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.
