Christian nationalism is a term that comes up with increased frequency in U.S. politics. It’s a label that tries to sanitize something very ugly: the goal of a society in which only white Christians of a particular ideology enjoy the full privilege of being an American. To unmask this movement, we turn to an ally from another Christian tradition: Amanda Tyler, executive director of the Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty. Their Christians Against Christian Nationalism campaign seeks to educate all people in the United States, but especially Christians, on why Christian nationalism is incompatible with living out the gospel in our society.
Amanda testified before Congress in 2022 about the ways in which Christian nationalism proves cover for white supremacy. Also, find out what people say to Sr. Eilis all the time!
