Defining Christian Nationalism

This is a good definition of (white) Christian Nationalism from Andrew Whitehead's excellent podcast American Idols. [Episode 1]

“The Christianity of Christian Nationalism is of a particular type... it brings with it a cartload of cultural baggage. So this expression of Christianity privileges conservative political ideology as vitally intertwined with what it means to be a faithful Christian... it also privileges free-market capitalism and the production and protection of wealth as an unquestioned good.

It privileges being a natural-born citizen in the same way. Christian Nationalism privileges the right of men to lead and the use of power and the threat of violence to subdue dissent and to conquer enemies. Chief among the carry-on items of the cultural baggage of Christian Nationalism is how it centres and privileges the white experience.”
