"The event is generating national headlines as those attending confront critical race theory women's roles how to handle sexual abuse and serious allegations regarding racism and misogyny on the part of denominational leaders had like to make three predictions today which i believed to be biblical and relevant to every christian in america whether you're a southern baptist or not. One southern baptists like other conservative. Christians will be portrayed as negatively as possible. I did an internet search for southern baptist convention. Sp see this morning before writing this article. Here's what i found the washington post headlines. Secret recordings leaked letters explosive secrets rocking the southern baptist convention. Abc news ads. Southern baptists meet amid controversy over leaked letters the new york times reports take the ship. Conservatives aimed to commandeer southern baptists. all of this is true letters leaked after. Dr russell moore resigned as president of the ethics and religious liberty. Commission of the sbc have indeed been rocking the denomination since they contain references to misogyny racism among denominational leaders. That if true are grievous more on this in a moment and a group at the convention is hoping to steer the denomination in an even more conservative direction. However i have seen no coverage in the main line press of the event that preceded the convention the. Send the conference at which michael w smith led worship and renowned pastor. Tony evans brought the keynote message. Dr evans likened christians to referees and a football field know they may be booed by angry parties and both teams but they understand that they are not meant to be liked and seek to abide by the rule. Book that dictates the game he added. Our true calling is not to be part time saints but fulltime christians pulling heaven down to earth as true reflections of the amigo day. We have watched our nation declined because there aren't enough accurate reflections of christ invading the culture. I wish his profound words had been widely reported. Along with the controversies. That are making news. But i'm not surprised that they were not biblical. Christians have been marginalized in recent years for our commitment to biblical morality. Now we are being stigmatized and ostracized a secular ideology that seeks to reject and replace biblical truth with itself. Centric ideology is rising media. That seems to clearly endorse the progressive over. The conservative in our culture are complicit in this narrative. None of this should surprise us. Jesus was clear and john fifteen eighteen if the world hates you know that it hated me before it hated you to our cultural credibility will.

"Southern baptist. This year. i've been a lawyer list. I pinned a editorial for the washington. Post a few years ago about why. Why am remaining. Southern baptists And so i was really trying to appeal to black pastors. Don't leave that's helped make it right but here we here. We are again some three years later. Four years later and the cit is just another way of of must muscling the ox trying to a police racial discussions that this is approved. Why people alone will determine what can can be said about race within literature. Sunday school literature from Mattress stands and two degree. You buy it from your pope. They have will declared that anybody who says any monica. Crt critical race theory may be true. You're out of touch with the baptist faith and message no longer be dr emily in line with the southern baptist convention. So this is. This is horrible. What's happening in this regard. I've got his judge in a southern baptist convention. Make an issue out of cit. Something jessica wrong with you and i have talked about when you when those young pastors sided with you in twenty seventeen you saw a new moral heart beating within the southern bats and there is a larger moral crisis. There are new forces working here where conservatives tra- conservatives will say have gotten so far from the bible that they're using culture as scripture and on the other side you have people who would also call themselves theologically conservative and are who are saying in your fight of the culture wars. You guys have left the bible behind. Does that seem right to you. Think you've described it quite well. I think the ground has shifted from the fundamentalist takeover conservative resurgent group. Whatever you wanna call him that Had these heartland dues on race and women but because they could uphold in arizona. The bible exclusive loyalties as crazy. Some doctors that we all share people take a pass on their racial views and their views on the women but you have generation now This is not dead grandfather's convention anymore. We will not go back. We want the logical orthodoxy. Theological conservatism if you wanna call it that but we don't want misogyny and we don't want racism nor do we want kristen nationalism nor do we want some kind of fusion between the republican party and the southern baptist convention. That's the new group is coming up to the front. And i got hip. They group the win come nashville next week. So we are standing at this precipice. You lead a church of three to four thousand. Yes yes yes so if in in the coming days. The southern baptists elect one of the two people who support this kind of thinking this hardliners. Who really aren't taking racism seriously. Are you ready to leave. The southern baptist. You know my hardest torn that's a sodomy says. I'd rather like candles than curse darkness. And they'd be is what it is. It sometimes seems hopeless. But there's another side of me says and people have been calling me this week says i'm needed. My position is needed. And god maybe purging and clinton sbc and things you've been fighting for for years and now maybe moving in the right direction. You shouldn't leave. So i only thing i can tell you. I'm i'm torn. I'm torn at this. Point has any of this. She can your face in any way has not if anything it has strengthened. My faith in it has caused me to appreciate. The faith of my child who dad was bad. Basically by law in common culture segregated. I didn't have the option in my childhood. Have of attending a white southern baptist church if wanted to know it has not shikha my fade. Ironically though there is a black pastor who has confided in me he because we positional crt and nephews and practice of race. He said has caused him to question. Is it legit is the legitimate. We read the same bible. How do they think like this. And it has literally shaking his faith in and we're ministry to him at. That's so do nov eight path who is causing him a rethink the validity of the entire christian. Faith that's pastor. Dwight mckissic of texas talking with elisa griswald now allies if one of these hardliners is elected president at the convention this week and dwight mckissic walks out and if other black pastors more progressive churches leave the southern baptist convention. Then what the aftershocks of what will happen in nashville really remains to be seen. If there is an exodus of postures of color and and other churches and hardliner wins the economic fallout of that in terms of contributions to the convention could be quite significant for the past couple of years. The convention has already been losing both members and money so continuing on that downward trend could seriously weaken. Its hold over american religion over evangelicalism in america if it turns out that there is this crisis of moral authority within the sbc and that crisis reflects larger splits within american evangelicalism. We're talking about nearly a hundred million americans who are going to be wrestling with what it means to be a good person and what it means to follow. Jesus.

