WATCH: Pastor Uses Baylor University Commencement Prayer to Bash ‘Straight, White Men’
A Baptist pastor who gave the Benediction prayer at Baylor University’s commencement used his platform to bash “straight, white males” and to shill for the Cult of Climate change.
“God, give them the moral imagination to reject the old keys we are trying to give them to a planet that we are poisoning by running it on fossil fuels and misplaced priorities – a planet with too many straight, white men like me behind the steering wheel while others have been expected to sit quietly in the back of the bus,” said Dan Freemyer of Broadway Baptist Church in Fort Worth, Texas.
Some students graduating from the private, Christian university could be heard applauding. But the administration was not thrilled with the Pastor’s message, leading to a statement from the school’s president.
Linda Livingstone said:
“Like many of the attendees at one of the May 18, 2019, Commencement ceremonies, I was caught off-guard during the Benediction as this prayer is intended to focus on the graduates as they leave Baylor University and make a mark around the world, not to communicate any kind of political statement. The prayer was not scripted by anyone within the University, and I am disappointed that it has distracted from a special moment for our graduates and families attending Commencement.”
Baylor typically allows a parent of one of the graduating students to offer the Benediction during Commencement, which is what occurred in this instance. We will review our internal procedures moving forward to ensure the Benediction is offered as intended at future Commencement ceremonies.”
