Liberal evangelical writer Rachel Held Evans wrote a series of posts on Twitter dismissing the fundamental premise of The Benedict Option.
Evans argued that "Christians are NOT a persecuted minority in the U.S. Christians make up 75% of population & 91% of congress" and "White Christians have enough influence to hand Donald Trump the presidency. They are NOT a marginalized group in our society."
"An entire industry of books, films, & orgs reinforce this narrative. I call it the White Christian Industrial Persecution Complex," tweeted Evans.
"So focused on themselves & their 'persecution,' white Christians = oblivious/indifferent to suffering of actual religious/ethnic minorities."
