Welcome David Rogers and Joe Blackmon

Hope you're here to dialogue and not just calumniate against this board as whole or Wade Burleson in particular.

Interesting welcome. Do I perhaps have a reputation for calumniating?

Not to my knowledge, although I guess Joe's reputation could involve that. ;-) But there's been some recent heat on the board, and as the person approving you guys' memberships (you came in at the same time), I felt a twinge of anticipatory trepidation.

Welcome David Rogers. We have a small connection. My father was a very close friend of a mentor to your father. I called him Uncle Allen.

Cathy,

Thanks for the welcome. I am not sure if I'll spend a lot of time over here. But, you never know.

Haruo,

If the goal over here is friendly and open dialogue, your welcome was not the most hospitable one I have ever had. :wink:

My purpose in commenting was that someone else brought me up in a previous comment, and Stephen Fox commented over at the blog in which I am a contributor (SBC Impact) directing me to the stream on Cecil Sherman and Al Mohler. While I agree with the general sentiment that there is a certain amount of respect due to anyone at the season around their death, the truth is that Dr. Sherman, from the information I have, has not always shown that same respect to my father. I wouldn't have seen the need to bring this up, though, if others had not seen the need to make the contrary point.

As far as Joe is concerned, I have admonished him regarding comments over at SBC Impact on occasion. But, I think you might be well-advised to do your homework a little better before throwing me in the same sack with him.

In any case, thanks for the permission to comment here. I will try to be as respectful here as I would ask others to be at my own site.
David Rogers

Well, as I said, it was Joe that I was really worried about. One of the things I do before approving anybody (about 95% of the applications for membership are from spammers of the sex-and-drugs-runner variety, mostly very obvious but occasionally very artfully concealed) is to try to determine (from evidence on the Web) whether a person is a person, and if so, whether there is reason to worry that they may be uncongenial here. Your own reality was not in doubt, and I found no evidence that you would be unacceptably argumentative (we tend to kick out people who use strong language to impugn other posters' character or salvation), but Tim Rogers, with whom you have a surname in common, who had been here a long time without tripping my red flag wires had just been acting out here, and some of the evidence of Joe Blackmon's reality that I found in my vetting expedition gave me cause to worry about him. So the combination of his prior verbiage elsewhere and your last name caused me to greet you in that less than congenial way, for which I apologize.

I am about three weeks behind in my welcome to David Rogers to Bl.com.
I am honored he mentioned my name in regard the invitation at the Impact.
He to date has been quite civil to me there; though I am not sure what to do with his remarks about Cecil Sherman, David's Dad Adrian Rogers, and slavery.

I do not mean this as a backhanded welcome as I was not exactly sure where to place the following on this board; but I do want to share this comment I just left Rogers and his www.sbcimpact.net colleague Dave Miller on the GCR:

David Rogers and David Miller's last two comments were interesting indeed.
While I especially appreciate the earnestness and in my experience apparent good will of David Rogers and hold no particular animus toward Miller--just find him little vacuous on too many subjects he appears to think he has mastered; there is something pretty sophomoric seems to me in this framework they espouse for autonomy and solidarity.
Nice sounding words but for me it rings hollow given all the good Baptists that have been arbitrarily excluded from the conversation in the last 50 years.
To cut to the chase, Bill Hull's new book on the differing approaches of Roy Honeycutt and Duke McCall to resolve a much greater conundrum they faced in the early 80's as they tried to navigate the unwieldly baptist ecclesiology of autonomy and cooperation I think provides a much more substantive framework than Rogers has laid out abvove, though he expresses his point pretty well.
I mean this with no arrogance or nothing of the sort; just an honest take on your batting about here.

The virtue in the grand notions of autonomy and cooperation in Baptist life was taken down considerable notches in the 80's, and there is something a little unwittingly simpleminded in your attempts here to act as if your chastity in this matter is intact.
Again I hope you appreciate my sincerity in this strong reprimand here.
