At the same time, on a website that originates about 75 miles east of Cincinnati in Bainbridge, Ohio, an avowed neo-Nazi proclaims a different sermon. Only a select group of white people are chosen by God, he says. Everyone else is unworthy.
"Not the Jewish nation. Not blacks. Not mongrels. Not half-breeds, yellows, Chinese, Koreans, homosexuals or bisexuals," says the white supremacist preacher, Paul R. Mullet.
The messages could not be more different, yet both are based on an interpretation of the same Christian faith. While Mullet is a fringe actor, his sermons are a reminder of Christianity's complicated history with race in America – one stained by the justification and endorsement of slavery.
