This isn’t anything new (but it needs to be said again, and now)

This is short, but I feel it is necessary, especially after the events today in Washington, D.C. I’m copying most of this from a recent social media post I made. Christian Nationalism, in any nation, is anti-Christ. Full stop. I know this is a site where we can share differences…
