CHARLIE KIRK IS PART OF THE MOVEMENT WHICH SEEKS TO REPLACE BIBLICAL CONSERVATIVE VOICES WITH UNBIBLICAL LIBERTARIANS WHO ARE BEING USED TO UNDERMINE/ RE-DEFINE “CONSERVATISM”.
Fox News and other faltering -failing – and declining “Conservative ” voices in America have been using young libertarians pushing “free markets” and Hayek to steadily replace and redefine the Conservative voice in America for years. Christian organizations have been doing the same thing in biblical Christian public discourse. This is a DOOMED EFFORT no matter how well intentioned it may be on the part of some who follow it.
Libertarians do not care about social and moral issues. They care about budgets and smaller government while ignoring the VAST and growing cost of government intervention via “social programs ” in supposed response to the social and moral ills Libertarians think can be ignored in favor of their limited agenda. It is a circular and empty centrist position which is totally unsustainable -especially in these dark days of cultural demolition.
ENTER CONSERVATIVE BAPTIST NETWORK AND CHARLIE KIRK
The Southern Baptist Convention is also a movement in massive and rapid decline .The SBC once boasted 16 million members in its 47,000 plus churches and missions organizations reaching across America and the World. But the SBC, it’s seminaries and missions arms NAMB and IMB have been on the WOKE Wagon for over a decade. Baptist leaders tied the denomination into the tangled rats nest of Faith Based Partnerships with government funding and oversight . Covid 19 Response and Vaccine mandates and “Refugee Crisis” and resettlement have made this issue even more problematic .
The SBC whose Lifeway Research just admitted that Covid lockdowns and fears have taken its active attendance down from @5.2 million to a new low of 3.6 million actual active attendance on an average Sunday morning in Baptist church services. Church “Planting ” strategies have failed to reverse such trends as the SBC is now firmly in the grips of the #MeToo movement. The Baptist #MeToo movement since 2018 is using sex abuse victims to advance the flood of the feminist/LGBTQ/ Racial activist of BLM and more into the national spotlight and onto the modern Diversity Equity and Inclusion / Justice agenda.
The SBC emerged from it’s 2022 annual meetings in Anaheim California set to implement “Reforms” which will forever alter the Biblical Stance on faith, family, gender roles, sexual standards inside its churches and institutions according to the global DE&I metrics. With little hope of survival after the #MeToo activist are done with it- the SBC saw a new group formed called the Conservative Baptist Network. Some of the core convictional biblical conservatives left in SBC leadership joined the leadership of CBN. BUT just as storm clouds gathered over Anaheim and the SBC elite were voting to appease the activist and hand their movement over- CBN held some of its key meetings during the Convention and HOSTED PRO GAY RIGHTS CHARLIE KIRK to speak to CNB conservative pastors.
THE CBN EVENT WITH CHARLIE KIRK COMPLETE WITH 3Cs POINT SERMON .
CHARLIE KIRK AS A BAPTIST PREACHER? NOVEL BUT NOT REALISTIC GIVEN THE SOURCE.
KIRKS MESSAGE IS QUOTED IN BAPTIST STANDARD
“During his remarks at the network breakfast, Kirk labeled the group’s supporters as courageous pastors resisting the influence of liberalism in the evangelical church. He contrasted them with “cowardly pastors” who care only “about budgets and buildings and baptisms” and “complicit pastors” who march with Black Lives Matters and “hang pride flags.”
“Our beautiful faith is under attack from within,” he said.
“Kirk urged pastors to stand for liberty—seeing mask mandates and COVID-related shutdowns during the pandemic as signs of government tyranny. He also told them that if “America falls” then it will be harder for Baptists to spread the gospel.”
“If we don’t recognize that we all have to agree on liberty and the gospel, we’re all going to be sharing our theological disputes in prison,” he said.”
CBN LEADERS MARK THE SBC DRIFT INTO LIBERALISM BY A SOFENING ON LGBTQ ON THE CNB WEBSITE ADVERTISING THEIR MEETINGS AT AHAHEIM .
“What is going on with the Southern Baptist Convention?”
“The SBC is drifting in a liberal direction. Critical Race Theory has crept into our seminaries, women preaching is becoming more accepted, some have begun to soften on LGBTQ issues, and plummeting baptism numbers reveal that the Great Commission is no longer the central focus of our denomination.”
WHAT IS CBNs REMEDY FOR THE LIBERAL DRIFT ?
“What is the solution?”
“The solution is to turn the SBC back to the Bible. We need conservative leaders who show by both their words and their actions that the Bible is completely true, sufficient and authoritative.”
“How can you help save the SBC?”
