Statistics show white evangelicals are the religious group most likely to subscribe to the most extreme tenets of QAnon, including resorting to violence to "save" the country. Why is this?

Secular AZ recently sat down with Dr. Mia Bloom, author of Pastels and Pedophiles: Inside the Mind of QAnon to talk conspiracy theories in Christian socio-political movements. The conversation illuminated not-always-obvious connections between conspiracy theory culture and religious belief—as well as surprising links between QAnon, reconstruction-era racism, mental illness, and the global pandemic.

We compiled the key takeaways from the talk our blog. Check them out below and learn more about this phenomenon—as well as what is driving our movement to focus more on intersectional causes and community building to combat religious extremism.
