Never-Trump Evangelicals Reaping What They Sow as the Equality Act Makes Headway

Reformation Charlotte has consistently argued that the Democrat party of Satan’s one and only purpose is to destroy morality rooted in a biblical worldview. The Democrat party’s platform reads like the antithesis to the Ten Commandments and there is nothing the party stands for that a Christian in good conscience could support. Nothing.

Yet, the never-Trump Christian “thought leaders” found in progressive outlets like The Gospel Coalition (TGC) have been relentless in their anti-Republican rhetoric arguing that the social justice promised by the Democrat party is well enough reason to vote Democrat and that faithful Christians can disagree cordially.

No, they can’t. And today, they are seeing why.

Joe Carter, a prominent contributor to The Gospel Coalition, a former staff member of the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), and an associate pastor at David Platt’s McLean Bible Church in the Washington D.C. area has been nothing but clear in his anti-Trump rhetoric over the years. Carter, like his former boss at the ERLC, Russell Moore, has spent countless hours trying to convince Christians that Donald Trump’s personal immorality gives Democrats — who want to murder children, force the celebration of homosexuality, and strip the Church of her religious freedoms — the moral high ground.

Russell Moore, before Trump was elected in 2016, spent an entire year writing, tweeting, and speaking to Christians about how immoral it would be to support Trump.

Now, they’re reaping what they have sown.

Joe Carter recently penned an article at The Gospel Coalition rightly criticizing legislation that is largely supported by Democrats and rejected by Republicans. The legislation, known as the Equality Act, will attempt to force Christians to violate their conscience on matters of sexual morality. Carter acknowledges this in the article.

Carter writes that “this legislation could be used to restrict the religious freedom of churches and religious nonprofits, including religious schools; set back protections for women in athletics, at work, and in private spaces like showers and locker rooms; and inhibit the ability of everyday Americans to live in accord with their beliefs.”

Indeed, it can — and it will. This is what the Democrat party wants. Why it’s so difficult for people to understand this concept is mind-boggling. Was Donald Trump immoral? Yes. But the difference here is simple and notable — Donald Trump never tried to legislate his personal immorality into national policy. The Democrats will; and they are.

Russell Moore also notes, as quoted in Carter’s article, “Every human being ought to be treated with dignity, but placing sexual orientation and gender identity as protected classes in this kind of legislation would have harmful consequences.”

“This legislation would make the situation worse in this country,” Moore continued, “both in terms of religious freedom and in terms of finding ways for Americans who disagree to work together for the common good.”

Well, duhh!

Again, we tried to warn you. But you hated Donald Trump so much — and for what? Because he said mean things to Rosie O’Donnell? Because he had extra-marital sex? Donald Trump is no Christian, and we shouldn’t expect him to live and act like one. That’s not to say he isn’t accountable to God and his law, but as a leader of the country, he and his policies certainly would have given the Church more protection from the kind of attacks on freedoms that’s happening now right before our eyes.

Way to go, foolish people.
