Earlier this morning, The Dissenter broke the news that Southern Baptist Convention president would be participating in a talk with a pro-LGBTQ, pro-abortion activist named Anthea Butler to bash other brothers and sisters in Christ who identify in some way as “Christian Nationalists”—a catchall phrase tossed at many conservative Christians who believe in the Scriptures as the immutable moral standard for society. This event is part of a swath of events being hosted by the Texas Tribune festival in September and is made up of roughly 95 percent Democrat progressives with a few faux neo-conservatives in the mix. If you want more information on that, click here.
Now, it has been brought to my attention that another former Southern Baptist Convention leader, Russell Moore, will be hosting an event at a queer affirming episcopal church to air his grievances about conservative Christianity and to push his book, “How Evangelicalism Lost It’s Way.” This, too, is part of the same Texas Tribune festival and can be seen at the link below:
The event is being held at St. David’s Episcopal Church in Austin, TX, which makes no bones about being openly queer-affirming. The church’s website reads:
St. David’s is an open and affirming church. We believe that God loves us all – no exceptions. The Episcopal Church also has a legacy of inclusion, aspiring to tell and exemplify God’s love for every human being; and all those who are called may serve as bishops, priests, and deacons in our church. Laypeople and clergy cooperate as leaders at all levels of our church. Leadership is a gift from God and can be expressed by all people in our church, regardless of gender, sexual identity, or orientation. We are an open and affirming parish located in downtown Austin, and our parish family stretches throughout the metropolitan area.
It shouldn’t be surprising that the man who believes men dressed like women and handling little children in public libraries is a “blessing of liberty” wouldn’t be turned off by the overt sexual perversion taking place in this church. Nonetheless, he indulges. Here’s more from this “church”:
The irony here is that these clowns, Russell Moore and David French, have the audacity to complain that Evangelicalism has “lost its way”—mainly because there was a lot of support for Donald Trump (over Joe Biden and Hillary Clinton) within the Church over the last few years. In these clowns’ minds, Evangelicals who voted for Trump have “lost their way” while those who voted for sodomy, abortion, and every other agenda on the godless progressive platform have stood firm in their faith and held the moral high ground.
And what’s worse is that so many Evangelical leaders and pastors, including Southern Baptists, took this clown seriously when he led the SBC’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC).
