Jesus was born in the Middle East.— John Pavlovitz (@johnpavlovitz) July 16, 2022
He didn’t speak English.
He wasn’t white.
He wasn’t Evangelical.
He wasn’t a Republican.
He wasn’t American.
Heck, he wasn’t even Christian.

At this weekend’s Trump rally, the crowd cheered turning their religious beliefs into law to ban abortion. Yet Democrats refuse to call this what it is: Christian Nationalism.— (((DeanObeidallah))) (@DeanObeidallah) July 24, 2022
Democracy and Christian nationalism can NOT co-exist.
In a healthy multiracial democracy, Gab CEO Andrew Torba would be politically radioactive. In the United States in 2022, though, he is a paid campaign consultant for the Republican nominee for governor of Pennsylvania. https://t.co/61HpDvA7Zs— Christopher Mathias (@letsgomathias) July 15, 2022

Christian leaders who have stayed silent should step up and denounce Christian nationalism/fascism and the threat it poses to not only their religion but also democracy and the US.— Wajahat Ali (@WajahatAli) July 24, 2022

“We don’t want our country to be run by Muslims and Hindus and atheists.” They can only “co-exist” with the Christians in charge.

Have some stats!— Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg (@TheRaDR) July 24, 2022
Of the 26 states that will have or likely will ban abortion now, 18 of those states have anti-trans laws; 19 have passed greater voter restrictions laws; All 26 states have disproportionate amounts of infant mortality especially for Black women.
The states pushing abortion bans are the poorest in the union with the highest child poverty rates; All 26 states have passed or are considering state-wide bans on critical race theory.— Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg (@TheRaDR) July 24, 2022
All 26 states have Republican supermajority (13) or simple majority (13) which gives the power pass or veto any legislation; 11 did not expand Medicaid, most in the South where 56% of Black people live; 7 of the 13 states w/trigger laws viz overturning of Roe are from confederacy— Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg (@TheRaDR) July 24, 2022
11 of the states have anti-sanctuary laws against undocumented immigrants. All 26 states have anti-protest legislation. Most of the anti-abortion states rank in the 50 percentile for pre-K-12 education.— Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg (@TheRaDR) July 24, 2022
An average of 70 percent of people in in the 26 states go to church at least once a month. White Christian nationalism drives the spat of legislation that seeks to return the United States to a pre-Civil Rights movement era.— Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg (@TheRaDR) July 24, 2022
Please, folks, understand:— Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg (@TheRaDR) July 24, 2022
The rise of white Christian nationalism is terrifying for a lot of us for different ways.
YES, BIPOC, for good reason.
YES, LGBTQIA ppl, for good reason.
But also– religious minorities (some of whom are BIPOC and/or LGBTQIA!).
See it, get it.
I'll keep saying it: WE ALL HAVE TO STICK TOGETHER.— Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg (@TheRaDR) July 24, 2022
DEFEATING CHRISTIAN NATIONALISM IS A GROUP PROJECT.
But please, just see where religious minorities are viz impact, is the ask, that's all. Because I think a lot of raised-Christian or currently Christian folks don't yet see it.

DO NOT DUMP THIS GARBAGE AT ME WHILE CHRISTIANS ARE BUSY COMING AT MY PEOPLE

People who don't recognize how frightening this is–that this is now just getting said out loud, casually, like this–should go try to figure that out. https://t.co/eFPDpcsTIb— Rabbi Danya Ruttenberg (@TheRaDR) July 24, 2022
