religion and spirituality can be a way to find connection, community, meaning, and peace in the universe. sadly, not all theists uphold the tenets of their faith. even more upsetting is the growing population of Christian nationalists in the US. the far-right has latched onto evangelicals, preying on their values to move more people to the political far-right. if America truly has freedom of religion, why is this extremism being forced onto the population? has benevolence forsaken us?
