Christian leaders are continuing to speak out about the evil of white nationalist ideology amid ongoing revelations about the motivations of the gunman who murdered 20 people at an El Paso shopping mall Saturday.
“Any ‘Christ’ that can be invoked in support of white nationalism is a false Christ of the highest, most hellish order. An anti-Christ. A wholly-opposite christ. No such christ is the Christ Jesus of Scripture who taught His followers a love that sacrifices life & limb for others,” Moore said.
“Let it be known, let it be declared by genuine followers of Jesus, that the man who opened fire in El Paso may invoke a christ of some kind but it is NOT our Christ. His christ would be unrecognizable to us. Unrecognizable in Scripture. We claim no Christ of white nationalism.”
The Justice Department is reportedly considering bringing hate crime charges against the shooter. The attack is being treated as domestic terrorism.
Police say the shooter, 21-year-old Patrick Crusius, wrote a manifesto called “The Inconvenient Truth” in which he voiced support for the white supremacist in New Zealand who earlier this year killed several Muslims in a Christchurch mosque. The United States “is rotting from the inside out,” he wrote, expressing his disdain for Hispanic immigrants and for “race-mixing.” Hispanics will take control of his “beloved Texas” and turn the state into “an instrument of a political coup which will hasten the destruction of our country.”
Other points in the manifesto mention how the hyper-consumerist American lifestyle is destroying the environment and suggest that Americans are too stubborn to change their ways and that “the next logical step is to decrease the number of people in America using resources.”
