Those decrying the Proponents of Social Justice are in league with the same?
Or is this a case of 'ministerial prostitution'?

(Warning: this is long and hard hitting but an eye-opener to the compromising going on amongst 'Conference Speakers')

What you mean with social justice? Comes this term and the term "intersectonality" from the world, then they have nothing to search in an christian life. What we are, our position, our worth, our identity is combined with and from Jesus himself. Not from thinking contractions and worth models which come from the world.
And so far this brothers are right when they claim that " social justice" and " intersectionality" is a danger for christians, because they bring in a false view about what the Individuum is.

What you say is true, but that's not the crux of the issue here.

The issue here is with those who one day decry the dangers and evils of the 'Social Justice Movement' (and rightly so) that they admit are infiltrating the Church, but turn around the next day and join them in Conference all applauding each other. This reeks of hypocrisy and much of the Church is being played a fool by this 'Con Game'.

It's quite possible for people to speak at a conference and yet vigorously disagree. Mere participation in a conference together should not be construed as wholehearted embrace of one another's positions. There is a time for everything.

I guess you didn't watch the video as it was long so I don't blame you.

This is a case where group A criticizes and signs statements against group B's teachings and practices and then the next day and in subsequent meetings applauds and shmoozes up to the very ones' they had criticized. With meetings called 'The Mission of God' subtitled 'A Biblical Understanding of Missions' or 'The Shepherd's Conference' or 'The Gospel Coalition' you would expect these are conferences that would invite those with like minded ideas, not a conference debate-slugfest. No this is all scamming for prestige, status and popularity, something our Lord warned us about.

Luke 20:46 KJV
[46] Beware of the scribes, which desire to walk in long robes, and love greetings in the markets, and the highest seats in the synagogues, and the chief rooms at feasts;

Luke 11:43 KJV
[43] Woe unto you, Pharisees! for ye love the uppermost seats in the synagogues, and greetings in the markets.

Matthew 23:5-8 KJV
[5] But all their works they do for to be seen of men: they make broad their phylacteries, and enlarge the borders of their garments, [6] And love the uppermost rooms at feasts, and the chief seats in the synagogues, [7] And greetings in the markets, and to be called of men, Rabbi, Rabbi. [8] But be not ye called Rabbi: for one is your Master, even Christ; and all ye are brethren.

Just an other manifestation of the apostasy that has taken hold of Christendom. The wolves are calling themselves shepherds, while the sheep flounder in confusion.
