The link about white supremacy reminded me that Christianity is dropping most rapidly among lower income white people. The article traces the disdain among a branch of white supremacists for Christianity.
This anti Christian thinking is pre WWII. It considers Christianity to be a European religion, one that reflects the culture of Europe at the time it became popular. According to white supremacy, this hurt the white race, which needs to dominate the world, by replacing white dominance with a deity.
This thread of reasoning is an unfortunate branch of humanism. Humanism is a branch of atheism. White supremacists carry humanism outside of sphere of the American Humanist Society. In white supremacy humanism the superior race, white, has within it superior individuals who should run society without democracy.
Anti Christian white supremacy believes society is always pushing forward to reach a higher plateau. In times past it was higher buildings, climbing higher mountains and finding a higher intellectual plain. This can only be accomplished, the thinking goes, if the best white individuals are left alone to lead humanity. Being popular plays no part in great ends. Christianity puts obstacles in place to prevent this.
Freethinking, whose advocates declare they make decisions independent of religious or government authorities, usually but not always atheist, hopefully blocks white supremacy humanism from its goals. Leaders, whether religious or secular, have led societies to harmful ends often in history.
White supremacy is part of the West’s history. It is at work among us today.
