An Open Letter On Anti-Asian Racism & Christian Nationalism


II. LIST OF ANTI-ASIAN POLITICIANS AND ASSOCIATED CHURCHES


The list in the lefthand menu summarizes the anti-Chinese and anti-Asian rhetoric of just a few major Christian nationalist politicians in America. Since Donald Trump’s anti-Chinese bigotry is well-known, and since he is not a regular churchgoer, we do not focus on him (though we condemn his racism, unmitigated by his attempts at public relations). Insofar as all the following politicians identify as Christian, this list also describes the congregations or denominations to which these politicians belong. In the absence of forceful rebuke, the prejudice they exhibit not only catalyzes hate crimes, but also further tarnishes the reputation of the Christian faith.


Since publishing this letter, I've compiled more information on the politicians listed below, as well as on other politicians whose anti-Asian racism was not apparent to me until after publishing. You can find this new information by clicking on "Updates" below the text of the letter itself.
