White Christian Nationalism and Its Threat to Democracy
November 26, 2023 | 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Dan Bice, Journal Sentinel watchdog columnist for 32 years.
Why do so many conservative Christians continue to support Donald Trump despite his many overt moral failings? Why do many Americans advocate so vehemently for xenophobic policies, such as a border wall with Mexico? Why do many Americans seem so unwilling to acknowledge the injustices that ethnic and racial minorities experience in the United States?
The answer to all of these is White Christian Nationalism. In this talk, we’ll discuss the movement, its demographics, how popular it is and its goals for America. We’ll also confront two myths about White Christian Nationalism: (1) its adherents are crazy; and (2) this is a small, fringe movement. The fact is White Christian Nationalism is a major political force that we need to understand better. Host: Jerry Fredrickson
