Moore eventually deleted her tweet after outrage. She made the mistake of being too blatantly honest about her position, as the evangelical social justice strategy is nuance, not clarity. However, the Social Justice Warriors came out in full defense of her and even accused Mohler (and others who disagree with Moore) of “bullying” and “attacking.”
(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) There are real-life consequences of the Social Justice Movement that extend well-beyond the daily Twitter orgy that regularly has evangelical SJW’s in a dogpile of slathering, self-flattering, virtue-signaling accolades and sensual backslaps. What the Social Justice Movement represents is an absolute undoing of evangelical conservatism. And we are seeing that undoing particularly in the realm of perceived gender roles.
Our argument has been that progressive and leftist agitators have been infiltrating historically conservative evangelical circles through primarily New Calvinist parachurch organizations like 9Marx, The Social Gospel Coalition, The White Horse Inn, the ERLC, and Southeastern Seminary. These organizations all take money (lots of it) from leftist financiers like James Riady, George Soros, and the Kern Foundation. And their goal, so we have argued, is to convince conservative evangelicals that they can maintain their conservatism while also embracing leftist positions on important social issues that are ideologically grounded in political theories like Cultural Marxism, Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality, and Liberation Theology. And most recently, we have seen the consequences of the Great Awokening for our position on women in ministry.
So-called “conservative” evangelical leaders, who Pulpit & Pen has been telling your for a decade are leftist change agents – Ed Stetzer, Russell Moore, Thabiti Anyabwile, and most at the Gospel Coalition – have circled their wagons around the wild-eyed charismatic prophetess, Beth Moore, as she has pressed hard for full egalitarianism. Letting her do their dirty work of changing the evangelical mindset on women preaching, they have encouraged her frenzied social media activism. Absurdly and with all the subtleness and craftiness of Satan, these evangelical leftists are still insisting they are complementarian, even though they oppose everything that complementarianism stands for. They are trying to retain the word, while outright rejecting its position.
