On “Christian Nationalism”

The principal book on “Christian Nationalism” apparently argues for a Christian ethnostate to secede from the US according to the book review linked below.

In politics, it’s better to avoid white nationalism but simply count on the future red-state federation to allow each state to determine who is a citizen and who can naturalize. You might prefer a state that’s already more White, and hope that that state would not give citizenship to Mississippians in general, or Black Mississippians in particular.

This allows the movement to use the state governments that already exist. It probably avoids any forced migration (except people who aren’t US citizens or maybe naturalized US citizens). It’s realistic in the near-term. It allows Southern Whites (Southrons) to continue to live in Southern culture states if they choose to do so despite the demographics.

Without compromises such as these, no one has the power to create a white ethnostate except to wait for a race war (or Heaven forbid, create one).

In other words, we don’t have to work for white nationalism, or white Christian nationalism, if there is no such thing as federal citizenship & residency, only state citizenship & residency. Some states will be more Christian, and hopefully one will let me be a citizen there. This blog is devoutly Protestant.

But our federation should not exclude red states that are less Christian or less White, because every red state is helpful to resist bullying by the blue states and other powers, as explained in our previous article.

The term “Christian Nationalism” was created and designed by Leftist journalists to be a smear term that sounds like “white nationalism.” It’s politically toxic. Finally, I understand why some right-wingers decided to adopt it anyway… they aren’t focused on politics or near-term activism and they are apparently not afraid to be called a white nationalist.

The idea that government should be biblical is just a part of Biblical Civics and can be called Biblical civics.

The following book review says Stephen Wolfe defines “nation” as an ethnicity, (but historically, ethnostates don’t enforce total ethnic purity).

Wolfe offers no hope that American Christian nationalists can take over the United States of America, but localities are another matter. He observes that “there is at least one Christian nation in America” (399). This Christian “nation,” existing within the boundaries of the United States, could “will” itself into existence (176, 181). One practical step in this direction would be for state governors to “resist and nullify unjust and tyrannical laws imposed on the people by the federal government” (473)

Here’s the review. It’s well-done: https://americanreformer.org/2022/12/stephe
