Christianity is white supremacy: Christian activist Sandy Rios claims that when the left criticizes white supremacy, they attack Christianity.
Rios, the American Family Association’s Director of Governmental Affairs and a popular defender of extreme conservative Christian values, suggested that criticism of white supremacy is criticism of Christianity while speaking on her radio program, “Sandy Rios in the Morning” on American Family Radio.
On her program Rios said:
It’s not about your skin color and when they go further and compare President Trump to Nazis and their white racism, it’s really silly because, remember, the Nazis killed thousands, hundreds of thousands, of people, but guess what? They were white. The Nazis were Aryan supremacists. They had a certain superhuman race they wanted to develop and most white people did not qualify.
So when the left is talking about white supremacism, they’re talking about the roots of this country. They’re talking about Christianity. They’re talking about hard work, about capitalism and free-market values. They’re talking about everything that has made America what it is. That’s what they mean.
It may seem as though the hatred is focused on the president, but as I have said to you before, it is really focused on us—those of us that love this country, even if you don’t support Trump fully but you love the Constitution, you love the founders, you believe in Jesus—you are an object of their wrath.
Rios is a big Trump supporter, and a virulent anti-LGBT activist who often spouts Christian hate speech to promote her prejudice and bigotry. Previously Rios made headlines by fantasizing about Hillary Clinton being a lesbian, and leading an attack on Target’s trangender-inclusive bathroom policy by sending men into women’s bathrooms.
As for the connection between Christianity and white supremacy, historically, racism and white supremacy has been a central theme in American Christianity.
In fact, the Southern Baptist Convention, the largest Protestant body in the United States, was founded upon the notion that black slavery and white supremacy was integral to the Christian faith.
And the Ku Klux Klan has always been, and remains, an exclusively Christian organization dedicated to white supremacy.
Bottom line: Christian activist Sandy Rios equates white supremacy with Christianity, and claims that when the left criticizes white supremacy, they attack Christianity.
