(Hat-tip to Troutfishing.) Unfortunately, House Resolution 888, which promotes a Christian Nationalist historical revisionism about the United States, has gained new sponsors, surely to the delight of the religious right.

The Christian nationalist narrative about the United States is gaining traction even in the U.S. Army's ROTC program. Broadly speaking, the narrative, as summarized by an opponent of it, the conservative Baptist scholar David P. Gushee, who calls it a narrative of cultural despair, goes as follows:
[It] begins with the rise of secularism in the 1960s, the abandonment of prayer in schools, and the Roe decision, all leading to an apocalyptic decline of American culture that must be arrested soon, before it is too late and "God withdraws his blessing" from America. While very few conservative evangelicals come into the vicinity of Hitler in hatefulness, elements similar to that kind of conservative-reactionary-nationalist narrative can be found in some Christian right-rhetoric: anger at those who are causing American moral decline, fear about the future, hatred of the "secularists" now preeminent in American life, and the search for scapegoats. The solution on offer [is] a return to a strong Christian America through determined political action....
On Talk To Action there has been very worthwhile examination of Christian nationalist historical revisionism by researcher and Chris Rodda, author of Liars for Jesus: The Religious Right's Alternative Version of American History (Vol.1).
