The Flee from Christian Fundamentalism blog is taking this opportunity to do what every American public and private organization, corporation, politician, and individual should do. This blog hereby officially and publicly denounces all American Alt-Right Hate Groups and those Americans who side with them, support them, and participate in their hate-based activities. This includes all the hate groups on the Southern Poverty Law Center’s (SPLC) list of hate groups, including those organizations on the SPLC list that claim to be Christian.
This blog has not in the past, does not now, and never will support these hate groups, their leaders, their followers, or any of their hateful activities. In addition, this blog is determined to speak out against and resist these groups through peaceful and nonviolent means, bearing in mind that the pen really is mightier than the sword in a free country.
Our basis for denouncing and resisting these hate groups, their leaders, and their followers is a simple one in The Holy Bible. In our honest opinion, these hate groups, their hateful philosophies, their hateful speech, and their hateful activities grossly violate the words of Jesus, which are as follows:
Master, which is the great commandment in the law? Jesus said unto him, “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. This is the first and great commandment. And the second is like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.” (Matthew 22:36-40)
In addition, this blog hereby invokes its First Amendment right of free speech to denounce President Donald J. Trump and those political members of his White House staff who give aid and comfort to the so-called Alt-Right by acts of commission and/or omission. This blog similarly denounces all the Republican Party, Democratic Party, and Independent members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate who stand by stone cold and silent with regard to this President and these members of his staff. Shame on all of you Congressmen, Congresswomen, and U.S. Senators!!! You are a disgrace to the United States of America and to your Oath of Office.
The same goes for all you Christian fundamentalists, conservative evangelicals, and members of the Religious Right who sympathize with such hate groups, believe in the same evil things they do, and refuse to speak out publicly against them. By doing so, you have shown before the eyes of God and man that your true color is the black of spiritual darkness.
