’Handmaid’s Tale’ part two: Is Serena Joy misunderstood or evil?

Season 3, Ep. 59: Spoilers! This is the second part of our conversation about the TV series “The Handmaid’s Tale” (which will release a new season this year). It’s in our occasional series on pop culture and faith, and in this episode, the Rev. Dr. Leah Schade returns to explore the fictional theocratic society Gilead. We unpack the show and its religious underpinnings, and ask the question is Gilead really Christian? Rev. Schade and I talk about serious and disturbing subjects, including rape, slavery, and using religion to propagate dangerous beliefs. Be advised.
