Christian Nationalists, Not Christians, Believe Rights Come from God

Politico investigative reporter Heidi Przybyla said Thursday on MSNBC’s “All In” that Christian nationalists are not Christians and believe that rights come from God.

“The base of the Republican Party has changed. When Trump ran in 2016, many mainland evangelicals wanted nothing to do with the divorced real estate mogul who cheated on his wife with a porn star,” Przybyla said. Remember, what happened there was that he was surrounded by more radical elements, and we would hear things like Christian nationalism and new reunions. These are the groups that you should study closely because they have a lot of power around Trump, and there are many different groups around Trump. What unites them as Christian nationalists, not Christians, because that’s the only thing that unites them all. By the way, Christian nationalists are very different, so as Americans, we believe that all human beings The point is that we believe that our rights as such do not come from any earthly authority. They do not come from Congress. They do not come from the Supreme Court, they come from God. ”

She continued, “The problem is that they decide that humans are deciding what God is telling them.” In the past, the so-called natural law was It is a pillar of Catholicism, for example, and has been used for good in social justice movements. The Rev. Martin Luther King, Jr. invoked it when speaking about civil rights.”

Przybyla continued, “But there are now conservative Christian extremist elements who argue that this applies especially to issues including abortion and same-sex marriage, as seen in this week’s Alabama decision, for example.” “And it’s going even further,” he added. The justices had ties to that Dominionist faction and spoke on many other issues, including surrogacy, in vitro fertilization, and sex education in schools. There are many others. ”
