CPAC Panel: America Threatened By Spread of 'Social Justice' In Evangelical Churches

Politician and polemicist Alan Keyes was among the speakers at a CPAC panel titled “Stopping the Progressive Drift of Evangelical Voters,” which was sponsored by the group Sovereign Nations. A Sovereign Nations flyer promoting the CPAC event described the group as “Preparing Gladiators for the Arena of Ideas.”

The most glaring thing missing from the presentations, given the session’s title, was any data or other evidence of a progressive shift among evangelical voters, particularly white evangelicals, who voted overwhelmingly for Donald Trump and who remain his most loyal supporters. What concerned the speakers is the fact that some prominent evangelical leaders are urging the church to take on issues like systemic racism, or to view injustice through a lens of “intersectionality,” which these men see as the tools of anti-Christian postmodernists out to deconstruct the evangelical church as a means of furthering their deconstruction of American society.

Speakers included Sovereign Nations’ Founder Michael O’Fallon as well as Tom Ascol and Josh Buice (pronounced Bice), two pastors who are allied with Sovereign Nations and its promotion of the idea that “social justice” as a concept is poisoning evangelical churches. Ascol and Buice both spoke at Sovereign Nations’ January 2019 conference, “Social Justice & The Gospel: The God-breathed Hierarchy and the Postmodern Crisis within the Church.”

Next up was Josh Buice, who echoed the warning that “many evangelicals are replacing Christianity with this new religion, this new social justice type of movement.” Buice argues that systemic racism is not a problem in U.S. culture today, much less in the evangelical church. Buice said recently on his twitter feed that “in evangelical circles we’ve replaced theology with victimology. #Social Justice.”

In his CPAC speech, Keyes denounced “identity politics” for encouraging people to view themselves as victims rather than in terms of the courage and strength that people like his parents had to overcome whatever brutality they faced. He warned that “Marxist ideology” would only lead to an effort at “mutual annihilation” between “a bunch of people on one side with broken hearts and a bunch of people on the other side with broken heads.”

Oh the nightmares of treating someone the way Jesus would want them to be treated!

1. Alan Keyes? lol, no

I sometimes wonder what reality these people live in, because it's not this one.

2. You'd think the media would be all over this

More judgment and less mercy is short, pithy, and sure to bring a smile to Trumpsters.

3. There is no other way to say it- Evangelicals are evil people

They practice a completely fake religion to justify their politics of hate and intolerance and racism

4. They're a cult, and a very dangerous one at that.
