French Friday: The 14th Amendment & the Evangelical Approach to Politics

Updated: Jan 4

A number of cases are being fought in the courts right now over whether Donald Trump violated the 14th amendment and if he should be allowed on the ballot in the 2024 election. David French and Skye Jethani discuss the history of the 14th amendment, break down the current cases against Trump, and talk about the likelihood of the Supreme Court hearing the case, and what decision they might make. Then, they talk about new Speaker of the House, Mike Johnson, and his view on how the Bible informs his politics. Have Evangelical Republicans lost their way by focusing too much on what they think the Bible says about issues and policies, and not enough on what the Bible actually says about virtues?

I like French Fridays a lot, especially how David reviews the range of views that are out there.


Skye, you mentioned Coke and Pepsi regarding equality of outcome. This was in response to the idea of equality of time for each side specifically it was thought the right needed to be reigned in.

If Coke is given 1 ft of shelf space while Pepsi gets 39 ft, hard to say that that is equal access to the platform.

Wasn't that the argument that man in the '60s made that the conservatives had too much " shelf space"?

I always appreciate French Fridays


Thanks for the podcast
