A Minority Pastor’s Plea For Liberal Clergy To Stop Its Anti-White Racism
[Buck Throckmorton]

Bo Wagner is a Baptist pastor in North Carolina who writes a column that is syndicated in some southern newspapers.

Pastor Bo sees something very un-Christian in the anti-white rhetoric that is now flowing from the pulpits of liberal churches.

And by the way, Pastor Bo is not white.

I am not “some white guy indignant at being confronted with my inherent sin.” I am actually a “brownish” guy, half Puerto Rican, one quarter Lebanese, one quarter French. So kindly spare me any white guilt lectures; my tanned tribe of one took a vote and isn’t interested in hearing it.
When I was a young boy I heard a great many preachers, almost all of them white. Some of them were solid, Biblical men. Some, though, were unabashedly racist. They taught that black people were inferior and even inherently wicked because of the color of their skin. Now at fifty years of age I awaken to find that the exact same racist heresy is still very much alive and well, only with white substituted for black. That isn’t progress; it is wickedness.

He notes how liberal preachers who say “As a white pastor, I am part of the problem” will quickly pivot to actually castigating others for the color of their skin.

And as to the preachers saying it, if they simply stood and said “I am a racist,” I would not have an issue with them; they know themselves better than anyone. But they invariably quickly move away from “I” to “we” and then settle in for the long term at “you.”

He also notes how self-absorbed the liberal white clergy are in professing their shame about being white.

One of the things that bothers me about all of the angst and white guilt being displayed by a few luminaries is that it is excellent proof of how much focus they have on themselves and how little attention they actually pay to others. It is as if they themselves are finally for the first time ever discovering how wrong it was to view blacks in such a poor light, and not even beginning to realize how many people are already decades ahead of them. I have watched with keen interest a radical, God-powered transformation of churches all across the southern United States over the past five decades. I now literally do not know of a single formerly white-only church anywhere that is not sincerely welcoming to a person of any race.

Race-based hatred is always awful. It is truly heartbreaking that hating people based on the color of their skin is now acceptable again.

I have spent my lifetime preaching about how very wicked racism is. I mean that literally; I started preaching at twelve years old, and that has been one of my most consistent messages. I (apparently very naively) thought that people had gotten the message by now. How mortifying, then, to find it achieving mainstream acceptance once more, just with a different target.
