The Conservative Baptist Network is thankful for President Donald J. Trump’s strong stance against Critical Race Theory (CRT) and its destructive influence upon our nation. His leadership on this vital issue was evidenced in a Sept. 4 order for federal agencies to cease and desist training that promotes the tenets of CRT.
The Conservative Baptist Network has been clear from the beginning regarding this divisive, anti-gospel ideology. The Network strongly believes in a just society for all based on biblical truth, opposing racism and sexism in all forms, and therefore rejects worldly ideologies infiltrating the Southern Baptist Convention, including Critical Race Theory, Intersectionality, and other unbiblical agendas deceptively labeled as “Social Justice.”
We call upon every Southern Baptist entity to denounce publicly—by statement and action—any and all support for Critical Race Theory.
The Conservative Baptist Network is a broad based grassroots movement of Southern Baptists of all generations who are committed to the sufficiency of Scripture for all facets of life and application. Its 54-member Steering Council includes pastors and laypeople from across America, including well-known figures such as former Atlanta fire chief Kelvin Cochran, former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Family Research Council President Tony Perkins, past SBC President Charles Stanley, Billy Graham Evangelistic Association Vice President Tom Phillips, and immediate past SBC Executive Committee Chairman Mike Stone.
