Two starkly different visions

From “The Hidden Roots of White Supremacy: and the Path to a Shared American Future” by Robert P. Jones

Particularly in the wake of Trump’s “Make America Great Again” (MAGA) takeover of the Republican Party, our two political parties are increasingly animated by two starkly different visions of the nation’s past and future. Is America a divinely ordained promised land for European Christians, or is America a pluralistic democracy where all stand on equal footing before the law? Most Americans embrace the latter. But a desperate, defensive, mostly white Christian minority cling to the former.
