1. Thanks for this thread, @jonrog1. For those interested in learning more and amplifying #Exvangelical work exposing the theocratic threat, check out #ExposeChristianSchools and #ExposeChristianHomeschooling. In addition to @PPact, an org that deserves support is @ResponsibleHS.
@jonrog1 @PPact @ResponsibleHS 2. For more on how homeschooling is used by the Christian Right to indoctrinate kids into extremism and what can be done about that, see my latest article:

@jonrog1 @PPact @ResponsibleHS 3. And if you're interested in the role played by evangelical colleges and universities in incubating future culture warriors, as well as resistance happening within those colleges, see this expose I did for @PRAEyesRight

Hey all,

There has been A LOT of conflict and tension and harm caused the last few days in our little #Exvie community. I want to address that with gentleness and respect, without re-litigating or reopening old wounds.

Kindness.
Respect.

Got it?
I have no interest in placing blame. We’re all really raw and hurting right now. Rachel Held Evans dying has left many of us grieving and on edge.

On top of that I have been in a horrific place with my mental health lately and was not able to jump into this convo.
I am not religious. But I am the descendant of enslaved people. People who were torn from their lives, parents, babies, homes on a regular basis.

Their trauma is literally encoded in every cell of my body.

And many clung to Christianity, the slaver’s religion, to survive.

In past decades, (white) Evangelical Christians have embraced the political right, both in& out of church. This has alienated congregants of all stripes, but the problems run deeper than you might think. My new piece follows in thread form. Read it here: economist.com/united-states/…
1. It's well-known that white evangelical Christians lean heavily to the right. Their embrace of Trump has caused this fact to go mainstream. But the interesting bits are (a) how we got here and (b) the consequences moving forward.
2. Evangelical leaders abandoned discussions of morality & Biblical honesty in the 80s and embraced the politics of individual rights — to life, to speech, etc. In the past decade, those leaders have combined with conservative legal networks, forming a new Christian legal Right.
