The articles for this edition of DarkLinks are a bit scattered on their timeline. We’ve been sitting on them for days, but a coherent theme seemed to emerge after the Superbowl exited the news cycle. Big Eva is on the move. We first start off with an ERLC fellow joining Beth Moore in condemning littler voices of orthodoxy on social media, a common theme so far in 2020. Then we have an article from Capstone Report on Al Mohler’s endorsement infrastructure. But we wanted to highlight the ethical questions he raises. Next we join Reformation Charlotte in speaking out against political hackery, when its on the side we generally favor. And lastly we conclude with an update on Ed Stertzer who ran Lifeway into the ground. Big Eva always seems to have a place to fail upwards.

As Kidd, like Beth Moore, tweets exceedingly liberal garbage-thoughts, he gets pummeled in social media. Even on Twitter, which attracts a far higher percentage of liberals than Facebook (conservatives value long-form expression while liberals flock to the truncated platform that Twitter offers), these outspoken leftists get pushback. And they hate pushback.
Inside the ivory towers of the Evangelical Intelligentsia, there is no real pushback against dumb ideas. This accounts for Christianity Today editor, Mark Galli, saying he didn’t know a single Trump supporter. The Russell Moore/Beth Moore/Mark Galli/Thomas Kidd “types” have a hot contempt for regular Christians who don’t buy their liberal propositions.

If the SBC Elites who promote Woke Social Justice also promote Albert Mohler, then what does that tell you about Albert Mohler? He will continue the leftward slide of the SBC.
Should Southern Baptists tolerate those paid by the Convention to tamper with the political process?
Is it moral to have a seminary president involved in the appointment process of the trustees? Trustees who, at least on paper, are the seminary president’s boss?
The Southern Baptist College of Cardinals? Should CP-funded Elites influence the SBC Presidential Election?

Nothing gives ammunition to the social justice progressive wing of Evangelicalism — who continually tirades against conservatives for throwing support behind Trump — more than the actions of right-wing Evangelical political hacks like Robert Jeffress. In fact, the Evangelical left thrives off of tying all conservatives to the idolatrous right-wing movement of people like Jeffress who, for all intents and purposes, spends more time deifying Trump than he does Jesus Christ — at least in public.

Ed Stetzer, the disgraced former Lifeway executive who knowingly sold false Heaven Tourism books before being publicly exposed by Alex Malarkey, is now at the center of the leftist movement within evangelicalism. He’s now using hard-core leftist lady-preachers like Christine Caine and homosexuals like Wesley Hill to infiltrate Wheaton College, which now employs him.
Wesley Hill is a homosexual who publicly opposed the ‘Nashville Statement,’ which attempted (but largely fell short due to not condemning Same-Sex Attraction, although it did condemn Same-Sex behavior) to defend a Biblical view of human sexuality. Hill, who is gay, said the document is “antagonistic to the gospel” by opposing homosexual actions so straightforwardly.
