Christian right - Race and diversity
The conclusions of a review of 112 studies on Christian faith and ethnic prejudice were summarized by a study in 1980 as being that “white Protestants associated with groups possessing fundamentalist belief systems are generally more prejudiced than members of non-fundamentalist groups, with unchurched whites exhibiting least prejudice.” The original review found that its conclusions held “regardless of when the studies were conducted, from whom the data came, the region where the data were collected, or the type of prejudice studied.” More recently in 2003, eight studies have found a positive correlation between fundamentalism and prejudice, using different measures of fundamentalism.
A number of prominent members of the Christian right, including Jerry Falwell and Rousas John Rushdoony, have in the past supportedsegregation, with Falwell arguing in a 1958 sermon that integration will lead to the destruction of the white race.
In Thy Kingdom Come, Randall Balmer recounts comments that Paul M. Weyrich, who he describes as “one of the architects of the Religious Right in the late 1970s”, made at a conference, sponsored by a Religious Right organization, that they both attended in Washington in 1990:
In the course of one of the sessions, Weyrich tried to make a point to his Religious Right brethren (no women attended the conference, as I recall). Let’s remember, he said animatedly, that the Religious Right did not come together in response to the Roe decision. No, Weyrich insisted, what got us going as a political movement was the attempt on the part of the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) to rescind the tax-exempt status of Bob Jones University because of its racially discriminatory policies.—Paul M. Weyrich
Bob Jones University had policies that refused black students enrollment until 1971, and admitted only married blacks from 1971 to 1975. The university continued to forbid interracial dating until 2000. In an interview with The Politico, University of Virginia theologian Charles Marsh, author of Wayward Christian Soldiers and the son of a Southern Baptist minister, stated:
As someone who grew up in Mississippi and Alabama during the civil rights movement, … my reading is that the conservative Christian movement never was able to distinguish itself from the segregationist movement, and that is one of the reasons I find so much of the rhetoric familiar — and unsettling.
By the end of the civil rights movement, the way was set for this marriage of the Republican Party and conservative Christians. … At the Neshoba County Fair in Mississippi in 1980, (Ronald) Reagan’s statement “I am for states’ rights” was a remarkable moment in the conservative South. The Southern way of life was affirmed and then deftly grafted into national conservative politics.
I read your article on the GOP candidates visiting Bob Jones University with great interest, as I live in Greenville, South Carolina (current home of Bob Jones University.) This article provided a great deal of information to those ignorant of what Bob Jones stands for, but not enough. I have included some more information below:
In regards to Bob Jones University’s involvement in politics, it is interesting to note that several current members of the US Congress are BJU alumni (including Asa Hutchinson, one of the prosecutors in the impeachment of President Clinton) as well as the Speaker of the SC State House (David Wilkins) and the Speaker Pro Temp of the SC State House (Terry Haskins).
Further, Bob Jones University also dominates the politics of the local community. In 1996, the Greenville County Council passed a resolution condemning the “Homosexual Lifestyle.” Later that year, there was a Gay Pride March through downtown Greenville that involved over 1,500 people. Bob Jones University’s response? BJU students passed out brochures throughout the county inviting people to an Anti-Gay rally at the local stadium. This distribution of material was called, appropriately, “Operation Saturation.”
Recently, Bob Jones University has opposed the opening of the new downtown arena and was one of the leading groups in attacking arena leadership for scheduling “controversial” acts. Also, Bob Jones University was one of the leading forces behind the county’s recent vote to uphold the current laws prohibiting alcohol sales on Sunday.
Bob Jones University’s racism has not been only in admissions. In 1968, when Martin Luther King was assassinated, and President Lyndon Johnson ordered flags to be flown at half-staff, Bob Jones University refused, calling King “A traitor to the Gospel of Christ.” When this was announced at an evening chapel, many students applauded. (Bob Jones also awarded an honorary doctorate to Reverend Billy James Hargis, most widely known for his statement “God ordained Segregation.”)
King was not the only Christian leader they denounced. Bob Jones University withdrew from Youth for Christ, the National association of Evangelicals and the National Association of Religious Broadcasters, due to their perceived “Liberalism.” (This, it should be noted, refers not to Political Liberalism but Theological Liberalism, which is an entirely different thing from Political Liberalism.)
Bob Jones University also denounced Billy Graham for the same reasons. This was despite Graham’s and many of his associates’ graduation from Bob Jones University.
Bob Jones University is quite anti-Catholic. When Pope John Paul II visited Columbia, South Carolina, the late Bob Jones Jr. said that he would “sooner speak with the Devil himself” than speak with the Pope.
A frequent speaker at Bob Jones is Reverend Ian Paisley, who is also head of the Ulster Democratic Unionist Party in the UK. He was the most prominent opponent of the Good Friday Accord prior to its passage. He also had to be temporarily removed from the European Parliament chambers after he held up a sign “John Paul II = Antichrist” while the Pope was making a speech.
