RE: Voices: Resist Christian nationalism displayed during assault on U.S. Capitol

I disagree with the editor about a recent headline: “Resist Christian nationalism displayed during assault on U.S. Capitol.”

There is no evidence of “Christianity” on display. There was a display of religious nationalism, same as one might find in a Muslim country like Iran or Saudi Arabia.

This group of terrorists didn’t just hatch overnight. They have been nurtured for years by false prophets and other anti-American figures.



We have known what Donald Trump is for much longer than the four years he has been in office. We know he has complete contempt for the teachings of Jesus and other parts of the Bible, including telling thousands of lies. But some of the most prominent religious figures have bowed down to him and have ignored the Johnson Amendment, as well as the Bible.

We have reaped what was sown.
