Yesterday we saw protesters across the street from the White House trying to tear down a statue of President Andrew Jackson. It’s a trend. Will they be breaking into churches next to smash stained glass windows and pull down Christ on the Cross?
And will the churches bow down (literally) to the mob, open the doors and invite them in to do whatever they want to?
(link) Black Lives Matter activist Shaun King called Monday for the removal of statues, murals and stained glass windows that depict Jesus as a “white European,” which he claimed “are a form of white supremacy. Yes, I think the statues of the white European they claim is Jesus should also come down,” King, a former surrogate on Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders’s 2020 presidential campaign, wrote on Twitter. “They are a form of white supremacy. Always have been.”
MANY (clearly not all) major religious leaders and their congregants have joined with corporate America, and have been sending money to feeder groups such as NAACP, Media Matters, or directly to Black Lives Matters and ANTIFA to the tune of well over a billion dollars over the last month. Some on this blog have called it Danegeld, and I think that’s on point.
Now the domestic terrorists will likely be entering YOUR church and ripping down religious symbols in self righteous rage. Will you let them? Will you bend your knee and “worship” Black Lives Matter the way many police chiefs have, the way many of your politicians have?
It’s a serious question.
We’ve seen civic leaders across America encourage the mob to tear down statues of people who built the country including President George Washington. Will church leaders do the same?
