I hate debating political topics or commenting on politics in a forum where a flame war could erupt (so don’t expect a lively debate in the comments section here). However, as a relatively conservative Christian who happens to be white, I am saddened and appalled at the way in which many of my fellow Christian are responding to this:
I don’t know anyone personally who is openly in favor of white nationalism, but I am seeing a shocking tendency of white, conservative Christians to brush it off as “no big deal.” Because men like these torch-wielding bigots would claim to speak/act on our behalf, those of us who are white Christians need to pause from the “sure, white supremacists are bad, but what I really want to rant about is…[antifa, confederate monuments, the media, BLM, Obama, the Left, Trump, etc.]” and make it very clear that by no stretch of the imagination is the white nationalist cause justifiable, defensible, or “no big deal” for a follower of Jesus Christ (who walked the earth as a Middle-Eastern man).
This article by Kevin DeYoung (written after the 2015 church shooting in Charleston) articulately explains why racism is a serious sin against God and humans who are made in His image, not just a stepping stone to rant against perceived hypocrisy.
