In this first long-form podcast, we unpack the recently released book by once and once again Alaskan author John Davidson, Pagan America: The decline of Christianity and the dark age to come.

John is the brother of our tireless editor-in-chief and a senior editor at The Federalist. In his book he breaks down much about how we got here as a people… where all that is good, true and beautiful is being destroyed on the altar of an amorphous neo-paganism. The book and the podcast end with a clarion call as to how to live our lives to address reality and not think of our collective future in a post-Christian world as a counsel of despair.

This is our first longform interview podcast, we hope you find it informative and enlightening.

    That was a great interview. Learned so much. I have one thing to add and that is the Left will not allow Martydrom, it causes Christianity to grow. They are going to smear names instead. A communist said that to a Pastor in Bulgaria from the book, “Tortured for His Faith” written in 1972.

  • Jan says:

    Excellent food for thought and good reminders. I’ll be looking for John’s book. Thank you.

  • Jeff butler says:

    “amorphous neo-paganism.” Raise your hand if you can define this obfuscation.

    • Reggie Taylor says:

      Raise your hand if you know what “dictionary” means and how to use one.

    • Jake Libbey says:

      Amorphous means not clearly defined (which it is not as most of its adherents like yourself don’t think deeply enough to even consider the absence of any coherence in your worldview). It is ill-defined by design, for the same reason the left cannot define what a woman is, even though it is utterly obvious to anyone with eyes to see. Our current culture is a manifestation of the rot left in the absence of practiced virtue. Neo is a prefix, and used a prefix it means a new or revised form of something, and Paganism, and what it used to be and has re-emerged as is the entire topic of the interview. Try to keep up.
