Southern Baptist Leader Claims You Must Have Children ‘To Be Human’

Southern Baptist Leader Claims You Must Have Children ‘To Be Human’ September 4, 2019

Monstrous stupidity: Albert Mohler, leader of the Southern Baptist Convention, claims that you must procreate “to be human.”

Baptist News Global reports: 

Albert Mohler, a Southern Baptist Convention leader often described as one of America’s top evangelical thinkers, angered singles and childless couples with a recent tweet claiming “to be human is to be a parent.”

Mohler, president of Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky, tweeted a quote from his daily podcast Aug. 27 discussing a Wall Street Journal story about a poll indicating that young Americans today are far less likely than the previous generation to place a high value on having children.

In his podcast Mohler said:

What we have right now is the fact that Americans are basically, by the millions, giving up on the fact that to be human is to be a parent, eventually to take on that responsibility to get married and have children, to take on the responsibility of passing on civilization itself. Instead, we have a generation right now that apparently has bought into the idea that the nation is fatally flawed and God is dead and religion is useless and having children therefore simply isn’t worth giving your life to.

Mohler warned:

There is a deep antipathy towards children, towards having children and towards taking the responsibility of having children, when it comes to many Americans.

As one might expect, the reaction to Mohler’s divisive and ignorant claim was met with derision and mockery on Twitter. The following is a sample of the reactions:

Bottom line: Albert Mohler, the leader of the Southern Baptist Convention, claims that you must have children “to be human.”
