I really don’t want to believe this. I’m too tired to believe it. But some of you are sure to come across this story today or tomorrow, so I think I should at least mention it.
The Baptist Press has denied persistent rumors that Far Left Crazy uber-atheist George Soros is funding an apparatus of the Southern Baptist Church with the goal of settling more “refugees” in America (https://www.baptiststandard.com/news/baptists/rumors-linking-soros-to-evangelical-immigration-table-disputed/).
Helping someone who’s poor and needy is a Christian duty. Helping some jihad johnnies get a foothold in America is criminally suicidal.
The Baptist Press called the reports–most recently posted at Breitbart.com–“elaborate conspiracy theories [that} date back at least six years.”
I don’t want to believe that any church takes money from, and lends support to any agenda of, George Soros, an avowed enemy of Christian America.
I won’t go into the complexities of the rumors here. I’m not up to it. Suffice it to say that these matters need to be thoroughly investigated by real investigators, not puppets for one side or the other. In the meantime, I think we ought to take the Southern Baptists’ denial at face value and give them every benefit of the doubt–as we would hope to receive, were we falsely accused of any wrongdoing.
Because buddying up with Soros, no matter how you slice it, is wrongdoing.
P.S.–By the way, it wouldn’t surprise me to discover that Soros himself, and his henchmen, started these rumors just to hurt Christians. He’s perfectly capable of it.
