On White Evangelical Protestants [View all]

I found this piece recently, and it is definitely worth a read.

https://www.editorialboard.com/p/for-white-evangelical-protestants


For white evangelical Protestants, the degradation of democracy is not regrettable. It's desirable.

The point is rule by God's chosen.



WEPs (White Evangelical Protestants) are not panicking. They are not embracing anti-democracy out of fear of losing their place in the republic. WEPs are anti-democratic because thatís what it means to be a white evangelical Protestant. Young adherents are leaving not because the faith has become politicized but because they have realized how deeply political the faith already was.

WEPs believe they are Godís chosen (or will be). They tend to believe the United States was given to ďreal AmericansĒ by God to be ruled in His name. Those who are not Godís chosen are pretty much disposable. (After all, He knows who the righteous are.) The WEP identity is furthermore based not so much of what they are but on what they are not. We are not them. They are enmeshed in the world. We live here temporarily until The End. They represent a multiracial republic. We believe Christ is our King. The degradation is democracy isnít regrettable. Itís desirable. Theocracy is the goal.
