 The Ideology of Christian Nationalism: The Teachings of Jesus, Religious Pluralism, and World Peace  –  Mark Benson

What specifically is the ideology of Christian-nationalism?  What explains its rising appeal?  How do the teachings of Jesus relate to the ideology of Christian-nationalism? What themes in the gospels provide light about the message of Jesus concerning greed, power, and change? Beyond its unfounded theology, how does Christian-nationalism contradict democratic ideals, undermine individual sovereignty, promote state control, enable domestic violence, and threaten peace around the world.  Who are the people of influence who can counteract the ideology of Christian-nationalism?  What strategies can UUs use to promote religious pluralism and activate faith leaders toward goals based in equality and inclusion to make a better world?
