Friends and Supporters of The Christian Left
80% of white Evangelicals vote Republican in the US and they supported Donald Trump in the 2020 election.
Really? How can that be? It's true.
Now he's going to be the nominee in 2024.
It's obvious organized Christianity in the US has gone off the rails. Republican ideology is as far away from the teachings of Jesus as you can get. It's a cruel, selfish ideology unless you're rich and enjoy seeing 'the least of these' thrown under the bus.
Our modern economic system has become the 'law of the jungle.' Only the richest, strongest and smartest receive help. Those who really need help are viewed as "lazy freeloaders who deserve what they get, which is nothing." This is conservative ideology in a nutshell whether its followers realize it or not, and it's the opposite of everything Jesus ever said.
The Christian Left is an online ministry and community for Christian progressives and their allies. It’s a place to gather any time of day, 7 days a week, no matter where you live. Every day we discuss daily events, enjoy fellowship, and take action on behalf of 'the least of these.' We put the words and actions of Jesus front and center in everything we do.
There's never been a more important time to join us with your financial support. The "Christian" Right spends billions on conservative policy messaging every year, and they tie it to the Christian faith. They tie it to Jesus. That’s blasphemy in our opinion.
A counter-narrative is desperately needed. We are experienced and well equipped to present that counter-narrative. We've already been doing so since 2009.
The founding members of The Christian Left take part in political action. They have traveled all over the country to participate in gatherings and events where political action is taking place on behalf of the oppressed. How many Christian organizations do you know of these days advocating for progressive policy? There aren't many and we were one of the first in the era of social media.
Tens of thousands of people have told us over the years that TCL is a literal lifeline for them. We were one of the first national Christian ministries to fully support marriage equality. Many LGBTQIA+ folks tell us they felt hopeless and rejected by Christians until they found TCL. That's just the beginning of our story. One of the things we hear almost every day is some variation of: "Finally! A place for me!"
The Christian Left a haven. Members won’t be harassed by conservative “Christians,” Republicans, or naysayers of any kind. We don't allow it.
Anyone can be a member. All we ask is that people join us if they want to be a part of what we have to offer, not to debate with us, insult us, or try to convince us of their point of view. We are not a debate society.
