Brody: 'Teavangelicals' Care about Social, Fiscal Issues

Ad Feedback

CBN News Chief Political Correspondent David Brody stressed the significance of the "teavangelical" vote in Washington, D.C., as he joined other journalists at the National Press Club to discuss his new book.

Brody coined the phrase "teavangelicals" after covering the rise of the Tea Party and noticing that evangelical Christians widely support the movement.

In his book The Teavangelicals, Brody explains how the Tea Party and its evangelical Christian supporters have become a significant influence in American politics.

Teavangelicals care about social issues, but Brody said the mainstream media often fails to report that they're also concerned about fiscal issues.

"They see it all through a biblical worldview as it relates to returning to fiscal responsibility," he said at the Press Club Wednesday.

"They go to Proverbs and they talk about how a good person leaves an inheritance for their children's children," Brody continued. "They talk about how the borrower is a slave to the lender. I can go on and on with Bible verses, but the point is that is exactly how they see the world."

Brody expects teavangelicals to have a significant impact on the upcoming presidential election.
