A Southern Baptist woman harassed by Social Justice Warriors for believing Galatians 3:28

A Southern Baptist woman was fired from her job and received online harassment after posting a video calling on Christians to reject the Social Justice Gospel. Reagan Escudé is a lifelong Southern Baptist. She is from Shreveport and has lived four years in Natchitoches, Louisiana. She graduated college in 2019 and worked at a local business for almost a year (June 10 would’ve been her anniversary.) But the mob came to cancel her.

“If anyone was wondering about the power of mob mentality & cancel culture, I was just fired from my job for giving a Biblical response to social issues. Any advice from other voices who feel silenced?  #censorshipisfascism #groupthinkisadisease #iwontgosilent.”

You might not think of Natchitoches, Louisiana as the frontline of the Culture War, but it is.

A former co-worker saw Reagan Escudé’s video and took to Social Media to demand she be canceled. And within a few hours she was fired from work. According to Escudé, she was fired due to threats made to her employer, including death threats towards the owners.

Here is a screenshot of the online post calling this Southern Baptist “Racist” and “homophobic.”

Escudé received a few messages and subtweets indicating she needed her “*** beat,” etc.

“I’ve tried to avoid reading most of them but the trending comments were that I am racist and homophobic and not a Christian,” she said.

Reagan Escudé’s crime? Saying that Jesus offers a better way to racial reconciliation through the Gospel than the policies promoted by the Black Lives Matter movement.

Reagan Escudé’s video posted to Instagram, which has reached about 6,400 views as of Saturday evening, received partisan condemnation from Woke Social Justice Warriors. It also elicited praise from others including some Christians.

“I watched her video.. It wasn’t racist! Matter of fact, as a black woman who is very Christian, I full on support it. It’s kinda sad The Bible tells Christians not to conform to the patterns of this World (Romans 12:2) & yet they’re doing it.”


This was an important part of Reagan’s video. She called out Christians for falling into biblical error.

“I’m seeing a lot of Christians, a lot of Evangelical Leaders, a lot of people that I grew up in church with who are falling for the Social Gospel,” Reagan Escudé said in an Instagram video.

She said racism is a “heart problem that can only be reconciled through Jesus Christ.” The Gospel is what Christians should be focused on. “The Gospel is sufficient for us. We don’t need a movement to tell us that Black Lives Matter. That should be a given.”

Escudé cited Galatians 3:28 as how Christians should view ethnic issues. The Apostle wrote, “There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

And regarding the death of George Floyd, she said that “We should be grieving the injustice of his death.” Also, “We should be devastated that a man made in the Image of God was murdered unjustly by a corrupt cop.

Escudé said the bad conduct of the police officer was not a result of systemic racism or a problem in law enforcement. Rather, “It is a reflection of his (the cop’s) heart.”

And the only solution for that–Jesus.

Escudé pointed out that Black Lives Matter is committed to not only defunding the police and racial reconciliation but the destruction of the nuclear family. Escudé linked the current rioting to the epidemic of fatherlessness. Also, the BLM

“I do not and will not support a movement that selectively chooses which black lives they care about,” Escudé said pointing to the hypocrisy of the Black Lives Matter movement ignoring the disproportionate way abortion kills black babies. “I’m not going to be spreading the message and sharing the hashtags and insinuate that I stand for everything else going on right now,” Escudé said.

  1. Folks just hate the truth. She is an incredibly grounded young woman for her age. I wish my faith was as strong as hers.

    She’s correct that BLM want the destruction of the nuclear family. They don’t care about every black life. If BLM DID care about every life, they would be demostrating in Chicago EACH AND EVERY DAY where blacks are killing blacks at an alarming rate. They would be demonstrating at EVERY Planned Parenthood facility on a daily basis. Planned Parenthood has killed 20 million black children since 1973.

  2. Did you ask the owner of the business why she was fired, or did you only ask her? That doesn’t seem like quality reporting to me.

    1. thank you for that, Journalistic Integrity. If they can’t report the full truth of a story, including the employer’s rationale, they should not run the story. It’s yellow journalism.

