(Pulpit & Pen News) That’s the response that is due the recent SBC Echoes post defending the former Democratic Staffer, animal rights activist, Martin Luther King celebrator, Cultural Marxist, illegal immigrant amnesty-supporter and George Soros partner, Russell Moore. In polemics there’s a term called “website orthodox,” and it’s a term with which anyone capable of entry-level discernment should be familiar. Website orthodox refers to someone who has an orthodox statement of faith hyperlinked on their website, to which they can point and deflect from their criticism. For example, IHOP has a perfectly orthodox statement of faith on their website, but in reality, they’re a circus cult and freakshow sub-Christian sect.
In the case of Russell Moore, he’s “website conservative.” On paper, the man looks like a conservative. He’s clean-cut, he comes from Southern Seminary and has men like Albert Mohler and other bonified conservatives in his entourage, and he can put together an “agenda” for the coming year that passes the conservatism test. In reality, Russell Moore is a radical leftist – with a few exceptions on a few issues – and has done more to drag the Southern Baptist Convention to liberal progressivism than anyone since Conservative Resurgence tossed men like Moore from the Convention. For the less-discerning, more-sycophantic, simple-minded brethren over at SBC Echoes, the Russell Moore they see on paper (papers that pass through his public relations department) is conservative.

You may have heard that some among our Southern Baptist Convention are intent on bearing false witness against Russell Moore and the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. Dr. Moore is accused of pushing a progressive agenda at the ERLC. He must be stopped, it is argued.
Well, the ERLC has just released their 2018 Legislative Agenda. If this is the new progressive agenda, then sign me up! I am hoping that someone with contacts to Chuck Schumer and Nancy Pelosi can pass it along to them so they will know what things to work toward in 2018. I’m not sure they know that they are supposed to be supporting things like the sanctity of human life and religious liberty.
