Why Do So Many Christians Believe in QAnon?
/

Conspiracy theories have always been a part of American life and culture, but up until about seven years ago, they existed on the fringes of society. More recently, they have become mainstream.

In fact, through a constellation of accusations and conspiracy theories, an entire movement known as QAnon has been birthed—and with consequences that have been undeniably corrosive to society.

Even still, many Christians have found themselves wrapped up in the various conspiracy theories that are a part of or associated with QAnon.

In this episode, we explore why that might be the case. We offer a brief overview of the history of QAnon, why so many American Christians have become so involved with it, and why we should care.
