Europe in May 1941. Half a year before the US entered WWII. This map explains beautifully why (rightfully so) Britain saw / sees itself as the sole defender of Europe during WWII. (Green = allied area; red = soviet area; black = nazi area) Source:

I've got a new book out this fall that details how the religious right taught America to misread the Bible. 1st review is from... you guessed it, the Institute for Religion & Democracy, which religious right funders started as their outreach to Mainline churches in the 80s.

In 2018, 15,748 Christian refugees entered the US, a 36.4% decline from the previous year & a 55% decline from fiscal year 2016. Maintaining a robust refugee resettlement program matters for people who have been persecuted for their faith.

Yes, they're petri dish for particular stream of dead end revisionist Protestantism. Helpful warning to impatient orthodox Christians tempted towards deviations.

As I argue in the article: "Despite a rather large number of cases to choose from, neither religious pluralism nor religious freedom has emerged in the absence of fundamental political freedoms" The former are impossible without the latter

Who knew how much the Russian Orthodox Church had permeated Russia's nuclear defense industry, its nuclear forces, the Ministry of Defense custodians of nuclear weapons, and elements of both its military and civilian space programs?
