The good folks at the Southern Baptist Convention are plunging headlong into the same sort of anti-White animosity that is a mark of many “mainline” Christian denominations. The latest sign comes from a scholarship offer from B&H Academic, a division of the SBC’s LifeWay Christian Resources (an outfit with around 4,000 employees, paid for by the donations of White people)
One scholarship for a chick, one for an “ethnic minority”. In other words, Whites and especially White men, need not apply for this race and sex based scholarship. If you are unfamiliar, ETS stands for “Evangelical Theological Society” and this isn’t like a full ride for a doctoral program. From their website….
A $1000 to pay for a flight and lodging. I could get a flight from Fort Wayne to San Antonio for the dates of the meeting for around $600 plus 3 nights of hotels would eat up every bit of a grand. It isn’t a huge scholarship in other words. That doesn’t change the fact that this scholarship is specifically aimed at anyone but White men. It apparently makes the same assumption that is one of the foundations of modern “woke” politics, that the presence of people that are not White and not male automatically improves the event or group. Sure, every major theologian in the Christian church for the past 1000 years has been a White male but now the church is just not complete without hearing from mulatto bi-polar women in wheelchairs.
It may seem like a small thing but it is not. When the most “conservative” of the major denominations is quietly offering scholarship money for non-Whites and women to attend the Evangelical Theological Society’s annual meeting, it speaks to a bigger movement within the SBC and evangelicalism as a whole.
White men are going to find that their churches are as unwelcoming to them as every other institutions they have built, other than for their money.
