Pat Buchanan makes a lot of sense, and on many points I am in agreement with him. But on one point I disagree with him profoundly. Christianity is not the sole property of white people of European descent; the Kingdom of God is open to people of all nations. Like Buchanan, I am concerned that Christianity in this country is waning as Christians become crowded out by non-Christians, but if that is the case then it is up to us Christians to convert the non-Christians, and that can only be done with love, not with racism, bigotry, and xenophobia. I am a patriotic American, but I am a Christian first and an American second, and I cannot accept Buchanan’s view that Christianity is tied to ethnicity. America will eventually perish anyway along with the rest of the world, but the Kingdom of God is forever. That is the nation that has my first allegiance.
