Excerpt: Kingdom Coming

by Michelle
Excerpt from Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism by Michelle Goldberg:"Fascism isn't imminent in America. But its language and aesthetics are distressingly common among Christian nationalists. History professor Roger Griffin described the 'mobilizing vision' of fascist movements as 'the national community rising Phoenix-like after a period of encroaching decadence which all but destroyed it' (his italics). The Ten Commandments has become a potent symbol of this dreamed-for resurrection on the American right. ... housands of Americans nationwide have flocked to rallies at which military men don uniforms and pledge to seize the reins of power in America on behalf of Christianity."
