Southern Baptists Get Into Exorcising Cultural Demons – No, Not Their Own

Russell Moore

Russell Moore, the ‘ethics’ champion of the Southern Baptists has discovered a new charismatic (!?!) dimension of his fundamentalist faith: exorcism.

In a recent presentation made at a recent national gathering of the Council on Biblical Manhood and Womanhood, Moore, president of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, said that gender is “an issue of spiritual warfare.” He also suggested in this peach that the non-believing world is “a patriarchy of the most pagan kind.” (!!!)

We should, I guess, feel relieved. It is not SBC that is promoting misogyny. It is pagans. And Moore is going to exorcise them. We are safe now! Bot not from SBC, and their fundamentalist ‘hawks’, unfortunately.

See HERE a commentary on Moore’s statements, from Bob Allen, from ABPNews.
