Christian Nationalism or Christian Patriotism? William Federer Explains

• https://thenewamerican.com, by Alex Newman

The media-driven demonization campaign against "Christian nationalism" is seeking to undermine Christianity and patriotism while working to exclude Christians from civic life, warned historian William Federer in this episode of Conversations That Matter with The New American magazine's Alex Newman. Federer, a renowned expert in history and author of many books, also offers key information on U.S. history and the role of the Bible and faith in the formation and development of the United States.

I am horrified that you have no clue as to where the current term and movement "Christian Nationalism" actually comes from. It is the title of a book published by and promoted on Gab.com. This is one of the largest alternative, free-speech platforms. You are not on Gab, or were not when the book came out. Gab is owned by a staunch Christian who says the New AND Old testaments belong only to Christians, not Jews, and denies the validity of "Judeo-Christian values." (Those values come from the Torah and are heavily promoted by Jews. They were reiterated by Christ.) The primary excitement came from the idea that this nation was founded on Christianity and Christians should speak up publically. Thankfully, that is very much a feature of the current Patriot movements. But the anti-semitism (they say they are not anti-semitic) and arrogance of Gab's version of Christian patriotism alienated many. I like your term "Christian Patriotism."
