has printed a lengthy and worthwhile excerpt from the new book Kingdom Coming: The Rise of Christian Nationalism.

The excerpt is too long and detailed to be adequately summarized; suffice it to say for now that individuals and ideas within Christian nationalism (or national Christianism, take your pick) seem to mirror the National Socialists’ blend of sanctimonious and distorted Bible readings; patriotism; a desire to use government power, money, and surveillance to impose their own self-serving religious “dominion” upon God and society; and contempt for the freedom of competing faiths and cultural groups.

Addendum: At Talk To Action, author Michelle Goldberg makes some distinctions between fundamentalism and “Christian nationalism.”
