Most likely, most of us would agree that racism really does still exist in America, and our country is in need of healing. So, along comes Black Lives Matter, and most Christians want to affirm that black lives do matter. But what is the group really up to? Are they just about promoting racial equality?
To understand about the group's true agenda, you need only look to their website, as Life Site News did. The following very concerning "Guiding Principles" were found, and as Christians, we need to know about them.
BLM supports the dissolution of the nuclear family: "We are committed to disrupting the Western-prescribed nuclear family structure requirement by supporting each other as extended families and “villages” that collectively care for one another, and especially “our” children to the degree that mothers, parents and children are comfortable."
BLM supports obliterating gender truth: "We are committed to embracing and making space for trans brothers and sisters to participate and lead. We are committed to being self-reflexive and doing the work required to dismantle cis-gender privilege and uplift Black trans folk, especially Black trans women who continue to be disproportionately impacted by trans-antagonistic violence."
BLM supports the non-Biblical view on homosexuality: "We are committed to fostering a queer‐affirming network. When we gather, we do so with the intention of freeing ourselves from the tight grip of heteronormative thinking or, rather, the belief that all in the world are heterosexual unless s/he or they disclose otherwise."
Life Site News says it best when they describe what is deeply wrong with Black Lives Matter's guiding principles: "To sum up, Black Lives Matter seems to believe that the answers to the problems faced by the black community include embracing transgenderism, attacking the already weakened-family structure (and thus eliminating the safest place for children to be nurtured and loved), and 'freeing' the black community from the 'tight grip' of 'heteronormative thinking,' which presumably led to the oppressive family structure and the transphobic cis-supremacy in the first place. It’s also ironic to note that in all of their Guiding Principles, they do not even mention the opposition to law enforcement that characterizes so much of their protests and public rhetoric. Apparently the heteronormative family poses an even greater danger to black families than purported institutionalized racism does."
