A lecturer at the 2016 White Privilege Conference (WPC) made the bold claim that almost every dysfunction in society, from racism and sexism to global warming and a weak economy, is united by the ideology of “Christian hegemony.”
Activist and author Paul Kivel may share his name with a great Christian saint and evangelist, but that’s about it. According to Kivel, just about everything bad in the world can be traced to the core ideas of Christianity, which “colonize our mind.”
“In the United States, there’s seven to ten thousand predominantly white, Christian men, who run the major institutions in our society: The corporations, the political parties, the think tanks, the foundations, universities, [and] cultural institutions,” said Kivel.

Dear Mr. Kivel - It is extremely difficult for me to read the Sermon on the Mount, which contains the core ideas of Christianity, and somehow conclude those ideas are bad.
It is rather the people who do not appear to understand the core ideas of Christianity (such as you) and the people who do not wish to follow the core ideas of Christianity (such as the seven to ten thousand predominantly white, Christian men you claim run our society) who are responsible for the dysfunctions of which you speak.
Clearly, Christianity is under attack, both in the US and around the world. As Jesus Himself said:
Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name's sake.
Matthew 24:9 KJV
You, Mr. Kivel, merely pave the way for the Antichrist and his war against the saints. And that too is G-d's will.
And the rest of you, please think about the all-pervasive system of spying which the US is seeking to impose on the entire world. Once it is perfected, it will be used to track down all remaining Christians and any others who refuse to take the mark of the beast. Isn't it ironic that many of you demanded and willingly paid for the very tools which will result in your deaths?
