How Evangelicals Became White



By Kelly Brown Douglas April 2018

“How Evangelicals Became White” by The Rev. Dr. Kelly Brown Douglas, dean of Episcopal Divinity School in Sojourners (April 2018).  America’s Pilgrim and Puritan forebears “believed themselves descendants of an ancient Anglo-Saxon people, ‘free from the taint of intermarriages,’ who uniquely possessed high moral values and an ‘instinctive love for freedom.’”   A related biblical theme: “And the king will answer them, ‘Truly I tell you, just as you did it to one of the least of these who are members of my family, you did it to me’” (Matthew 25:40). https://bit.ly/2HhQXoA
