PINEVILLE, La. (LBM) – Coach Dale Clayton, a 40-year veteran of college baseball and athletic administration will speak on the “The Biblical Response to Critical Race Theory” Monday, Sept. 20 at the C3 conference.
The C3 (Christ, Church, Culture) conference was started by LC President Rick Brewer to discuss today’s issues through biblical truth not only the campus community, but the surrounding communities as well.
And there is no bigger topic today than the critical race theory. The theory is based on the idea that race is a social construct that has been embedded in many policies and legal systems instead of it being the product of individual bias or prejudice.”
The conference starts at 6:30 p.m. in Guinn Auditorium and the public is invited to attend. Masks must be on worn in the building.
“Critical Race Theory as a Marxist construct is problematic on multiple fronts and antithetical to the Gospel,” Brewer said. “As a Christ-centered college built on the truth of God’s Word we view our culture through the lens of Scripture. Coach Clayton will address the fallacies of CRT by offering biblical application and truth.
“According to Christopher F. Rufo, founder and director of Battlefront, a public policy research center, Christ-followers must ‘point out the dishonesty of the historical narrative on which critical race theory is predicated, we must promote the true story of America — a story that is honest about injustices in American history, but that places them in the context of our nation’s high ideals and the progress we have made towards realizing them,” Brewer said. “Genuine American history is rich with stories of achievements and sacrifices that will move the hearts of Americans — in stark contrast to the grim and pessimistic narrative pressed by critical race theorists.”’
Clayton teaches a small group and chairs the Racial Reconciliation Group at Milligan University and Brentwood Baptist Church. He has held a position as the vice president for Nations of Coaches since 2012.
