On Wednesday, two Southern Baptist pastors, Tom Ascol of Florida and Tom Buck of Texas, called on delegates to rescind Resolution 9. Passed in 2019, Resolution 9 allows for Critical Race Theory to be used as an analytical tool but also stated that it should be subordinate to Scripture.
The root problem with critical theory is not how the American story is told, but in pre-empting any critique or debate. That sort of thinking cannot be successfully countered by emulating it. The only way to fight bad ideas is with better ones.
John Cooper, the frontman for the award-winning Christian band, told Fox News that he believes Christians are in the middle of a "civil war" over social justice and critical race theory – and that it can only be solved with "honest conversations" filled with grace.
