In her weekend 60-minute interview, Marjorie Taylor Greene reaffirmed her belief the U.S. was founded as a Christian nation which she believes the government is not sufficiently espousing. She speaks out for several Christian nationalism’s beliefs such as hostility to all immigration and sympathy for the January 6 violent insurrectionists.

Lauren Boebert is a regular speaker at Christian nationalist events and states she is “tired of this separation of church and state junk.” She calls on Christians to “rise up and take our place in Christ and influence this nation.”

  • 1 in 10 Americans are adherents to Christian nationalism.
  • Another 19% are sympathizers.
  • 66% of sympathizers believe immigrants are “invading our country and replacing our culture and ethnic background.”
  • 16% of Americans believe “things have gotten so far off track true American patriots may have to resort to violence in order to save our country.”

We need to send the christian nationalists to the FEMA re√ęducation camps. What was the point of Obama building them?
