When the Southern Baptists meet near Disneyland, do they make a sound (for exvangelicals)?
I have to admit, unless there are fistfights, I can’t imagine anything of note coming out of the SBC annual meeting.
Oh, and nice misdirection by the SBC. Wait, there’s a large sexual abuse scandal? Look, Rick Warren ordained women! The horror!
The SBC will always SBC.
Potential future SBC President Tom Ascol thinks they’ve lost hold of the Bible. I would argue that the SBC has lost hold of Jesus. Of course, I guess that assumes the SBC ever had any sort of grasp on Jesus in the first place. Which, considering how they were founded, is a dubious proposition.
Oh, and one more thing. I think Baptist grandmothers who run Awana are the nicest people on the planet, from my experience.
