Right Wing Round-Up: Christian Nationalism Overload

  • Robert Downen @ The Texas Tribune: At Texas GOP convention, Republicans call for spiritual warfare
  • At the three-day convention, delegates moved the needle further to the right, preaching Christian nationalism and approving rules that would give them unprecedented control of elections.

  • Tess Owen @ Religion News Service: MyChurchFinder is an online directory to Christian nationalist congregations
  • To receive an A rating, pastors must demonstrate that they lead a ‘biblically sound, culturally aware & non-socialistic legislatively active church.’ Failing to meet any of those criteria earns a church a ‘WNR’ — ‘Would Not Recommend.’

  • Paul Rosenberg @ Salon: Cracking the Christian nationalist code: A glossary for the confused
  • The Christian right has a clearly anti-democratic agenda — but it’s concealed with deliberately confusing terms.

  • Judd Legum @ Popular Info: Florida educators trained to teach students Christian nationalism
  • Training materials produced by the Florida Department of Education direct middle and high school teachers to indoctrinate students in the tenets of Christian nationalism, a right-wing effort to merge Christian and American identities.

  • Andrew Perez and Tessa Stuart @ Rolling Stone: GOP Officials Are Outsourcing Their Lawsuits to a Far-Right Christian Group
  • Conservative public officials are hiring the Alliance Defending Freedom to lead their culture war lawsuits — and handle their public statements.

  • Hemant Mehta @ Friendly Atheist: Christian zealot who destroyed Satanic display in Iowa Capitol accepts plea deal
  • Michael Cassidy will avoid jail time and a hate crime charge, but he has to plead guilty.

  • Elizabeth Dias and Lisa Lerer @ The New York Times Magazine: The Untold Story of the Network That Took Down Roe v. Wade
  • A conservative Christian coalition’s plan to end the federal right to abortion began just days after Trump’s 2016 election.

  • Angry White Men: Elijah Schaffer Leans Into Holocaust Denial
  • Far-right propagandist Elijah Schaffer has not been shy about his antisemitic beliefs, having blamed Jews for “destroy[ing] our Western civilization” and controlling the Atlantic slave trade. More recently, however, Schaffer has turned his Rumble show into a platform for Nazi apologia and Holocaust denial.

Every day, Right Wing Watch exposes extremism to help the public, activists, and journalists understand the strategies and tactics of anti-democratic forces—and respond to an increasingly aggressive and authoritarian far-right movement. The threat is growing, but our resources are not. Any size contribution will help us continue our work and become more effective at disrupting the ideologies, people, and organizations that threaten our freedom and democracy. Please make an investment in Right Wing Watch’s defense of the values we share.
