Evangelicalism and Politics in the U.S.

This from the Owl & Ibis – A Confluence of Minds “Statement of Purpose and Intent:”

“Respectful of the rights of its members to hold personal beliefs of their choosing, Owl and Ibis, as a learning endeavor, is interested in all civilizations, societies, cultural traditions, and belief systems but professes to none. It holds in high esteem secular-scientific thinking yet is committed to ideological pluralism and tolerance regarding all other modes of thought and inquiry. At the same time, Owl & Ibis participants will critically assess and when necessary challenge the beliefs and values of persons and groups in terms of the harm they may do or the purported benefit they provide to specific persons, peoples, and Humankind as a whole.”

In this spirit O&I offers and endorses the following, a documentary video from author and videographer, Pam Dewey. An introductory note from Ms. Dewey follows.


Part IV, the latest installment of my Strange Brew YouTube series, “Wrapping Weirdness in the Flag,” is now available.  See link at the end of this post. 

For a short while after the election of 2016, there was widespread interest in the public press in trying to account for the unusually high percentage of Evangelical Christians who voted for Donald Trump. Many theories were floated, and throughout early 2017 you occasionally saw photos of groups of evangelical leaders praying over Trump in the Oval Office. But so many other troubling aspects of the Trump Administration have flooded the news almost daily in the past year and a half, that the Evangelical voter topic has been shunted into the shadows.

It is my conviction that this is a big mistake. Because I am convinced that those Evangelical voters may once again have a drastic effect on the upcoming Mid-Term Election of 2018, catching many pundits by surprise again. This latest entry in the Strange Brew series, along with the next two entries in the series (coming soon), will give the viewer insight into just how and why masses of Evangelicals are gearing up for what they view as not just settling “partisan political disagreements” … but a literal violent, supernatural Spiritual Battle with what they consider forces of darkness.
