After NYT Op-Ed, Russell Moore’s Own Liberal Elitist Friends Are Even Turning on Him Now

Russell Moore can now be rightly described as the most far-left progressive leader the Southern Baptist Convention has seen in decades. Moore, who leads the Soros-funded Evangelical Immigration Table, recently published an op-ed in arguably the most liberal newspaper in the United States — possibly the world — the New York Times, arguing, like a liberal, that amid the coronavirus outbreak, conservatives are more concerned about the stock market than human lives.

Echoing the sentiments of his counterparts like Rachel Maddow and MSNBC talking heads, Moore writes in an article at New York Times, titled God Doesn’t Want Us to Sacrifice the Old,

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work. Much of our work, particularly as it revolves around a biblical worldview on social and cultural issues, isn’t even allowed to be shared on social media anymore.

We already are hearing talk about weighing the value of human life against the health of the nation’s economy and the strength of the stock market. It’s true that a depression would cause untold suffering for people around the world, hitting the poor the hardest. Still, each human life is more significant than a trillion-dollar gross national product. Stocks and bonds are important, yes, but human beings are created in the image of God.

Of course, this is completely idiotic and nobody, not a single person, has suggested that we sacrifice the old. Russell Moore’s idiotic argument has even draw the scrutiny of his liberal-leaning colleagues who usually spend every waking moment defending him.

Matthew Lee Anderson, who is closely aligned with the Revoice “gay Christian” movement and The Gospel Coalition, as well as the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission — which Russell Moore leads — criticized Moore on Twitter for his lack of intelligence in his article. Anderson writes,

I mean, I love @drmoore. Really, I do. But the suffering the economically disadvantaged are going to face from this shouldn’t be merely a qualifier before reducing the worry to the GDP or “stocks and bonds.”

He then went on to say,

Did anyone ever say we should deliberately sacrifice the elderly? Is that really the most generous way to describe the concern?

The opposition between caring for the vulnerable and the economy makes for a great op-ed…but maybe denouncing people as submitting to Satan or as failing to honor the image of God isn’t especially helpful for navigating a pandemic?

And then rightly made the case for the vast amount of suffering and death the world is going to face if we don’t do something to save the economy.

Moore’s ridiculous argument that those who believe we should try to mitigate the next Great Depression are just greedy stock market traders and big business owners should have everyone’s head turning. Moore is currently under investigation by the Southern Baptist Convention’s Executive Committee and many were hoping that this could be the end of Moore’s liberalizing of the denomination — but the coronavirus pandemic has instead caused Moore and other SBC leaders to unanimously vote to keep themselves in power for another year.
