This week at the large Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting in St. Louis, Dr. Russell Moore, the president of the Ethics & Religious Liberty Commission of the SBC, was asked why Christians should defend Muslims’ right to build mosques in America. More specifically, he was asked,

How in the world someone within the Southern Baptist Convention can support the defending of rights for Muslims to construct mosques in the United States when these people threaten our very way of existence as Christians and Americans? They are murdering Christians, beheading Christians, imprisoning Christians all over the world. Do you actually believe that if Jesus Christ were here today that he would support this and He would say, ‘Well let us protect the rights of those Baal worshippers to erect temples to Baal’? Do you believe that Dr. Moore?

You can see his full answer and the drop the mic moment below. Discuss
