“Steven Harris serves as a Policy Director, with a particular focus on the U.S. Senate. In this role, he works with government leaders in the legislative and executive branches to advocate for the ERLC’s position on important issues, while also analyzing legislation and producing content for ERLC outlets. He holds a B.S. in Religion from Vanderbilt University, an M.Div. from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, an M.A. in Religion from Yale University, and is currently a PhD student in the Study of Religion at Harvard University. Steven lives in the D.C. metro area with his bride, Sunni, and son, Jude.”For some reason, the ERLC and the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary are attracting and hiring liberal, Democrat Ivy-Leaguers. Seriously, does anything about Vanderbilt, Yale, and Harvard scream “conservative Bible-believing Baptist” to you? Harris did, of course, come recommended from Ron Burns (the SBC pastor who was born in North Carolina and changed his name to Thabiti Anyabwile when he converted to Islam and then kept it that way after he converted to Christianity). “Anyabwile” said of Harris:
“I’m thrilled about this appointment. Steven Harris combines a keen mind with a generous heart. A dedicated student of our changing cultural times, Steven is also an ardent defender of Christian truth. He’s the kind of guy you long for when you need a son of Issachar to help lead God’s people.”Ron Burns’ “ardent defender of Christian truth” just joined with Jim Wallis to endorse the party of gay-marriage and abortion. At least he left the ERLC first. Open your eyes. Close your wallet. These are the words Democrats are using to solicit the evangelical vote at their website:
“Join Sojourners founder Rev. Jim Wallis, Lisa Sharon Harper of Freedom Road LLC, author and social worker Jerushah Duford (granddaughter of Billy Graham), former Ambassador to the UN World Food Programme Tony Hall, Evangelicals for Social Action founder Dr. Ron Sider, Asian American Christian Collaborative Vice President Michelle Ami Reyes, former Bread for the World CEO David Beckmann, Dr. Jim Ball, former CNCS Board Member Hyepin Im, former Southern Baptist Convention ERLC staffer Steven Harris, and more for this special event! RSVP now and we’ll send the Zoom link closer to the date. “They are using Harris’ position with the ERLC to give them Christian credibility. I get that Christians can disagree on economic policy, and big government (Democrats) vs. small government (Republicans) but we really can’t disagree on abortion (baby-murder). The Democratic Party hates God. Harris and Burns recommend people vote for them. If you are a Southern Baptist then you have paid this man to lobby the Senate in God’s name…and you deserve him. You were warned about the direction of the ERLC years ago. You deserve him and you deserve the company man SBC pastor at your local church, who would rather die before he quit buying prestige in the denomination with your Cooperative Program money. I’m tempted to recommend a fix for you, such as eliminating the type of SBC entity which attracts people like Harris (for example, the ERLC and the Kingdom Diversity Department of SEBTS), but I’ll just say this. Enjoy your Democrat lobbyists Southern Baptists. Don’t say I didn’t warn you. They certainly are enjoying your money. *Please note that the preceding is my personal opinion.
