Kevin Smith, who was not a part of the 9Marks panel on racism at the 2022 Southern Baptist Convention, apparently made himself a part of the panel and took the microphone to express his opinion about Trump voters in the Southern Baptist Convention. Kevin Smith has served as the Vice-Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC).

Smith drew the attention of Southern Baptists after it was asked on social media if Smith made a racist remark toward white people who voted for Trump:

As Big Tech continues to censor conservative publications like ours, we must increasingly rely on supporters to continue our work.

To clarify, it was Kevin Smith who made that comment—and it was far worse.

I’d love to know what some white brothers think about this. White (unintelligible). You mentioned ten years as a window and I’m less hopeful ten years later. I think some Southern Baptists lost their minds when a black man was elected president. Not all, but some.

I think some Southern Baptists were unloving to black people beginning in 2012 with the killing of Trayvon Martin. I don’t mean agree about politics or policy…I just mean giving a darn that somebody else is hurting who is supposed to be your brother or sister in Christ.

And I think some Southern Baptists just bent over and became political whores with this whole Trump stuff. And if black innerrantists like Ralph West (Pastor of Houston’s The Church Without Walls who announced he left the SBC) feels alienated and black innerrantists like John Onwuchekwa (Pastor of Cornerstone Church in Atlanta who left the SBC) feels alienated and black innerrantists like Charlie Dates (Left the SBC) feels alienated, I just wonder if white brothers think this has been kind of crazy- black/white stuff going on, Asian, Hispanic. Just people who aren’t white feeling like they’re tolerated but not really embraced.

I’m not talking about me. I’ve been here thirty years so I got true friendships, but people in their twenties haven’t been here thirty years. So I just wanted to (unintelligible) what white brothers think the race thing is in the SBC?”

Here is the video (HT/Protestia):

Smith went on to try to rationalize his outrageous comments by framing it as a “discussion among friends” where “some guys always get their panties-in-a-wad whenever race is discussed.”
