I wrote this on Facebook a few hours ago:

Finally someone with clout speaks out on Al Mohler and Russell Moore’s nonsensical stance as advocates of #NeverTrump, a position he says will put Hillary in the White House.

A member of the Foundation Board of Southern Seminary for years, currently an associate of the foundation, and a financial supporter who’s donated thousands as well as given annual grants to professors.

Louisville, KY attorney, Jack Richardson says,

“I and others on the board could not disagree more with Mohler’s position on Trump. Moreover, many professors disagree as well, but can’t speak out.” He further notes, “Mohler’s and Moore’s “Never Trump” position I find borne of false piety and self-righteousness.”

The attorney pulls the rug right out from under Drs. Mohler and Moore:

“I’m sure if some of the content of the discussions in closed-door meetings of Moore and Mohler while others were present were disclosed, the hypocrisy of their stand on Trump would be humiliating and humbling. Perhaps that is what is needed.”

Note also. I’ve often ‘heard’ Russell Moore was identified with the Democratic party. Richardson indicates he has first hand knowledge:

“It’s not so surprising that Russell Moore is a “Never Trumper,” as he was always fond of reminding me that he was a Democrat. Of course he could never reconcile how his support for the positions of his party was at such odds with his Christian faith yet he continued supporting what is abjectly opposed to what donors who support his institution pay him to do.”

Read his full piece here:

“I make no excuses for the man (Donald Trump) and if he were as bad as Hillary Clinton, his policy positions would still win the day for me.”
