A group formed by Christian leaders is warning against the rise of “Christian nationalism,” saying the merging of Christian and American identities poses a threat to U.S. democracy and religious communities.
“As Christians, we are bound to Christ, not by citizenship, but by faith,” Christians Against Christian Nationalism’s statement reads.
“Whether we worship at a church, mosque, synagogue, or temple, America has no second-class faiths. All are equal under the U.S. Constitution.”
The statement is endorsed by at least 17 Christian leaders from various churches and organizations, according to the group’s website.
The leaders say “Christian nationalism” seeks to bind Christianity and American citizenship in a way that “provides cover for white supremacy and racial subjugation.”
“Christian nationalism demands Christianity be privileged by the State and implies that to be a good American, one must be Christian,” the group said in its statement.
The group’s credo includes a list of beliefs centered around the Constitution’s religious equality and calls on Christians to “reject this damaging political ideology.”
Among the groups endorses is the Rev. Michael B. Curry, the bishop who presided over the wedding of Prince Harry and Meghan Markle.
“The violence, intimidation and distortion of scripture associated with ‘Christian nationalism’ does not reflect the person and teachings of Jesus Christ,” Curry said.
I went to the site to see who the endorsers are; amongst a mix of various liberal mainlines, Baptists, black Protestant church leaders, and a liberal Catholic, I found leftvangelicals Tony Campolo and Jim Wallis.
Vox Day commented:
It won’t be even remotely surprising to discover that their funding is coming from distinctly not-Christian sources, most likely the same people who fund the (((Edmund Burke Institute))) Nationalism is under attack by the globalist gatekeepers and Christian nationalism will be targeted by the Churchians.
Well and good. We have the truth, the Bible, history, science, and Jesus Christ on our side. They have lies, usury, and elite pedos on theirs. I like our odds.
Notice how they can’t even bear to state the name of Jesus Christ. That’s because they serve a very different god.
(Note that the Evangelical Immigration Table link is now broken, but here is what it looked like; note it includes Jim Wallis’ organization Sojourners, though he seems to not be on board that organization today… But Russell Moore still is… Still shilling for Soros…)
I see he has not only left the Faith, but gone Woke as well.
It is notable that when you can find an ending to a story, and unfortunately we have a sad one in Joshua Harris, as he has divorced from his wife Shannon.
This might not be ordinarily note-worthy among the legions of divorces that happen in this country, but this one is special as he has written two books with the intent to instruct people on how to do “the dating thing” (specifically courtship) correctly with the point of producing Godly lasting marriages, both of which have gotten reviews here:
And other posts have been done on the text of his first book:
Given all the analysis above, sadly, this news was completely and wholly expected, given the content…

Regular readers of this blog will remember my rant about convenience stores last summer.
I’ve had some more observations in the year since, on how convenience stores today are run, compared to yesteryear, when convenience stores in Canada were still mostly run by Canadians.
(These don’t apply as much to ones that are chains, like 7-Eleven or Circle K / Mac’s / Couche-Tard, which tend to be similar to yesteryear in the fundamentals, while offering more choice than then, of course…)
I’ve noticed, with independent convenience stores run by Asians, whether of the eastern or southern variety, that more often now than in independent stores in yesteryear, there is much less air-conditioning employed, if at all, even.
Possibly to save money, and/or encourage buying cold beverages…
But I think there’s another reason, though…
The thought occurs: back when more independent convenience stores were owned by Canadians, they turned the air-conditioning on to temperatures that suited the tastes of both employees / owners and customers, because both were mostly Canadians, who wanted, on a hot humid summer day, to be comfortable while indoors – whether, in the case of customers, for a brief moment as they dashed in to buy something; or whether employees / owners, because they were stuck in there all day, so might as well be comfortable.
However, now, virtually all of the independent convenience stores are run by Asians, many of whom are accustomed to both higher temperatures and greater humidity levels than North Americans.
You can see where I’m going with this: I submit that the reason so many convenience stores today are warmer and more humid and thus more musty-smelling, than in yesteryear, is due to the tastes of the owners and employees.
If anyone ever goes in a grocery store that is aimed at East Asian, South Asian, or Middle-Eastern communities (I sometimes do), one immediately notices that they tend not to use much air conditioning in those places, either; often none at all, in fact. (And those places can really have strong smells, not just because of the foreign foodstuffs that are seeming more odorous than our own, but of course because of the lack of aircon…)
And so it’s only natural, surely, when the same people run independent convenience stores that they end up behaving similarly in them.
(Not to mention Asiatic pop music, which I mostly find irritating, esp. high-pitched female voices in those cultures… At least they don’t have as much smelly foods as in their own groceries, though. Small mercies, for now…)
Anyway, just something else I’ve noticed. Another consequence of unimpeded high immigration levels, wide open borders…
