William Jennings Bryan, 1896 Presidential Campaign

William Jennings Bryan is a figure from American history that isn’t easy to figure out. On the one hand, he was politically a Liberal’s Liberal: A populist that fought against big corporations, big banks, and imperialism, while advocating a larger Federal government, Federal income taxes, and inheritance taxes. On the other hand, he was a staunch Fundamentalist where Christianity was concerned. Bryan understood two things very clearly: First, that Darwinism threatened to undermine the foundations of Christianity, and second, that Social Darwinism was a menace to the whole of mankind. He spent the last twenty years of his career fighting against Darwinism, and championing the truth of the Bible. Whatever we may think of his politics, William Jennings Bryan was a passionate defender of the Christian faith.
