Throw out the immigrants! Kill healthcare! To hell with the environment! Build walls! Take their oil!
Today, we Americans tout these lines and many like them. Can you imagine Christ supporting these policies? Yet, we still have the nerve to call ourselves a Christian nation. These are not Christian, but today they are American. We Americans have demanded change alright, but our change has gone in an anti Christian direction. Once upon a time, we Americans reveled in the motto: “in God we trust”. Today, our motto is becoming: “in money, military, and machismo we trust”. Does this constitute the greatness of America? Let’s own what we Americans are becoming: insular, bullish, and monetary. Let’s at least be honest, and claim for ourselves what we have become: an unchristian nation.
