(Ray Fava – Evangelical Dark Web) Jonathan Merritt is the homosexual son of James Merritt, the former president of the Southern Baptist Convention. In 2021, James Merritt endorsed the preaching of his openly homosexual son at a mainline church in New York. The preaching that James Merritt called “brilliant and faithful to the gospel and the second coming” was trite, new-age, and contained a false gospel. This issue ultimately forced James Merritt to pre-emptively resign from joining the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary staff. But James Merritt made a comeback in 2023 where he led the charge on the floor of the Annual Southern Baptist Convention to fight for a procedural move to protect female pastors in the SBC. Now his son is promoting his homo-grooming book for small children, titled, My Gungle and Me.
