Jesus was not and never will be a Christian Nationalist

On Friday, May 3, 2024, The Rt. Rev. Dr. Bonnie A. Perry delivered a keynote to the attendees of the Women Confronting Racism’s Annual Conference. The theme of the conference was: White Christian Nationalism: Politics Masquerading as Religion?

Remarks from The Rt. Rev. Dr. Bonnie A. Perry

Christian Nationalism is not a religion. It is certainly not Christianity. Christian Nationalism is a political ideology committed to holding onto and acquiring political power in order to maintain conservative ideals and preserve the rule of what will soon be a white minority in the United States of America.
