The keynote speaker for the Southern Baptist Conventions’s (SBC) Send Conference yesterday told the crowd that he would be “lynched” if he ever became President of the Southern Baptist Convention, playing into tropes that the SBC is rife with racists and white supremacists for a laugh.
Evans is a disastrous choice to be giving a talk, and it shows the drift of the denominational leaders who thought his presence was a good idea. He is not a Southern Baptist, but instead is a dangerous social justice warrior who affirms and supports Critical Race Theory and recently was seen espousing standpoint theory when he capitalized on the color of his skin to sow seeds of discord in American evangelicalism by encouraging the racist, divisive protests against the Dove Awards.
Furthermore, this man is a rank heretic. Evans’ heresies include (but are not limited to) Pelagianism (the denial of original sin), Inclusivism (you don’t have to be a Christian to be saved), and Limited Theism (the denial of God’s omnipotence).
It’s no wonder that when someone yelled “Tony Evans for SBC president” he responded, “I thought lynching was over.”
Despite saying the words for laughs, many in the crowd were shocked by the response, voicing their displeasure on social media that he would repeat these false stereotypes in such a tone-deaf way. This is particularly true within the context of many prominent black southern baptist pastors leaving the convention under charges of racism and that the SBC, as put by Beth Moore, is chocked full of white supremacists.
“The use of lynching was a deliberate provocation. It tells you what he really thinks of us,” said one messenger. “There’s nothing funny about it, and the only ones laughing were the liberals who think it’s probably true.”
