An 'imposter Christianity' is threatening American democracy

One of the banners spotted at the January 6 insurrection was a replica of the American flag with the caption, "Jesus is My Savior, Trump is My President."
Erasing the line separating piety from politics is a key characteristic of White Christian nationalism. Many want to reduce or erase the separation of church and state, say those who study the movement.
One of the most popular beliefs among White Christian nationalists is that the US was founded as a Christian nation; the Founding Fathers were all orthodox, evangelical Christians; and God has chosen the US for a special role in history.

  1. While the Founders were careful about separation of Church and State, they were all devout X-ians, expected X-ian style culture to be the dominant culture in the US and that the US was chosen for a special role in history, something that has happened. So yeah, they might be onto something.
