Marjorie Taylor Greene's Advocacy of Christian Nationalism within the GOP Compared to the Taliban by Adam Kinzinger
With the favor of the ideology growing among the GOP, Adam Kinzinger has said “There is no difference between this and the Taliban. We must oppose the Christian Taliban. I say this as a Christian…”
When speaking of the recent calls from Marjorie Taylor Green’s advocating the Republican party becomes a Christian Nationalist party, Adam Kinzinger compared the remarks and wishes to that of the “American Taliban.” He said, “I oppose the American Taliban” as he then went on to say the calling of the GOP to turn into a “party of Christian Nationalism” to the Taliban’s claims of being “The party of Islamic nationalism.”
The comments have come due to the rising concerns of Christian nationalism within the Republican party. Multiple GOP politicians have made remarks that suggest they back the ideology. Marjorie Taylor Greene specifically called for the party to “embrace the ideology of Christian nationalism.” Donald Trump has even spoken on it slightly as well, but never enough to link him to subscribe to the ideology.
The whole idea is defined as "the belief that the American nation is defined by Christianity, and that the government should take active steps to keep it that way.” Lauren Boebert made controversial comments concerning the separation of church and state last month as she said the church should be in charge of “directing the government.”
To conclude, Adam Kinzinger said “There is no difference between this and the Taliban. We must oppose the Christian Taliban. I say this as a Christian…”
