In an epic move sure to enrage eco-religionists and climate change alarmists, President Donald Trump is skipping the United Nations Climate Summit on September 30 and is instead throwing a competing event – a “Religious Freedom Summit” – at the very same U.N. building.
As American evangelicals like Russell Moore, Thomas Kidd, Beth Moore, and woke evangelicals associated with the Southern Baptist Convention and The Gospel Coalition do everything possible to discourage voters from supporting Donald Trump, Trump is proving himself more and more supportive of evangelicals.
While the heads of more than 60 nations gather to discuss the imaginary threat of human-caused “climate change,” and postulate different theories for the best ways to tilt at windmills (which always include global regulations and economy-stifling “solutions”), Trump believes that ending the real problem of religious persecution is more important.
White House press secretary, Stephanie Grisham, told the press, “The President is working to broaden international support for ongoing efforts to protect religious freedom in the wake of increasing persecution of people on the basis of their beliefs and a growing number of attacks on and destruction of houses of worship by state and non-state actors.”
The conference room, much smaller than that for the Chicken Littleseque Climate Summit, will hold approximately 250 and will be attended by national and international religious leaders who are committed to ending religion-based persecution.
Ironically, some of the states most interested in finding “climate solutions” that hurt First World economies are the worst offenders when it comes to religious human rights.
The event, entitled, Global Call to Protect Religious Freedom, will call on the international community to take concrete steps to prevent attacks against people on the basis of their religion or beliefs and to ensure the sanctity of houses of worship and all public spaces for all faiths,” according to its statement.
David Waskow, director of the International Climate Initiative at the World Resources Institute complained and threatened, “Not participating and yet showing up at the building is throwing down a gauntlet.”
Meanwhile, SBC and evangelical elitists, like Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS) president, Danny Akin, continue to insist that whether you vote Democrat or Republican really isn’t that important.
SEBTS and Danny Akin, which send foreign missionaries out into the field, should be aware that according to Open Doors, more than 245 million Christians live in places where they are persecuted for their faith.
It appears that only one party, and in particular one 2020 presidential candidate, cares about that.
