You May Not Be Silent in the Face of Antisemitism

James Earnest writes

It is not permissible for confessing Christians in the United States today to sit back and say nothing in the face of intimations of the rise of a nationalist-racialist ideology, or of a species of political religion under which it might be said that to oppose the president is to oppose God.

It is not permissible for confessing Christians in the United States to be silent when Jews are receiving bomb threats, or when swastikas are spray-painted in public places, or when anti-Jewish rhetoric is increasing even in slight tor scattered ways, or to write such things off as the insignificant doings of a few fringe nuts, especially when our president has rudely refused to hear and respond appropriately to a question about these threats.

It is not permissible for a Christian in the United States today to participate in or condone any American-Christian movement that drapes the Stars and Stripes over the cross or pronounces a different or higher benediction upon our nation than upon any and every other nation of the world.
