Pro-Abortion National Association of Evangelical Board Member Picked by Democrats

And you still don't think the National Association of Evangelicals has gone liberal? Then you just haven't been paying attention.

Here's a case in point.

Rev. Dr. Derrick Harkins is the pastor of the Nineteenth Street Baptist Church, one of the largest historic black congregations in Washington, D.C.  He has been serving for quite awhile as a board member of the National Association of Evangelicals even though he also serves on an advisory board for the pro-abortion rights Religious Coalition for Reproductive Choice and on the board of Faith and Public Life, the advocacy group funded by leftist philanthropies like George Soros and the Tides Foundation.

And now Rev. Harkins has been picked by the Democratic National Committee to head up their religious outreach program.

Sad? Sure. But it's sadder still for those of you in evangelical churches who are giving money (probably unwittingly) to keep the NAE's increasingly liberal programs going. Ask your pastor if your church in any way supports the NAE and, if so, start leading the charge to get it stopped.

For more on the NAE's recent wackiness, see this post from last year, "More Disappointment with the National Association of Evangelicals."
