Southern Baptists Should Impeach Russell Moore – Prof. Robert Gagnon

Russell Moore is president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission (ERLC) of the Southern Baptist Commission.

I say: Impeach Russell Moore for dereliction of duty. Russell Moore has written a pathetic article. “The Roman Road from Insurrection,” calling for Trump’s removal from office by impeachment or application of the 25th Amendment if he does not resign. This call from Moore is hardly surprising because it exhibits the same “Never-Trump” tunnel vision, hatred, and dearth of documentation that we have come to expect from him in politics.

The article is short on facts and long on bluster. His whole argument is predicated on the claim that Trump incited violence and insurrection, which he clearly did not. There is no reasonable way to conclude that Trump incited a riot if one gave a careful read of the entire transcript of Trump’s speech.

Even what happened by the wrongdoers in the Capitol doesn’t remotely approach the 30+ dead and $2 billion worth of damage in the seven-month-long race riots involving much larger numbers this past year, stoked and incited by Democrats, during which time Moore did not call for a single Democrat to be removed from office. While he judges the race riots by the best in the movement he judges Trump supporters by the tiniest and most extreme elements.

Trump has legitimate grounds for believing that the election was stolen. Nowhere was there any attempt to do signature matches in areas where there were unbelievable high voting rates, areas where there were no safeguards for insuring that significant fraud did not occur.

The real threat to the Republic and to its Constitution is coming from the Democrat Party but Moore is too blind, for whatever reason, to see it. He has done his best to insure that the Party that poses the greatest threat to religious liberty by far would get elected.

That’s why he shouldn’t be President of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission. Impeach Russell Moore.
