Just days ago the Southern Baptists pushed through a resolution condemning “alt-right racism,” but it seems that they have not done enough to atone for their racist sins.
Lawrence Ware, a black Southern Baptist as well as the “co-director of the Center for Africana Studies at Oklahoma State University and the diversity coordinator for its philosophy department,” decided that the resolution was not embraced enthusiastically enough.
Writing in the New York Times, Ware states that:
I’ve had enough. Today I am officially renouncing my ordination in the Southern Baptist Convention, the country’s largest Protestant body, with about 15 million members, and the world’s largest Baptist denomination.
My reasoning is simple: As a black scholar of race and a minister who is committed to social justice, I can no longer be part of an organization that is complicit in the disturbing rise of the so-called alt-right, whose members support the abhorrent policies of Donald Trump and whose troubling racial history and current actions reveal a deep commitment to white supremacy…
What’s more, while they hesitated to adopt a resolution that condemned white supremacy, they did not hesitate to throw out activists who tried to raise awareness about the ways in which the convention fails its L.G.B.T.Q. members…
[N]ot enough has been done to address the institutional nature of white supremacy in the convention. Many churches are still hostile to the Black Lives Matter movement, and even more were silent during the rise of Mr. Trump and the so-called alt-right.
Notice that Ware conflates support for the Alt-Right, support for Donald Trump, opposition to sodomy and opposition to Black Lives Matter terrorists. This should be a lesson to Southern Baptists and all other Christians who think that they can accept just part of the Cultural Marxist package. Once a denomination has caved and apologized for “racism,” the degenerates will immediately demand that the denomination accept sodomites. It is no longer enough to denounce obvious “racism” like the Klan. If you really want to atone for racism, you have to stop voting Republican and embrace “social justice.”
“Anti-racism” is the wedge that Marxists have used to get a foothold in conservative Christianity. We must chase out every last vestige of false, worldly teaching from the Church if we hope to see a revival.
