Unmasking Christian Nationalism in America
Tuesday, March 7, 2023 @ 7:30 p.m. ET
Join us for a deep dive into the underpinnings of white Christian Nationalism revealed by the new PRRI/Brookings survey. With responses from over 6,000 Americans, the results provide new measures to estimate the proportion of Americans who adhere to and reject Christian nationalist ideology, its rising influence in some circles of American politics and the major threat it poses to the to the health of our democracy.
We’ll also discuss how these results affect the work of organizations and individuals to maintain the separation of church and state and preserve inclusive religious freedom, as well as the issues nearest to them like abortion access, LGBTQ+ rights, and strong public schools.
The survey also examines how Christian Nationalist views intersect with white identity, anti-Black sentiment, patriarchy, antisemitism, anti-Muslim sentiments, anti-immigrant attitudes, authoritarianism, and support for violence. Additionally, the survey explores the influence Christian Nationalism has among our two political parties and major religious subgroups today.