I hope this information can be of some use to you,

American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America
is a non-fiction book by American Pulitzer Prize journalist Chris Hedges, published in January 2007. Hedges is a former seminary student with a master’s degree in divinity from Harvard and was a long-time foreign correspondent for The New York Times.
Publishers Weekly wrote of the book: “As a Harvard Divinity School graduate, his investigation of the Christian Right agenda is even more alarming given its lucidity. Citing the psychology and sociology of fascism and cults, including the work of German historian Fritz Stern, Hedges draws striking parallels between 20th-century totalitarian movements and the highly organized, well-funded ‘dominionist movement,’ an influential theocratic sect within the country’s huge evangelical population. Rooted in a radical Calvinism, and wrapping its apocalyptic, vehemently militant, sexist and homophobic vision in patriotic and religious rhetoric, dominionism seeks absolute power in a Christian state. Hedges’s reportage profiles both former members and true believers, evoking the particular characteristics of this American variant of fascism. His argument against what he sees as a democratic society’s suicidal tolerance for intolerant movements has its own paradoxes. But this urgent book forcefully illuminates what many across the political spectrum will recognize as a serious and growing threat to the very concept and practice of an open society.”
Francine Prose of O, The Oprah Magazine wrote “Throughout, Hedges documents, and reflects on, what he feels is the bigotry, the homophobia, the fanaticism—and the deeply un-Christian ideology—that pose a clear and present danger to our precious and fragile republic.”
Rick Perlstein of the New York Times writes “Of course there are Christian fascists in America. How else to describe, say, the administrator of a faith-based drug treatment program who bound and beat a resident, then subjected her to 32 straight hours of recorded sermons?” Perlstein believes that this book, however, “is not a worthy attempt … [Hedges] writes on this subject as a neophyte, and pads out his dispatches with ungrounded theorizing, unconvincing speculation and examples that fall far short of bearing out his thesis … Hedges is worst when he makes the supposed imminence of mass violence the reason the rest of us should be fighting for the open society… The problem is that he can’t point to any actual existing violence among the people he’s reporting on”
Joe Bailey of the Oregon Daily Emerald wrote that Hedges “confuses political activism with totalitarian violence. … Like all Americans, conservative Christians have the right to pursue their political objectives through peaceful and democratic means. Which is precisely what they have done. Despite the peaceful and democratic nature of their activism, Hedges attacks conservative Christians with the nastiest of slurs, revealing a frightening ignorance. … The old guard of the Christian Right is stuck in the culture war mentality that originated in the 1960s. When liberals like Hedges adopt a similar culture war mentality, they only fortify the divide and lend ammunition to their adversaries.”
Rick Perlstein of the New York Times writes “Of course there are Christian fascists in America, but then has it all wrong. . I agree with Chris Hedges, and think Rick Perlstein is missing the point, the Munich Coup was as violent as a lot of Tea party stuff easily. You have the Posse Comitatus, Waco, Randy Weaver and the Abortion Clinic Bombings and murders, as well as flying Planes into the IRS in Texas not even to mention some of the out of control rhetoric of the Christian Right. It is similar to the rise of the NSDAP, differing only in that instead of the many persecuting the few, you have the Few attempting to persecute the many. “Fire and Brimstone” Preaching is too overheated to translate to Politics, but they don’t care,
If Fundamentalism is addressed as extremist in the proper derogatory Fundamentalist is dumb and ignorant, like it used to be, the Tea party would blow away in the wind. But they want to claim they are Evangelicals, when Fundamentalist is actually the right term and they will keep at it until they are called Fundamentalist and not given a polite way out. If Dobson and Barton want to run their cracker mouths in politics, they need to own Bob Jones Sr, period, the better option is to not bring it in the first place, restoring the separation of Church and State. These people are getting a free pass, you need to get in a Ku Klux Krackers face , because he will get in yours.
Look, it’s OK to be like Chris Christie, the Koch Brothers will support him if they aren’t allowed to push their Dixiecrat, John Birch Society bullshit past reasonable points. Christie and a Mainstream conservative won’t blow up the Government. But the Koch Brothers see an option, they think they can push it past common sense and “Drown the Government in the Bathtub”, and restore a kind of 1920’s Gold standard Libertarian ism by inflaming the Dominionist, Fundamentalist Evangelical/Charismatic extremists into a sort of 17th Century English Civil war level revivalism, and the Ku Klux Krackers love it, but it’s more like Feudalism in reality, big Capitalism ism low wages, and Big religion, the middle ages, and the Nietzsche, Ayn Rand elements believe that if they sow enough chaos, a Nietzsche superman will appear, like Hitler, someone very very conservative, probalby the Ted Cruz Texas crowd is too cracker, but Mike Pence isn’t, Mike Pence would be their Nietzsche superman. If they get enough power, their Religious Belief s will compel them to change things so that “Liberalism” (Secularism) can never return, that’s what “Take our Country back ” implies, get it back and keep it as a “Christian” Nation.
