Liberty University President Jerry Falwell questions why Russell Moore is talking about immigration; Falwell calls Moore a ‘bureaucrat.’
Conservative Southern Baptists tired of Russell Moore’s progressive push on immigration lashed out at him on Twitter. Russell Moore is the Southern Baptist leader of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission. He’s lied about Jesus by calling our Savior a “so-called” illegal immigrant. Also, he insulted messengers to the Southern Baptist Convention by not answering important theological questions during ERLC question time at the recent Annual Meeting in Birmingham. Moore took the opportunity of the border crisis to attack conditions for migrant children detained at the border. Liberty University President Jerry Falwell, Jr. responded by questioning Dr. Moore’s credentials to criticize Falwell pointed out Dr. Moore is simply a bureaucrat.
Falwell tweeted, “Who are you @drmoore? Have you ever made a payroll? Have you ever built an organization of any type from scratch? What gives you authority to speak on any issue? I’m being serious. You’re nothing but an employee- a bureaucrat.”
Falwell’s tweet was a response to this tweet from Moore, “The reports of the conditions for migrant children at the border should shock all of our consciences. Those created in the image of God should be treated with dignity and compassion, especially those seeking refuge from violence back home. We can do better than this.”
Russell Moore is paid by Southern Baptists and leads the ERLC—the public policy arm of the Southern Baptist Convention. Moore sits on the George Soros-funded evangelical immigration table.
Falwell has criticized Russell Moore multiple times on Twitter over the last month. Recently, Falwell named Russell Moore part of the Southern Baptist Deep State that was working against the interests of conservative, bible-believing Southern Baptists.
The Southern Baptist Convention is in a serious drift toward progressive politics, and Falwell along with other evangelicals want to stop it.
