Matt Chandler and the Unbearable Weight of Wokeness — Christian Research Network

“This should come as no surprise because social justice is not biblical, it is worldly, and the eyes of a man are never satisfied (Proverbs 27:20). Women pastors were not enough, and so we must have gay pastors. Gay pastors aren’t enough, and so we need transgender pastors. And on and on it will go as long as the church continues to ride this train.”

(Bill Perkins)  The Village Church, pastored by Matt Chandler, is well known for being “woke.” But apparently, that wasn’t enough to satisfy the organizers of the Circles Conference, which is billed as “a three-day creative conference for graphic & UX designers, illustrators, and makers.”….

David Roark, who is the communications and resources director for The Village Church, was invited to speak at the upcoming conference until it was discovered that he worked for an organization with “openly discriminatory policies and practices towards women and the LGBTQ+ community.”

Anyone who is even vaguely familiar with Chandler and his mega-church knows that the Village is hardly a bastion of alpha-maleness whose members are out prowling the streets looking to bash gays or harass anyone wearing skinny jeans and sipping latte.