  3. I am sorry for her. The body of Messiah has been/is being attacked from inside, as has/is the gospel. It is one of Satan’s most effective tools — scripture supports this. And it is what happens when the “church” seeks common cause with the Culture (aka the World). That is why Messiah said many would come in His name and deceive many.

    Stand firm. Be steadfast.

  4. I did watched the entire video before responding. Whether the viewer agrees with Reagan Escudé, it is obvious she is speaking from a position of love and unity, and the sincere desire as a Christian to share the message of Jesus Christ and redemption. Her observations of the Black Lives Matter movement were accurate, well-articulated and easily substantiated with a little personal research. No “homophobic” comment was made, simply the statement that BLM supports GBLT. How sad that a co-worker, who disagreed with Escudé s personal message, lacked the maturity and tolerance essential for the work place setting and decided to make this a personal attack.

  6. Thank God for her example of Christians willing to stand up for the Bible. Let everybody in the world disagree with it if they want, the Bible is true. Everyone is equal in the sight of God Almighty.

  7. Before I read this I said the exact same thing. Praise God I am not alone. Why aren’t people protesting planned parenthood?

  8. Before I ever read this article I said the same thing. What’s going on with all the Black babies being aborted. Where was BLM then?

  9. Good that she was fired to be honest. Also, she’s white so of course she isn’t gonna see that systematic racism is a problem

    1. Cool… OK to be Fired for holding a differing belief than you… Amazing. Freedom is for everyone, not just those would believe as you.

      1. Words matter. If you believe in capitalism, you should know that the company care fire at will if they feel the employee doesn’t represent them in a way that matches their values. Freedom of speech means she’s not in jail. It doesn’t mean she gets to keep her job.
        Furthermore…Christianity is full of hypocrisy. You pick and choose verses of the Bible to take literally and ignore the basic message of the Bible. Love thy neighbor for most of you means the white skinned guy that lives next to you.

        1. Spot on – thank you. Nothing like white privileged, hypocritical pseudo Christians spewing their biblical nonsense to other white hypocritical narrow minded Covidiots. And then liking each other’s posts to make it appear as though the world supports only their point of view. Reagan needs to go to the inner city and spend weeks if not months repenting and learning first hand what oppression and systemic racism does and has done in this country. White blonde pretty face = Covidiot = Trumpster Dumpster Cheerleader

    1. Yup – she will be the next WH press secretary because she is 1) Blonde (fake for sure) 2) Young 3) he can grab her there and get away with it 4) Dumb as a door knob 5) White

      Then she will truly be doing God’s work as she supports Chief Satanic One … aka tRumpster.

      GFY Dumpster Trumpsters

  10. Enough! I get it and at this point I’ve tuned it out by not allowing MSM on my TV or computer and are healthier for it. Try it … *Peace*

  11. Reagan I’ve watched you grow from a cute little girl into a beautiful young lady. You are pure in every way and I’m sure that rubbed your unbelieving jealous coworker the wrong way. You are grounded in Gods Word. You stay there! What the world says makes no difference only Gods Word does. This world is temporary and evil but living with God in heaven is for eternity. Some of these people who are left behind when God comes will remember you and finally understand the things you spoke about but it will be too late for them. As a Christian you will be persecuted….so was Jesus and He is right there with you thru it all. Prayers for you sweet girl…keep standing firm. You are not alone

  12. I know this young lady. Grew up in the same church as her. My kids grew up around her under the same children and youth program, same children, MS & HS pastors…and I can tell you there is none sweeter, kinder and more in love with Christ than this young woman!

    She also grew up with a black family in this same church. One I am particularly close to…and one which is is close to as well…her message was unintentionally painful to this family…my asking to both was that they take all of this down off is social media and sit down and talk!

    There were a lot of biblical truths stated…but…sometimes, in the midst of turmoil, high emotions and bible thumping….sometimes Truth can wait to allow for listening…her message while technically true, was poorly timed and misplaced…

    We need to stop using Scripture as a weapon…when we need desperately to use it for healing!

    My verse to all parties was “be quick to listen, slow to speak and slow to anger”….

