Many Christian leaders came to hate the New Deal, especially libertarians. Their opposition to the New Deal as creeping socialism sparked the National Prayer Breakfast, some of Billy Graham’s speeches, and the bonding of capitalism to Christianity and the US. So we should probably know what the New Deal was!

Our guest this episode is Justin Rosolino. He’s a high school history teacher and the author of the book “Idiot Sojourning Soul“.

You can find pictures of Chris’ 50 mile New Deal Bike Tour on the website at www.trucepodcast.com.
