Dear six Southern Baptist seminary presidents that denounced #CriticalRaceTheory last week without defining what it is (@DannyAkin @JamieKDew @AdamGreenway @Jeff_Iorg @albertmohler and @PreachingJKA): Let's talk.

First, Questions:
1. What is your understanding of #CriticalRaceTheory? You never explain that--not in one word of your statement. Instead you say it stems from Marxist or secular thought and that's why you are denouncing it. I find that literally ignorant and ironic. 2/
That #CriticalRaceTheory was born of Marxist thought is ignorant. It came from African-American legal scholars in 1980s post-Civil Rights era. In wake of assassination of Dr. King, scholars like #DerrickBell #PatriciaWilliams examined impact of race on law. #CRT #CriticalRace 3/

Dear .@louiegiglio, with this thread I follow the example of Paul, who publicly rebuked Peter in book of Galatians when Peter tried to placate the faction called judaizers by practicing segregation. Your championing of the term #whiteblessing in reference to #slavery is SIN. 1/
Your sin against Black people, especially women, was public. Therefore, your rebuke must also be public. For, you are an international leader. People of European descent and BIPOC in your network will follow your lead into sin, if you are not corrected publicly. 2/ #whiteblessing
I intend to do 3 things in this thread:
1) correct your thinking on white privilege and white “blessing,”
2) suggest a 3rd term that is the essence of this entire set-up: #WhitePatriarchy,
3) reflect for a moment on the impact of your sin. 3/ #whiteblessing

I am proud of pastors who chose to move to virtual services today! Good choice, sisters and brothers! In this time of isolation there is REAL potential to transform our churches, if we leverage this period as an opportunity to thicken our gospel. 1/ #COVIDー19 #virtualchurch
In his book, Prayer, @FosterEveryday says connection w/ God happens in the silence. Could this be opportunity for national #soulreset? Could it be an opportunity for us to connect w/ God again—through deeper introspection and intentional listening to voices usually overlooked? 2/
I’d like to recommend #fivebooks for pastors to dive into with their congregations over the next 2-3 weeks; while we have the blessing of this national #soulreset. 3/ #COVIDー19 #SocialDistancing

People ask what #patriarchy is. Think “Jim Crow” and apply it to women—all women. It’s a web of systems, structures, practices and believes that enforce gender hierarchy and silence women. 1/
#This is what #patriarchy looks like in the US right now. 2/
And #patriarchy looks like #this. Yesterday, .@OrrinHatch refused to listen to women and their concerns. 3/
