Beth Moore has recently been dubbed the queen of christian social activism. Unafraid to voice her opinion relating to various topics from the #metoo movement, to speaking out against mass shootings, particularly the one in El Paso that appears to have been motivated by racism and a hatred of immigrants. She has recently been in almost every Christian Lifestyle or Christian News publication.
At a time when gun deaths are rampant, some people are feeling that it is not fair to only offer thoughts and prayers and yet remaining silent by not speaking out against this horrible endemic. Some people are accusing pastors of not using their freedom to speak out against gun violence and instead choosing to ignore the topic entirely in order to avoid controversy — this concern has been targeted especially against evangelical pastors with sentiments in various spaces reading along the lines of ‘what is it with evangelical pastors who don’t want to infuriate a conservative Christian base.’
However, Beth Moore has taken a different route from fellow Evangelicals and has almost become the poster child for lighting up twitter with fiery topics. Moore has urged her peers to speak out on these issue. She made it very clear in her her twitter post that: Silence is complicity.
