“Hatmaker conflates freedom in Christ with freedom to sin. Her version of “freedom” is actually a bondage to sin — an inability to escape sin and its consequences — and she inflicts this eternal damnation upon those who need to be set free.”
(Jeff Maples – Reformation Charlotte) Jen Hatmaker, who first publicly renounced Christianity in an interview with Jonathan Merritt — a gay activist and son of former Southern Baptist Convention president, James Merritt — and says she first questioned Evangelical Christianity because gay people couldn’t have sex with each other, is now calling for a mass exodus from conservative, biblical denominations.
Hatmaker writes on her Facebook page a scathing denunciation of conservative biblical beliefs referring to those who hold to a biblical sexual ethic and treat the Scriptures as the inerrant and authoritative Word of God as denominations and churches that “diminish women” and “harm or exile LGBTQ Christians” and “peddle shame and guilt and sorrow.”
