I don’t know how to explain Trumpvangelicals apart from white Christianity’s long history of justifying and defending white supremacy. How else do you reconcile “America first” with “the last shall be first”?
We publicly declare that what we hold in common in this confession is threatened by the festering infection of Eurocentric white nationalism and white supremacy.
Today the colonizing spirit leads Christian conferences to flash all (or nearly all) white speaker lineups without a blush, promote white worship music as the gold Christian standard around the world, and build mega churches in the mold of mega malls and amusement parks that serve hundreds of thousands music and scripture disconnected from parishioners’ local contexts and needs.
The odd thing about this is that ALL of these people have pre-existing conditions. All of these beautiful, unlikely, remembered people whom Jesus touched had something wrong with them before he came along.
