Joel Mathis takes a deeper dive into who and what Christian Nationalists are.
In answer to the headline question: Not too much. There were quite a few Christians there who may or may not self-identify as such, but their beliefs may say otherwise.
However, some of the underlying numbers as who identifies as Christian Nationalist are interesting.
“The scholars at Political Behavior found that “support for the Capitol attacks is a minority position among any slice of the American religious landscape.” But they also noted that 17.7 percent “of white weekly churchgoers fall into the joint top quartile of justification of violence, Christian nationalist beliefs, perceived victimhood, white identity, and support for QAnon.” That percentage — while relatively small — “would represent millions of individuals.” “
17.7% may not seem to be a lot. But it also seems those numbers are growing. Those who say this is a Christian country are out of touch with actual history and facts. Everyone here is aware that Thomas Jefferson was known to be a Deist. And not ALL of the Founders were Christians. Those who espouse those beliefs are mistaken. But good luck telling them otherwise.
