“Others have been pressured to withdraw. We will, of course, honor these requests. In fact, out of fairness to them, we are willing to release complete, unedited footage of their interviews apart from the cinedoc. That will allow them (and others) to consider their words with the assurance that they have not been edited in ways in which they do not approve.”
(Samuel Smith – Christian Post) The head of Founders Ministries has responded to the backlash he received after the organization released a controversial trailer last week for its upcoming documentary that was highly critical of the social justice push within the Southern Baptist Convention and evangelical churches.
Tim Ascol, president of the Reformed Baptist organization and a Florida pastor, issued a lengthy statement this week expressing “regret” for the “pain and confusion” caused by the release of a nearly four-minute trailer for the organization’s upcoming documentary “By What Standard?”
As the “cinedoc” seeks to expose a “postmodern, deconstructionist worldview” that has “given rise to godless ideologies” such as radical feminism, critical race theory, and intersectionality, the film is supposed to feature commentaries from several prominent leaders within the SBC.
