Beware of Christian Nationalism

This was written during President Bush’s second term in office.

As you know, I have never disguised my extreme disappointment with administration inWashington.  Of course the good news is that Bush and his cronies will soon be sent packing, forever to serve as an example of what happens when otherwise good citizens, the press and even the opposition party don’t ask and demand answers to tough questions for fear of being labeled “unpatriotic.”

If you feel as I do, 2008 can’t come soon enough, but it would be a grave mistake to assume that a different administration, whether it be Republican or Democratic, will either be able or willing to drive all the demons out of government, because many of those demons fly well below most peoples’ radar screens.

This email concerns one such demon: Christian Nationalism.  I believe that if it continues to function out of view and out of mind it has the potential to create a political disaster that will make Bush and Company look like a walk in the park.

Please,   for the sake of your country, your children and their children, read the   review of Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism.  Here is a link to the full review … http://writ.news.findlaw.com/dean/20060825.html … along   with the first paragraph to whet your appetite:

“If   more Americans would read works like Michelle Goldberg’s Kingdom Coming:   The Rise of Christian Nationalism, the longevity of our democracy, as we   know it, would be more assured. I say this because the more people who   understand the thinking and agenda of the growing forces of “Christian   Nationalism,” the less likely it will be that these forces will succeed.   Not many people want to go where Christian nationalists want to take the country.”

I know I don’t want to go “where Christian nationalists want to take the country” and I suspect you don’t, either.  So if you are concerned about the forces that would steer America in that direction, please talk to your friends about what you’ve read and forward this email to those who may share your view.  Only by making Christian Nationalism part of the national debate can we protect what our Founding Fathers fought so hard to pass on to us.