"Is holding its annual meeting. Now this is the largest protestant denomination. The country in the event is going to be huge. The two thousand twenty meeting of course was canceled but this year more than sixteen thousand people are expected to come to nashville to elect a new president. The election will also be extremely contentious. Well-known members have left the group already in protest of the denominations politics and at the center of the rift is an essential question. How should van christians deal with systemic racism. I spend my days and nights thinking about this split. The new yorkers elisa. Griswold has been reporting on the southern baptist convention and she spoke recently with one of its leading pastors elisa. What's on the table at this meeting. Why is the election of a new president for this group so complicated and so essential. This seems to an outsider. Like i don't know a routine piece of business so on one level. it's just. It's a fight over the role of racism inside of the southern baptists but on another level really a fight over the the heart of the convention over who holds the moral authority going forward. And what we're seeing now play out. Is this really new. Reckoning with in evangelical community. And what's happening is you have a group of hardliners. This pre trump. Right this is seventies and eighties christian right for a long time. These hardliners have been using the bible to double down on basically misogyny and racism. Women must be submissive just old school ideas of leadership and white patriarchy. And what's happening. And what's pretty exciting to watch. Is that a new. And they're theologically conservative. Immune these guys are no moderates. But they're standing up to the hardliners and saying you know what don't use the bible anymore to basically shore up the republican party and would costed what was the. What was the tipping point for those who are looking very closely. The most visible and vocal invite to bird talking point would be donald trump but this has been happening for a much longer time part of it has to do with the weakening of churches in general for the first time in history. We have less than half americans even going to church who members of church so as we see our institutions die. We see churches die. We see old categories between democrats and republicans breakdown people no longer adhere to the old boxes and that is super exciting. Because what will be born out of that has yet to be seen right. Now if you're looking at the right-leaning media right wing media you are hearing all the time about critical race theory as if it's something that is dominant and infecting the culture in ways that we can't even begin to to comprehend that that it's some sort of massive wave and influence how critical race theory take hold as such a Enemy of the right. And how do they view what it is or isn't critical race. Theory is simply a set of tools use mostly by legal scholars since the seventies and eighties to identify structural racism. It's that simple. But it's the latest bogeyman. In a long line of academic theories that are threatening to the right particularly the christian right. These people are coming for your children. They're going to teach you that. There is no god. You know everyone's going to be homosexual all this kind of like fear. Mongering and fear baiting and the fear of critical race series really being pushed by the hardliners. Who are running for president of the. Sbc right now they talk about crt as basically a form of racial discrimination against white people and a secular tool that is anti-biblical and therefore evil. Here's one of the candidates. Mike stone in april interview. He gave to another pastor named mathew tarpley when southern bad were dealing with these issues using nothing but the word of god led by and filled with the holy spirit of god. We've been making progress in these areas but since these on biblical etiologies were injected into the bloodstream of southern bag. Abbas conversation we have seen nothing in the last nearly two years. Now nothing on this issue except increase hostility accusations conflict. And i think that's by design. By that i mean by demonic design because these unbelievable ideologies they are not tools of unity. They are weapons of division. What makes critical race theory different from a lot of these other. Basically fear based tactics is to say that it doesn't exist negates the experience of people of color so profoundly that it makes people on the right willing to step out of that allows you recently spoke to pastor dwight mckissic who is he and what is his story. What's his background. So dwight mckissic is a pastor of a church with three to four thousand people in arlington texas and he watched really with the election of trump and pre election of trump. Watch the kind of growing support for white. Nationalism inside of the southern baptists with alarm in a process of studying election in determining how vote. I discovered a group called the outright. And they were so shaded with the republican party so i began to research them. Who what do they believe. What are they thinking. And it was a parent to mean that they were white supremacist group. They believed that Western society was superior they believe that white people were gods special. Joe's significant people and I discovered that with those in the southern baptist ranks who were a part of the outright and so constructed resolution. He decided in twenty seventeen at this big conference. They have that he was going to call on his fellow southern baptist to come out against white nationalism and the alright and just a little context. There was some precedent for this in one thousand nine hundred five. The sbc issued formal apology for the role that slavery replayed from its very inception in the eighteen. Hundreds so in some ways mckissic's resolution continued in that more recent tradition of attempting to call out racism within the spca. Thought it would be a no brainer committed with accepted and they would vote that the sbc was totally opposed to outright in supremacist ideology. And when that resolution did not get out of committee man that was just a major shocker twice the vote to support this failed so they did vote the third time after voted down twice on the third round and i think solely so that they wouldn't be embarrassed. The acquiesced how did it feel to watch this going down feeling of exasperation. It was a feeling of shock. I was i was stunned actually And black pastors coming to me saying we're out. Is you know this is clear where we feel like the other here we this. This can't be our home if if people have to vote twice on our dignity this. Something is fundamentally flawed here. He needs to decide whether not he's gonna stay within the southern baptists. So he'll do that in the coming days based on who is elected president for the.

"A book about online communities called antisocial. I think this is true of everyone that like. It's about the rocket ship emojis. It's about the lake memes. That is like honestly how most of us form our decisions and then to say like i did this because of the financial crash is like okay maybe to some extent you did but like really that. Was that really your primary motivation. Like it just seems like that's not actually how life works. When we talked andrew had just come across a quote from the literary critic lionel trilling from his book liberal imagination published in nineteen fifty. And it's exactly about this aspect of the internet. I just read this this morning. But it says ideology is not acquired by thought as he put it but by breathing the haunted air. It is a stream submerged. Life of habit and semi habit in which to ideas we attach strong passions but no very clear awareness of the concrete reality of their consequences. Now if you followed the game stop story at the time you know that there are many other chapters here robin in a couple of other platforms eventually started limiting users ability to buy game stop. Stock politicians got angry. Congress held hearings and some people started to wonder if maybe the whole squeeze might have been manipulated by the same rich traders. That wall street bets people thought they were sticking to things on the internet. Never simple as you want them to be. At any rate there are a lot more of us in the market now than there were before. In addition to the robin hood app there's fidelity e-trade other platforms that. Let people like me trait stock commission free and wall street. Bets has gone from around two million subscribers at the beginning of the year or two around ten million now so whether or not. I'm part of an ideological movement indefinitely part of a financial movement. I asked sheila kolhatkar about this. What's been called the democratization of finance. Would you intimate that game. Stop is going to be the last convulsion like this that we're gonna see driven by like this new flood of retail investors. I think with the game. Stop thing proved. Is that how easy it is for something like this to happen. All it takes is a little bit of momentum to build on one of these websites are on some other platforms so in fact. I think we should be expecting to see Many more episodes like this in fact. I think it's going to be happening a lot more. I think now that all these tools are in. Everyone's hands it's going to. It's going to shake things up as for me. I ended up selling my one point zero nine. Oh two shares of game stop. I took a loss of one hundred and fifty five dollars. I was too late to the game. But i'm not gonna stop. Investing there are other opportunities like game. Stop just in the last month. Retail investors have driven up the price of amc movie theaters more than five hundred percent. I mean so. Many new people in the market what could happen Yeah basically now. Invested forty thousand dollars so like house name stocks. I would totally. Oh totally do it again. Maybe three times a year. Now we're not talking about a short squeeze anymore. This is now a fight. It's now a revolution because all of wall street bets is here. So i mean it's still very very large.

