It’s not news that bureaucrats like Russell Moore and the Soros Evangelicals who now control the Southern Baptist Convention, the country’s largest Protestant denomination, have adopted one Leftist PC agenda item after another, not least on immigration and “diversity.” But now patriots in local churches are fighting back—and the bureaucrats and allies in local churches are moving to crush them.

The First Baptist Church in Naples FL [Twitter] recently began hiring a new pastor. Eventually, the congregation’s leaders and search committee put black pastor Marcus Hayes up for a vote. According to Naples First Baptist’s rules, an applicant must receive 85 percent. Hayes received only 81 percent, 1,552 yes, 365 no. So he didn’t get the job.

Hardly surprising. An email circulating among dissidents before the vote expressed concern that Hayes supports Kamala Harris, reparations, intersectionality, Critical Race theory and Eric Mason’s “woke church” concept [Leaked Emails Show That FBC Naples’ Members Had Serious Concerns About Marcus Hayes’ Biblical Qualifications, by Jeff Maples, Reformation Charlotte, November 2, 2019]. He was simply too Leftist for a significant group in the FBCN congregation.

But rather than move on, Naples congregational leaders made a moral issue of it, accusing congregants of racism and, remarkably, moving to purge them.

From a letter from the First Baptist “Pastoral Staff” posted to the Baptist Blogger Twitter account on October 28:

Certainly, it is one thing to disagree, but it is a whole other thing to use unscrupulous, divisive, and false accusations to achieve one’s goals. It that were not bad enough, part of the minority “no” vote did something that, quite honestly, should never ever have its place in society, much less the Lord’s Church. Last week, through social media, texting, phone calls, and emails, racial prejudice was introduced into our voting process.

Please know that specifically your Pastoral Staff is deeply, deeply grieved. We are grieved for Marcus and Mandy [the applicant’s white wife] that they had to endure such vileness. We are deeply grieved that the wonderful name of our Lord and the reputation of First Baptist Church Naples was affected by this campaign against Marcus Hayes.
