The Southern Baptist Convention was held in Phoenix, Arizona last week (13th-14th June.)
As on previous occasions in recent years, the Southern Baptist Convention displayed an alarming slouch into “social justice warrior” territory, so loved of the liberal “darling” of recent Conventions Dr. Russell Moore (a close friend and associate of Dr. Al Mohler, by the way.)
They also adopted a new gender-inclusive Bible called the Christian Standard Bible. This is to please the Feminists, no doubt.
Last year Dr. Moore was tripping over himself to show his tolerance of dangerous Islam by urging his Baptist brethren to embrace “soul-freedom” for all, which means supporting Muslims’ “right” to build yet more mosques in the USA (see our previous post on this matter “Russell Moore, Al Mohler et al – liberals destroying the SBC.”)
Russell Moore is also taken up with racial reconciliation and appears to suffer from “white guilt” i.e he seems to feel the need to apologise for being white and for “white privilege.”
Following an incident in which a black man, Eric Garner, died during a police choke hold in New York City, Dr.Moore said,
“It’s high time we start listening to our African American brothers and sisters in this country when they tell us they are experiencing a problem.” (end of quote)
Our response to the death of Eric Garner is to say that the police do appear to have a case to answer, and, if, after investigation, police officers deliberately killed this man, they should be charged with murder.
However, Dr.Russell Moore appears to have nothing to say about black against black violence and black against white violence.
In the USA (and South Africa and England) many blacks are killed by other blacks and many whites are killed by blacks.
The Knoxville horror in Tennessee describes the horrific murders of a young white couple at the hands of five savage blacks (one of them a woman.)
Channon Christian and her boyfriend Christopher Newsom were carjacked, tortured and murdered in January 2007. (see documentary below)
Christopher’s mother said,
“It may have started out as a carjacking, but what it developed into was blacks hating whites. To do the things they did, they would have to hate them to do that.” (end of quote)
Blacks hating whites! Now that is racism!
Has Dr.Moore ever condemned black against black violence and black against white violence? If not, why not?
Dr. Moore appears to suffer from his own novel form of racism. He is an anti-white white man!
At last week’s Southern Baptist Convention, he was one of the (many) attendees who supported a proposal (brought by a black Pastor) that the Convention condemn the Alt-Right.
The Convention did vote to condemn the Alt-Right, albeit with slightly different wording than the original proposal brought forward by the black Pastor.
In condemning the Alt-Right movement, which seems to be a pro-Trump movement at its core but also includes those who believe that white identity and culture should be recognised and protected just as other race groups are recognised and protected, and are not white supremacists in any way, were portrayed as such by Moore and his ilk at the Convention, with Moore going as far as to say they are anti-Christian and using the numbers 666 to describe them.
We are not Alt-Right (although we are certainly right wing as opposed to left wing) and we are not pro-Trump. In fact, if we lived in America, we would not have voted for Trump or Clinton as they are both amoral, godless individuals.
In our views on Trump and Clinton, we find ourselves in agreement with Russell Moore as he was anti-Trump and anti-Clinton.
However this is our only point of agreement with Russell Moore.
We share the Alt-Right’s concerns about the anti-white sentiments that abound today in the views of liberals like Russell Moore, and now also, from within the Southern Baptist Convention.
Yet more compromise can be expected from the Southern Baptists unless they remove the liberals from within their ranks and cease seeking acceptance and applause from a wicked world.
