Kristen nationalism är ett begrepp som använts i vissa sammanhang för att beskriva rörelser som förenar nationalism och kristendom.[1] Kristna nationalister fokuserar i första hand på intern politik, exempelvis krav på inrikes lagstiftning omkring kyrka och kristendom,[2][3][4] kristna symboler och statyer i det offentliga rummet, utställning av julkrubba under julen eller det kristna korset på långfredagen.[5][6]

Den ortodoxa kristna nationalistiska rörelsen Unionen av ortodoxa fanbärare genomför en procession i Moskva, Ryssland.

I USA får kristna nationalister support från den kristna högern.[7] Republikanen Marjorie Taylor Greene, som är Donald Trump-supporter och konspirationsvurmare, har beskrivit sig själv som en kristen nationalist.[8]

Exempel på en kristen nationalistisk organisation är Unionen av ortodoxa fanbärare, som enligt organisationen tillhör den rysk-ortodoxa kyrkan.

Läst 29 juli 2022. ”"We need to be the party of nationalism and I’m a Christian, and I say it proudly, we should be Christian nationalists," Greene said in an interview while attending the Turning Point USA Student Action Summit in Florida on Saturday. She is not alone in doing so. Greene's embrace of Christian nationalism follows closely after troubling remarks from Colorado Republican Rep. Lauren Boebert: "The church is supposed to direct the government, the government is not supposed to direct the church," she said at a church two days before her primary election (and victory) in late June. "I'm tired of this separation of church and state junk."”
