Homosexual Son of Former SBC President Publishes Pro-Homosexual Children’s Book: “My Guncle and Me”
Jonathan Merritt is the openly, practicing homosexual son of former Southern Baptist president who was hired and then fired in 2021 by Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, James Merritt. James Merritt, who took aim at conservatives during the 2021 Southern Baptist Convention annual meeting arguing that Critical Race Theory is not a problem in the Church and that Christians shouldn’t concern themselves with fighting against it, is now openly and publicly promoting his homosexual son as “faithful to the gospel.”
In 2021, James publicly promoted his son's preaching urging people to listen to one of his sermons that he preached calling it "brilliant" and "faithful to the gospel."
The elder Merritt's actions ultimately led to him stepping down from a teaching position at Southeastern Seminary. Yet, the former SBC president is allowing some pretty wild stuff to take place under his roof. This past Thanksgiving, the elder Merritt allowed his granddaughter to present his homosexual son with a bracelet with the word "GUNCLE" on it. He then published that on social media.
If the former SBC president, who, by the way, is highly involved in the day-to-day life of the Southern Baptist Convention, is allowing this to take place under his roof, should that disqualify him from the pastorate? Should it disqualify him from any leadership position in the SBC? Sane people would think so—but it doesn't. James Merritt's hands are still in everything SBC-related.
Fast forward to today, and Jonathan Merrit is now publishing a pro-homosexual book geared toward children.
