On November 15 at Mar-a-Lago, Donald Trump officially announced that he is running for president in 2024. In a speech laced with fearmongering and lies, Trump made it clear that he intends to double down on the fascist tactics that led to the deadly January 6 Christian-nationalist attack on our Capitol.
We don't know much yet about how the 2024 election will play out, but one thing is certain: Another Trump presidency would be a disaster for our country.
The insurrectionist ex-president -- who infamously tear-gassed peaceful protesters to take a photo-op with a Bible outside an Episcopal church that didn't support him -- repeatedly weaponized religion in his last two campaigns, and 2024 will be no different. Multiple power-hungry pastors and Christian-nationalist leaders like Mike Huckabee, Mark Burns, and Eric Metaxas are already lining up to stand with him, falsely pretending they speak for all Christians.
The Gospel teaches love, equality, and dignity, all values that the MAGA movement clearly rejects. We can't let anyone believe that these Christian-nationalist politicians and far-right pastors speak for our faith -- especially not when it comes to Donald Trump.
At this pivotal moment, let's speak out as Christians and make it clear that Donald Trump does not share our values and will never have our votes.