"Wall street bets describes itself as like four chan found a bloomberg terminal so they proudly compare themselves to fortune one of the most controversial sites on the internet the place where people go to post memes and also hate speech the site that bertha cunanan movement wall street bet. We're like that but for finance and this is one of the things that starts making suspicious of that simple david and goliath narrative. I may not know a lot about investing. But i do know that. Internet communities are messy places on wall street bets. There are activists. There are trolls and there are a lot of people who really aren't either of those things. So i started talking to some of them. Hey cody sorry my settings for this her off don nelson may changed around this. Is cody herdman again. The nineteen year old investor. Who was dancing in his dorm room. Cody goes to dakota state university. In south dakota he likes video games and metal detecting and he plays on the school football team. Well actually because the cove our school lost most of its funding so they end up cutting my scholarship. Which kinda sucks. But i'm just doing all my stuff on my own time now. It's going to the gym on on my own writing and whatnot. Sheila put us in touch. She had talked to cody for her robinhood piece for the magazine. He was a regular wall street. Bets user. He just kind of liked the way people talked about. Investing their memes are like a second language for cody. I mean as a zoom. Or whatever as someone i mean been very in the medium culture for a very long time. I mean it was a lot more appealing to see other people that i mean had the same sense of humors. May i guess instead of just a boomer ranting about stocks and words editor to picture me to possibly understand so late last year cody's on wall street bats and he notices people talking about game stop and the possibility of a lot of money. Investing in to cody gets very excited about this and he buys in pretty quickly game stops price starts to go up to two thousand dollars two thousand bucks so like what's two thousand bucks to you. That's a lot. And i've never had it on money at once. Saw cody gain stop at an average price of around forty dollars so the day hit three fifty was a big day. Cody was like twenty five thousand dollars. I wasn't doing anything crazy. I mean he was have a little happy dance type thing so to summer. Cody wall street. Bats people on wall street bets like game. Stop cody buys game. Stop cody makes money. That story makes perfect sense to me. But that's not david versus goliath. It doesn't sound. Like cody bought game. Stop to stick it to the man. It sounds like you bought game stop. Because he thought he'd make money and he did but this is where things get really interesting. Because after cody invested after he bought game stop. His investment became a david versus goliath story. Where did like sticking it to the hedge. Funds fit into like the list of reasons why you were interested in being part of the game. Stop punk originally. That wasn't really a part of it. But then when i wrote that whole piece i guess about how we're fighting the head us. I mean evanger fathers type thing. I now definitely a big part of it. Cody is talking about something. He posted on a wall. Street bets comment thread the day after the stock at the three hundred and fifty dollar mark on january twenty eighth he wrote in part i am holding to ensure my parents can live comfortable lives at the expense of the assholes that almost cost them their lives. This is for you. Dad cody explain me that his family lost a lot of money in the financial crash. My dad got really screwed over. And oh eight. And i do want to see these hedges suffer. I said kind almost a spiritual successor to occupy wall street at this point where we're instead of literary occupying we are going to bankrupt you now cody's just one guy but for me. He's the kind of game. Stop investor. I hadn't heard about as much in all the coverage. Somebody who's reasons for participating in the game stops squeeze were too complicated to fit a simple narrative. I found other people like that too. I i had my baby. And i was just like i want wanna do something kind of exciting just for fun. I want to get involved in. I would be lying if i said it an scratching edge but there are a lot of things which i love playing video games. Playing chess doesn't have to be gambling. It doesn't have to be money oriented. I'm great at finding things to become obsessive about like the progressive left. Tried to pick up on this and painted as like the working class rising up and it wasn't any of that. It was not what. I call that sarah henry also a game stop investor. Also a wall street bets user. Although i hate wall street. I think the people there are awful. They're awful people. They are absolutely awful people. And if you just simply lake zen out your mind and go like i pay attention to any of that. I just want you to say this is what i think is going to happen with gold and silver commodities in the next six months. Here's why i am playing long. Here's my due diligence. Getting involved in game stop definitely paid off for sarah. So my initial assessment with six thousand six thousand dollars my Total winnings were about twenty thousand dollars. So i came out of the whole thing with twenty two thousand dollars in net profit by the way if you're wondering why it sounds like serious camping because she kind of is. She lives in an rv that she drives around europe and she makes money investing in the way she described her decision to invest in game. Stop it stuck with me. My initial by and was just simply based on the fact felts felt like a thing that was going to happen and then it felt like something was going to happen and it did that. Maybe sounds like a really arbitrary reason to do anything. But it's also maybe the closest anyone. I talked to came to expressing why i bought game stop on january twenty seventh. I mean look a lot of what happens online can seem deeply weird and it can feel comforting to try to say that there's some simple ideology behind it. A bunch of people wanted to take down wall street banks so they got together on this sub reddit and decided to buy a bunch of game. Stop but that story doesn't capture. Why every one of us participated in this movement. Especially on it. I i think. In many many aspects of life and especially in many aspects of online life ideology is a retroactive fit. Iran this theory by andrew marantz andrew is a staff writer at the new yorker and he wrote.

I remember waking up one morning and see the pre market price had jumped up to a two hundred bucks. Just got up and start dancing. Basically 'cause it's like let's go. I can't believe this actually working. We're making money early this year in january. You might remember some pretty unusual business news. Internet takes on wall street. This story is stunning. The stock price for game stop which is a retail video. Game store has been surging more than six hundred percent. So you're literally dancing in your room. I was for a bit Back ally. I was cody. Herdman at the time was a college freshman and he and a few million other small investors did something unprecedented. They took a stock. That wall street considered just about worthless. The video game retailer called game stop and bought it. They bought lots of which sent the price. Soar like cnn to thousands of dollars magically overnight basically turn into like six seven thousand dollars the media used words like frenzy and madness rebellion and tv news went absolutely biblical calling david and goliath struggle to david versus goliath showdown amateur traders. Taking on some of wall. Street's most powerful hedge funds in an epic david versus goliath showed out. But why what was the game. Stop squeeze really all about our producer. Alex barron decided to dive straight in. So it's january twenty seventh. I'm at home in brooklyn and my entire newsfeed is just game. Stop games dot game. Stop i am not an investment guy. I've never bought an individual sheriff stock in my life. But i've found all of this really exciting and so i spent four hundred dollars to buy a share of game. Stop actually one point. Zero nine zero two two two shares. And it's not until i hit send on the order that i think for the first time that by buying game stop i maybe just join some kind of movement. The game stop story seems to me like the latest in a long line of situations. Were something unusual. Happening online causes something really unusual to happen in the quote unquote real Think about something like human or on a totally different note me to these are movements that start online and end us totally reshaping the offline world and it seemed to me that gain stop could be a movement like that that would fundamentally shake up the global financial system. So i think to myself. I should try to figure out exactly what this movement is. So i called sheila kolhatkar. Who writes about business for the new. Let's start with like a building block of the story which is like what is a short squeeze. Do you want to talk about. What a short is i. Yeah okay. What's a short so short selling As a side note. I think had to define what short-selling is like fifty percent of my new yorker stories. So here's what sheila explains to me there. Are these big time. Investors like hedge funds and. They were shorting game. Stop so instead of betting that a stock is going to rise in price. You're betting that it's going to go down. And it made sense that game. Saab a brick and mortar retailer in the midst of a pandemic would go down so some investors on the internet notice that these hedge funds or shorting game stop and start buying game. Stop driving the price. A they want to create something called short squeeze and the higher. The price goes the more pressure it puts on the people who are short the stock and it can lead to them having to go and buy the stock back at really inflated price and yes if you have a big short position. Short-squeeze is your nightmare so potentially huge losses for the hedge funds but also huge gains for regular investors. And all of this is happening at a moment of convergence of a few things so first of all there's the pandemic people are stuck at home and they're bored and they're looking for something to do second. There are all these apps that let average people like me. Trade stocks commission free. I had bought game. Stop using the most popular one of those apps which is called robinhood. Sheila actually just wrote a whole story about robin hood for the magazine. It's a fun easy to use app on your phone. So the effective driving a lot of a new investors into the market and those people the same sorts of people who are attracted to robin hood. Many of them were similar. Sorts of people who were looking at these online message boards the message boards. That's the third part of this convergence. Sheila's talking about is mainly a community on reddit called wall street bets. That's the place where all these investors got together and kind of created the game. Stop squeeze so.

