Dean of Theology at African Christian University Voddie Baucham denounced the Black Lives Matter movement, saying people, and Christians especially, need to separate the issues from the movement.

Baucham said that people are being labelled as racist for not agreeing with everything for which the organization stands.

"And what worries me is that there are so many Christians who are not taking that stand," he said on Glenn Beck's radio show. "We have to separate this movement from the issues. I know that [Black Lives Matter] is a phrase that is part of an organization. It is a trademark phrase. And it's a phrase designed to use Black people."

Baucham said he believes the Black Lives Matter movement is "dangerous" and "vicious" and encouraged people to read what the organizations really supports — which includes LGBT advocacy and dismantling the nuclear family.

"And so if I'm really concerned about issues in the black community – and I am – then I have to refuse, and I have to repudiate that organization." Baucham said. "Because they stand against that for which I am advocating."
