Karen Prior Says Discernment Hurts Her Worse than Being Hit By a Bus
Never underestimate the desire of a leftist to engage in victimology. If they are not the victim of an actual crime or act of aggression, they will go so far as to make up their grievances (like Jussie Smollett or Kyle J. Howard) or even lament their own ability to look both ways before crossing the street.
Drawing from her accident, caused by stepping foot in front of a bus, Karen Swallow Prior said on Twitter that what hurts even worse are discernment ministries documenting her leftist agenda and the harm it has caused her reputation.
Karen Swallow Prior ought to feel hurt and saddened by the work that exposes her as a liar and a twister of Scripture. We agree.
Although Prior characterizes polemics reporting as “trolling, lies, and misrepresentations,” all reporting has thus far been accurate and has served to warn evangelicals of her subversive agenda as a political change-agent in evangelical institutions.
For a summary of concerns regarding this dangerous woman, includes the first post written about her, Gay Affirming Research Fellow at ERLC, Shocking Liberalism, attended pro-LGBTQ fundraisers, supported pro-LGBTQ ad campaigns, and backpedaled and soft-handed abortion while pretending to have been a pro-life advocate (various claims about her past activism cannot be substantiated), radical animal rights activists saw Prior as an “ally and resource contributor” to “invade right-wing evangelical institutions with an animal-first agenda” as far back as 2007, she gave glowing accolades of a book that argues against the pro-life position, said in Christianity Today that abortion is not murder and defended abortionists from the accusation of being “murderers,” said that calling abortion murder is unchristlike, is on record saying that animal cruelty (in this case, dog-fighting) bothers her more than abortion ,is glib about dining with the director of Planned Parenthood, and many ministries and sites have noted Prior’s compromise on abortion.
Additionally, Dr. Prior seems intent on corrupting young people, praising the “It Gets Better Campaign,” which is a pro-LGBT campaign targeted at youth and children and produced videos from Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton encouraging kids in their homosexuality. Dr. Prior praised Common Core curriculum, calling it Good News (I kid you not). Prior endorsed the use of gay porn propaganda in high schools and colleges. She believes that pets go to Heaven because when you name them it gives them personhood. Prior says she wants an end to modern animal husbandry and factory farms “even if the economy of the country be damned.”
Dr. Prior was thrilled when Bernie Sanders came to Liberty University. When the late Rachel Held Evans was appointed to Obama’s faith advisory council, Prior was giddy with excitement and enthusiastically applauded her. Prior has given affirming words towards the anti-cop hate group, Black Lives Matter. Prior ridiculed Mike Pence for following the Billy Graham Rule. Prior promotes and supports illegal immigration. Prior says that poor people in bad neighborhoods shouldn’t have firearms.
As a feminist (that’s a term she uses to describe herself), Prior has launched a ministry program with other progressive-liberal women to promote what they call “hospitable orthodoxy.”
We hope and pray that discernment ministries metaphorically hit Dr. Prior like a bus. We pray it takes her off her feet and places her on her knees in repentance.
This verse applies to her…
“Now no chastening for the present seemeth to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yieldeth the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them which are exercised thereby” (Hebrews 12:11)
It has to be a painful thing for Prior to hear that people consider her to be a liar and almost surely not even regenerate.
However, we would also cite Romans 12 in regards to her…
14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. 15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep. 16 Be of the same mind one toward another. Mind not high things, but condescend to men of low estate. Be not wise in your own conceits. 17 Recompense to no man evil for evil. Provide things honest in the sight of all men. 18 If it be possible, as much as lieth in you, live peaceably with all men. 19 Dearly beloved, avenge not yourselves, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I will repay, saith the Lord. 20 Therefore if thine enemy hunger, feed him; if he thirst, give him drink: for in so doing thou shalt heap coals of fire on his head. 21 Be not overcome of evil, but overcome evil with good.
We pray that the wicked will understand our desire that all the harm we do to their feelings and reputation will bring them to repentance and eternal joy, not to suffering.