"southern baptist convention" Discussed on The New Yorker Radio Hour

"Baptist convention is holding his annual meeting. Now this is the largest protestant denomination in the country in. The event is going to be huge. The twenty twenty meeting of course was canceled with this year. More than sixteen thousand people are expected to come to nashville to elect a new president. The election will also be extremely contentious well-known members of left. The group already in protest of the denominations politics at the center of the rift is an essential question. How should van jellicoe christians deal with systemic racism. I spend my days and nights thinking about this split. The new yorkers elisa griswald has been reporting on the southern baptist convention and she spoke recently with one of its leading pastors allies. What's on the table at this meeting. Why is the election of a new president for this group so complicated and so essential. This seems to an outsider. Like i know a routine piece of business so on one level. It's just a fight over the role of racism inside of the southern baptist but on another level it's really a fight over the heart of the convention over who holds the moral authority going forward. And what we're seeing now play out. Is this really new. Reckoning with in the evangelical community and what's happening is you have a group of hardliners this is pre trump. right this is seventies and eighties christian right for long time. These hardliners have been using the bible to double down on basically massage and racism. Women must be submissive just old school ideas of leadership and white patriarchy. And what's happening and it's pretty exciting to watch. Is that a new. And they're theologically conservative. I mean these guys are no moderates. But they're standing up to the hard liners and saying you know what don't use the bible anymore to basically shore up the republican party and would cost it. What was the. What was the tipping point for those who are looking very closely. The most visible and vocal invite tuber. Talking point would be donald trump but this has been happening for a much longer time part of it has to do with the weakening of churches in general for the first time in history. We have less than half of americans even going to church members of church so as we see our institutions die we see churches die we see old categories between democrats and republicans breakdown people no longer adhere to the old boxes and that is super exciting. Because what will be born out of that has yet to be seen right. Now if you're looking at the right-leaning media right wing media you are hearing all the time about critical race theory as if it's something that is dominant and infecting the the culture in ways that we can't even begin to to comprehend that that some sort of massive wave and influence how did critical race theory. Take hold as such a a enemy of the right. And how do they view what it is or isn't critical race. Theory is simply a set of tools use mostly by legal scholars since the seventies and eighties to identify structural racism. It's that simple. But it's the latest boogeyman in a long line of academic theories that are threatening to the right particularly the christian. Right these people are coming for your children. They're going to teach you that. There is no god. You know everyone's going to be homosexual all this kind of fear. Mongering and fear baiting and the fear of critical race theory is really being pushed by the hardliners. Who are running for president of the sbc right now they talk about crt as basically a form of racial discrimination against white people and a secular tool that is anti biblical and therefore evil. Here's one of the candidates. Mike stone in an april interview. He gave to another. Pastor named mathew tarpley when southern baptists were dealing with these issues using nothing but the word of god led by and filled with the holy spirit of god. We've been making progress in these areas but since these umbilical ideologies were injected into the bloodstream of southern bag. At conversation we have seen nothing in the last nearly two years. Now nothing on this issue except increase hostility accusations conflict. And i think that's by design. By that i mean by demonic design because these biblical ideologies they are not tools of unity. They are weapons of division. What makes critical race theory different from a lot of these other. Basically fear based tactics is to say that it doesn't exist negates the experience of people of color so profoundly that it makes people on the right willing to step out of that allows you recently spoke to pastor dwight mckissic who is he and what is his story. What's his background. So dwight mckissic is a pastor of a church with three to four thousand people in arlington texas and he watched really with the election of trump and pre election of trump. Watch the kind of growing support for white. Nationalism inside of the southern baptists with alarm in a process of studying the election and determine how vote i discovered a group called the outright and they were so they were associated with the republican party again to research them. Who what do they believe. What are they thinking. And it was a parent to me that they were a white supremacist group. They believed that western society was superior they believe that white people were gods special chosen significant people and i discovered that were those in the southern baptist ranks who were apart of the outright and so Constructed a resolution. He decided in two thousand seventeen at this big conference. They have that he was going to call on his fellow southern baptist to come out against white nationalism and the outright and a little context there was some precedent for this in one thousand nine hundred five. The spca issued a formal apology for the role that slavery played from its very inception and the eighteen. Hundreds so in some ways mckissic's resolution continued in that more recent tradition of attempting to call out racism within the sbc. I thought it would be a no brainer committee would accept it and they would vote. The sbc was totally opposed to all right and white supremacist ideology and when that resolution did not get out of committee man that was. Just a major shocker. Twice the vote to support this failed so they did vote. The third time after voted down twice on the third round. And i think it was solely so that they wouldn't be embarrassed. They acquiesced how did it feel to watch this going down filling of exasperation. It was a feeling of shock. I was i was stunned actually and black pastors coming in saying well. This is clear where we feel like the here. We can't be our home if people have to vote twice on our dignity. This something is fundamentally flawed here. He needs to decide whether or not he's going to stay within the southern baptists. So he'll do that in the coming days based on who is elected president for.

