After Father Coughlin was shut down, another anti-Communist Christian leader rose in his place – James Fifield aka “The Apostle to Millionaires”, aka “St. Paul of the Prosperous” aka “the Thirteenth Apostle of Big Business”. Unlike Father Coughlin, Fifield was happy to associate himself with rich capitalists – and to take their money to pay for his mansion, his butler, and his limousine. It was Fifield – and his rich patrons – who cracked the code of how to associate Christianity with Capitalism in the minds of Americans – and to make America a Christian nation “Under God”.
