Im not sure what all this angry, chest-thumping, bullying, dont tread on me thing that weve come to call Christianity is, but heres what I do know:
It isnt the Gospel.
It isnt Good News for the poor and marginalized.
It isnt the Prince of Peace.
It isnt the perfect love that casts out fear.
It isnt Jesus by any measure.
Its a toxic cocktail of power, control, fear, nationalism, and white privilegeand it looks much more like the bloated opulence of Rome than the early Church that resisted it.
People have said that the MAGA Evangelical movement has hijacked Jesus but I dont believe thats true. They have hijacked the word Christian. Jesus is of no use to them.
