Shout-out to @ThatMandyNicole who is quoted in this piece. Like her, “I grew up with white Christian nationalism too. With ritual recitations of the pledges to the American flag, the Christian flag, and the Bible...”

Like her, this made it difficult for me to express patriotism.
“At least so long as we remain unable to achieve a consensus about how to face up to the crimes of our government and society, past and present, and to find a way to pursue restorative justice through our governing institutions, American pieties will ring hollow.”
“‘Real’ Christianity exists in decent and toxic forms. Similarly, there are decent and toxic ways of being American. Communally mediated values, texts, and traditions provide the material out of which to construct authoritarian or liberationist Christian and American identities.”
