My Take: Are evangelicals dangerous?
Many evangelicals want to ban abortion, but does that mean they want theocracy?

My Take: Are evangelicals dangerous?

Editor's Note: R. Albert Mohler, Jr., is president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary, the flagship school of the Southern Baptist Convention and one of the largest seminaries in the world.

By R. Albert Mohler, Jr., Special to CNN

Here we go again.

Every four years, with every new presidential election cycle, public voices sound the alarm that the evangelicals are back. What is so scary about America’s evangelical Christians?

Just a few years ago, author Kevin Phillips told intellectual elites to run for cover, claiming that well-organized evangelicals were attempting to turn America into a theocratic state. In “American Theocracy,” Phillips warned of the growing influence of Bible-believing, born-again, theologically conservative voters who were determined to create a theocracy.

Writer Michelle Goldberg, meanwhile, has warned of a new Christian nationalism, based in “dominion theology.” Chris Hedges topped that by calling conservative Christians “American fascists.”

And so-called New Atheists like Richard Dawkins and Sam Harris claim that conservative Christians are nothing less than a threat to democracy. They prescribe atheism and secularism as the antidotes.

This presidential cycle, the alarms have started earlier than usual. Ryan Lizza, profiling Rep. Michele Bachmann for The New Yorker, informed his readers that “Bachmann belongs to a generation of Christian conservatives whose views have been shaped by institutions, tracts, and leaders not commonly known to secular Americans, or even to most Christians.”

Change just a few strategic words and the same would be true of Barack Obama or any other presidential candidate. Every candidate is shaped by influences not known to all and by institutions that other Americans might find strange.

What stories like this really show is that the secular elites assume that their own institutions and leaders are normative.

The New Yorker accused Bachmann of being concerned with developing a Christian worldview, ignoring the fact that every thinking person operates out of some kind of worldview. The article treated statements about wifely submission to husbands and Christian influence in art as bizarre and bellicose.

When Rick Perry questioned the theory of evolution, Dawkins launched into full-on apoplexy, wondering aloud how anyone who questions evolution could be considered intelligent, even as polls indicate that a majority of Americans question evolution.

Bill Keller, then executive editor of The New York Times, topped all the rest by seeming to suggest that conservative Christians should be compared to those who believe in space aliens. He complained that “when it comes to the religious beliefs of our would-be presidents, we are a little squeamish about probing too aggressively.”

Really? Earlier this month, comedian Penn Jillette - a well–known atheist - wrote a very serious op-ed complaining of the political influence of “bugnut Christians,” in the pages of The Los Angeles Times, no less. Detect a pattern here?

By now, this is probably being read as a complaint against the secular elites and prominent voices in the mainstream media. It’s not.

If evangelicals intend to engage public issues and cultural concerns, we have to be ready for the scrutiny and discomfort that comes with disagreement over matters of importance. We have to risk being misunderstood - and even misrepresented - if we intend to say anything worth hearing.

Are evangelicals dangerous? Well, certainly not in the sense that more secular voices warn. The vast majority of evangelicals are not attempting to create a theocracy, or to oppose democracy.

To the contrary, evangelicals are dangerous to the secularist vision of this nation and its future precisely because we are committed to participatory democracy.

As Christians committed to the Bible, evangelicals have learned to advocate on behalf of the unborn, believing that every single human being, at every stage of development, is made in God’s image.

Evangelicals worry about the fate of marriage and the family, believing that the pattern for human relatedness set out in Scripture will lead to the greatest human flourishing.

We are deeply concerned about a host of moral and cultural issues, from how to address poverty to how to be good stewards of the earth, and on some of these there is a fairly high degree of disagreement even among us.

Above all, evangelicals are those who believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and are most concerned about telling others about Jesus. Most of America’s evangelical Christians are busy raising their children, working to support their families and investing energy in their local churches.

But over recent decades, evangelical Christians have learned that the gospel has implications for every dimension of life, including our political responsibility.

We’re dangerous only to those who want more secular voices to have a virtual monopoly in public life.

    So the belief system which the author is defending clearly states that I, a secular atheist, will spend all of eternity being tormented in a pit of hellfire for my failure to comply..... and WE'RE the ones being hypercritical? Please.

