Christian Nationalism is Coming for You (feat. Rob Boston)

  • 5 Comments
  • by: Colorado Pols

This week on the Get More Smarter Podcast, the Colorado Republican Party isn’t just morally bankrupt! No, the Grand Old Party may actually be financially bankrupt as well, and the national party may bankrupt the entire nation! Yay, fiscal responsibility! Yet another fiscally conservative Republican who lit 5 million dollars of his own money on fire in 2022 losing to Michael Bennet may be talked into lighting another pile of his own money on fire in losing to another Colorado Democrat in 2024. Ron DeSantis made a DeSasterous entrance into a now-very-crowded GOP presidential field and seemingly DeStroyed DeServers at Twitter. And we check in on the Denver mayor’s race with just one week to go.

But first, as Christian nationalism goes from a theoretical threat to a really real oh-crap-here-it-is threat, we check in with Rob Boston, senior adviser at Americans United for Separation of Church and State, to see what kinda Constitution these conservatives are reading. Make sure to also sign the pledge to protect the separation of church and state at au.org/pledge.

  1. A good read in today’s Washington Post:

    The revolt of the Christian home-schoolers

    Aaron and Christina had never attended school when they were children. Until a few days earlier, when Round Hill Elementary held a back-to-school open house, they had rarely set foot inside a school building. Both had been raised to believe that public schools were tools of a demonic social order, government “indoctrination camps” devoted to the propagation of lies and the subversion of Christian families.
     

     

    1. and also this from WaPo on the decline in the RR's role in the GOP as MAGA Populism takes hold:

      "This non-practicing bloc of the party has grown ever-more powerful — silently driving much of the GOP’s agenda and forcing it to adopt a more populist bent."

      Maybe that's the CO-GOP's real problem. Their own Party is leaving them behind, too.

       

  2. I'm about a 20 year member of Americans United. I recommend Rob Boston as a good reference on Christian Nationalism. He is also the editor of AU's monthly Church & State newsletter.
