Trump and Christian Nationalist Voters: Theocracy at any price

This is from a series of research papers on the subject of Christian Nationalism. The quoted paragraphs are from a working paper entitled "Make America Christian Again: Christian Nationalism and Voting for Donald Trump in the 2016 Election.

"...The paper, if proven accurate through peer review, provides a plausible explanation for why conservative Christian voters that champion sexual piety would ultimately embrace a candidate caught bragging about sexual assault: Modern American Christian nationalism, while attached to Christian identity, is more about country than faith.

This brand of religious nationalism appears to be unmoored from traditional Christian ideals and morality, and also inclined toward authoritarian figures. Ironically, Christian nationalism is focused on preserving a perceived Christian identity for America irrespective of the means by which such a project would be achieved."

I don't know if this has been here before, I found it through a link on Right Wing Watch, and felt it might be germane to the discussion.

Because words are more important than deeds and compassion for the lesser of us.
