A petition denouncing Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene’s adherence to Christian nationalism had more than 12,000 Christian signatures. The petition condemns Christian nationalism as a political doctrine, calling it “unchristian and disloyal.” Greene has urged the Republican party to embrace Christian nationalism on numerous occasions. Morning Brew is read by more than 3 million people; you should too! More than 12,000 people have signed a petition against Representative Marjorie Taylor Greene’s endorsement of Christian nationalism, which the organization referring to as “unchristian and unpatriotic” has called for.
On Thursday, an online petition criticizing Greene’s view of faith and politics was published by Faithful America, an online Christian group that strives to advance progressive views and social justice.
The petition, which has 12,00 signatures as of Sunday, claims that “Christian nationalism is unchristian and unpatriotic.” It is described as a political philosophy that unconstitutionally and unbiblically combines Christian and American identities and claims that only conservative Christians are authentic Americans, rather than as a religion.
Greene argued last week that the Republican party should embrace Christian nationalism.
In a recent interview, Greene stated, “We need to be the party of nationalism and I’m a Christian, and I say it gladly, we should be Christian nationalists.
According to Christianity Today , Christian nationalism is “the view that the American nation is characterized by Christianity, and that the government should actively work to maintain that view.”
Greene’s remarks were compared to the “American Taliban” by Rep. Adam Kinzinger.
Also criticizing the Georgia lawmaker for promoting Christian nationalism in her political remarks, an Oregon priest referred to it as “a racist ideology incompatible with Christianity.”
Minister Rev. Chuck Currie stated that “Jesus was for all the world, not one nation.” “Be wary of con artists like Greene. She performs a devil’s dance.”
Greene and other Christian nationalist leaders were accused in the petition by Faithful America of worshipping “the false idol of power with the ultimate goal of securing all authority for themselves and those like them.”
Faithful America released a statement claiming that Rep. Greene had repeatedly demonstrated that she was an antisemitic white supremacist who opposed religious freedom for everyone but herself and her fellow right-wing Christians.