"Church and Dr Russell Moore from the Southern Baptist Convention. You know something else I feel has not been named enough loudly enough and put out for us to grieve and approaches. The way we looked at the maps of our country on election night, there's you know, some things get colored and red and blue. Are there Red States and blue states. But it's a picture of fracture. And it's also a picture of inter woven nous, right. These these divisions They don't just run state to state or county to county there one community to community they run neighborhood to make neighborhoods sometimes house to house. They run through our families. They run through our lives, and they run through our religious traditions, which are gatherings of human beings and therefore microcosm so Each of you has been a bridge person, as your tradition have grappled with divisions and what feel like irreconcilable differences that are also alive in our culture, and I I love to draw you out a little bit on What that ticks and you know what? You've learned what you can share about what it means to reframe. And set these divides on different ground. With the help of religious values, so Bishop Curry. You have been right in the middle of very vitriolic divisions within the Episcopal Church in the Anglican Communion globally. Over same sex marriage and you have also been in very public conversations and that I would say a remark by friendship and respect with, for example, bishops on the other side Of this subject. You know, Here's something you you said in one of those dialogues, the inclusion that is at the heart of the gospel that welcome scale lesbian, bisexual and transgender people. Is the same inclusive, outstretched arms of Jesus that welcomes those who disagree with us. I wonder if you just take us a little bit insight that what you've learned that that we can all Learned from You know, I mean, well, it goes back for me to the 10 Commandments. I am the Lord. Thy God, Thou shalt have no other gods. But me got on Lee. God is God. None of the rest of us are which may come his news in some respect, but it's a great relief. I'm not God, I don't have to pretend to be And therefore humility is a posture that comes with my humanity and I one of the things I've really and I struggle with it. It's not easy to do this. Is. How do I stand and kneel at the same time in my relationships with others, especially with those who disagree with me or I disagree with them? Because I've got to kneel before them as someone created in the image of God, a child of God, just like me. Loved of God. Equally love is an equal opportunity, employer and the love of God is equal. So I've got to kneel before them. In a sense, I mean, and yet at the same time, I must stand with the integrity. And what I've found is there are times when that is reciprocated when I was at one of the conferences of the Anglican primates, the archbishops and deciding bishops from around the world. This was the very difficult 11 of the primate who differed with me profoundly. The two of us got close, in part because he had been a position in a prior life. Um and I had just recently had brain surgery and each day He checked in with me. Michael, How are you doing? I said I'm doing all right, and I checked back with him, and we committed to pray for each other. Not the way some folks that will pray for you. That's not a blessing. That doesn't mean you're about the best, but to really pray for you people can do that. I know everybody can't do that. Most people can. There's there's There's more good and most of us and we can. Yeah, yeah, we're not all called to be bridge people, but some of us are. Some of us were safe enough are Um, yeah, Doctor more. So I just want to say a little bit about your role because I think everybody understands mostly understands what a bishop is, but you are really the chief ethicist of the Southern Baptist Convention. Um You're part of kind of the think tank. You attend to the difficult questions in the public square and inside the faith. And the Southern Baptist Church is the largest Protestant denomination in the United States. Over 14 million members, almost 50,000 churches. But also very differently from for example, the Episcopal Church those air all independent churches, Yes. So to be chief ethicist of that kind of configuration is challenging and so You know when to say that you've been a bridge person in that context, and you really have been a bridge person, especially in recent years in the Southern Baptist Convention's grappling with race, and it's in its history and its president. Want to read something that you said at the 2017 annual convention, which is the only time in the year when the whole Southern Baptist Church comes together, You said. When we stand together as a convention and speak clearly we're saying that white supremacy and racist ideologies are dangerous because they oppress our brothers and sisters in Christ. Oppress those were made in the vision of God. They oppress our mission field even above and beyond that unrepentant racism is not just wrong, Unrepentant racism sends unrepentant, racist to hell. So the, um, resolution you were you were arguing for was initially rejected, but it went on to overwhelmingly nearly unanimously passed. Um, you have said that in your younger days. You were all too eager to fight like the devil to please. The lord. Um but, yeah, talk to us. Because what you did there is you made an argument. But it was an argument embedded in the faith. Yes, And I think that's I think that's what's important is to have consciences that really are shaped by one's convictions and then to live those out as best as possible. Consistently. On. That means if we really do believe that there is a day of judgment, then we have to speak honestly about that. If we really do believe that all human beings were created in the image of God, then any suggestion that that's not true is an assault on the authority of Scripture. That doesn't mean though, that we we have tol again evaporate arguments. I mean, Bishop Bishop Curry and I Would disagree very fundamentally on some of these questions that you just mentioned about sexuality. We probably couldn't serve together. Well, we couldn't serve together in the same congregation or church. That doesn't mean That we have to see one another as a Zen Emese to be evaporated. Rather, we can have what could be very strong disagreements and arguments but still listen to one another in the public arena, So I think there's a distinction between There are certain things that a church in carrying out its mission that we have to agree on. We have to be on the on the same page on certain things in a way that we don't expect those on the outside to necessarily understand, or to agree with us about Um Bishop Curry told the story about coming together with his Friend Bishop on the other side. I hate the way we write it so binary on the other side of the issue that's also a political form an issue but through This matter of health, and you have a wonderful story about a friendship with someone who's part of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship, which is actually a group that split away from the Southern Baptist Convention in part around some of these social issues and That you came together around a shared love of Wendell Berry's poetry..

"A little forty hearing from you so let's get back to work call now with Scott well my friend when I hear your background growing up PK we just record and then I I hear that you have a heart for helping people I'm going to mention something that may sound a little unusual but at one time our ministry hope with our process to give counsel to of the Southern Baptist Convention to pastors and then their wives and yes and that's because the head of of the the president for free for selected to be president of the pastors conference of ugh just what their material and he said would you provide individual council and so that they could sign up before the convention ever started and that it could go either pastors conference which fed right into the convention itself and I mean we were you know I like I pulled the people not just from hope for the heart people I knew that were professional counselors and they have so we really spent quality time and some were struggling you know in all kinds of areas sometimes it was up it miracle attempt whatever it but the issue was the band the pastor from I respect tremendously he said to me in front of all of us for first to may and then before all of us and this is in Indianapolis are members of the so well he said I want you to know pastors are some of the most unhealthy people and the reasons why until yeah and he a new some of these things but yeah they typically don't have someone to talk to because is there not to share pain and difficulties with members of the flock they need to have people outside of the church the because things can be taken wrong admit that all kinds of things they they can feel very lonely and I just thought you know it and I'm not I'm not equating that at all with mental illness I'm saying this situationally I and I've been very very aware of the very difficult a position of pastors wives if one of their children blows it up makes a mistake and if they're not in any demonstrative way you know it's like they'll get blamed and firewood unit five with the pastor's family the parents let this go and and and it's almost it's it's very very harsh of those who are pastors wives have described to me such pain end of and there is an appropriate ministry that at it let me ask have you ever thought of having any type of ministry said she grew up as a PK and I'm sure you are the perfect child at home knowing that a lot but by far just I mean just that well the book your available the case though yeah yeah one in a million but so so so the point is there is a tremendous need now it's not easy okay our pastor to get to go for counselling are to seek but sometimes if it's not phrases counseling if it if it could be called coaching if it could be because of you know a type of discipleship but coaching is has a whole different flavor of and yet you can deal with I I know they're supposed to be different seven other there's a difference counseling is supposed to deal with the past and get you healthy and hold to the present coaching takes the person where they are like a coach in football basketball but you take the kid who walks in our or the athlete who walks in and you want them to perform to the best of their ability so regardless of how you look at it if you're a coach you still have to correct of if it's the if it's holding the back in the wrong position if it's lowering it on the hand on the handle if it's raising it and if it's putting the foot farther out yeah all kinds of things where there could be patterns that a coach would need to do to correct of the things that will make a difference for the future now that that the the athletic references that I'm making that's lightweight but it's only meant as a comparison but I just was wondering have you even thought about of the that is a possibility since you have self diagnose yourself is the PK the preacher's kid seen all the whole thing I mean you've you've you've observed a great deal how old are you now but anyway I am I will be forty four at the end of this month serrated or just just just right yeah I am actually on on a path avoided for many years but I'm actually on a path we currently attending Bible college here in Texas and then pursuing after that I'm getting a grand but we'll counseling and then after that pursuing a master's in counseling to be an LPC because my heart is with California what what tends to be the they overlooked or the or the avoided in order to be mental illness or be with ministers because what I have noticed is it's it's a very rough job and you know from personal experience of my father having been a because it's a very rough job because we as a church and for many many years and and you know decades and centuries have put ministers pastors up on a pedestal but as soon as we see a flaw or crack in the armor then they're not the you know the high level perfect priest that we thought they were and then of course you know one thing leads to another they come crashing down with with nobody there to help pick them up you know it whether it's benign but abandoned by their congregation or you know run off into the sunset how to hide but you know there's two in the heart yep yeah it's it's it's really tough when there has been the type of failure whether it's sick immoral failure or but there are two entities that would be good for you to know about if you don't and find out what they do it's sun scape and marble retreat of the vote in in Colorado and the server treat facilities intended for pastors and then go to pull their lives back together again and sometimes it isn't a moral failure it's a person can burn out a pastor can literally from the ground and in fact I believe that Chuck Swindoll Ella is a young pastor ended up going to I believe it was sun scape and you know and he he is one of the most noted of Bible scholars certainly one of the most articulate pastors and who has the program insight for living and so my point is it's wonderful to see that he would endorse and ministry like that because there is such a need and yet very few pastors feel safe there they are yeah deathly deathly afraid of but if I am candid and I'm not if I'm found out and I'm I'm not saying that they're just horrible whatever but there's there's a big fear factor and I'm not saying they all have it I'm just saying the people there I've talked with pastors and pastors wives certainly up over the years and and they acknowledge with and they appreciate if you'd know that this is factual if if you even can empathize and they they deeply appreciate that that we would take care of you here's an ago it was the year is two thousand Billy Graham but on a conference up in Amsterdam and that was the reason I remember it was two thousand this book was because it was called after them two thousand two thousand and got so easy to remember in Amsterdam in Holland the end he up specifically I was asked to come and speak on counseling as the doorway to evangelism now only ten percent could be from America the United States is make the United States of America the other ninety percent had to come from other places throughout the world because he did not want it what he did he wanted to equip those in ministry specifically are who would be throughout the world and I remember Quinn I taught of the other there were however many people are not but at the end this isn't you know people come up afterwards and they have their individual questions the one question I remember the most was from a pastor from Africa and he said I am I M. full time on it like the pedal going down yup totally press down he said I I love the ministry and and not then I'm called the council and he was he was telling me his schedule and then he was asking he said but what do I do about my family and he said I want to be faithful to god for the ministry I said your family is your ministry yeah your family is your ministry a part of your ministry so I said you need to actually schedule time because he would tell me here all this counseling all this work to do and he couldn't give time to his family I said no you and your wife talk about what we do express love to her and wait you literally schedule it as though it's a counseling appointment but it is time to nurture your wife your children and literally have those pockets of time throughout the week and it please leave he smiled it's like oh because he was going to feel guilty but he was neglecting the work of god not understanding that being with his family is also the yeah you it's me your heart listen to me we've gotta talk high blood pressure is Sirius and yours whoa what happened to what we used to be so much more active but lately you've been ignoring me I know you think I'm just gonna keep taking away forever you're wrong you can do so much more to control your high blood pressure doing the minimum isn't doing enough I wonder a lot of pressure and can quit whenever I want but you do know that but I like my job just treat me better check on.