  13. This is a note on this topic that I sent to my son who is studying to be a pastor:
    Hi Son,
    Here’s a discussion I had with a pastor that posted a post yesterday suggesting that if the gospel doesn’t include social justice it is a truncated gospel. I was emotional. I hope not too emotional. I deleted it after his people started liking my comments. That made me worry that I shouldn’t be doing this in front of his own people. Maybe that was the wrong call because he was the one putting it out there in the first place… don’t know. At any rate, I wanted to share this with you.
    I think you’ll see that my point (however emotional) is that the church is taking virtue signaling from the world. Learn from this. The gospel stands alone. Always. Read through this and see if you don’t pick up a subtle condescension towards believers who believe that from this pastor.
    Remember our dog Rocky? Remember how he would jump all over us and slobber on us when we came home after being away for a few hours? I sort of see the church doing that with the world right now with this issue. “We are right too! We get this too! We are on the right side of this!”. It’s such a distraction. At any rate, read thru this conversation and please, please, please, if you don’t understand where I’m coming from or need a clarification on anything please ask me… Love you son and I’m so proud of what God is clearly doing in your life.

    Here is the discussion:


    Wait, so you’re against racism and Injustice? Awesome! Good for you! Guess what, I am too!! Good for me! We are good people aren’t we?? Guess what else, I know about 100 people in my extended circle and they are all against racism and Injustice too!! You know what, I just found out that Madonna is against racism and Injustice too! So is Miley Cyrus and I just read that Marilyn Manson is against racism and Injustice too! I can’t believe it! We are all on the right side of this Pastor!! In fact, I’m so impressed that I might go look into what Marilyn recommends on how I should be living my life. Madonna has some interesting ideas on spiritualism — since she’s on the right side of racism and Injustice I’m thinking I may look into her thoughts!

    How are we different Pastor? How can they so easily stand on the right side of racism and Injustice without the gospel? Maybe we don’t need the gospel at all? What do you think? They are getting it right without the gospel?

    So, so sad to see pastors distracted like this but perhaps I’m too naive to understand. Which apostle combined the great commission with protests and messages about the political cause of the day? Which one used protests about the rampant torture and murder of Christians to advance the cause? Which one marched in protests against the cheating and abusive tax collectors to advance the cause of the gospel? Which one suggested that the “gospel only” was insufficient in their time? I’m sure I’m missing those passages? To suggest that believers who believe the gospel is the only solution to these problems are somehow “less than’ or “not quite enlightened” is sad and dangerous and is polluting the church. Racists, looters, thieves, liars, cheats, adulterers, sinners and distracted pastors all need to repent and turn to the gospel.

    Romans 1:16

    For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek.

    1 Corinthians 4:20

    For the kingdom of God does not consist in words but in power

    1 Corinthians 2:4

    and my message and my preaching were not in persuasive words of wisdom, but in demonstration of the Spirit and of power,

    1 Thessalonians 4:9-11

    Now concerning brotherly love you have no need for anyone to write to you, for you yourselves have been taught by God to love one another, 10 for that indeed is what you are doing to all the brothers throughout Macedonia. But we urge you, brothers, to do this more and more, 11 and to aspire to live quietly, and to mind your own affairs, and to work with your hands, as we instructed you, 12 so that you may walk properly before outsiders and be dependent on no one.

    I didn’t call people “less than” or “unenlightened.” I said if our response to injustice is just saying “the world needs Jesus” it’s a truncated gospel. Jesus commanded us to obey his teachings. Our obedience doesn’t save us, Jesus’s obedience and sacrifice saved us. Our renewal and our motivation to obey his teachings is because of his life, death, and resurrection. So what did he teach us? He taught us to believe and obey.

    Jesus taught us to be like the Good Samaritan. He didn’t pit the gospel against action. We need the gospel we hold dearly to move us to action.

