NC GOP Lt. Gov. Says “Diversity and Multiculturalism” Will Destroy the Country

NC GOP Lt. Gov. Says “Diversity and Multiculturalism” Will Destroy the Country

During a sermon over the weekend, North Carolina Lt. Gov. Dan Forest, a Republican, told a conservative Christian audience about the awfulness of… diversity.

But don’t worry. We’re a Christian nation, he argued, so we’ll overcome it.

[N]o other nation, my friends, has ever survived the diversity and multiculturalism that America faces today, because of a lack of assimilation, because of this division, and because of this identity politics,” Forest claimed.

But no other nation has ever been founded on the principles of Jesus Christ, that begin the redemption and reconciliation through the atoning blood of our savior,” he added.

It’s hardly the first time he’s made comments promoting white evangelical values or advocating for Christian Nationalism. In the past, he argued against bathroom bills by saying that letting trans people use the proper bathrooms would discriminate against cisgender people. Somehow. He also wrote a letter to the Architect of the Capitol to ask for a statue of Rev. Billy Graham in the building.

Forest plans to run for governor in 2020. These sorts of comments ought to be disturbing to everyone who may be on the fence about which party to support.

  1. The Lt. Governor is giving sermons? Matthew (6: 24) disagrees with this approach.
    “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”

    • Hello MDavis. This is part of the new Christian theocracy the Christian dominion want. I have to give them credit. They pushed their congregations to put their people in power at the state level and now the the federal level. If they get their way we’ll all be forced to live by their doctrines and rules. Goodbye democracy. Hugs
