How the true history of the Pledge of Allegiance undermines white Christian nationalism
People might be surprised that the book of Revelation does identify the rise of the United States. If they read Revelation 13:11, they might be hesitant to put their right hand over their heart in a pledge to it! Thanks for the info on the pledge Jemar!
Thank you! I learned so much new information about the pledge in this post. The study of history does empower us.
This historical research and information is so helpful and validating with my unease growing up in communities of white Christian nation-ism/nationalism (WCN.) I wonder how WCNs explain the pluralistic images on U.S. currency, etc.. Perhaps I'll learn of the history and views in the books Dr. Jemar Tisby has cited. (I'm currently reading, Dr. Gerardo Martí's, American Blindspot: Race, Class, Religion, and the Trump Presidency (which helps me understand my upbringing & Trump's popularity still. It was written prior to Jan 6, 2021.) ("Make America a White and Christian Nation Again," p. 240) Looking forward to Dr. Jemar Tisby's next book!!
This was fascinating, thank you!