“Attend the 2022 Annual Meeting of the Southern Baptist Convention as a messenger from your SBC church and vote for conservative candidates and biblical motions and resolutions. Whether the SBC goes the way of other mainline denominations in relaxing a high view of Scripture and allowing liberalism to creep in depends on whether the people in the pews are willing to get involved. The saying goes, “as goes the Southern Baptist Convention, so goes the nation.” The SBC is one of few remaining roadblocks keeping liberalism from overtaking the United States. We need your help to bring the SBC back to the Bible.”
CBN makes these bold statements but thing ushers in Charlie Kirk to preach a little sermon to SBC/CBN pastors on “not compromising” on LGBTQ/ Pride flags & marching with BLM issues?
WHERE DOES KIRK REALLY STAND ON LGBT/GAY RIGHTS WHILE HE CALLS ON SBC PASTORS NOT TO COMPROMISE?
Kirk is well known for his pro-gay rights stance to most casual observers but apparently not to CBN leaders.
SOME EXAMPLES OF KIRKS PAST AND RECENT PRO-HOMOSEXUAL RIGHTS PUBLIC STANDS AND SHOWBOATING
THESE INCLUDE HIS ABUSE OF CONCERNED CONSERVATIVES , GASLIGHTING AND EVEN FIRING OF TRUE CONSERVATIVES IN HIS EVENTS AND ORGANIZATION.
Kirk likens “banning LGBTQ activity” to Palestinian dictators in Aug 2019
“Breaking: Today the dictators of the Palestinian Authority just BANNED all LGBT activity Meanwhile Israel has massive gay pride parades Why is the left so silent when human rights are abused by the PA?”
“I believe marriage is one man one woman”
“Also gay people should be welcome in the conservative movement As Christians we are called to love everyone I will always stand against people who wish to establish their own personal values as a reason to kick others out of our movement.”
Kirk accused the person who expressed concern over Kirks stance on LGBTQ in gaslighting fashion by implying something was “weird about his (guy expressing concern) focus on” the issue. The VERY INFORMED question was brining light on the fact that “sexual liberation is a form of political control”.
MEANWHILE KIRK DID NOT ANSWER THE CONCERNS BROUGHT UP BY THE CONSERVATIVE AUDIENCE MEMBER
“TPUSA Charlie Kirk doesn’t answer questions about how to conserve Christian values.”
Readers can find this interview on youtube titled
“Culture War – Real Conservatives”
In 2018 TPUSA Summitt Kirk was interviewing with guest a popular gay podcaster .One reporter observed the impact Kirk and other Libertarian views on social issues is having on some of the young conservative audiences who are drawn by the rhetoric of the centristor supportive position .
At Turning Point USA’s Summit for Conservative Teens, Dave Rubin Said He Was Gay Married—and the Crowd Cheered
“I’m gay married. You people don’t care about that, do you?” They did not.”
On gay marriage, the ship has indeed sailed. Never was that more apparent than at Turning Point USA’s High School Leadership Summit on Wednesday, where an audience of hundreds* of conservative teens erupted into wild applause after speaker Dave Rubin said he was in a same-sex relationship.
“I’m gay married,” said Rubin. “You people don’t care about that, do you?”
They did not. In fact, they cheered Rubin.

“Make no mistake: This was a deeply conservative, politically active audience. When former Fox News anchor Eric Bolling polled them earlier in the day, I estimated just 40 percent of them self-identified as libertarian or center-right (Trump-skeptical, in other words). The rest are conservatives. The vast majority seem both pro-life and passionate about the pro-life cause. I saw Make America Great Again hats and National Rifle Association hats. The teens cheered for Jordan Peterson and Ben Shapiro. They even broke into chants of “lock her up” whenever anyone uttered the name “Hillary Clinton”—something that attracted considerable derision from the mainstream media. (This was not an edifying moment for Attorney General Jeff Sessions, though the press made too much of it: He didn’t actually join the chant.)”
“If these teens represent the future of the right, then the right will continue to be pro-Trump, pro-gun, and pro-life. But thwarting gay marriage has faded as an animating cause, and that’s certainly something for liberals and libertarians to be happy about.”
KIRK MIGHT MAINTAIN HE IS EVOLVING ON THIS ISSUE BUT THE LATE MAY 2022 EXPULSION OF A TURNING POINT USA WORKER FOR MONKEYPOX CONCERNS RELATED TO THE LGBTQ ROLE IN ITS RAPID SPREAD BROUGHT THIS FROM TPUSA
“The story post that got me kicked out of Turning Point USA.”
“Expressing any Christian viewpoint further right wing than the 2012 Democratic Party is now too politically incorrect for the biggest “conservative” organisation in the entire country.”
“Turning Point USA is not conservative, they peddle destructive ultra capitalist talking points and libertarian cultural degeneration. I have many friends that I greatly respect within the organisation, but it’s time to call it for what it is.”
