WATCH: Marjorie Taylor Greene’s Promises For Christian Nationalism Are Truly Chilling

It would be nice to expect that elected officials in the United States would have respect and understanding for the Establishment Clause of the First Amendment, which makes it clear that the country was founded on there being no state enforcement of religion. Unfortunately, instead, we have Marjorie Taylor Greene.

Greene is angry that there’s a battle against Christian nationalism, a movement that seeks to define the entire nation by Christian principles (or, more specifically, the principles that certain Christian sects consider to be defining). In fact, she suggests that the country should be thrilled with the efforts to retroactively turn the U.S. into a Christian nation. Her reasons vacillate from ridiculous to outright bigoted.

Greene thinks that enforcing Christianity on America will put an end to mass shootings and reduce crime — something that hasn’t been supported by any evidence, and apparently a spin-off of the claim that school shootings happen because of the removal of forced prayed. That’s a common trope pulled out to avoid discussing gun control or other legislative measures.

However, the chilling part comes in the rest of her reasoning — she feels it will be beneficial to kids, because the movement “brings them up in traditional families” and nurtures them to “grow up to be successful moms and dads.”

That’s a lot of LGBTQ erasure. “Traditional families” is, of course, code for heterosexual couples, and the whole thing sounds like an endorsement of either eliminating LGBTQ couples, or at minimum, cutting them out of child-rearing. It also buys into the idea that the primary goal for children should be to grow up, enter their own hetero relationships, and reproduce — regardless of whether it’s what they want for themselves.
