Wouldn’t you think that the first president of the United States appearing at the anti-abortion “March for Life” would make someone at the Southern Baptist Convention’s Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) happy? It’s not so for Thomas Kidd, an appointee and prominent research fellow appointed to the ERLC. Lead Russell Moore, a former Democratic staffer, there is a strong anti-conservative bias at the convention’s lobbying arm.
Last week, Kidd claimed that evangelicals who support Donald Trump are anti-immigrant and racist. Last Fall, Kidd went out of his way to tell people it was okay to vote for pro-abortion proponents. And now, Kidd says he wishes Trump did not oppose abortion.
Kidd says it’s not good for the President of the United States to be associated with the pro-life movement. His argument seems to be that the pro-life movement will be hurt if the most powerful man in the world supports it.
Whose side is the ERLC really on? There are Democrat foxes in the Southern Baptist henhouse.
