Evangelical author and culture warrior Eric Metaxas allegedly assaulted a protester in Washington, D.C. last night. Metaxas lunged and allegedly struck the protector with his fist. The video was captured and its spreading on Twitter. This blog is calling for Washington, D.C. police to investigate this possibly felony.
“Violence is the last refuge of the incompetent.“
“You have heard that it was said, ‘Eye for eye, and tooth for tooth.’[a] 39 But I tell you, do not resist an evil person. If anyone slaps you on the right cheek, turn to them the other cheek also. 40 And if anyone wants to sue you and take your shirt, hand over your coat as well.
Matthew 5:38-40 NIV
This blog has written a number of articles about Eric Metaxas. This blog used to have a deep amount of respect for Metaxas. Today however, he has become the poster boy for Christian nationalism and how evangelicalism is deeply corrupt. This blog could descend into monitoring the collapse and decline of Eric Metaxas. Metaxas who calls New York City his home if my research is correct. Last night he was in Washington, D.C. to attend President Trump’s acceptance speech at the virtual Republican National Convention at the White House. Afterward when a protester told a crowd that Eric was in “fuck you” Eric Metaxas physically struck the person on their bike with his fist. This has been caught on video and is trending on Twitter. At first people thought it was a senator who attacked the protester until Eric Metaxas was identified by his pink shirt that he wore to Trump’s acceptance speech. Check the video and discussion below. I am going to insert a number of tweets.
This blog calls the Washington, D.C. area my home. And I am wanting the D.C. police to investigate Eric Metaxas for the allegations of physical assault which is a felony. No matter how much a person disagrees with another person you can not physically assault them. Its time for the D.C. police to investigate and process this situation. This is why we have the police to preserve and protect the community and the laws within.
