As the Southern Baptist Convention is hemorrhaging members in dramatic decline and suffering from giant missions shortfalls, more than four million dollars is dedicated annually to the socially-progressive entity, the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), run by former Democratic staffer, Russell Moore. For that four million dollars, the SBC has received in return a Jim Wallis-style activism from Moore, advocating for leftist causes from Open-Border Amnesty funded by George Soros, constant hen-pecking at the current Commander-in-Chief, animal rights activism, and most recently, Affirmative Action. As the SBC hurts for dollars, Russell Moore has combined efforts with The Gospel Coalition (the two share contributors and board members – Russell Moore and Joe Carter serve both organizations) to raise more than 1.5 million dollars in support for MLK50 scholarships for minority students in the name and honor of Martin Luther King, Jr.
Gathering with more than 4 thousand in attendance, The Gospel Coalition and the ERLC is now hosting MLK50, an event centering on themes of “white guilt,” institutionalized racism, and the celebration of Martin Luther King, Jr., who was an unrepentant sex-trafficking bi-sexual and adulterer who denied the Virgin Birth and Resurrection of Christ. These facts about Martin Luther King Junior have most irrefutably been revealed in the newly released JFK Files, but have been largely known and substantiated by countless testimonies since King was alive. This hasn’t stopped MLK50 speakers from venerating King, with conference speaker Charlie Dates saying that King was the “greatest American ever to have lived.” The Elephant in the Room – chiefly, the acknowledgement that King was neither Christian by Confession nor by behavior – has not been mentioned, even implicitly. Some, like Voddie Baucham in this tweet years ago, have been so bold as to acknowledge what the progressives at MLK50 are afraid to mention.
Nonetheless, Russell Moore has led the charge in the name of Southern Baptists to manufacture history, venerate the Reprobate, and be awarded prizes in public perception for epic levels of political correctness. Anyone watching the MLK50 Conference who is vaguely aware of political theory can see that the event has been dripping with Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality, and Cultural Marxism. In fact, Darrell Harrison – a member of a Reformed Baptist congregation in Georgia and the first black person ordained to ministry in the 200 year history of the First Baptist Church of Covington (his previous church) – had the following to say:
Of course, Harrison is right. There’s very little discernible difference between the heart and meat of the messages at MLK50 from those of the alt-left Cultural Marxists who seek to sow racial discord and ethnic disharmony for the goal of leftist political victories. And yet, Moore and his cohorts at The Gospel Coalition have been tirelessly speaking away in the language of Jim Wallis and other progressives. You can watch the clip below, where Russell Moore says that we should “crucify our political alliances,” referring to their relationships with conservative politicians.
We never heard Russell Moore request we throw away our political alliances when he was meeting with President Barack Obama, who Moore hardly – if ever – criticized.
So then, for the Southern Baptist four-million (per year) investment in the ERLC, it has received in exchange a black-listing from the Trump Administration, stripping it of any and all influence in Washington among the Executive Branch of government. They have also funded this atrocious conference which has raised 1.5 million dollars (in kind donations, ostensibly) for minorities. Under-privileged white people need not apply…
According to the ERLC, this money has been raised for the “MLK50 Dream Forward Scholarship Initiative,” that will allow – quote – “Christian colleges and seminaries to invest in the educational future of minority students.”
Educational Institutions agreeing to the race-based scholarships include:
- Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, Wake Forest, N.C.

- Missouri Baptist University, St. Louis, Mo.
- Hannibal-Lagrange University, Hannibal, Mo.
- Gordon College, Wenham, Mass.
- Boyce College, Louisville, Ky.

Thanks to the revisionist history of Russell Moore, these college students will be judged not by the content of their character, but by the color of their skin.
Let's STOP the Modern Day Downgrade
“Daily, the work at Pulpit & Pen is filling the void of places where 100 men once stood and that is not an exaggeration. Day in and day out, they tirelessly vet offerings and influence of ministries around the world that they may guard the little sheep from the least to the most damning of errors. This is hard, unappreciative and alienating toil... JD Hall and his contributors such as Seth Dunn, are almost single-handedly leading the way in a rescue attempt of conservative Evangelicalism and especially the Southern Baptist Convention.” -Alex A. Guggenheim