Empty The Pews with Ex-Evangelical Chrissy Stroop

"Hi I'm Christie stroup. I'm a transgender. Ex jellicoe sorry not sorry so you and I first met on twitter. I think around two thousand seventeen shortly after the election. Your Twitter Bio Reids X. Evangelical Writer and Russian History PhD Trans Girl and sometimes snark Easter. I'd like frito briefly. Tell us a little bit about your childhood. Where did you grow up? What was your childhood like so I grew up mostly in north suburb of Indianapolis called. Fisher's was born a small town in Northern Indiana. But my family moved down there When I was around five years old and after kindergarten and with the exception of half of sixth grade I was in Christian schools the entire time of my elementary and secondary education. And when I say Christian school I don't mean a Jesuit Academy or something like that you know the The schools that call themselves Christian schools or Christian Academy's they're usually more like the ones where second lady Karen Pence teaches art where they're very anti. Lgbtq or they mobilized the kids for doing culture wars kind of advocacy and involvements. Illiberal civics if you will so you know. I had a drilled into my head in church and Christian schools from a very early age that liberals are these horrible people who kill babies and we have to stop them and we also have to stop gay people from having rights. Can you talk a little bit? About the history of Evangelical Ism sure the Histories of Evangelical Ism that have been written a lot of them have been written by people who come out of the more like moderate to liberal tradition evangelical right if somewhat sympathetic to it and they want to locate the origins of Evangelical Ism and things like the second grade awakening in the abolitionist movement. And it's true that a kind of evangelical protestantism was a motivating factor for the abolition of slavery in Britain and the United States. But that's not really the ancestor the direct ancestor of what we call evangelical protestantism or what it has mostly become in the United States today. If you WANNA look at what evangelical ISM is in the United States today. And here we're talking mostly about white evangelical. There are some evangelical of color that would also fall into this category but there are also some Christians of color that some people would call evangelical somewhat not someone self defined as evangelical than some would not clear very different and they vote very differently. But you know this right mostly white evangelicalism. It's the descendant of slaveholders Christianity. It's you know the descendant of denominations involved is still all these denominations as well like the Southern Baptist Convention which split off of other Baptists over the issue of slavery because you know these northern Baptist groups decided that they didn't want they didn't think slave owners should be missionaries what became the Southern Baptist Convention. Thought that was very insulting so they broke away so they could have missionary owned slaves. And you know this is also seriously inflected through the Cold War anti communism and in American history that's really inseparable from the civil rights. Movement are far right-wing anticommunist they denounce Martin Luther King as a communist that sort of thing and you know initially people like Jerry Falwell senior. Who of course built the moral majority you know he? He mobilized Christians around opposition to civil rights legislation and integration and today evangelical. Who are still very much in that tradition They try to distance themselves from that history but it is their history and my history too. I mean I grew up that way and they still vote to uphold white supremacism. Even if they won't admit it and there's another key moment there too that I sort of forgot to go over earlier. Which is there. Were these debates in theology in the early twentieth century between the so-called modernists. Who are able to move away from Biblical liberalism and the fundamentalists and this is actually where the term fundamentalists came from. There is a series of pamphlets published starting in Nineteen fifteen called the fundamentals and today's evangelical are also very much the descendants of the fundamentalist side of those early twentieth century debates so evangelical in the United States. It's best to consider the type of fundamentalist Christianity even if some evangelical fundamentalists would define themselves against each other. If we take a step back and look at it through kind of a scholarly framework. It's it's very much a variety of Christian fundamentalism. I wanted to get a better understanding of really what your life was. Like as an evangelical Christian. Can you describe that to me? I mean were you happy yeah. That's a complicated question. And the kind of things that happen to you. When you end up rejecting the ideology when you change politically and religiously from your family and a high demand religious group and a thorough -tarian religious group like this. You know people will accuse you of quote unquote attacking everything we stand for a direct. I heard from multiple relatives of mine. They will accuse you of hating your entire childhood but I did not hate my entire childhood and they don't hate my entire childhood. Now I also definitely didn't get the worst of Evangelical Ism so as we now know there was a big expose. I think over seven hundred cases as far as I recall last year. Were exposed of child sexual abuse and cover ups in the Southern Baptist Convention. You know that didn't happen to me I. I didn't get the worst kind of corporal punishment. The worst guy was being spanked with a wooden spoon. But corporal punishment is highly emphasized and Evangelical Communities Spare the Rod and spoil the child and all that and any fundamentalist group they create these kind of parallel institutions and structures this whole parallel society alongside mainstream American society. So they look at outsiders as quote unquote the world. That's the phrase that they use. The world is scary. You're supposed to kind of go into it. Sometimes and convert people but most of our social life was people we knew through church and Christian school and so I was isolated that way and then they also build up kind of a whole system of as I said parallel institutions and even publishing houses books a Christian music industry this sort of stuff to reinforce a set of alternative facts if you will and to kind of expose and highlight that a couple years ago I coined the Hashtag Christian facts to look at the kinds of alternative facts that children raised in. This environment are indoctrinated with you. Know things like the Loch ness monster might be real. And that's more proof that humans and dinosaurs lived at the same time you know. There's a lot of really really really wild stuff. Some of it has much more well. Maybe just differently problematic implications and that I mean once you start to get into things like purity culture and what I like to call fake sex. Ed they tell you things like you know. Condoms can't stop the AIDS virus. Abortion causes breast cancer and lots of other stuff that's just completely made up