    No one really intelligently involved in the discourse thinks that the religious should be excluded from participation in the democratic process. You have the right to speak your mind. But by the same token we have the right, even the responsibility, to do our part in trying to convince the undecided why we think your belief is silly at best, and frequently dangerous. It is our position that an adult who their lives adherent to notions that are demonstrably fictional is not the best leadership decision. And just because adherents to the dominion theology have not succeeded in ascendency to power does not mean they are not trying - and it IS in the best interests of all us that they be actively resisted in the public forum.

    Consider this - in your article you cite perhaps a half dozen "secular elite" atheists. In so doing you've pretty much listed a who's – who of the actively "secular elite." Now, how many of those are running for political office? Zero. They exercise what influence they have in the arena of public discourse. Not by running for a position of power where they can seek to enforce their opinions by mandate over those who disagree. And yet year after year we have to deal with political candidates with a clear and stated objective of making law comply with their religion. THAT is the monopoly against which you warn. So long as you have the right to express you opinions (a right that we in no way oppose) then there can be no monopoly on belief. It is only when you seek to elevate your faith to the level of legal mandate that monopoly exists, and that, I'm afraid, is a realm that has been almost exclusively the domain religion based government (from Inquisition to Sharia and everything in between).

    To the extent that an individual is a religious person, a believer in peace, a responsible steward of the earth and its citizens - FINE. If they get the inspiration to do good from a book or a cleric or prayer - FINE. But the fact of the matter is that many of the most zealous are the ones who seek political power. And they do so in order to empower their zealotry and in turn to impose their religious on the rest of us. And they ARE dangerous. And we will resist them. And the fact that every election cycle we are mostly successful maybe should tell you something about where America REALLY stands on the question of evangelical religion in politics.

      To indignant , In Christianity you have a choice To sin or not to sin We won´t like muslims will kill you for it .
      In Christianity we have a guideline we go by . I´ll say it again the biggest murderers and persecuters have
      been Atheist , hitler , stalin , pol pot . mao all have killed millions upon millions of people . The crusades
      and the inquisition were done by catholics and not by evangelical Christians . You Atheist need to get your lies right :

    Godless socialists have to rely on swaying public opinion because they don't have any children of their own to influence and program with their ideas. They deny their first vocation to go forth and multiply. People of faith have a greater number of children than atheists do, so public banter and fear mongering are the atheist's only options for worldview propagation. By Darwin's theory alone, atheists and small family socialists are on their way to extinction.

    • WolfAK

      Wow.. your rhetoric is a plethora of hypocritical, misinformed mush. Apparently, being rational about the number of children one can support is unholy? The fact you refer to making children as.. a first vocation.. is simply mind numbing. While the vocal, and press focused, -very small minority- of neuvo zealots may sound like a growing movement, fact is the more secular view (from atheist to simply agnostic or fashionable religious) grows every year... far outnumbering the heavily religious, at least in the western world.

      If that is the case.. how do you account for the ever increasing number of those that either follow no particular faith or positions themselves as without any religion.. We all saw what faith is capable of.. it flew airliners into buildings..

    reply to the author
    """What is so scary about America’s evangelical Christians?"""

    There's a simple comparison you can make as an evangelical to understand the problem. Compare evangelical Christianity to fundamental Islam. Consider your objections to fundamental Islam, then look in a mirror.

    Your fundamental religious beliefs have essentially dragged the progress of mankind. We are no longer living in the Bronze Age. There is no longer a reason to turn to gods and mythology to explain the world we live in.

    reply to Sherri:
    """The ones who will keep the rest of us from harm,and if we only follow these few simple rules, we'll be safe too."""

    The interesting thing is, the more deeply entrenched you become in a religion, the more numerous and petty the rules become. The rules begin to cover and dictate your behavior in every minor aspect of your life.

    If evangelicals were so besmitten with saving lives, why is Ricky Boy so intent on killing them? Your position is inconsistent, only God can judge and you and your evangelical bretheren, forget the sisters as you put them below men, dish out the death penalty don't seem to be on the front lines to abolish it. Hmmm! Let me think, hypocrite comes to mind. I know a bunch of you and you all are a scary group of people. A baptist minister told me a joke once, wherever you have 4 Baptists, there's a 5th. To those of you so young, a fifth is a measure of whishey in this country.

