USA - Conservative Christians, Muslims Unite to Fight Wokeism

J. Froese

[Tommy Robinson] has observed that “Islam has become an attraction for so many, because people are looking for something strong in principle that can stand its ground.” Lamenting the state of the West, he has noted that there are areas of common ground between his extreme far-right views and certain forms of conservative Islam.

Earlier this spring, outside the Montgomery County Public Schools headquarters in Rockville, Maryland, a disparate assembly of organizations gathered to protest. Moms of Liberty, a self-proclaimed American conservative Christian organization, rubbed shoulders with hijab-wearing Muslim mothers, collectively chanting “protect our children!”

Coming from communities previously suspicious of each other’s identities, the protesters were united on one issue: that children need protection from LGBTQ material in their education. 

This is nothing new for [Mike] Cernovich, who has tweeted to his million-plus followers that: “A moderated form of Islam is probably the West’s only hope against wokeism.” The pair encouraged people in the West to consider learning “many great things from Islam,” referring to its focus on traditional family values. They made a distinction between the majority of Muslims and the radical elements who commit terrorism. Cernovich added that the “majority of terrorism victims are in fact Muslims, and we were, as Christians, burning heretics just a few hundred years ago.” A decade ago, this attitude would have been unthinkable in discussions of Islam in right-wing circles., 20 June 2023


Whenever political alliances are made, strange bedfellows are to be expected. For years now, we’ve seen Catholics and Evangelicals arm-in-arm fighting against abortion (and even contraception in the case of Hobby Lobby and Little Sisters of the Poor), but it is surprising to see this conservative ecumenism extend its reach to now include Muslims.

Let us remember the admonition in Mark 16:15: “And he said unto them, Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature.” Our neighbors—whether nominally Christian, Muslim, or other—are all in need of the saving grace of our Lord; let this sink into our hearts before we link arms with the lost to fight political and cultural wars. Second Corinthians 6:14 is clear in this regard: “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?” -By J.
