White Christian nationalism is the dangerous belief that America is – and must remain – a Christian nation founded for its white Christian inhabitants, and that our laws and policies must reflect this premise. Denying the separation of church and state promised by our Constitution, white Christian nationalists oppose equality for people of color, women, LGBTQ people, religious minorities, and the nonreligious.
Americans United has been fighting white Christian nationalism under its various names and guises for decades, and we have won key battles in legislatures and the courts. We believe that only separation of church and state protects the free exercise of religion and a government of, by, and for the people. All people.
