What is Christian Supremacy?
Christian Supremacy is the connective tissue among different systems of violence and domination that use the language, capital, and power of Christianity to seek their ends.
Christian Supremacy is not new; the project of empire has snatched Christianity and put it into service for hundreds of years, especially in the United States and its business partners.
Calling out Christian Supremacy means recognizing that the struggles against white supremacy, capitalism, and (neo)colonization - to name a few - are intricately tied to how certain sectors and expressions of Christianity are driven by power over, not justice.
We believe consciousness of how this kind of religion works in the United States - its language, its cultural plumb lines, its relationship to social and financial power, its stated and unstated values - tells a more honest story of how this country came to be.
We also understand from 18 years of work that the skills one needs to sabotage Christian Supremacy include everything from healing rituals to scriptural acumen to insight into how sex, race, and religion are woven together historically. These skills are part of the work of activists, organizers, and healers across many justice movements - not just Soulforce, but of all of us working collaboratively for our collective liberation.
