Christian author Jen Hatmaker responded to the Nashville Statement by connecting it to the appearance of white supremacists in Charllottesville.
As USA Today explains, “Christian author Jen Hatmaker of Austin, Texas, who came out in favor of same-sex marriage and whose books have been removed from the Southern Baptist Convention’s LifeWay Christian Stores because of that philosophy, called the timing of the statement callous because of the Aug. 12 Unite the Right white supremacists’ rally in Charlottesville, Va., and protester Heather Heyer’s death.”

That’s right, this is no time to talk biblical truth, because hey, Nazis.
Christians in America need to prepare themselves mentally for slander of all kinds, including being identified with the alt-right. That there is no logical connection will not stop the accusations. That is how the devil operates. We have only two options: abandon the witness of the gospel, or face false accusation.
Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
