SBC Leftists Up in Arms Because Al Mohler is Speaking at Conservative Conference With Ron DeSantis

Anyone who has followed my writing over the years knows that I am not a staunch defender of Al Mohler. In fact, I’ve been very critical of him when necessary pointing out what I believed to be a compromise of the Christian faith in favor of pragmatism. Mohler has a reputation for what we have dubbed “leading from behind,” meaning, that he generally eventually lands on the right side of an issue, speaking to it, but often not until the damage has been done.

Yet, what I’ve seen in Mohler recently is encouraging. He appears to be taking a stronger stance toward not only protecting the integrity of Christian doctrine but also the witness of the Christian faith in culture and politics. Lest this is misconstrued as a blanket endorsement of everything Al Mohler, I can assure you it is not. However, contrary to some other friends in my circles, I intend to give credit where it is due.

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.

And here, credit is due.

Al Mohler is scheduled to speak at the National Conservatism conference in September in Miami, FL. Along with Mohler will be other conservative speakers including FL governor, Ron DeSantis. And since Ron DeSantis and others listed alongside Mohler are staunch, unabashed conservatives unwilling to compromise with the evil that is the Democrat party, this has left some left-leaning Southern Baptists with their panties in a wad.

For example, Ben Marsh, a pastor in NC posted a ridiculous thread spreading the debunked left-wing Jan 6 conspiracy theory. That tweet was retweeted by Matt Warner implying that because Al Mohler is speaking with DeSantis, that the SBC is going “all in on the Big Lie.”

How stupid? But that didn’t stop Southern Baptist non-thinking pastor, Dwight McKissic—who supports abortion and left-wing lunatics like Stacey Abrams and Ketanji Brown Jackson—from retweeting that dumb tweet.

Of course, these men don’t believe these things, and they certainly don’t believe that anyone on this speaking list is going around calling Donald Trump their “Lord,” especially Al Mohler. They’re just regurgitating leftist talking points. But that isn’t what this is about.

Do I care if Al Mohler is speaking at this event? No, not really. It’s not a religious event, it is a political and cultural event. And I have no doubt that what Mohler says here will be grounded in his Christian worldview. But that’s not what these men are upset about. They aren’t upset that he’s speaking at a political event about politics and culture, they’re upset that he’s speaking at a conservative political event with others that these leftists deem to be a threat to their progressive movement.
