The Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) announced a partnership with Walter Strickland’s UnifiED to provide racial diversity training and multiculturalism resources. This despite major Evangelical figures like Dr. Voddie Baucham and philosopher-theologian Dr. Bill Roach named Strickland as a dangerous spreader of Critical Race Theory.
To defend its embrace of a radical diversity training expert, ACSI released a Fact Sheet. Of course, it was riddled with distortions of the record. As we previously noted, the sheet said Strickland did not support Critical Race Theory. This is false.
Strickland was on the Resolutions Committee that presented Critical Race Theory as an appropriate “Analytical Tool” for use by Christians.
Strickland repeatedly praised heretic James Cone and suggested Christians should read the Liberation Theology heresy.
Strickland leads the Kingdom Diversity department at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary (SEBTS)—a school that was caught teaching CRT—and Strickland’s department hosted an event where SEBTS “gave voice” to Malcolm X.
You can watch the video and see with your own eyes and hear with your own ears the many times Strickland promoted dangerous and divisive ideas.
So, to borrow from Groucho Marx, What are you going to believe, ACSI or your own eyes? (You can watch some video of Strickland’s comments here.)
And these are just a few of the issues with Walter Strickland. Conversations that Matter released this detailed point-by-point response to the ACSI Fact Sheet that will set the record straight. You can download it for free.
You should demand ACSI abandon its partnership with dangerous ideologues promoting divisive racial identity politics in the church.
