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.”
BLM Activist Wearing “Justice for Breonna Taylor” T-Shirt Shoots, Kills Three People in Bar Owned by Louisville Ex-Cop
This hasn’t been reported on at all.
A man wearing a “Justice for Breonna Taylor” t-shirt allegedly shot and killed three people at a Louisville, Kentucky bar owned by a retired police officer on Friday night.
33-year old Michael E. Rynes was arrested by Louisville police on Friday after the mass shooting event, in which he allegedly shot three people at random at Bungalow Joe’s Bar and Grill. They all died of their injuries.
Eyewitness accounts describe Rynes as wearing a ‘Justice for Breonna Taylor’ t-shirt when he entered the establishment and began shooting.
Rynes would be arrested by Louisville Police hours after the shooting while hiding in a bush near Bungalow Joe’s. He matched the description given in initial 911 calls regarding the shooting, and possessed a firearm with ammunition used at the bar shooting. The 33-year old Rynes, whose social media contains content expressing his support for left-wing BLM causes and NFL anthem kneeling, was arrested and charged with three counts of murder for his alleged involvement in the shootings.
Rynes was seen smiling in photography of his arrest hours after the bar shooting.
Taylor was a Louisville woman who was shot and killed by police earlier this year during an operation in which they were seeking to apprehend her drug dealer boyfriend. Progressive and BLM activists have sought to publicize the controversial shooting-which remains under investigation by the Kentucky Attorney General- as an alternative to the incidences involving Jacob Blake and George Floyd, both of whom had extensive criminal histories when they resisted arrest for crimes.
“Nobody had ever seen this guy before,” Said restaurant owner and retired law enforcement officer Joe Bishop, referring to the shooter. “It was a totally random act.”
26-year old Toreon Hudson, 48-year old William Smallwood, and 24-year old Steven Head were killed in Rynes alleged shooting rampage. Two of the murder victims were white, and one was black.
This appears to be the latest Black Lives Matter mass shooting, following Micah Xavier’s mass shooting of five Dallas, Texas police officers in 2016. Peculiar that the corporate media has largely ignored the mass casualty event while devoting hours of coverage to the controversial Taylor shooting, which remains under official investigation.
