Christian Nationalism:  The Latest Bugaboo of the Left

According to a “bugaboo” is a noun:  A source of concern “the old bugaboo of inflation still bothers them–type of concern, headache, vexation, worry -something or someone that causes anxiety, a source of unhappiness.

The Left does an excellent job promoting bugaboos especially in the wake of the election of Congressman Mike Johnson to Speaker of the House of Representatives. The recent bugaboo off the Left used to scare its donors is Christian Nationalism. An on-line search for the term will lead to a plethora of articles from the usual suspects:  The New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, and the pens of clergy in liberal Christian churches -the ones that consider the U.S flag a symbol of hate but fly the banner of the anti-Semitic Black Lives Matter.

According to Brian Karem a columnist at Salon, Chrisitan Nationalism is a bigger threat to the United States than Hamas.


So, what is Chrisitan Nationalism, and should we be concerned that these Chistian Nationalists are on the verge of taking over the United States and setting up a theocracy? If you ask a staff writer from the sources mentioned about or the ladies on “The View”  or a theological professor at an Ivy League college or an anchor on CNN,  and MSNBC,  they will tell you that Christian Nationalism is the believe that the United States was founded as a Christian nation and only Christians should be allowed to live here.   They may even add the word “white” to convince you that this dangerous movement about to destroy democracy is racist as well. Here is how Wikipedia defines it:

 “Christian nationalism is a type of religious nationalism that is affiliated with Christianity, in which the end goal is to achieve a Christian theocracy within a society. It primarily focuses on the internal politics of society, such as legislating civil and criminal laws that reflect their view of Christianity and the role of religion in political and social life.

And according to the Left, if you are flying one of these flags, you are most likely a Christian Nationalist:



A perusal of our nation’s organic documents proves that the United States was founded by those of the Chrisian faith. Here are just a few examples:

Mayflower Compact 1620:

IN THE NAME OF GOD, AMEN. We, whose names are underwritten, the Loyal Subjects of our dread Sovereign Lord King James, by the Grace of God, of Great BritainFrance, and Ireland, King, Defender of the Faith, &c. Having undertaken for the Glory of God, and Advancement of the Christian Faith, and the Honour of our King and Country, a Voyage to plant the first Colony in the northern Parts of Virginia; Do by these Presents, solemnly and mutually, in the Presence of God and one another, covenant and combine ourselves together into a civil Body Politick…”


  Fundamental Orders of Connecticut 1639

FORASMUCH as it hath pleased the Almighty God by the wise disposition of his divine providence so to Order and dispose of things that we the Inhabitants and Residents of Windsor, Harteford and Wethersfield are now cohabiting and dwelling in and upon the River of Connecticut and the Lands thereunto adjoining; And well knowing where a people are gathered together the word of God requires that to maintain the peace and union of such a people there should be an orderly and decent Government established according to God,,, to maintain and pressure the liberty and purity of the gospel of our Lord Jesus which we now profess…”

The Declaration of Independence:

We hold these truths to be self-evident that all men are created equal, and they are endowed by their creator with certain unalienable rights.

Massachusetts State Constitution:

  Article II.

It is the right as well as the duty of all men in society, publicly, and at stated seasons to worship the Supreme Being, the great Creator and Preserver of the universe. And no subject shall be hurt, molested, or restrained, in his person, liberty, or estate, for worshipping God in the manner and season most agreeable to the dictates of his own conscience; or for his religious profession or sentiments; provided he doth not disturb the public peace, or obstruct others in their religious worship.

New Hampshire State Constitution:

[Art.] 6. [Morality and Piety.] As morality and piety, rightly grounded on high principles, will give the best and greatest security to government, and will lay, in the hearts of men, the strongest obligations to due subjection; and as the knowledge of these is most likely to be propagated through a society, therefore, the several parishes, bodies, corporate, or religious societies shall at all times have the right of electing their own teachers, and of contracting with them for their support or maintenance, or both. But no person shall ever be compelled to pay for the support of the schools of any sect or denomination. And every person, denomination or sect shall be equally under the protection of the law; and no subordination of any one sect, denomination, or persuasion to another shall ever be established.


   George Washington’s farewell address:

“…Of all the dispositions and habits which lead to political prosperity, Religion and morality are indispensable supports. In vain would that man claim the tribute of Patriotism, who should labor to subvert these great Pillars of human happiness…”


And, in a letter to Massachusetts Militia officers, President John Adams wrote:

“Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other.”[1] Morality and virtue are the foundation of our republic and necessary for a society to be free…”

I have been a Christian for most of my adult life and have been involved in Patriotic organizations since 1988. While the political and theological views of people that make up the Christian church and the Patriot movement vary widely, I do not know of any group of Christians whose goal is to set up some sort of Christian Republic excluding all others. Indeed, the vast majority of those the Left call Christian Nationalists are sympathetic to the State of Israel and either serve or support missionaries all over the world.

     Contrary to the teaching of International Atheists, Christians are instructed to live peaceably with their neighbors, to love their neighbors and to pray for their enemies. Christians have the duty to speak out against the “unfruitful works or darkness,” (Ephesians 5:11) and an obligation to fulfill the Great Commission where they are commanded to “make disciples off all nations.” (Mathew 28:19-22). I think that troubles the Atheist Internationalists the most.

To use a sports analogy:  Christians, have, for the most part, been sitting on the sidelines, while the Left has dominated the playing field.  But conservative Christians are now in the game and putting points on the board. This frightens the Left and they have a need to promote fear and hatred of Chrisian conservatives. That fear and hatred has been manifested in the Biden Administration with its weaponization of the Justice Department. But, as we are told by our Lord in Matthew 16,  “The Gates of Hell shall not prevail.”
