Christian nationalists, who believe God has chosen the U.S. as the promised land, succumb to "fear, misery, confusion and self-reproach," says one writer who investigated the Call 2 Fall movement. "If you're of a certain Christian persuasion that believes the United States is God's providential actor on earth, crowned as history's savour, the call to fall isn't insensible. The United States hasn't fared well the last few years...During such times, asking why such troubles plague the United States is not only natural but necessary. Unfortunately, too many answer the question by looking to the simplicities offered by the religious right."
