Watching a mob threaten assassination of our leaders as they over-run the US Capitol on January 6, 2021, many shocked Americans asked "how did we ever get here?" In this talk, listeners are asked to look at religion as a fluid component of culture rather than a fixed set of beliefs, the influence of which extends far beyond what we think of as the boundaries of its adherents. This approach will allow us to see how aspects of one form of American Christianity and its apocalyptic anticipation, conspiracism and persecution narratives made us receptive to the wild claims of Qanon, putting democracy at risk.
