political theology, quote

Quote from Mark Lewis Taylor

The argument, again, is not that today’s virulent nationalism and aggressive imperial unilateralism are only due to a humiliation suffered on 9/11, but that groups already steeped in cultures of felt defeat and embattlement [i.e. the Christian Right] have harnessed the fear and patriotism of the post-9/11 moment for their ends.

From Religion, Politics, and the Christian Right: Post-9/11 Powers and American Empire by Mark Lewis Taylor, pg. 69.
