their deal. When is the last time anyone in Washington passed a serious budget.
I agree Trump has issues. But at this point, I suggest we be more skeptical and critical of the insiders to balance our criticism of Trump.
