Thanks to local faith leaders and organizers, the next stop of Michael Flynn and Roger Stone's dangerous Christian-nationalist speaking tour was canceled by its Rochester, NY, event venue -- but now it's been rescheduled at a nearby church.
Each ReAwaken America event is a toxic, two-day parade of right-wing preachers, MAGA celebrities, and QAnon conspiracy theorists spreading Donald Trump's Big Lie and unholy COVID-19 misinformation to audiences of thousands in Jesus's name.
Many of the tour's false-prophet speakers were even involved in the planning and execution of the January 6 insurrection, while others are pastors with close ties to the Proud Boys. From defending January 6 to telling the audience they're "Team Jesus" against "Team Satan," all of their rhetoric risks inciting another round of political violence under the Christian flag.
This is a clear example of Christian nationalism: the merging of religious and national identities to seize power for conservative Christians at any cost, overturning elections and building the very kind of oppressive theocracy that Jesus opposed.
ReAwaken America's Rochester cancelation grabbed the public's attention, which means the media will be watching the tour's next few stops very closely. Add your name now to show reporters, voters, and lawmakers alike that Christians oppose Christian nationalism!
