Christian Nationalism: Why is this Right Different from all Other Rights?
Sunday, March 26th, 4-5:30pm
Biltmore Park Clubhouse, 1067 Columbine Rd, 28803
Description: The rise of Christian Nationalism has created quite a stir across the country. Nationally, some politicians make clear their preference for a country in which Christian “values” and beliefs provide the blueprint for the nation. On the local level, faith-based organizations are indeed putting those thoughts into action with book bans, anti-abortion laws, a blurring of the lines between Church and State, and attempts to roll back protections for gay, non-binary and transgender communities. In short, it’s a hot mess!
But the fact is: While labels and battles may have changed, Christian Nationalism has been a part of America since 1620, when the Mayflower came ashore. The question is, is this time different? This Sunday, Torah on Tap looks at the history of Christian Nationalism and whether this time may be different.
Note: Change of Venue: This month, we will be meeting at the Biltmore Park Clubhouse, 1067 Columbine Road, 28803. Thanks to Steve and Carol Kayne for coordinating. Feel free to BYOB (bring your own beverage/beer). Sorry, no BYOD (your own dog).
