The Growing Threat of Christian Nationalism
Hosted By: Moment Magazine
The United States was founded on the notion of freedom of religion, and yet today, a growing number of people believe the country should be rooted in Christian values. There is real concern that Christian nationalism is becoming a threat to our democracy. Investigative reporter Katherine Stewart, author of The Power Worshippers: Inside the Dangerous Rise of Religious Nationalism and Eric K. Ward, executive vice president at Race Forward, will discuss why we should be paying attention to the rise of Christian nationalism. In addition, they will talk about how Christian nationalism overlaps with white nationalism and intersects with antisemitism, racism and other forms of hate and extremism. In conversation with Moment Literary Contributor Robert Siegel, former senior host of NPR’s All Things Considered.
This conversation is part of a program series sponsored by Moment Magazine and THE WNET Group’s reporting initiative Exploring Hate: Antisemitism, Racism and Extremism and is supported by the Joyce and Irving Goldman Family Foundation.
