In a Thursday op-ed published by Washington Post, a Southern Baptist pastor argued that potentially overturning Roe v. Wade, the controversial Supreme Court case on abortion, was not worth compromising with President Donald J. Trump.
“During the general election and the early days of the Trump presidency, when hand-wringing was still viewed as public penance for having used that hand to vote for then-candidate Donald Trump, many evangelical Christians explained that their vote was not a vote for Trump as such but was the best option they had in light of the potential for appointing pro-life Supreme Court justices in the hope of overturning Roe v. Wade,” wrote Thabiti Anyabwile, Pastor at First Anacostia River Church in Washington, D.C. “If one cares about protecting the lives of unborn children aborted by the hundreds of thousands each year, one can understand the logic.”
The piece was published after news surfaced of the upcoming retirement of Justice Anthony Kennedy, creating a vacancy on the Supreme Court which Trump will fill.
But forget the hundreds of thousands of infants murdered each year, the Pastor argues. According to Anyabwile, Trump is a racist, and that is far worse.
“In sheer numbers, more lives are ended by legalized abortion,” Anyabwile wrote. “Christians are correct to focus energy and concern on ending the practice. But in quieter, sometimes less observable ways, the carnage mounts in racial injustice and discrimination. The potential nomination of a potential pro-life judge does not, in my opinion, alleviate the concerns I have about the racial injustices this same administration seems to multiply each day.”
Anyabwile’s justification for labeling Trump a racist?
He is upset that America has not reached a solution for so-called “dreamers.” Trump offered an amnesty compromise for 1.8 million “dreamers” in January, which Anyabwile conveniently failed to mention. He also disapproves with Trump’s travel ban from predominantly-Muslim countries, which the pastor calls “at odds with Christian views of religious freedom.” Anyabwile also feels that the Trump administration’s enforcement of drug laws – which is not significantly different from the way Democrat President William J. Clinton handled drug offenders – is too harsh, and disproportionately affect minorities.
Perhaps Anyabwile is completely justified in his contempt for the aforementioned policies. But consider the moral equivalency he is making.
“It’s a deeply ironic article,” popular blogger and Southern Baptist Theological Seminary student Tim Dukeman told Big League Politics. “It takes a crazy person to say ‘I disagree with the travel ban and dreamer policy and those issues are significantly similar to the 63 million humans slaughtered by Democrats.’ That needs to be said.”
Dukeman describes Anyabwile as a very well-known figure in the Southern Baptist movement and a vocal supporter of Hillary Clinton who publicly endorsed the failed presidential candidate. According to Dukeman, Anyabwile is not actually pro-life, only gives pro-life lip service for its political expedience within the church.
“I don’t care what [Anyabwile] says,” Dukeman said. “His actions are different from his words. He is no way meaningfully pro-life.”

San Francisco Dumps Environmentalism, Bans Reusable Bags at Grocery Stores During Coronavirus Pandemic
Environmentalism is thrown by the wayside during a crisis.
The ultra left-wing city of San Francisco, Calif. is bailing on environmentalism during a time of great crisis, banning the use of reusable plastic bags at grocery stores temporarily due to concerns regarding the spread of coronavirus.
The San Francisco Department of Public Health has issued an ordinance preventing city residents from taking reusable items into the public and using them in essential stores. They believe this will make it more difficult for germs to proliferate throughout the city.
“There is no effective treatment or cure yet for the disease, testing ability while improving remains constrained, and San Francisco’s health care system is at ongoing risk of being overwhelmed. For these reasons, it is imperative that San Francisco not only extend the duration of its stay at home order but also further limit essential activities and extend social distancing requirements outside the home,” the ordinance reads.
San Francisco Mayor London Breed has not hesitated to shut down civil society in order to combat the spread of coronavirus. She has effectively tossed environmentalism to the wayside, showing that the frequent leftist bugaboo is not actually a pressing concern.
“I can’t reiterate enough how important it is for all of us to continue to comply, for all of us to continue to be good citizens, to cooperate,” said Breed, who has issued lockdown edicts that last until at least May 3.
Today we officially extended the stay at home health order through May 3. I want to thank the people of San Francisco for continuing to do their part to save lives. I know this isn’t easy but we will get through it together. pic.twitter.com/4rggISBnQv

In 2007, San Francisco was the first city in America to ban the use of plastic shopping bags. The leftists on the Board of Supervisors enacted this prohibition to satisfy Mother Earth and potentially start a trend throughout the country.
“I am astounded and surprised by the worldwide attention,” Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi said at the time, according to the SFGate. “Hopefully, other cities and other states will follow suit.”
The grocery store lobby in the state came out against the regulation at the time, believing that it would accomplish little to help the environment and only serve to frustrate consumers.
“We’re disappointed that the Board of Supervisors is going down this path,” said Kristin Power, who worked as the vice president of government relations for the California Grocers Association.
“It will frustrate recycling efforts and will increase both consumer and retailer costs. There’s also a real concern about the availability and quality of compostable bags,” she added.
By instituting their emergency measures, San Francisco has demonstrated that environmental concerns are not particularly important in the grand scheme of things. These lofty goals are put on the back burner when a real crisis, such as the coronavirus panic, takes precedence.
