‘Not Christianity’ begins trending on Twitter in response to Supreme Court’s perverse rulings

US Supreme Court nominee Amy Coney Barrett(C) and Vice President Mike Pence arrive at the US Capitol to meet with senators in Washington, DC, on September 29, 2020. - Country-wide, religious conservatives have roundly welcomed the choice of Barrett, who says her Catholic faith guides her approach to the law, to replace strident progressive Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the high court. Hoping it will aid his reelection, Trump wants the Senate to quickly approve 48-year-old Barrett before the November 3 vote, tilting the court towards the right for possibly decades.

The Supreme Court is stocked with what many politely refer to as “conservative Christians.” The need to distinguish “conservative Christians” from standard Christians is not simply because many of them are Catholic, but because they all seem to follow a highly politicized, extremely ardent, and narrow version of Christianity. In fact, whether or not they believe that Jesus of Nazareth was the Christ and believing in him leads to the salvation of one’s soul is hard to know, since most of their decision-making seems to revolve around harming the majority of God’s creatures.

The high court’s decision to roll back 50 years of reproductive rights using a clearly hypocritical and intellectually vacuous argument while also promoting gun violence, state violence, and abuse, and capping the session off by arguing that we are not stewards of the planet God gave us, has led to the hashtag #NotChristianity trending on Twitter. How does one square a decision to do away with clean air and the enforcement of better environmental conditions with Genesis 2:15? The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it.”

You do that with politics, and hiding behind a religion.
