Firm hired to investigate the Southern Baptist Convention declares itself ‘Proud to be an Ally to our LGBTQ+ community.’ The firm also declared itself committed to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI).
Guidepost Solutions—the firm the Russell Moore fanboys hired to investigate the Southern Baptist Convention and make suggested improvements—came out of the closet today in a tweet revealing the firm to be radically pro-LGBTQ. Something that Bible-believing Southern Baptists might find shocking.
Guidepost said, “Guidepost is committed to strengthening diversity, equity and inclusion and strives to be an organization where our team can bring their authentic selves to work. We celebrate our collective progress toward equality for all and are proud to be an ally to our LGBTQ+ community.”
In other words, Russell Moore fanboys schemed to bring in a godless, pagan firm to investigate the Southern Baptist Convention and then make suggestions about how to remake the SBC. Some of the recommendations from Guidepost included a radical plan to set quotas on the Credentials Committee—something straight out of the playbook of Leftist Identity Politics.
The tweet revealed a great deal about the wicked worldview of Guidepost. Notice the organization affirms its support of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) policies. These are wicked and as Darrell B. Harrison points out “inherently discriminatory.”
According to Harrison, “Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) is inherently discriminatory. In fact, by definition, DEI is fundamentally antithetical to achieving ‘equality for all,’ because it discriminates against certain individuals, especially white people, in order to reach its DEI targets.”
DEI is a path toward Identity Marxism, according to experts.
Michael O’Fallon said, “The organization responsible for the SATF research and guidelines is committed to DEI: a pathway to Identity Marxism… DEI is the tool of disrupting and dismantling necessary for the purpose of deconstructing previously agreed hierarchies and the reconstruction of progressive intersectional hierarchies. And that is what Guidepost, according to their own words, is committed to enforcing.”
As Tom Buck said, this is certainly not a tweet that shows a biblical worldview—and Southern Baptists better consider this as they ponder the Guidepost recommendations.
Buck said, “Hey, SBC! You might want to consider this as you contemplate adopting the solutions they offer our convention. Not sure their voice should be listened to by any Christian organization. They don’t hold a biblical worldview and their recommendations reflect that.”
The reaction was uniformly negative from Christians.
Save the SBC tweeted, “Why did the SBC hire gay lawyers with your tithe dollars?”
This is a great time to praise God because God in His Providence exposed Guidepost’s true worldview this week—before the Southern Baptist Convention meets and not later in the month. It is almost like this is vital information that messengers need to know.
