Politics and religion. Two things you're not supposed to talk about, because whenever people do it seems to end up in arguments😠, fights👊 and - worst of all - flame wars on social media🔥🔥🔥

What you really need is some calm, objective and informed chat from two people who've been in the game long enough to know what they're talking about. Unfortunately, you've got us instead ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

The Holy Political Podcast is a fortnightly podcast about Christianity and politics. We interview some of the most interesting and impressive Christians in UK politics today, discuss political questions affecting Christians, and look at the good, bad and bizarre ways Christians get involved in politics.

It's mainly accurate, somewhat entertaining, and hopefully helpful. Give it a try! 🎧👌😁

For our second summer special, we continue chatting to Dr Stephen Backhouse about whether patriotism is a Christian virtue, or whether Christians should steer well clear.

In this second half, we look at how Christians should think about engagement in local communities and national politics, we look at whether you can have a Christian patriotism, and we also look at liberalism as a political option for Christians, and Brexit. And then we close with Stephen summing up why he thinks patriotism can be dangerous for Christians. Enjoy!
