“A while back, notable Southern Baptist pastor and racial activist, Matt Chandler, preached a sermon stating that he would hire an African American 7 over an Anglo 8 for a staff position at his church. However, he said if the African American was a 6, go with the Anglo because otherwise, it would be “tokenism” and he preaches against that kind of stuff.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) The Presbyterian Church (PCA) General Assembly has released a “racial reconciliation” study conducted in conjunction with LifeWay — a Southern Baptist entity — that calls on PCA to embrace affirmative action and reverse discrimination against white people to advance their “woke” ideology….
The study is tainted with Marxist roots — particularly, Critical Race Theory — and advances a theme that has become mainstream in Evangelical denominations.
Critical Race Theory (CRT) emerged as an offshoot of Critical Theory, a neo-Marxist philosophy that has its roots in the Frankfurt School and its methods are drawn from Karl Marx and Sigmund Freud. CRT teaches that institutional racism exists within every structure of society and that these structures are intrinsically designed in such a manner as to protect and preserve “white supremacy” in our culture. Further, CRT does not rely on factual statistics or objective evidence to support the theory, rather it relies on anecdotal evidence and personal experience.