    The trouble with Evangelicals is that they are over exuberant for their cause and consider themselves as doing God's work ... which effectively blinds them to the total picture and renders them irresponsible yet aggressive. The disgusting part is that so much of it is motivated by the "holier than thou" egotism and goes against the doctrine of all faiths that demands genuine humility for true faith. Too many clergy neglect that and just push for their limited issues (feeding their own egos) without ever responsibly considering anything else.

    October 16, 2011 at 9:17 am |
  9. elflander

    The term "evangelical" has been hijacked by televangelists and megachurch preachers. There was a time when evangelicals stood apart from the fundamentalists and pentecostals as being concerned with the life of the mind and interested in genuine dialog. One of that tribe just passed last week: Philosopher Arthur Holmes.

    So 1/3 of the people on this discussion are going to be very against anything remotely doing with Christianity, 1/3 will be very much for a moral majority and 1/3 will just not care.

    The fact is that SOMETHING always fills the void of leadership and principles. Do I want that to be atheists? No – I don't have enough faith to be an atheist/evolutionist. Far right evangelicals? No – I don't have enough faith to be that crazy. Muslims? Heck no. Christian-based principles that make sense? Sure. It got this nation rather far and now, having departed from such in the last 50 years, appears to be heading in the complete wrong direction.

    • Jeff Williams

      """It is because evolution simply doesn't add up."""

      This is a common statement heard from people who know nothing about it.

      Somewhere in this thread there will also be this question: "Gee, if we descended from monkeys who come there are still monkeys?" Same thing.

      Ignorant statements from people who learn what little they know about evolution from people who know nothing about evolution. And this goes on and on and on.....

      You can read, so please read about science. Get a subscription, say, to Discover magazine, or if you're adventurous – Scientific American. Stop being foolish and educate yourself.

    Many Christian evangelicals are hypocrites. They are against abortion but support the death penalty. They support the Ten Commandments but support war. They support the teachings of Jesus but oppose social policies to help the poor. They read the Bible but oppose protection of the Earth. Yes, they are dangerous because many are poorly educated and listen to socalled clergy who are poorly educated and hypocritical.

      You're comparing abortion to the death penalty? You're comparing the innocence of a child to the guilt of an adult? You're hypocrisy in the killing of innocent babies is better than a guilty adult being sentenced to death? What a warped sense of justice you have. You need to learn who true Christians are. Not everyone who claims to be one actually IS one. I can claim to be your friend or family member but that doesn't make it true.

      It isn't a question of intelligence, nor of beliefs .... it really is the attraction of doing 'God's work", in other words, it it is an ego trip. That is the way these aggressive ministers attract the people and excite them ... they get caught up in feeling good about themselves and then disregard everything else ... even common sense, the total picture and being responsible.

      The hypocrisy is because most of the "pro life" group gives as a primary reason that "life is precious" and "only God should decide matters of life and death" but then have no problem with the death penalty or with killing non-Christians in a war. So they are "pro life" only as long as it's not someone they don't like. That is the hypocrisy.

      Unfortunately, it is not a joke. They actually believe they are right. like the Taliban believes they are right and the Iranian leadership believe they are right, and no amount of logic or conflicting facts will change that because they don't care about logic and facts. Of course there have always been people unwilling or unable to face reality. What I think makes this group dangerous is that they not only want to avoid reality but want to force everyone else to as well. The successful civilizations evolve as things change in order to survive, but this group doesn't believe in evolution and if they continue to prevent the US from evolving, then America as we've known it will not survive and another country that does evolve will take our place as the world's leading country.

    "Concerned about moral issues," this coming from people who worship an insane god that kills and tortures his children because they don't follow his rules. What good parent would demand worship?

    Just from reading the comments of "atheists" and anti-Christians, it is obvious... they are the ones who wish to destroy freedom of religion. To be fair, I'll say "some" as not all "atheists" are not mean spirited. But the comments here prove what the author is saying. American history itself proves that Christians are the ones who promote democracy and freedom of religion. It was the reason this country was founded. On the case of evolution (since some have mentioned this), it is a stated THEORY and always has been. It is not proven fact at all. So everyone has a right to consider a theory true or false. That is a scientific method of critical thinking. So those who want to push evolution on others, consider that your actions are against scientific thought and critical thinking. To omit the idea of a Higher Order aka Creator is to shut off the door to critical thinking.