S. troops we could see we could see another move of genocide in that region the concern is that the Kurdish forces who've been protecting Christians and other minorities may now be pushed aside thousands of ISIS prisoners now under Kurdish control could be left unguarded president trump has enjoyed almost unlimited support from evangelical Christian leaders in part because his administration has highlighted the persecution of Christians around the world but by giving an apparent green light to this Turkish invasion trump's reputation has been tainted here's evangelical Pat Robertson speaking Monday on his Christian broadcasting network I want to say this was great Solamente the president of the United States is in danger of losing the mandate of heaven if he permits this to happen that criticism is echoing across the U.

She joins me now Rachel. Good to speak with you again. It's great to be here. Let me start with your reaction to this big vote in Birmingham this week to change the constitution of the southern Baptist convention. What do you think you know, I'm encouraged by the step. It makes it easier to deal with churches that have enabled or covered up sexual abuse that being said. It is a framework. Only a framework only what do you mean? Well, it creates a new committee by which these claims can be vetted. What we don't know yet is, who is going to be on that committee. What questions the committee will be asking as they consider, whether or not churches are in violation of ESPN standards on sexual abuse. And so it really remains to be seen.

He's been interviewing southern Baptist women, and they describe a culture that is resistant to change has that been your experiences. You've interacted with church leaders. You know, the honest truth is, I think there's a quite significant divide. Many of the leaders that I've interacted with our very committed to change. They recognize an understand the damage of sexual abuse. They are broken over, what has taken place that being said, there are certainly a faction within the SBC that remains resistant to change, and that Mr.. Portly does not really understand some of the theological misinterpretations that so often lead church leaders soon, this handle abuse misunderstanding concepts of forgiveness and grace and dealing with abuse in the church, instead of relying on outside experts to handle, both the investigation in the counseling dynamics, what made you want to take the sun. You know there are there are a lot of reasons he had the issue of abuses. Obviously something that is very personal to me. I have I have lived the damage I have seen the damage. In addition to that, I do come from a Christian perspective, faith perspective. And so, in many ways, this is part of my community, and you are most able to make change in the communities that you hold closest to you. You reminded me of something you told me last year I interviewed you from the court as Larry Nassar was being sentenced, and you started talking about your kids. And you told me you want your son to grow into a man who is a protector and defender, and you want your daughters to grow into warriors. Yeah. And I remember being struck by how this fight with something it felt like you needed to do for you, but also for the next generation to fill those steaks, as you work with, with the southern Baptist convention on this, I think, by large, that's the motivation for all the survivor community to protect the next generation to do what we can to ensure that this does not happen to another child, and that if it does the help and support is there for them in ways that it wasn't for us. It was you coming forward that helped open the floodgates in that case with Larry Nassar, do you believe there are other abuse cases in the southern Baptist church that have yet to come to light, absolutely survivors living silence for so long in one of the reasons that they do the main reason they do is because they watch how society talks about abuse, and they watch how our culture treats abuse victims. And that's one of the primary things we need to change. We have to let them know that they're safe when they come forward before they're going to be able to speak up, our cultural and societal response to those survivors, who have spoken up is really going to set the tone for whether or not others, feel free to come forward. And may I ask is someone who's prominently working on those within the church while obviously, wanting to respect the anonymity of people coming forward to women come to you and tell you their stories.

They wanna fast track forest management projects like thinning and prescribed burning that they say are critical to reducing wildfire risks. Environmentalists are calling it a back door move to increase logging, which they say will do little to reduce the risk and bureau's Kirk siegler reports after last fall's deadly campfire. The Trump administration has been trying to speed up forced management projects in the name of preventing these big mega-fires now the forest service is proposing revisions to its national environmental Policy, Act, or Nita regulations for the first time in more than a decade, the change could limit reviews and public input on everything from forest thinning projects infrastructure upgrades to commercial logging. In an interview forest service chief Vicki christianson, said, most of these projects have broad support, and there needlessly stalling out. We do more in Alice's than we'd take more. Time than we made and we slow down important work to protect communities and the resources the proposed rule changes would expand so called categorical. Exclusions, it's a one key sounding term for something that's hugely controversial. That's because these exclusions allow land managers to bypass full blown environmental studies. If they've already shown, there wouldn't be a severe impact to forests John Gale's with the conservation group back country hunters and anglers. He says if applied carefully and narrowly to certain projects the exclusions could help lower the wildfire risk, but he's skeptical because the administration recently rolled back protections for clean water and wildlife habitat. We also don't want to see this become a Trojan horse for unchecked resource extraction. The forest service insists this is not about ramping up commercial logging in public forests, chief Christians pointed out that it took five hundred thirty days just to approve a project. And over grown forests near Lake Tahoe, if the rules are changed she predicts planning time for work like that could be cut in half. Where proposing more efficiency, not short, cutting any of our responsibilities for good environmental assessment and stewardship on the land. Not short cutting in fact, enhancing where we can public involvement federal agencies complain of analysis paralysis, in politicians, have long blasted what they call frivolous lawsuits that stall forest work, but another culprit, slowing down the workout on the land is budget..

