"Jesus, a woman said somehing we didn't like.  What should we do?"

"Turn the other cheek.  Fire her husband"

Yeah, sounds about right.

"Thomas told Oglesby that the church asked the writer's husband, Bill Thomas, to resign..."  Thereby highlighting her point in a fabulously bright color.

Briefly worked at a strip club in Atlanta in the nineties. Business went up about 300% every year the week of the Southern Baptist Convention. Best week of the year.

I finally got through it was pretty anti-climactic.  Basically she criticized the southern baptists for criticizing the boy scouts for allowing gay kids to join. They didn't like it and asked her husband to resign.

So, she acted like an actual Christian and they acted like a bunch of hypocrites. Seems to me they should be the ones resigning. Turn in your casserole dishes at the door...or go join the bigoted idiots in Topeka--declare your crazy for everyone to see and make your hatred and anti-Christianity abundantly clear instead of clothing it in respectability.

That doesn't surprise me.  I seen a Baptist church that would fire the pastor for allowing boy scouts to wear shorts.

/not kidding
//no one could wear shorts even during SC summers
///I quit hanging out with them during the summer

Yet they seem to be organized enough to pressure a pastor to quit when his wife says something the majority of them disagree with.

copypasta of FBXRD link


A humor column in a Kentucky newspaper that made fun of the Southern Baptist Convention's opposition to the Boy Scouts of America decision to admit gay members, even referring to the convention as "shiate Baptists," could cost the writer's husband his job as an associate pastor and minister of music at First Baptist Church of Madisonville, an SBC congregation, Savannah Oglesby reports for The Messenger of Madisonville.

Angela Thomas, a regular columnist for the daily paper, wrote: "Some might assume that because the Boy Scouts have addressed the issue, it must mean that Scout packs are filled with 10-year-old boys insisting on wearing their Scout caps at a rakish tilt and over-accessorizing their uniforms. ... Sexuality doesn't come up and isn't relative to typical Scouting activities but now, thanks to Southern Baptists, the parents of little innocent Scouts everywhere are having to have The Talk. The Boy Scouts of America has been forced to confront this issue and cannot hide behind the freedom granted to religious organizations like the Southern Baptist Convention to condemn certain behaviors they deem unacceptable and excluded people based on their interpretation of the Bible."

In addition to the Scouts, Thomas wrote, the convention also rejects "the Democratic Party, Disney, the TeleTubbies, and any Baptists that aren't Southern," Thomas wrote. "Southern Baptists have little by little abandoned public schools and civic organizations. They are too sanctimonious to participate in Easter egg hunts and trick-or-treating. Santa and the Easter bunny are simply the devil in disguise, and cable television and the Internet are his playground. The Boy Scouts are his evil minions."

Thomas told Oglesby that the church asked the writer's husband, Bill Thomas, to resign, and he declined, sending "a letter requesting more dialogue with the personnel committee. We haven't heard an official response back from that, and that was on Monday." The newspaper couldn't reach the pastor for comment.

Thomas said her husband was asked about the column and replied, "I did read it, I agreed with what she said and I don't censor what my wife does." Oglesby's story concluded, "She said a celebration of her husband's 10 years of service at the church was scheduled for July 7, but for now, the event has been canceled."

The Messenger, which has a pay-per-view website, has received two letters to the editor, one criticizing the column and one supporting it.

Meh. Those two are too Christian to be Southern Baptists anyway.

The Rural Blog: Wife's humor column in rural Kentucky newspaper could cost pastor his job
Special to KyForward

The message and the reality diverged about 90 AD. It used to be a nice little Jewish sect, remember.

I'm currently reading a book called "Stealing Jesus: How Fundamentalism Betrays Christianity."  It is largely concerned with making that very point, but it has quite a lot to say about the Southern Baptist Convention.   Here's a link to the intro if you're interested.

"shiate Baptists"   LOL

Although it's probably insulting to real shiates. Who are probably more tolerant and open-minded than Southern Baptists.

Those people (the Baptists) are always shiatting a brick of outrage over something.

I see nothing wrong with this. Jesus declared people unworthy to lead in the faith all the time. Quit telling us how to run our own religion, jerk.
