Another New York Times piece
by Faith and Values Correspondent Elizabeth Dias featured recent interviews with five Texas Evangelical moms troubled by Christians’ past voting loyalties. Dias says, “All are longtime Republican voters, solely because they oppose abortion rights. Only one of them broke ranks to vote for Hillary in 2016. But this November, they have all decided to vote for Mr. O’Rourke.” While written as a random sampling of evangelical Texas Women reflecting a “trend,“ the NYT piece proves less than honest.
Radio host Janet Mefferd researched and found that at least three of the “Beto Moms” are tied to Village Church in Flower Mound, Texas where pastor Matt Chandler preaches for social justice / against white privilege and is a leader in both Keller’s TGC and Moore’s ERLC. Also revealed by Mefferd’s research is that these women play activist roles in refugee resettlement “ministries”- one even received $20,000 in one year from Village Church.
Today we see the same funding agenda spilling over and trickling down through the Conservative Christian community through ministries like World Relief, Evangelical Immigration Table (of which Moore is a member) as well as denominational mission objectives. Is this funding inspiring these Evangelicals’ progressive politics? Dias points to the obvious hopeful payoff. “To democrats nationwide who have largely written off white evangelical voters, it also sends a signal -not just for midterms but also for the 2020 presidential campaign …”
The face of conservative Christian political engagement is changing rapidly by covert and overt forces from within. The steady creep of diluted doctrine and progressive social justice has weakened a generation of Christians’ resolve and conviction. Liberal mainstream media now have partners deep within the Evangelical leadership moving the church to embrace leftist policy and political candidates. The loss of the evangelical base, once complete, will prove catastrophic to the Conservative movement in America as well as to personal and religious freedom. A rapid and sustained movement must be organized to counter this subversive revolution against Christian Conservatism.
