Slappy The Dummy to Lead ERLC While Dr. Moore Recovers from Surgery
Nashville, TN - With Dr. Russell Moore recently announcing an extended hiatus from social media while he recovers from multiple medical procedures, the Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission have announced the appointment of an interim director to serve in his stead.
While some may have anticipated the elevation of existing ERLC fellows such as Dan Darling, Andrew Walker, the infamous KSP (Karen Swallow Prior), the public policy arm of the SBC cited the need to find someone who could imitate Moore's "nasty, heartlessness" and who could at least conceivably pass as a "closet liberal."
"No one meets that criteria quite like Slappy the Dummy," explained SBC President Steve Gaines. "He is nasty, has no heart, and fits in a closet. He also looks a little like Russ. He's a great fit."
For his part, Slappy has declared himself to be overjoyed to fill the role, saying he's glad to be in a position to speak the truth boldly without "feeling like other people are putting words in my mouth."
