And he's a self-described evangelical Christian.
Ooooooo. By isle's accounting, that makes him [Jimmy Carter] a Christian Nationalist."
That, of course is False. As a self described Christian, I'm sure you have read Exodus 20:1-7 Verse 16...Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbor
I directly challenge you to confirm that your false statement that since Jimmy Carter is a Christian Evangelical, by my accounting, that makes Jimmy Carter a Christian Nationalist.
In your attempt to deceive, you, Hate, are intentionally blurring the difference between Christian Evangelicals, Christian Nationalists, and White Christian Nationalists.
Are all Christian Evangelicals Christian Nationalists? ...Of course not.
Are all Evangelicals White Christian Nationalists? ...Of course not.
If you understand the above, you’ll understand why Jimmy Carter is neither a Christian Nationalist nor a White Christian Nationalist.
” I've always been fully committed to separation of church and state. I didn't permit worship services in the White House as had been done earlier. I was careful not ever to promote my own Christianity as superior in America to other religions, because I feel all religious believers should be treated carefully. At the same time, there's no way I could ever separate my Christian belief from my obligations as a naval officer, as a governor or as President, or from my work now. I can't say my commitments as President were free of my beliefs. We worship the Prince of Peace, and one of the key elements of my life as President in challenging times was to keep our country peaceful. I was able to deal with challenges without launching a missile or dropping a bomb. My commitment to peace was an aspect of my Christian faith. Also, basic human rights are obviously compatible with the teachings of Jesus Christ, and I made human rights a foundation of foreign policy.” ...Jimmy Carter
