“But why are they silent about slavery that still takes place throughout the world, while complaining endlessly about slavery that ended a century and a half ago in the United States? According to world relief organizations, there is real slavery (not racism-caused wildfires) going on in the world that literally enslaves people with chains and beats them with whips.”
(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) Why aren’t America’s ‘woke’ evangelicals – who incessantly speak of the racist past of their Christian forefathers – doing anything to end real racism and slavery that still exists out in the world? Ever eager to discuss the need for reparations generations after the end of slavery in the United States, which came about by the shedding of American blood and treasure (both black and white) after hundreds of years of abolitionist preaching (both black and white), a new crowd of militant Jesse Jackson-type evangelical community activists are yet altogether silent on slavery that still persists throughout the world.
The only difference between these individuals and Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton is that these men and women claim to be “Reformed,” riding the wave of a popular cultural phenomenon, the so-called Reformed Resurgence.
