Kathleen Parker notices the SBC

What do you know? The latest iteration of Southern Baptist pretentiousness and moral squalor has captured the attention of Washington Post columnist Kathleen Parker.

Russell Moore is either a politically disillusioned troublemaker or a prophet in a time of darkness. In a 4,000-word letter charging the Southern Baptist Convention with racism and sexual abuse, he has single-handedly brought the evangelical Christian world to its knees.

Moore’s words carry weight not least because he’s one of the most-respected evangelicals in the United States. His greatest sin seems to be that he often thinks, speaks and acts as a Christian. Among other things, he was a frequent critic of President Donald Trump, which borders on blasphemy among the Trump faithful.

Since I’ve said for years that Russell Moore is one of the very few genuinely-decent men [No women allowed!] in the upper reaches of the Boss Hogg-ish SBC, I’m not particularly surprised to find him on the Outs with the club leadership; since the so-called Conservative Resurgence it has degenerated into little better than a cult of self-abasement superintended by amoral predators.
