Dr. Wright: Something's gone wrong

aiming at BibleA leading evangelical is leveling serious charges against those he says have wandered from the truth.

When hundreds of thousands of marriage supporters and free speech advocates converged on Chick-fil-a restaurants August 1, 2012 to defend President Dan Cathy's view that marriage is the union of one man and one woman, CBS News covered it fairly:

Chick-Fil-A supporters turned out in force Wednesday to stand up for the fast-food chain. … But it wasn't just about the chicken. … Many showed up to back Dan Cathy, Chick-fil-A's president and COO.

But then in November 2019, when the chicken chain unceremoniously dumped charitable donations to the Salvation Army and Fellowship of Christian Athletes, labeling them "anti-gay," Dr. Frank Wright of Dr. James Kennedy Ministries tells American Family Radio's "Today's Issues" crew that Chick-Fil-A stabbed its supporters in the back.

"I never in my wildest dreams thought we would see evangelical leaders and Christian organizations … begin to walk away from biblical truth in the manner that we're seeing today," Dr. Wright laments.

And Chick-fil-A is not alone in this. The National Association of Evangelicals, an organization Dr. Wright once led, has backed legislation giving special rights to homosexuals. The Southern Baptist Convention has virtue signaled by lending credence to radical leftist dogma in Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality.

"But what really set me off," Dr. Wright continues, "was our friend Andy Stanley, who … said we need to unhitch our faith from the Old Testament; the Old Testament has nothing to say about any behavior whatsoever to the New Testament Christian."

So Dr. Wright is calling these wandering leaders out by name.

"The time has come to use the 'H' word; this is heresy," he insists. "Heresy is not just things you say that are wrong; it's things that are essential to the faith that are deliberately left out."
