A quick glance at American politics and public opinion on White identity should be sufficient to answer the “Christian Question” which says more about those who keep asking it.
“Does Christianity help or hinder, in the words of Sam Francis, “the efforts of the Right to defend the European-American way of life”? According to Giles Corey, that is the Christian Question (p. 2), and The Sword of Christ is his attempt to defend Christianity as not merely compatible with, but essential to, white European civilization. In his statement of “Mission,” Corey makes clear that he is writing for two audiences …
As suggested in this passage, a key part of Corey’s strategy is to distinguish between true and false Christianity, and to claim that only the latter is at odds with white interests. Whether or not he succeeds in proving his case, anyone concerned about the relationship between Christianity and the ethnonationalist Right will find much of interest in this book. …”
Over 80% of Trump voters are White Christians.
Over 3/4ths of the American Right are Christians and the “Far Right” is overwhelmingly Christian and specifically tends to be more evangelical and Protestant.
If you look at rightwing voters who are secular, irreligious, agnostic or atheist (15% to 20% of Republican voters), they are people who are much more likely to have liberal and moderate politics than other conservatives. Religious intensity makes Americans more rightwing. College degrees makes Americans more leftwing. Living in a rural area makes Americans more rightwing. Living in a dense urban coastal city makes Americans more leftwing. Christianity is strongly correlated with social conservatism.
White evangelical Protestants who live in the South are the rightwing pole in American politics. White libtard atheists who live in the East and West Coast are the leftwing pole in American politics. Thus, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that Arkansas votes one way and Massachusetts votes the other way. The most rightwing states are all the places where White evangelical Protestants live and the most leftwing states – places like Vermont, Oregon and Massachusetts – are the most atheist states.
Does Christianity help or hinder “the efforts of the Right to defend the European-American way of life”?
Most people who oppose Third World immigration, who want to deport illegal aliens, who oppose miscegenation, who oppose the MLK federal holiday, who oppose the Great Replacement, who are concerned about anti-White discrimination and who have the warmest feelings toward other Whites are very conservative voters. Those people fall along the familiar spectrum with White evangelical Protestants at one end and White atheists at the other end. Sure, there are woke evangelical elites who adopt African children and preen about racism or people who are Christian Zionists who support Israel, but those people are the exception to the rule. Being a White evangelical Protestant is still strongly correlated with wanting to “defend the European-American way of life” and having the most extreme rightwing politics. This has been the case throughout all of American history and remains true in the present day.
As I have explained several times before, the question makes sense when you realize that secular, irreligious and atheist Whites are overrepresented among White Nationalists, but White people who are secular, irreligious or atheists skew hard to the progressive Left. 95% of atheists might support homosexuality in Pew surveys, but 5% do not. It is this swath of the secular White population, which clashes with the Right because of Christianity, but which doesn’t fit into the Left due its racial views that is always raising the “Christian Question.” They are really outliers among the secular White population who adopt a racial identity instead of going the more typical route into selfish individualism.
The question ought to be … why does being secular or irreligious or agnostic or atheist incline White people who have rejected Christianity to support groups like Antifa and BLM and to support liberalism and progressive politics more generally? How can those people be persuaded to reject liberalism and Wokeism and embrace even milquetoast rightwing politics? It isn’t the politics of people who live in Arkansas and Tennessee who are an anchor who are dragging down the entire country.
If only Christians were allowed to vote in the United States, American politics would shift dramatically to the Right because the Far Left would be politically wiped out. If only White evangelical Protestants were allowed to vote, the country would shift as far as it could go to the Right because only 18% of this group are libtards. If only White atheists were allowed to vote, however, the country would shift hard to the Left because 95% of the electorate would be libtards. Transgenderism would be imposed on every state. There would be draconian hate speech laws. Guns would be confiscated.
Note: Sam Francis was writing from the perspective of the 1990s before the woke Millennial Left became a major factor in American politics.
