Sure, if you’re pro-abortion without restrictions, you might think that the United States is “under siege” by Christian fundamentalists, especially those darn Catholics on the Supreme Court. We’d thought the principled conservatives™ had covered this already, with David French revealing that the seeds of the next “insurrection” are being sown in white Christian churches. However, MSNBC has read a piece by Ja’han Jones, who writes for Joy Reid’s “The ReidOut” blog (probably so homophobic hackers don’t attack it again), and decided that it needed special attention on social media.

Jones writes:

If you were at the center of a religious crusade, do you think you’d be able to detect it?

I ask because it’s becoming increasingly clear that the United States is under siege by Christian fundamentalists and traditionalists.

The reported text exchanges between then-Trump White House chief of staff Mark Meadows and Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the right-wing activist and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, gave us a window into the conservative movement’s religious push to remake America in its conservative, Christian image.

All this exposure is serving its purpose, drawing the ugliness of Christian nationalism out of the shadows so it can be seen, publicly, for what it is: oppressive, far-right conservatism wrapped in scripture.

Thank goodness outlets like the Associated Press having the bravery to publish pieces like, “Christian nationalism on the rise in some GOP campaigns.”

We applaud Jones and MSNBC for making the bogeyman Christian “traditionalists” — we know how badly they wanted to use “Christofascists.”
