Dwight McKissic attacks Founders documentary exposing Identity Politics just like he racialized the conservative opposition to Russell Moore.

Notice the Resolution 9 defenders are silent on the Dr. Lopez situation.

The Southern Baptist Convention approved the use of the “analytical tools” of Identity Politics at its Annual Meeting last summer. So, buckle up as you’ll see more and more playing the race card against conservatives. And sure enough, one of the foremost advocates of racial grievances attacked the new Founders’ Ministries documentary on, you guessed, racial grounds. He even hinted at there being consequences if the SBC moves toward the conservative position.

This is the sad state of the Southern Baptist Convention.

And Dwight McKissic just played the race card in a series of tweets.

He started by hyperventilating that Southern Baptists are trying to marginalize women and blacks by wanting to reject Identity Politics.

“If resolution 9 is rescinded, it would be a rebuke to the professors cited in the film, who articulated truth regarding race. The implications of rejecting these professors who were primarily Black are HUGE. SBC continues debating their original sins, marginalizing wmn & Blacks.”

You might remember that even Al Mohler said Resolution 9 was flawed and that Identity Politics was dangerous. Specifically, Mohler said:

“The main consequence of critical race theory and intersectionality is identity politics, and identity politics can only rightly be described, as antithetical to the gospel of Jesus Christ. We have to see identity politics as disastrous for the culture and nothing less than devastating for the church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

But, yeah, any attack on Resolution 9 is racist and dismissive of minorities. That’s the problem when those who play the race card are platformed in the Southern Baptist Convention.

McKissic didn’t stop there.

He tweeted, “Founders Ministry sided with the minority faction that excluded the Black pastor from the lead pastor position at FBC Naples, based on racially tinged allegations. Now, they want to force uniformity of thought regarding race on the SBC & lead the SBC in repudiating 2 AA scholars.”

Also, “Not just two AA scholars are being targeted, but three…Dr Curtis Woods. Let this sink in. The Founders Ministry wants 3 AA scholars fired from their teaching positions at SBC seminaries, because they would dare speak the truth about race. Shortsighted thinking. Tone deaf.”

And, “If Dr Strickland & Dr Willams  are considered doctrinally out of bounds for the SBC, then…the SBC does not have enough room for the vast majority of Black Baptists. Doubtful you’ll find one prominent SBC AA pastor who would disagree with their recorded statements.”

And, he has to threaten dire consequences for the SBC if it fails to cave to his racialist rhetoric.

“Many of us would end up with only a perfunctory relationship with the SBC if these 3 scholars—trained at SBC seminaries & current professors —are continuously subjected to false characterizations of their views as CRT. The truths they espouse are self evident. Labels unjustified!”

This isn’t the first time McKissic racialized an SBC problem. He trotted out racial grievances to defend conservative critiques of ERLC head Russell Moore. Moore, a Never Trumper and former Democratic congressional staffer, naturally finds a defender in McKissic—a pastor who voted for abortion supporting Hillary Clinton over Trump and admits to voting against Mitt Romney.

In response to a McKissic blog post in favor of Russell Moore, Dr Carol M. Swain wrote, “The concerns about Dr. Moore go beyond his criticisms of Donald Trump. I believe they are related his purported ties to Soros-funded groups and his failure to disclose his party affiliation in his attacks against candidate Trump. No one should be surprised that black leaders would racialize the investigation. It is not unreasonable to expect the head of an ethics commission to set a high standard for transparency. #Baptist #Russellmoore.”

But, this time the racial rhetoric is even worse. McKissic says any criticism of Resolution 9 and its authors will divide the SBC.

He tweeted, “This movie is an attack on Beth Moore & soft complementarianism. It’s an attack on a diverse & highly competent resolutions committee. This movie is an attack on SBC professors who wld dismantle & openly oppose White Supremacy & residual power structures. It will divide the SBC.”


Where are all these advocates of Resolution 9 standing up for the diverse group of professors fired by the new administration of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (SWBTS)? The administration fired about 26 professors with at least 13 being minorities and women. The seminary then hired at least 13 white men all with ties to Southern Baptist Theological Seminary (SBTS).

Their silence on the sad case of Dr. Robert Lopez shows you what is really going on here—these are political liberals pushing an agenda—an agenda that will destroy the church if you don’t fight it.

Doubt Identity Politics will destroy the church? Well, just remember what Al Mohler said, “We have to see identity politics as disastrous for the culture and nothing less than devastating for the church of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Of course, most all these advocates of Identity Politics are protégés of Al Mohler, but that’s another topic for another time. Right now, if you value the Southern Baptist Convention, then you must stand against this hateful racial rhetoric before it is too late.

  1. It should NEVER matter what color men are, as long as they has a relationship with Jesus Christ, let the men preach !
    As Far as Beth Moore is concerned,
    She is false, and preaches false doctrine.

    1. Without the race card on any given issue, right down to the selection of color on a dozen eggs from the supermarket, this buffoon McKissic would not have an audience.