Southern Baptist leaders and workers abused hundreds, report says

"Martin. There is a reckoning afoot in the southern Baptist convention. It's the largest Protestant denomination in the US. And it's now in the middle of a sex abuse crisis this week, the Houston chronicle published a comprehensive investigation that counts. More than seven hundred victims of abuse by church leaders of the last two decades. There was a huge diversity both in the abuse type the age of victims. But virtually all of the victims were children, that's Robert down in one of the reporters on that investigation. While there have been high profile an individual sex abuse allegations against southern Baptist leaders in the past the Houston chronicle report lays out just how widespread the abuses. Ben what knowledge exactly leaders had. I don't know. But I think that it's pretty fair to say that this stuff was out there. And there was a group of vocal people who were basically yelling as loud as they could that this was a crisis. To find out. How church leaders are responding to the results of this. Invest investigation. I spoke with Russell Moore he heads the ethics and religious liberty commission of the southern Baptist convention. So how could this kind of abuse go on for so many years in so many different congregations? Well, they're number of reasons, and none of them have good from excusable one of the things that's happened. Is that a church which is supposed to be should be the safest place in the world. For people has often been a place where creditors believed that they can hide. And unfortunately, too, many churches have either had the understanding that that these sorts of things couldn't happen to them because their churches and haven't been vigilant and churches that have taken a wrong headed in view of grace to believe that somehow that means and excusing of. Predatory behavior or of not seeing the role of the civil authorities and recording right away. There are so many horrific reasons behind this happening. So you're suggesting that internally each church, which has a lot of autonomy. Even if they were aware of the allegations, they may have put religious doctrine religious notions of forgiveness over accountability. Well, I think in many cases, there was an understanding of forgiveness and grace and reconciliation doesn't match up with what the bible teaches Jesus never in anyplace excuses, the harming of vulnerable people and children and others. And so this is a human crisis. And it's also a theological crisis the Houston chronicle as part of their report says church officials did know were encouraged to make reforms and we're not interested in doing. So do you know why often in church autonomy has been used as an excuse for a lack of accountability? Our polity does make this harder. Because each jerk is independent and church doesn't answer to Bishop arena above us. But that doesn't mean that there aren't. Things that can and should and must be on. And so that that means that the hard work has to be done to see how that can happen not to Easter autonomy as an excuse. So what are some practical steps that churches, and the broader southern Baptist convention can take in this moment. It's one thing to say this is a sin. This is an outrage. How do you make sure it doesn't happen again? Well, there are a number of steps. One of those institute with training churches to know, how to respond when there is a case or a suspicion of case that has to do with also training ministers at the very end of their ministries working with seminaries and universities to do that. And then there has to be a way to connect churches to one another to know win. There has been an incident or an allegation of abuse happening at another church to prevent someone from simply moving from one church to the other undercover of darkness the Houston. Chronicle says in its report that at least one. One accused sex abuse offender remains to this day in his church position. Do you think that should be the case? Absolutely not. I think that in every case someone who is a a sex offender should not only be removed from any ministry leadership and disciplined by local congregation about should also be handed over to the civil authorities. Does that mean you will follow up on the Houston Chronicle's reporting and try to pass that message down to the to the local church? Yes, if I mean, this is alcohol the congregation directly. Do you see parallels to what's happening within the southern Baptist convention and the sex abuse crisis in the Catholic church? Yes, I do because both are a crisis of credibility. Someone should know that we may step into a church that they're in a place that is going to be safe in a place that is going to be advocating that the most strongly for those who are the most vulnerable. And so they're very much is a parallel there. What I hope is that what happens out of that is genuine reform that will ensure that the next generation of people don't have to face these questions

"The others were baptist churches associated with the moody bible institute or the southern baptist convention and a lot of them were heavily influenced by what was known as the scofield study bible and the notes in the scofield study bible when it came to like revelation and daniel in those in those teachings or those scriptures all were done from pre millennial dispensational teaching and dispensational means god is divided history into dispensations as of seven of american i'm asking i gotta get the home school kid knows more about this than me yes they're seven of them right okay they're seven dispensations and that's what we mean all right and so this this would be the last of god's dispensations before the end of days okay now i think i'm right about this conservative reformed theology people actually have a view similar to catholics that god is divided history by covenants right the dominic covenant the noah covenant the the the mosaic covenant the new covenant through christ who i have that right about that yeah and there's some overlap between what you're talking about with covenants and this station yes but the covenants don't necessarily cover dental theology does not necessarily mean that there is a deflate there is a defined endpoint of history that we can see the signs that it's happening now dispensationalist is literally like a clock okay a covenant is is god defining his nature via the how he conducts his affairs directly with humanity dispensationalist are literally looking at the world that it's a clock like a game all right and they would look at this dispensation is the two minute warning of the games that fair i'm trying to be as fair on these viewpoints as i possibly can because also is a lot of people in our audience that might be mormon might be agnostic might be jewish and don't necessarily take for granted or know a lot of the terminology we're talking about so i'm trying to be as fair in his general about these things getting in the weeds as possible because i think you need to have a baseline knowledge of what we're about to discuss next before we can go there i think it's fair good.

"The southern baptist convention is a denomination that was explicitly founded to support slavery it split off from other baptist denominations because the leaders of the nascent movement wanted to be able to hold slaves and the denomination has been wrestling with that history ever since the civil war i they have made apologies for their role in upholding notions of racial supremacy especially during the jim crow period and this is where theories like the curse of hand come into play i this is an interpretation of the bible which says that african americans are darkskinned people are inferior to whiteskinned people was used for used as justification for slaveholding and also used as justification for segregation this is now been repudiated by what mackic was trying to do with his resolution was get the southern baptist convention to apologize for that theory had on and in the end does the revolution they came up with those of come does come in the form of an apology it's not exactly an apology but it is a straightforward acknowledgement of the southern baptist convention history and also the progress that is trying to make for the future it doesn't for example mentioned the curse of ham by name which is something that mechanic wished at had done out by it does speak in very frank terms about the need for racial justice and reconciliation among southern baptists the resolution tried to be more hopeful in the revised version had talked about the resolution for example condemning the confederate flag that happened in 2016 or a previous our resolution in 2015 that had called for racial reconciliation ultimately this resolution is one step in a long tradition drain that the southern baptist convention has had in trying to take on racism and issues of racial division immigration rigs about religion for the atlantic magazine thanks obama thank you.

"No condemning the all right and white nationalism it seems like a no brainer why was this resolution held up but first the resolutions committee thought that the proposal was not written in quite the right way and so they decided not to report it out mickovic even tried to get reconsideration he made a motion on the floor to get a twothirds vote to have more time allotted for his resolution to be considered but ultimately that failed as well and this started a total tailspin of chaos when it looked like the southern baptist convention had declined consider this resolution condemning the outright how is it resolved in the end they have come out against them at a late night meeting they gathered and finally decided to suspend the rules to make an exception which is generally the these conventions are very procedurally driven they broke those rules though in order to be able to the next day reconsider a newly drafted proposal which merritt a lot of mechanics language and on wednesday afternoon they in fact voted almost unanimously in favour of this condemnation of the all right now in the end was seen as kind of a procedural do world tired kind of them oversight or does the tap into kind of raw nerves within southern baptists in terms of ambivalence about built right certainly the leaders of the convention tried to explain this as mostly at procedural mishap or something that had been caused by confusion uh but a number of people pointed out that this reveals the blind spots that can sometimes happen within southern baptists life and particularly within its leadership ranks when there are people of diverse backgrounds who are making decisions and there was a lot of emotion this really revealed fracture lines within the southern baptist convention over racial divisions that are going to continue beyond any resolution i mean the southern baptists have a kind of tough history regarding slavery tells about the specifically the concept of the curse of ham.