“There’s nothing wrong with making a big tent movement, but it’s not a big tent when you kick out any actual authentic conservatives who won’t bend to leftist cultural engineering. By doing this, Turning Point is pushing America further to the Left.”
“Also, just to reiterate, STOP BEING GAY!
“The biggest “conservative” organisation in the country kicks people out for spreading Christian views. They’re more concerned with being politically correct to appease their crony leftist donors and LGBT groomers than actually helping Americans. This nation is so screwed.”
“As transvestites strip for children at gay bars, the biggest “conservative” organization in the country is more concerned with purging their ranks of people spreading Christian doctrine. People like my cool friends and I who confront these disgusting groomers. Think about that.”
LIBERTARIANS ARE NOT BIBLICAL CONSERVATIVES
According to Kirk’s organization- Turning Point USA :
“Turning Point USA, which lists its priorities as “fiscal responsibility, free markets and limited government,”
This message allowing for culturally and politically correct rhetoric has been popular among younger conservatives.BUT it is not Christian or Biblical Conservative nor are the two compatible.
CONSERVATIVE BAPTIST NETWORK DID NOT ADVERTISE CHARLIE KIRK WAS SPEAKING
Kirks name and image are glaringly not included in ads for CBN’s sold out meetings
YET CBN BOASTED ABOUT KIRK’S MESSAGE
PUBLISHED JUNE 22 2022
“Southern Baptists hear calls to stand boldly for truth in humble fear of God during sold-out Anaheim breakfast evenT”
Charlie Kirk, founder and president of Turning Point USA and widely-known conservative voice within culture, received a warm welcome from attendees as he took the stage to encourage pastors to remain vigilant.
“We need to focus on the most important thing we can do–spreading the gospel and winning people for Jesus Christ,” Kirk said. “We need more pastors right now that are willing to stand up against the world and for the Word. We’re here to fight for truth and righteousness.”
Kirk described three types of churches and three types of pastors found in American pulpits today–the courageous pastor, the cowardly pastor, and the complicit pastor.
“Don’t be passive in a time when you need to be bold,” Kirk said. “Be willing to stand behind the pulpit and preach the truth. If you don’t believe in the inerrancy of Scripture, you are going to begin to entertain all of these crazy ideas. Make no mistake, the threat ahead of us is a real threat…courage and boldness will be rewarded.
“Who better positioned than the church to crush a movement that is founded on lies?” Kirk asked. “Who better than us as Christians who have the truth to stand up against this predatory movement? Who better than the church?”
Standing for smaller government and less spending while ignoring actual human cost and intentional deconstruction of social and cultural moorings and institutions is neither Conservative nor Christian.
How did some of the most outspoken -anti-WOKE voices in the remaining Baptist world escape this reality?
Just as pro feminist- LGBTQ & racial BLM supporting radicals hired to implode their movement stand at the door to be voted in -to “REFORM” THE SBC with CRT and Intersectionality -Driven -Diversity Equity and Inclusion…. CBN/Baptist leaders are playing footsies with and hosting a key player whose voice is undermining their own Biblical stance and HOPE of preserving their movement.
Perhaps pragmatic leaders thought that by inviting this young talking head Charlie Kirk they could broaden their appeal to younger Baptist . Perhaps it is much in the same way they were playing to the older crowds while inviting one of the most embattled pastors in America over covering up Sex Abuse in his church and ministry ( Californian and non Baptist John MacArthur ) while the SBC annual meeting was focused on dealing with THIS VERY ISSUE.
CBN LEADERS NOT ONLY IS KIRK NOT A CONSERVATIVE- HE IS NOT A BAPTIST AND NOT A PASTOR AND NOT A PREACHER.
So why did CBN platform Charlie Kirk ? Perhaps it was an ignorant mistake .That is still not excuse and does not blunt to sharp MOCKERY when a highly funded ,culturally compromised political activist and organizer leading a new political PAC who has nothing to lose but funding -urges Baptist Conservative Pastors to stand firm against “the influence of liberalism in the evangelical church. He contrasted them with “cowardly pastors” who care only “about budgets and buildings and baptisms” and “complicit pastors” who march with Black Lives Matters and “hang pride flags.”
Charlie Kirk cannot escape accountability while seeking to play both sides of the proverbial fence while the culture and the church -especially the SBC- are collapsing .But it may be possible to grab a speaking engagement , a check and likely win over a few new supporters without being noticed for his duplicity and mockery of concerned Biblical Christians .
Conservative Baptist Network , Founders , non Woke leaders- please if you are wanting to help save the SBC and “#Change the Direction”- this is not the way to go about it. What about some old fashion repentance and call to prayer and ignore the voices calling from the mushy middle …the DC and the Baptist Swamp.
