Kathleen Wellman - The Christian Right has Hijacked History

Dr. Kathleen Wellman stops by to discuss her book Hijacking History: How the Christian Right Teaches History and Why It Matters. The subject matter, for Casey, is deeply personal, being taught in Christian schools with Abeka Book curricula from junior high school to graduation. History, in the world of right-wing Christian education is...shall we say...unique. Ever wondered how Moses, John Calvin and Thomas Aquinas led directly to the founding of America? Ever wondered why Capitalism is a gift from God and Communism/Socialism/The New Deal is directly from the pit of hell?

You've come to the right place!


Kathleen Wellman is Dedman Family Distinguished Professor of History and Altshuler Distinguished Teaching Professor at Southern Methodist University
