I have trouble seeing Christian nationalism as anything but nationalism with Christian frosting on top. Replace Christian with any other dominant religion/ideology and it swaps out cleanly.

This is why I don’t believe the “No True Scotsman” fallacy applies here:
It’s even in the phrasing: adj. noun: Christian Nationalism. It is Nationalism. It is not Christianity.
You can have Islamic Nationalism. You could have Buddhist Nationalism.
If we were talking about “Nationalized Christianity”, THEN No True Scotsman would apply.
But it’s Christian Nationalism
