Christians Denounce Greene’s Call for Christian Nationalism

Thousands of Christians in the US signed a petition denouncing a lawmaker’s call for Christian nationalism.

Faithful America, an online community of Christians that works towards promoting progressive ideas and social justice, started an online petition rejecting Republican Georgia Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s proposal of Christian nationalism and promoting religion in government, reports OnlySky Media. The petition already has more than 15,000 signatures as of Thursday.

Christian nationalism is unchristian and unpatriotic. –Faithful America

In the petition, the faith-based organization claimed that Greene “essentially declared that America has no place for Jews, Muslims, or the LGBTQ community when she explicitly stated ‘we should be Christian nationalists.'” It pointed out that, “Christian nationalism is unchristian and unpatriotic. It is defined not as a religion but as a political ideology that unconstitutionally and unbiblically merges Christian and American identities, declaring that democracy does not matter because only conservative Christians are true Americans.”

At the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Florida on July 23, Greene said Christian nationalism is a good thing. She argued that, “There’s nothing wrong with leading with your faith….If we do not live our lives and vote like we are nationalists—caring about our country, and putting our country first and wanting that to be the focus of our federal government—if we do not lead that way, then we will not be able to fix it.”

“We need to be the party of nationalism and I’m a Christian, and I say it proudly, we should be Christian nationalists,” the GOP lawmaker said in a interview.

Rep. Adam Kinzinger (R-IL) called Greene’s comments as the “American Taliban.” He tweeted: “There is no difference between this and the Taliban. We must opposed [sic] the Christian Taliban. I say this as a Christian.”

Minister Rev. Chuck Currie from Oregon also criticized the Georgia lawmaker’s call. “”Jesus was for all the world, not one nation.Beware false teachers like Greene. She dances with the devil.”

Faithful America maintained that, “America is not a Christian nation but a nation of religious liberty and pluralism.”

The group issued a press statement saying, “Christianity is a force for love, equality, and justice, not authoritarianism, lies, and hatred. As her siblings in Christ, we condemn Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene for her repeated abuse and misuse of our faith to seize power, we reject the Christian nationalist claim that America is a Christian nation, and we oppose all efforts to divide Americans and turn back the clock on equal rights.”
