A group of Roman Catholic and Protestant leaders called Faithful America has launched a petition garnering over 15 thousand signatures to oppose Donald Trump’s bid for the presidency. The group, which says they are “sick of sitting by quietly while Jesus’ message of good news is hijacked by the religious right to serve a hateful political agenda,” say they are banding together to “challenge Christian nationalism and white supremacy and to renew the church’s prophetic role in building a more free and just society.”

“We’re sticking up for courageous Christian voices acting for fairness and freedom in every denomination,” the website for the petition reads. “We’re fighting for social, economic, and racial justice, standing with the Black Lives Matter movement and upholding the Gospel’s values of love, equality, and dignity. Together, we’re helping make a difference for immigrants, refugees, the climate, the LGBTQ community, and more.”

The petition itself refers to Trump as an “insurrectionist” and calls on Christians to staunchly oppose his presidency.

The insurrectionist ex-president — who infamously tear-gassed peaceful protesters to take a photo-op with a Bible outside an Episcopal church that didn’t support him — repeatedly weaponized religion in his last two campaigns, and 2024 will be no different. Multiple power-hungry pastors and Christian-nationalist leaders like Mike Huckabee, Mark Burns, and Eric Metaxas are already lining up to stand with him, falsely pretending they speak for all Christians.

The petition argues that the gospel “teaches love, equality, and dignity, all values that the MAGA movement clearly rejects” and that they can’t “let anyone believe that these Christian-nationalist politicians and far-right pastors speak for our faith—especially not when it comes to Donald Trump.”

It goes without saying that Faithful America stands for practically everything that God hates, including abortion, the LGBTQ movement, feminism, socialism and communism, and various implementations of lawlessness codified into national policy.

At this time, it is unclear who is among the 15 thousand-plus signatures as the website does not reveal the names of the signatories. However, in 2020, an Evangelical group that included Southern Baptists launched a campaign to oppose Donald Trump called Evangelicals for Biden. Billy Graham’s granddaughter was among the signatories of that campaign. It would not surprise us if this campaign consisted of many of the same names.
