Do Both the Left and Right Have it Wrong on Christian Nationalism?
Whether it’s being called a fundamentalist because you agree with the fundamentals of the faith, a bigot because you challenge false narratives, or a homophobe because you denounce sexual sin, the goal of name-calling is always the same: to silence those with opposing views.
