Ever since I first encountered the dissident right on 4chan, I’ve noticed a trend of what we can call BASED Christianity, or LARPing. (Live Action RolePlay, a term used these days to denote someone pretending to be something that they really aren’t for shallow purposes).
If you spend a lot of time on right wing social media, you’ve definitely noticed it. If I were to sum it up, it’s becoming a Christian for the wrong reasons – aesthetic, reactionary, or political reasons. I’ve seen it all.