    Matthew 25:31-46

    James 1:22-25

    Luke 10:29-37

    Who in your church is on the wrong side of racism and Injustice? Who in your circle of friends is on the wrong side of racism and Injustice? In fact, I can’t find anyone in my circle of friends, in the Hollywood celebrities I like, the musicians I listen to, the newscasters I watch, the messages in secular movies who get this wrong. No one. Who are you trying to win over to the right side of racism and Injustice?. Why does the culture get this right without the gospel? I’ll tell you what I do see in a lot of those people. They are lost. They don’t know Christ. They need the gospel. You are distracted. Come home.

    focusing on gospel-centered advocacy and action is being lost? I pray you aren’t in leadership in a local church. I’m not against the gospel…it’s the center of what I preach, how I lead, and how I live.

    I didn’t say you were lost. I said you are distracted. You haven’t answered my question. Who are you trying so hard to win over to the right side of racism and Injustice?

    my purpose in posting is to help the people I shepherd and lead think through these current events through a gospel lens. I also hope to help those in my sphere of influence think through these things in a gospel-centered way.

    What are you hoping to accomplish in this conversation? Also, what kind of tone are you intending? Are you frustrated, annoyed, or do you feel a genuine and caring concern? That would be a helpful clarification for me.

    I am watching the church I love become increasingly distracted from the gospel. In fact it’s alarming. We’ve come a long way from “I preach Christ crucified…” Let me propose something to you. The world and your flock is getting this right. Virtually every one of them, everywhere. The world as image-bearers already know racism and injustice is wrong. Just turn on any news channel — they know… What they don’t know is where to go with their own sin. You’re distracted my brother. You asked what I’m hoping to get out of this. I don’t know you personally but you posted something that attempted to teach me that my focus on the gospel, the power of God for salvation, the hope for a lost world, is incomplete unless I jump up and down and make sure I’m on the right side of racism and injustice (the current political issue). I couldn’t let that proposition go unchallenged. You cite me verses about good works in relation to racial injustice. Let me suggest this… If you’re saying that I need the gospel to get racism and injustice right — then guess what, I don’t need it at all. And neither does the world — they already get racism and injustice right. You are distracted. Come home.

    I’m not distracted from the gospel. The gospel is motivating me to love my neighbor… not to take a political stance. If the image of God is not recognized and valued on lives in our country, I’d hope those who hold dearly to the gospel speak up and take action. That we would be good neighbors. This is an opportunity to be a witness of Jesus. Standing with the oppressed in our country is representing the value Christ places in people. If your gospel belief doesn’t bear fruit it could be a sign your belief isn’t sincere or it is truncated. Ephesians 2:8-10 says we have been saved by faith to good works. I just happen to believe speaking on the value of black people in our country is a good work the gospel moves me toward. You may not have the same passion for racial reconciliation I do but I would hope the gospel has moved you to a good work (whatever that may be).

    You may be misinterpreting what I’m saying. I’m not saying if the gospel is real to you then this is the one issue or good work you must do to show your faith is real. This isn’t the only good work the church is called to but I personally hope the whole church can learn and act because it is significant to our context and culture. So I would highly encourage every church to learn and grow in this area because our country is only increasingly becoming more diverse.

    What I am saying is if you are speaking to the issue of racial injustice then action is necessary alongside gospel proclamation.

    “Finally, it must be said that nothing could be more antithetical to modern nontheistic Satanism than racist ideologies. We embrace a large diversity of individuals from a wide spectrum of political and cultural backgrounds, but we’re all unified by our respect for individual rights and pluralism.”

    – The Satanic Temple of NYC.

    Even they get this right… you’re distracted. Nothing you’re saying is wrong in terms of racism and injustice. Of course we need to get this right as believers (like everyone else does). But it just doesn’t take the gospel to get there as evidenced by virtually every organization getting this right — even the ones dedicated to the opposition of the gospel. Point folks to the cross alone. It is the only transforming power.

  14. Ms. Escudé had a right to speak her mind, and her employer had the right to fire her due to her views being controversial to many and thus bad for business. Freedom works both ways, y’all.

  15. Get real. Making a statement based on the Bible is not violating the first amendment. Would someone who spoke out for BLM on the job get fired? Another double standard just increases the corruption.
