Christian Nationalism and theocracy are the antithesis of democracy, not the foundation, as Putin and the US right would have us believe
Theocracies are like Iran, Afghanistan, Russia, India and more, show us why.
Today’s TAT is about Putin wielding an aberrant form of Eastern Orthodoxy, as a tool of Christian Nationalism. This helps him him maintain control in his oppression of the Russian people and support for his genocidal assault on Ukraine.
Make no mistake about it, this little Christian Nationalism controversy in Russia is part of Putin’s narrative to the Russian people and also keeps him at the top of the heap in the Global RWE movement sharing narratives, tactics, themes, messages and much more.
Putin’s desire to become a Tsar or Tsar-like, includes a heavenly mandate. He wields patriarch Kirill and the Orthodox Church as a weapon against the Russian people, not in support of them.
Like the Christian Nationalism threatening US and other global democracies, the sick ideology that Patriarch Kirill (a former KGB stooge/ operative) and Putin are pushing is not grounded in theology but in a bastardized version similar to the BS that Mike Flynn, here in the US is selling. In India, Modi, Putin’s buddy, wields Hindutva the same as Putin and Flynn wield Christianity.
When religion is controlling faction of the state, it becomes a theocracy. True Christianity does not equal Christian nationalism. Christian Nationalism is the enemy of American democracy and the values our nation is built on. Fortunately our founders were brilliant in establishing a separation between church and state.
Here in TX, under Governor Greg Abbott, they are choosing Christian Nationalism and my patriotic foundation is grumbling to the point of frustration. You can be a Christian Nationalist or you can be an American… your choice. For the MAGA folks who believe in this anti-American theology, I have it on good information that Putin is hiring.
A couple of thousand years ago. Jesus had the best answer regarding separation of church and state:
Putin, like Flynn, Modi, the MAGA movement etc., will end up in the trash heap of history, with the other discarded and immoral theocrats.
