Former Governor of Massachusetts and failed presidential candidate Mitt Romney has been a Senator-elect from Utah for less than one week, and the weak “Republican” is already opposing President Donald J. Trump.
“President Trump tweeted late last month, ‘There is great anger in our Country caused in part by inaccurate, and even fraudulent, reporting of the news. The Fake News Media, the true Enemy of the People…’ He was referring to ‘CNN and others in the Fake News business,’ not foreign provocateurs,” Romney wrote in a USA Today op-ed.
“Surely every president has endured stories that he knew were inaccurate and has chaffed at one or more news publications. George Washington was routinely brutalized by a newspaper that had been anonymously funded and founded by his own secretary of State, Thomas Jefferson. But no American president has ever before vilified the American press or one of its professional outlets as an “enemy of the people,” Romney continued.
For Romney to even compare media in the 1700’s to the brutality faced by Trump by the likes of the Democratic Party’s propaganda arm in the mainstream press in 2018 is obviously moronic. But that won’t stop Romney, whom Republicans can expect to pose staunch opposition to Trump in the Senate.
Romney, who would have been president had he not quit campaigning for the final two weeks of the 2012 cycle, also mislabeled the United States as a “Democracy” when any fourth grade civics student knows that it is a Constitutional Republic.
“A lesson evidenced by the Arab Spring and by the pseudo-democracies of Venezuela, Russia, and China is democracy and freedom cannot be permanently established in the absence of the basic institutions of freedom, perhaps most notably a free press,” he said. “If a free press is absent, the door to true democracy is quickly closed. This realization now forms an important part of our national foreign policy.”
It’s going to be a long six years.
Southern Baptist Convention President Attacks Opponents of Critical Race Theory as Closet Racists, Neo-Confederates, and Pharisees
Russell Moore 2.0
The president of the Southern Baptist Convention, J.D. Greear, has blasted leaders and pastors who’ve made “closet racists” and “neo-Confederates” feel more at home in their churches than people of color.
His criticism came during an address at the Southern Baptist Convention’s Executive Committee meeting on Monday.
“Let me state this very clearly, as clearly as I can, critical race theory is an important discussion and I am all for, as I hope you would be, robust theological discussion about it,” Greear said. “For something as important as what biblical justice looks like in the world today, we need careful, robust, Bibles open, on our knees discussion. But we should mourn when closet racists and neo-Confederates feel more at home in our churches than do many of our people of color.”
Greear also compared Southern Baptist Convention leaders to the Pharisees in their opposition to Critical Race Theory, stating that although they believe “correct doctrine,” they are closing their hearts to the full Gospel message by attacking CRT.
“The Pharisees who resisted Jesus, we know more than any other group in the world had correct doctrine. It was their spirit that Jesus said disqualified them from the Kingdom of God. They weren’t content with what the Bible said. For example, they weren’t content with how exactly the Bible said it, so they created what has come to be known as a hedge about the law, conflating the traditions of men, Jesus said, with the commands of the law,” he said.
Jeff Maples, covering Greear’s address for Reformation Charlotte, says that Greear is referring to “vocal anti-Marxist critics” when he uses the terms “neo-Confederates” and “Pharisees.”
“If Greear were after unity, he’d denounce the heresy that is swarming the denomination and call for unity around the truth. Instead, Greear labels those who defend biblical doctrine as ‘pharisees’ and calls on the denomination to repudiate them,” Maples writes, adding that Greear’s comparison of certain SBC leaders to Pharisees is based on an incorrect understanding of how the New Testament presents the Pharisees.
“Greear also demonstrated a complete lack of understanding of Jesus’ issue with the Pharisees when said that the Pharisees in the New Testament had correct doctrine, but that their problem was that they opposed Jesus. The Scriptures, however, do not teach that the Pharisees had correct doctrine—Jesus’ problem with them is that they were false teachers, just like those who push Critical Race Theory.”
