ERLC / Gospel Coalition Leader Praises Romney for Voting to Convict Trump
Ray Ortulund is a prominent figure at The Gospel Coalition, the left-of-center political organization that masquerades as a gospel ministry. Led by Marxist Tim Keller, The Gospel Coalition’s goal is to persuade evangelicals to replace the gospel with social justice. Ortlund also writes at the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC), the Southern Baptist entity headed up by Democrat Russell Moore.
Now, Ortlund has come out praising Mormon Mitt Romney, for voting to convict Donald Trump of impeachable offenses in the U.S. Senate. Romney invoked his religion as a reason to convict Trump, although his constituents in Utah were resoundingly against impeachment.
Citing Mormonism, Romney said, “I am profoundly religious. My faith is at the heart of who I am. I take an oath before God as enormously consequential.”
Romney then explained that his faith required him to be the sole Republican to vote with the Democrats to affirm the U.S. House impeachment of Donald Trump in the first time a president has been impeached without an accusation of breaking the law.
Ortlund is a council member on The Gospel Coalition as well as a contributor. He is one of many leftists to serve on the board, with hardly a conservative Christian serving alongside them. Other council members include black nationalist Thabiti Anyabwile (Ron Burns), Russell Moore, Danny Akin, and H.B. Charles.
Ortlund has come out in support of homosexual priest Sam Allberry, militant butch lesbian Jackie Hill Perry, and Gospel Coalition lesbians Rebecca McLaughlin and Rachel Gilson. There is hardly a social issue on which Ortlund doesn’t side with the left.
