Jesus Christ vs. Donald Trump: To Count the Cost of Following
Here is your must read of the day. My friend Russell Moore, the head of the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention, has come out with a pretty strongly worded rebuke of Donald Trump. It’s one of those “I wish I’d written this” pieces. In the 1990s, some of these social conservatives argued that “If Bill Clinton’s wife can’t trust him, | Read More »
The Confederate Battle Flag
The Bible tells me to love my neighbor. I have a number of black friends and I do not know any of them who would feel comfortable coming into my house if I were flying the Confederate battle flag. So I don’t. In fact, in my life, the people I can think of who proudly fly the Confederate battle flag outside their homes are people | Read More »

Moore of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the Southern Baptist Convention and Ronnie Floyd, the current president of the Southern Baptist Convention, have added some much needed moral clarity to the crisis at the border.

Russell Moore and the Radio
Russell Moore is right. Christian talk radio, with some great exceptions, is largely insufferable. As both a talk radio show host and a student of the format, I listen to liberal talk, Christian talk, FM guy talk, political talk, NPR — you name it. I listen to it. And I find most Christian talk and pretty much all leftwing or “progressive” talk to be some | Read More »
Two Must Reads
Really, I need not say anything else. I know that is unusual, but just go read these two pieces. The first is by Andy McCarthy. The second is by Russell Moore. Read them and retweet them and put them on Facebook. It will save me the trouble of having to repackage and repeat arguments made better that I could.
