For God and Country – How Christians Are Addressing Christian Nationalism and its Role in Divisions and Polarization in the United States
Many scholars and reporters noted the overt symbols of Christian Nationalism on display at the January 6th Capitol insurrection. The events brought into sharp focus the role of Christian nationalism on divisions and polarization in the United States. This session will explore Christian nationalism (and Christian nationalists) and their role in driving divisions and toxic polarization. The session will also address what Christian groups are doing to address these divisions and build peace.
