Religion vs. Christian Nationalism
Religion itself presents a certain amount of issues, but Christian nationalism takes it to the next step. When people start merging Christianity with American, it becomes a problem. The far right is getting to a place where the Venn diagram is basically just a circle. We’re headed in a dangerous direction with the “us vs. them” mentality. From a ReligionNews.com article:
“Christian nationalists have indicated over several studies that … they are more likely to believe in conspiracy theories, more likely to distrust the media and more likely to distrust scientists and feel like there’s some kind of conspiratorial agenda that is behind all of that,” said Samuel Perry, associate professor of sociology at the University of Oklahoma, in an interview.
When you take that into account and couple it with a president who repeatedly hammers that narrative, it is worrisome. Read the full article HERE.
Do you like satire? I do. Well, it seems like God made a partner for Ronald McDonald from a McRib. Full story HERE.
Do you have 2 minutes and 22 seconds to spare? Trust me, it’ll be worth it. This video about Tarvuism made me laugh out loud. It came out in 2008, yet somehow I’d never seen it until this week!

It means so much that you enjoy my content. I’m almost done with the series where I read Revelation (trying to see if there’s anything to this ‘the world is ending’ garbage that Christians are spewing).

I hope you have a great rest of your Sunday and great week!
