MIT Chaplain was Forced to Resign After He Dared to Speak The Truth About George Floyd’s Criminal Past

Published

on

The College Fix reported that the Archdiocese of Boston made Daniel Moloney resign from his chaplain position at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology after students and alumni threw a fit about Moloney brining up George Floyds criminal history in an email to students.

Even though Moloney, a Catholic priest, made the case that Floyd’s criminal past should not have justified his death, his mentioning of Floyd’s rap sheet spurred several individuals to protest the chaplain’s message. They immediately turned to campus officials and filed bias complaints over the statement

“George Floyd was killed by a police officer, and shouldn’t have been,” Moloney wrote in an email on June 7 directed to the Tech Catholic Community, a group of Catholic students at MIT.

“He had not lived a virtuous life. He was convicted of several crimes, including armed robbery, which he seems to have committed to feed his drug habit. And he was high on drugs at the time of his arrest. But we do not kill such people. He committed sins, but we root for sinners to change their lives and convert to the Gospel,” the priest wrote.

“ In the wake of George Floyd’s death, most people in the country have framed this as an act of racism. I don’t think we know that. Many people have claimed that racism is major problem in police forces. I don’t think we know that.”

The New Boston Post republished the entire e-mail.

The MIT student body wasn’t having any of Maloney’s insightful commentary.

According to an article in The Tech campus newspaper, MIT’s dean for student life, Suzy Nelson, stated that administrators and the bias response team received reports concerning Moloney’s email.

In an email directed to student and faculty leaders on June 12, Nelson declared that Moloney’s message “contradicted the Institute’s values” and “was deeply disturbing” and that “by devaluing and disparaging George Floyd’s character,” Moloney did not “acknowledge the dignity of each human being and the devastating impact of systemic racism” on “African Americans, people of African descent, and communities of color,” The Tech reported.

As a result of this outrage over Moloney’a comments, the Archdiocese of Boston urged Moloney to resign from his chaplain position at the school on June 9, according to the Boston Globe.

Terrence Donilon, a spokesman for the archdiocese, informed WBZ-TV “While Fr. Moloney’s comments should not reflect on the entirety of his priestly ministry, they nonetheless were wrong and by his resignation he accepts the hurt they have caused.”

Moloney said in an interview with the Boston Globe on June 16, “I regret what happened, I regret it was misunderstood, I regret that [it] became difficult for me to be a voice for Christ on campus.”

Matt Lamb of the Campus Fix gave an overview of Moloney’s overall credentials:

Moloney is a published author at First Things, The Wall Street Journal and National Review. He used to work at the Heritage Foundation as a senior policy analyst for the DeVos Center for Religion and Society. His doctoral dissertation focused on justice and mercy, the subject of a recent book he published as well. He also maintains an active Tumblr page but has not explicitly addressed the controversy on it.

Today’s culture war will spare no one who dares to provide nuanced takes that go against established dogma.

The Right must be mentally prepared for a decade of harassment like never seen before.

Southern Baptist Convention Reverses Course on Name Change After BLP Reporting

They say they’re not changing their name.

Published

The Southern Baptist Convention has sought to dispel reporting from Big League Politics on the organization’s planned name change, arguing that the institution isn’t formally changing its name.

But a close look at the American Christian church’s plans relating to its name reveal that it’s played with the idea far more seriously than they’re making it seem.

Reports of a name change first emerged in a Washington Post article published on Tuesday. SBC President JD Greear told the Post that “hundreds of churches” affiliated with the denomination had “committed” to using the phrase “Great Commission Baptist” as an alternative to the denomination’s longtime moniker. The change would come as Greear touts his support of the Black Lives Matter, although he’s been careful in pointing out he doesn’t support any formal organization related to the movement. Greear also is renaming the church he personally pastors with the term.

The SBC’s 2021 convention will also organize under the motto of “We Are Great Commission Baptists.” Sounds a lot like a name change, even if the SBC’s leadership is steadfastly maintaining it isn’t.

The name ‘Great Commission Baptist’ is theologically sound in the Christian religion, but it’s somewhat questionable that the organization’s leader appears to be emphasizing it at a moment in which political correctness is making its entryism into many Christian churches and organizations.

It seems as if the organization’s figurehead is keen to present himself as a liberal-style suburban Evangelical to the Washington Post, but he changed his tune quite quickly when the rank and file membership of Southern Baptist churches learned that he was promoting the idea of a name change.
