‘People Will Die’: WOKE Attack on Passion Conference for Being ‘Ableist, Racist, Egotistical’
Not everyone is celebrating some 65,000 Christian college students who gathered in Atlanta for the two-day Passion 2022 conference.
Holly Stallcup, who started Rise, Inc. to help women’s ministry, went on a lengthy tweet thread accusing the Christian leaders at Passion of failing to disciple the next generation.
“Every single speaker and worship leader should repent of their involvement. They should make whatever reparations they can to the city of Atlanta, healthcare workers and the disability community,” she tweeted.
“[Louie Giglio] and Shelley Giglio have built their entire ministry around the next generation. This week they have led the next generation to not believe and follow science, to not honor the healthcare servant leaders in our communities, to ignore the disabled and most vulnerable,” she wrote.
Stallcup accused Passion Music band of showing “the next generation how to idolize one iteration of worship above love of neighbor;” Cody Carnes, Maverick City Music, and Brooke Ligertwood of Hillsong Worship of misleading and deceiving the young adults: “Some of them will die in the next month because of your lack of theologically sound leadership.” And Kari Jobe and others of having worship that is a “clanging gong.”
She accused “Duck Dynasty” star Sadie Robertson and her husband, Christian Huff, of leading “the children of God into a hollow gathering that will kill people in a matter of days.” She claimed: “Their leadership is not of God.”
David Platt and Christine Caine were implored to publicly pull their support: “You will look back and find some of these young adults will walk away from the faith when they realize how you led them in this moment.”
And in a similar fashion, Stallcup went after Ben Stuart, Jennie Allen, Levi Lusko, and Tim Tebow.
She said she hopes publications track the number of people who die from COVID after attending the conference, and she also called for people to boycott the leaders and their ministries: “Stop buying their books. Stop attending their events. Stop platforming their voices. This is not a small mistake, not a difference of opinion. This is ableist, racist, egotistical. Leading astray and harming the people they claim to care about and serve.”
She concluded: “We must acknowledge how these primarily white college students/early twenties are behaving differently than their more marginalized counter parts. AND those older adults with power hold more responsibility.”
National radio host and best-selling author Todd Starnes took issue with Stallcup’s comments.
“Passion is one of the most life-changing events in the nation. And that terrifies atheists, agnostics and woke people who claim to be followers of Christ,” Starnes said. “Only a woke leftist would get triggered by thousands of college students worshipping Jesus. My advice is to pray for the godless heathens.”
A pastor from Florida, who sent a group to Passion, also responded to her thread.
“While you continue to live in fear of Covid, they chose to worship,” Matt Gilmore wrote. “While you were all condemning them, passion was loving them.”