    October 16, 2011 at 9:10 am |

      I totally disagree. The non-religious simply don't won't you to shove your religion down their throats. Their faith is none of your business, and vice versa. End of story. It's actually very simple. I think in kindergarten they call it MYOB.

      Do you know what's also still a theory, Gravity. It seems to be working pretty well despite it still being called a theory. I don't believe Creationists; no way can someone not look at a gorilla and not see that we are related. Your just so completely brainwashed that you'd rather believe in fairy tales than your own two eyes.

      hmm, where should i start?

      Atheists wish for the same freedom of and FROM religion that any other citizen does. Christians historically are NOT the ones who push for democracy and freedom of religion, which you could easily have known by taking a 5th grade social studies class. This country was founded on secular values, not christian. By exclaiming that evolution is just a "stated theory" you have expressed your ignorance of what evolution actually is and what a scientific theory is. We will begin to consider the idea of a "High Order aka Creator" after we rule out that it wasn't magic pixies that farted the universe into existence. thank you.

      Sigh..... Yet another argument from ignorance.

      Please, PLEASE, will you take the time to discover what "theory" means in scientific methodology? You do NOT understand the concept, it is clear.

      Same goes with "critical thinking." If you were capable of true critical thinking, you would not be making the argument that you do. Your position, frankly, is classic "concrete thinking".

    • gayjesus

      You should look up the definition of scientific theory. It isn't what you think it means. It isn't s guess. It isn't a theory like they talk about on CSI. There is a theory of gravity. Do you question the existence of gravity?

      Evolution happened. Deal with it. The argument for? DNA. You lose the argument every time with only those three letters. Why can't you view evolution as a beautiful way in which god created all life? Christians make many conjectures and see symbolism in many of the old testament prophets by saying that they are talking about Jesus, but when it comes to Genesis, it HAS to be taken literally. Why?

      Darwin had a degree in theology, you know. Christians at the time didn't see a conflict of interest between evolution and their religion. It wasn't until the evangelicals started twisting people's minds in the 70s that this even became an issue. Do some research. Educate yourself.

      I am not a Christian, but I have read the bible cover to cover. I bet most so called christians can't even say that. People must find a variety of information about topics that concern them and form their own opinions based on the available info. They also must be willing to change their opinion as new information becomes available. The sheeple just jump on the nearest hate bandwagon because they are ticked off and don't know why. They need someone to tell them why they are mad and give them an enemy to hate.

      So I get your point that Evolution is a Theory...which based on scientific research sounds pretty valid. But how could you defend Creationism which is not even a Theory but a Fairy Tail or folk story that's lingered around for many years, older than when people thought the sun was the center of the universe.

      Ky.... if it was simple to MYOB then they probably would. The issues become far more difficult because many preach exactly the opposite.. especially the dominionists. Some may make fun of mormon elders (the ones missioning and coming to your door) but, if you tell them to MYOB, they generally will right off. The deeper fundamentalists and dominionists simply go above your head.. their mission.. goal.. and frameworks say to place themselves in power and government, then force their beliefs outwards. When you look at it that way, the door to door greets seem downright friendly. Just google or wiki dominionism, but keep in mind there are also a lot of word games played with that term, too.. to be fair. theocracywatch has a decent article on it as well.

    Religion is a personal choice as a philosophy of life to live by. I reject any notion that any one religion holds the complete truth nor do I believe judging people by a religious doctrine that is not one they subscribe to. If a person does not like abortion then don't have one.

    All religious fundamentalists are dangerous and should be monitored and scrutinized by our law enforcement system including southern evangelicals in the US and Rev.Mohler himself.

      Where do you see Joe "lumping all Christians together" in that statement? He clearly states that he is talking about fundamentalists, not regular people.

    How many christians does it take to praise their lord?
    Make believe god said, All of them, or I'll send you to an eternal fiery hell.
    If that's not enough to say that religion is pathetic, then you ARE weak minded.

    Anyone who tries to push their religious beliefs on others is a bigot and dangerous. Religion clouds logical thinking. I am a non-denominational Christian, but can't come up with a logical counter to the argument that he world would be a better place without religion.
