Baptist pastor who voted for Hillary Clinton attacks Baptists for ‘suppression of women’

A prominent Southern Baptist pastor attacked the Patriarchy, err the biblical practice of men preaching, in a fiery tweet likening the oppression of African Americans by whites to the suppression of women in Southern Baptist churches today. The explosive charge against biblically-minded Southern Baptist leaders was made Sunday evening.

“The same spirit that drove the oppression of African Americans also, drove and drives the suppression of women exercising their full complement of spiritual gifts beyond biblical parameters. The Bible was & is being used & abused to support racism & the suppression of women gifts,” tweeted Dwight McKissic.

McKissic voted for Hillary Clinton—the pro-abortion and anti-Christian candidate in the 2016 election. McKissic also played the race card in defending progressive Southern Baptist Ethics and Religious Liberty head Russell Moore. As one political commentator and professor noted at the time, McKissic “racialized” the defense of Dr. Moore.

McKissic’s tweet was in response to a Bucknell University professor’s tweet pointing out the president of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood cited a Southern Baptist Greek scholar who was the son of a slaveowner and white supremacist.

The professor tweeted, “@DennyBurk, prez of @CBMWorg, just shared a short criticism of women preaching by early 20th c. Southern Baptist A. T. Robertson. Burk calls Robertson “one of the greatest scholars of New Testament Greek” ever. But Robertson was also a white supremacist.” You can check out the entire thread for more information on A.T. Robertson.

The article tweeted by Denny Burk that drew criticism from the Bucknell professor is available here.

This is the latest attack on Southern Baptist leaders over the issue of women preaching. Over the last two months, the Southern Baptist Convention was roiled over the preaching of Beth Moore and other odd statements made as Beth Moore appeared to endorse women preaching and attacked conservatives in the Southern Baptist Convention for the “sin” involved in the Conservative Resurgence—the revival of the SBC to conservative, biblical foundations.

There is a growing Intersectional front uniting many Woke elements of the Southern Baptist Convention with egalitarians–those who favor women preachers.

So, what do you think? Do you think the Southern Baptist commitment to men preaching is the suppression of women? Do you think how Southern Baptist churches treat women is equivalent to how black Americans were treated in the past?

    Genesis 3:15-16 “And I will cause hostility between you and the woman, and between your offspring and her offspring. He will strike your head, and you will strike his heel.” Then he said to the woman, “I will sharpen the pain of your pregnancy, and in pain you will give birth. And you will desire to control your husband, but he will rule over you.”

    1 Timothy 2:12 “But I do not allow a woman to teach or exercise authority over a man, but to remain quiet.”

    1 Peter 3:7 “Likewise, husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way, showing honor to the woman as the weaker vessel, since they are heirs with you of the grace of life, so that your prayers may not be hindered.”

    1 Timothy 2:13-14 “For it was Adam who was first created, and then Eve. And it was not Adam who was deceived, but the woman being deceived, fell into transgression.”

    2 Corinthians 11:3 “But I am afraid that, as the serpent deceived Eve by his craftiness, your minds will be led astray from the simplicity and purity of devotion to Christ.”

    Romans 5:12 “Therefore, just as sin entered the world through one man, and death through sin, and in this way death came to all people, because all sinned.”

    Genesis 2:18 “Then the LORD God said, “It is not good for the man to be alone; I will make him a helper suitable for him.”

    1 Timothy 2:15 “But women will be saved through childbearing–if they continue in faith, love and holiness with propriety.”

    Proverbs 31:28 “Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her.”

    Titus 2:3-5 “Older women likewise are to be reverent in their behavior, not malicious gossips nor enslaved to much wine, teaching what is good, so that they may encourage the young women to love their husbands, to love their children, to be sensible, pure, workers at home, kind, being subject to their own husbands, so that the word of God will not be dishonored.”

    1 Timothy 3:8 “Deacons likewise must be men of dignity, not double-tongued, or addicted to much wine or fond of sordid gain.”

    Titus 1:6 “An elder must be blameless, faithful to his wife, a man whose children believe and are not open to the charge of being wild and disobedient.”

    Isaiah 3:12 “My people—infants are their oppressors, and women rule over them. O my people, your guides mislead you and they have swallowed up the course of your paths.”

    Ephesians 5:23-25 “For the husband is the head of the wife as Christ is the head of the church, his body, of which he is the Savior. 24 Now as the church submits to Christ, so also wives should submit to their husbands in everything. 25 Husbands, love your wives, just as Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her.”

    It is plain and simple. Men and women have different roles.

    If this pastor does not like the Southern Baptist Church stance on this issue then he should move on to another denomination that will fit his tickling ear.
