Five takeaways from the Report on Christian Nationalism and January 6 – Baptist News Global


On Feb. 9, Baptist Joint Committee for Religious Liberty, in tandem with their movement “Christians Against Christian Nationalism” and in partnership with the Freedom From Religion Foundation, held a livestreamed event that introduced their new comprehensive report on the influence of Christian nationalism in the Jan. 6, 2021, insurrection at the U.S. Capitol. After some introductory chapters on Christian nationalism itself, the report describes, in stunning detail, the central role Christian imagery and personal influencers played that day and in the lead-up to it. The images and firsthand accounts leave no doubt that the presence of this distorted, militant version of Christianity was not just present in the crowd but was front and center — literally — in many events and online forums for two months after the Nov. 3, 2020, election, up to and including Jan. 6.
