(Pulpit & Pen News) With James Riady, a corrupt Globalist and leftist financier funding Reformed Theological Seminary and other Calvinist-leaning institutions, and with George Soros funding projects of evangelicals like Russell Moore through his Open Societies Foundation, it’s reasonable to question whether or not outspoken individuals in our institutions are change agents for well-funded political causes. How do Marxists, leftists, and globalists get placed in ostensibly conservative evangelical institutions? Moreover, how do those change agents become prominent? And in the case of Kyle J. Howard, how does a lowly student at Southern Baptist Theological Seminary – who seems to be a rabid leftist who is ardently and vocally opposed to what Southern Baptists traditionally (and currently in the majority) oppose wind up at the head table with evangelical elites at the recent MLK50 event?
I’ve hosted conferences with “big names.” I’ve organized those lunches. And, I can tell you, not just anybody gets to sit at the lunch table with the featured guests. Although I found the speakers who came at my invitation – like Paul Washer, Voddie Baucham, James White, Justin Peters, Phil Johnson – most were personable and relatable people, speaker luncheons were typically reserved for speakers and conference organizers. And then I saw this ironic photo tweeted out by Russell Moore.
Ironic, I say, because at the virtue-signaling MLK veneration conference – which was designed to change the way people vote and little more – Russell Moore failed to see the irony of the folks at the table being self-segregated by melanin count. PR-wise, the photo seemed woefully lacking in self-awareness. Aside from this chuckle of oversight, the photo included some VIPs, including – other than Russell Moore – Matt Chandler, Beth Moore, Phillip and Jasmine Holmes (the son-in-law and daughter of Voddie Baucham), and…Kyle J. Howard (second from front, left side). One of these people is not like the other.
