Original language with English subtitles
Worldwide, there are already more than 600 million evangelicals. In Switzerland, they have gained tens of thousands of worshippers, while other churches are emptying. In the United States, with Donald Trump, they have never been so close to a president. In Brazil, they succeeded in imposing the right-wing populist Jair Bolsonaro as head of state. In this large family of Protestantism, some focus on the quest for political power, in order to impose their moral values on society. So, are they dangerous, intolerant? Should we be afraid of evangelicals?
