The National Park Service doesn’t have a site marking lynchings of African Americans

With Brazil’s president Jair Bolsonaro up for reelection,CT asked evangelical leaders about the church’s witness in campaign season, especially as some congregations voto de rebanho (“vote as a herd”)—a term that plays on the Portuguese meaning of pastor as “shepherd.”

The National Park Service, which oversees historical markers on public lands, doesn’t have a site marking mass killings or lynchings of African Americans. Black church leaders have now formally requested one in Springfield, Illinois.

A clip of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary president Albert Mohler stating it’s “unfaithful” for Christians to not vote or vote for the wrong candidate has revived discussions on biblical approaches to political engagement.
