Christians against Christian Nationalism
« on: August 01, 2019, 10:44:59 PM »
This is refreshing:

Quote
Members of a group known as Christians Against Christian Nationalism released a statement on Monday relaying its mission and asking other Christians to join them. “Christian nationalism seeks to merge Christian and American identities, distorting both the Christian faith and America’s constitutional democracy,” the statement reads. “It often overlaps with and provides cover for white supremacy and racial subjugation. We reject this damaging political ideology and invite our Christian brothers and sisters to join us in opposing this threat to our faith and to our nation.”

#notallchristians, eh?

These folks will just be dismissed by the Trump Christians as lacking a proper understanding of the Bible, just as they do with Buttigieg. Right wing evangelicals have a long history of claiming that Christians they don't agree with are not "true" Christians.

I am glad to see any effort on the part of other Christians to stand up and oppose the Dominionist arsewipes, though.

No true Scotsman.
If religions were TV channels atheism is turning the TV off.

Remember, your inability to grasp science is not a valid argument against it.
