Russell Moore Is Finally Out At ERLC

Good news and the Southern Baptist Convention usually don’t go together, but it is worth sharing the good news that Russell Moore, the most famous cuckservative evangelical in America, is out at ERLC and is headed to a significantly smaller platform at Christianity Today.

Washington Post:

“Prominent Southern Baptist leader Russell Moore, who blasted former president Donald Trump and his evangelical fans, announced Tuesday that he will be leaving the leadership of the Southern Baptist Convention where he has been the president of its policy arm since 2013.

Moore’s departure from the convention’s Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) follows other high-profile exits from the denomination, including popular Bible teacher Beth Moore (no relation) and Black pastors. Some evangelicals are wondering what their departures signal about the direction of the convention, which has included louder voices on the far right in recent years.

Russell Moore will be joining the staff of Christianity Today, the evangelical magazine founded by the late evangelist Billy Graham, where he will write content and help launch a “Public Theology Project,” hosting events and gatherings about theology. …”

Christianity Today last appeared on my radar screen when it published an editorial that endorsed Trump’s impeachment. It crystallized the divide between elite evangelicals who are Never Trump and ordinary evangelicals who are Trump super fans.

Rod Dreher who is no fan of Donald Trump called these people the Wine Cave Evangelicals at the time. They are upper class evangelicals who want to be seen as politically correct. It seems about right.

“Readers of this blog who are not part of Evangelicalism should not overinterpret this editorial. CT has for some time now stopped addressing the mainstream of the movement (which has moved right), and instead remains the magazine for what you might call Wine Cave Evangelicals. …”

The editor-in-chief of the rag put it this way:

“We speak for moderate, center-right, and center-left evangelicals. The far right—they don’t read us. They don’t care what we think. They think we’ve been coopted by liberalism. So, I understand that we do not represent the entire movement. And anyone who thinks that CT does, that’s just not the case. …”

In other words, they speak for the wealthy suburban David French wing of evangelicalism, which is a significantly smaller group than the Trumpist wing.

  1. “As a Mississippian”. How did the South go from righteous Christians living in an honor culture to this thing. No matter who you are it is simply impossible to not admire Jackson and Lee. They are two of the most admirable human beings to ever walk the Earth.

    • .”How did the South go from righteous Christians living in an honor culture to this thing. ”

      Dysgenics at work.
      When natural forces are abrogated, you get toxic results, Russell Moore.

  2. Christianity Today also published articles declaring George Floyd to be a holy man and Christian martyr, and agreeing that he was systematically murdered by White people’s racism.

    • “Christianity Today also published articles declaring George Floyd to be a holy man ”

      Fits the pattern.

  3. Praise The Good Lord!

    How is it that those Woke fellows at the top of our Southern Church ever came to their senses and got rid of Reverend Dimmesdale?

    Did I miss something?

    Am I to believe that common Southern folk are retaking our church?

  4. So glad I ditched religion when I was 10. Best means of mind control yet devised by man.

    Ambiguous text and its attraction of people pre-disposed to accept its interpretation on faith. Perfect opportunity for charlatans.

    • Takes one to know one. “Answer a fool according to his folly, less TB thought wise in his own eyes.“ Proverbs

    • Churches were progressively and incrementally bought out , over time.

      “Perfect opportunity for charlatans.”
      Sadly true, the worst of people taking advantage of the most innocently sincere.

      • One has to wonder why the tribe-worshipping Christian funda-mentalists don’t just go and convert to Judaism? They worship it more than their own religion. Same god, some of the same rules.

  5. Moore never was white. What is his real ethnicity? He looks Arab or Turkish or…….nah…..

    Henry Ford created the Ford Foundation, Billy Graham created this rag: both subverted by shitlib scum of the earth.

    It simply never fails.

  7. The SBC only jettisoned this toxic turd because more and more congregations were stopping their contributions. Took them over 8 years. Slow learners !

  8. Political Correctness, not Christianity, is our present day religion & it is a virulently Anti-White one.
