Tim Keller Helps the New Yorker Siphon Off Support From Republicans
FROM DR GAGNON
Here is yet another attempt at calling those who preferred Trump to Clinton and Moore to Jones “hypocrites” (albeit a more sophisticated attempt than most). Keller accuses such persons of compromising their faith: “People who once called themselves the ‘Moral Majority’ are now seemingly willing to vote for anyone, however immoral, who supports their political positions.” It’s as good as calling us “hypocrites,” only he just takes longer to say it.
Support for Moore was not support for “anyone, however immoral.” Keller calls MLK “the greatest champion of justice in our era” (in his book *Reason for God,* 64-65) yet it is widely acknowledged that MLK was a sexually immoral man (e.g., according to closest friend Ralph Abernathy he had sex with three women at different times on the final night of his life).
Moore at least has been in a faithful marriage to one woman for 33 years and, so far as we know, has never had sexual intercourse with another woman. We simply can’t know, forty years later, whether the allegations about Moore’s sexual misconduct were true. Numerous women who know Moore much better than his critics (including those who have known him since childhood and some ex-girlfriends) speak glowingly about his respectful and gentle treatment of women. So too do his military buddies from Vietnam days, prior to the alleged incidents of sexual misconduct, who report him to have been a person of high moral character.
The New Yorker is more than happy to use Tim Keller for their political purposes because they strongly support abortion, “gay marriage,” and men in women’s bathrooms (and other transgender concerns). They also support the attenuation of religious and civil liberties for those who resist the “LGBT” and abortion agendas. Then, too, they support the appointment of judges who legislate their left-wing ideology from the bench rather than restrict themselves to interpreting the Constitution, thereby enslaving generations to come.
Does Rev. Keller have any objection to being used in this way, just as Russell Moore was used by the Washington Post when Moore ranted against anyone who intended to vote for Trump as a means to avoiding a much worse choice?
