LINK A Black Pastor Who Criticized Southern Baptists Received This Racist Response | Hemant Mehta | Friendly Atheist | Patheos

Last month, Pastor Dwight McKissic of Cornerstone Baptist Church in Arlington, Texas announced he was going to get the hell out of the Southern Baptists of Texas Convention — and maybe the Southern Baptist Convention entirely.

The tipping point for McKissic was that, as a Black man, he couldn’t handle the SBTC (and the SBC) saying that systemic racism wasn’t a serious problem. They had openly rejected everything about “Critical Race Theory,” and even though McKissic agreed on certain points, to reject the entire thing as if it was some kind of liberal conspiracy was really dismissing the kind of racism Black Americans have experienced for centuries. McKissic also said that, given the SBC’s history of racism, “it is preposterous to ask African American churches to blindly trust [SBC leaders’] interpretations regarding CRT.”
