Tony Evans, White Privilege, and the Two World Policy

Tony Evans Interview

Tony Evans raised eyebrows several weeks ago when he said the African-American family was "a lot stronger" during slavery than now. He later issued a statement saying "slavery was "ungodly, unrighteous, and unbiblical." However, he maintained that Black families today have "lost some of our unity" in contrast to Black unity during slavery.  While we disagree about the stronger slave family, I appreciated Evans' efforts to address his earlier remarks.Evans had other things to say in that D … [Read more...]

Was Tony Evans Right About the Stronger Slave Family?

On his Facebook page,* The King's College professor Anthony Bradley, keeps this issue alive by asserting that Tony Evans was right to say that African-American families were "a lot stronger" during slavery than now. Although he didn't break much new ground, Evans later clarified his remarks.Bradley referred to an excellent book by Herbert Guzman and said: Here's the deal. Tony Evans was largely correct. The black family was stronger during slavery *and* Reconstruction. It's simply not true … [Read more...]

Tony Evans Says African-American Families Were “A Lot Stronger” During Slavery

UPDATE: You can listen to Evans remarks in full at these Dallas Seminary pages (this link has part two and a transcript). He has many good things to say. It is unfortunate that he prolonged the notion of the stronger African-American family during slavery..................................................I can't believe Evans said this. I think I know what he was going for but this doesn't do justice to the history on the subject and plays into racial politics without any real benefit to … [Read more...]

The saga of Indiana's Religious Freedom Restoration Act has intensified the conversation about religious reasons for discrimination. Are there ever any defensible religiously based reasons for discriminating against a protected class? One source I consulted on this was the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission guidance on religious discrimination. The following section seems relevant to the matter of competing discrimination claims (religious v. something else):Thus, a religious … [Read more...]

As I reported recently, the League of the South president Michael Hill announced their plan to celebrate the life of Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth. Plans are apparently coming together for an April celebration in Maryland.

Martin Luther King, Jr. Day – 2015

Martin Luther King, Jr.'s "I Have a Dream" speech during the March on Washington on August 28, 1963 (turn up the volume).Sadly, civil rights revisionists such as the Institute on the Constitution assert that civil rights laws should not have been passed. Thank God they were passed and as Dr. King said, "we cannot turn back." … [Read more...]

Christ and Pop Culture on Ferguson and Racism

Alan Noble at Christ and Pop Culture posted an article yesterday that is actually a rebuttal to an article at Gospel Coalition by Voddie Baucham. I am linking to it because it has so much to offer in addition to the response to Baucham. Even though Baucham has been the victim of systemic racism, he relies on an explanatory framework which leads to a number of false dilemmas. I won't review them all since Noble examines them well. Here is just one example from Baucham's article:I [Baucham] … [Read more...]
