Report from the Capital is our flagship magazine to help you stay current on religious liberty news.
The dangerous political ideology of Christian nationalism continues to permeate our society, and it gained new notice after it was on display during the attack at the U.S. Capitol on January 6, 2021. This magazine looks at a new report on Christian nationalism and the insurrection, featuring researchers, scholars and advocates, and BJC Executive Director Amanda Tyler shares how how groups are working together to dismantle Christian nationalism. This magazine also explores the work to save sacred land in the Southwest known as Chí’chil Biłdagoteel (“Oak Flat” in English), the Progressive National Baptist Convention’s work to protect voting rights, and the church-state record of our country’s next Supreme Court justice: Ketanji Brown Jackson.
